RACIST, RACe activIST When people turn away from worshipping God, they turn towards worshipping themselves. Narcissism is the root of Racism, (Race Activism). And overzealous love of self leads towards hatred of others. This form of national, racial, tribalism was the norm throughout the Old Testament period. But Jesus Christ brought an end to this at the Cross and through His Gospel we can be born again into a new tribe, a new nation, a new ethnic group of spiritual people who are known by their faithful obedience to God through Christ, by what they say and do, rather than the color of their skin or outward appearance.
