BLACK LIVES MATTER: Committed to Keeping Americans Hating One Another

Written by Ian Bayne on July 15, 2016

The most undeniably powerful force in American politics is the strong bond that exists among those who believe in the Christian God. Add to that that the free will of God’s Law fitting perfectly with our Constitution and you have a recipe for electoral chaos if you’re attempting to undermine freedom.

For this reason, those who worship the government god spend an enormous amount of time attempting to remove Christianity from the American dialogue.

For to destroy Christianity is to destroy any possibility of ending racial tension. And racial tension keeps us divided and dependent on government.

In exchange for a switch from faith in God to faith in government is taxpayer money. Grants, loans, construction work, whatever it takes. And to increase the flock, and to prevent a new coalition of blacks and whites working together against their common oppressor, government needs to plant evil within Bible-believing voters.

Enter the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Black Lives Matter movement intends to divide black Christians and white Christians by skin color to prevent a powerful political coalition.

And it’s working… but barely.

A reminder of this knocked on the door of my SUV parked on a busy Chicago street the other day, exposing to me for a single moment that still echoes in my head a simple answer to why government seems to want us divided so badly.

“It’s still got 40 minutes left on it,” said a black man in his late 50’s, extending an unused Chicago parking voucher to me through my now unrolled window.

“Wow, thanks,” I said, with more gratitude than I can recall expressing in a very long time.

We both bonded instantly over the realization that we just deprived the massive Chicago government machine of our hard earned money. It didn’t matter that he saved me money, he didn’t see it that way.

“I hate to give these guys in the city any money,” he replied.

Generations of black people condemned to failure by government “support” is merely a test case for controlling everyone. Once this becomes common knowledge, our skin color won’t seem important.

The only chance of resistance comes from our faith, because our Christianity breaks down the barriers and opens doors of communication.

In Army basic training I was in the same room as a black ex-gang member from Los Angeles and a white boy from Georgia who had a picture of him waving a confederate flag. No one cared about skin color. Everyone read the Bible.

In sports, black men kneel by white men in prayer.

The common bond is Christianity, and when taxpayer money runs out we’ll all be relying on it a whole lot more.

I’m reminded of an interview I did as a talk show host. I asked a black pastor, “Why is it that my black friends seem to be better Christians?”

“They had to be,” he answered. “Because as black folks we didn’t have much; faith was all we had.”

And as a nation goes broke we’re reminded that many of us will turn to a renewal in faith. White brothers in Christ will turn to black brothers in Christ and the dialogue will begin.

We will ask each other why we dislike one another when it’s government that’s making us all miserable.

The traditional black family is closer to the traditional white family than a gender-bender, anti-God government sponsored chaos.

But as long as Black Lives Matter is in the way, reminding us why we hate each other because of skin color, we will never know how similar we all really are. And once we do it will probably be too late.
