Which racism isn't wrong?

Thursday, April 25, 2019

Daniel: Someone brought up an interesting point, that the rules that "set apart" Israel are racist.i
Darwin: Ha, indeed they are. God has a chosen race, the Jews, and He Himself is a Jew.

How about this for a "racist" remark?

Zechariah 14:21

In that day there shall no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.

Deuteronomy 23:

3 “An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter the assembly of the Lord; even to the tenth generation none of his descendants shall enter the assembly of the Lord forever, 4 because they did not meet you with bread and water on the road when you came out of Egypt, and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you.

Darwin: Google definition "racist" - "a person who shows . . . discrimination . . . against people of other races."

Wrong? God can do no wrong. He's the One who says what is wrong and what is right. "There is ONE Lawgiver." (James 4:12)

  1. Daniel: God commanded the Israelites to not eat certain things in order so that they would be set apart from the other nations.
    T1r3sias: So he's a small minded petty racist?
    Daniel: heh, I guess that is racism, huh.
    T1r3sias: Yes, separating people by race is racist.
    Daniel: I hadn't thought about it that way, but yeah apparently not all racism is wrong.
    Karma: lol, Which racism isn't wrong?
    Daniel: The racism that puts different rules on Israel vs not-Israel.
