I wrote this speech after an incident that happened at school in the 2020-2021 school year, where racist emails were sent across the District. In honor and remembrance of the late George Floyd, I would like to wrap up today’s protest with an excerpt from my speech. I pray that you will meditate on this today, and that it was resonate with your heart and soul. Furthermore, I pray that the American people will reflect and pray upon this excerpt as we examine our conscience and allow the Holy Spirit to convict us, and help us consider what we can do as a people to repair and restore our broken system, as well as our crippled relationship as a family of God.
Excerpt: Satan Embodies and Infiltrates The Spirit Of Hatred and Bigotry
The sky is filled with the showers of blood, and the thick cloud of animosity. I say this to you, now! There is no human being, neither Jew, Gentile, Christian, or Muslim, that is better than another man. There is no ‘child of Satan’ except those who meditate on his lies, and support his core, dark values and filthy practices. There is no ‘synagogue of Satan’ except those who work to build his synagogue through the spirit of bitterness. Satan lies in the heart of a man who believes that he is superior to the laws of God, and the core value of human dignity. Satan IS division. Satan IS white supremacy. Satan IS systemic racism. Satan IS the beginning of the end of human righteousness.
Question For The Conscience
Through my language, my thoughts, my beliefs, or my behavior, how have I embodified the attitude of hatred and animosity towards my fellow countrymen: Whether through rash stigma, through heninous acts of judgement, or through the working of my hands which sow a suspicion of any creed?
15, Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life remaining in him.
16, By this we know love, because he laid down his life for us. We ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. (1 John 3:15-16, WEB)
