We are one
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, bond nor free, male nor female. In Christ the old, worldly lines of separation are all blotted out, all one in Christ Jesus. All, without regard to race, blended into one whole” (Galatians 3:28 - People's New Testament). Bing dictionary defines discrimination as unfair treatment of one person or group, usually because of prejudice about race, ethnicity, age, religion, or gender. For so many years discrimination has been apart of the status quo. Sir Lynden Oscar Pindling fought tirelessly and fervently to over come prejudice and discrimination in the Bahamas.

In 1973 the Bahamas became an independent nation, giving blacks the right to equality.
Today we are still fighting discrimination. It is heartbreaking that we cannot look past ones skin color or their race when we are all God’s greatest art pieces. The book of Psalms of the King James Bible chapter 139, verse 14 declares “I am fearfully and wonderfully made”. We were all made to bring glory to God. Not just one set of people, but all of us. God placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. According to Genesis chapter 2, verse 28 of the King James Bible he told them to “be fruitful and multiply”. Now consider this. If in the beginning God created Adam, then formed Eve from the rib of Adam, how then did prejudice began when we all came from the same man and woman? Adam and Eve had Cain, Abel and Seth namely. It is through this lineage we are all on this earth. And up until today, we are still being fruitful and multiplying.
Do you ever wonder who started looking at whom in a different way? This is an essential question. Where did it originate from? Did one of Shem’s children, started discriminating against Ham’s children. Or was it the other way around? Remember that the King James Bible...
