Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. The LORD looked and was displeased that there was no justice. (Isaiah 59:15 (NIV)
By Bobby R. Henry, Sr.
As a country we’ve been called the ‘the melting pot of the world’, because of our diverse cultures and how wonderfully blessed we are due to the exposure of all of our differences – and for that we live in our diverse but separated communities, suburbs and the hood, the haves and the have-nots.
Some call us mutts, a stronger breed due to the mixing of our bloods thereby enabling us to endure hardships better; a breed more suitable for hard work without pay for over 400 years.
With the subtle nuances and the pleasing ventilating herbs and spices that arouse the taste buds, from a connoisseur’s standpoint you can call us Heinz 57; we go on smooth and velvety to mask the flavor of stench that fills our nostrils with the lies perpetrated against the lesser ones.
My question then is, “Does color matter when the truth is the issue?”
Our country is at a pivotal point in its young history. Yet we find ourselves unequally yoked by the truth told from a political point of view.
This same truth that supposes, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — US Declaration of Independence, 1776.
“They make ready their tongue like a bow, to shoot lies; it is not by truth that they triumph in the land. They go from one sin to another; they do not acknowledge me,” declares the LORD. Jeremiah 9:3
Unfortunately that truth was written by all white men for a country of immigrants, freed slaves from Africa, and the Native American men and women.
Some 239 years after the Declaration of Independence was drafted, we still find ourselves searching for the color of truth because of the times, the issues and the circumstances, which have caused a need for color to be attached to what real truth looks like.
Man has destroyed the respectability of human life with color.
Color has become the new fashion eye wear that allows the mentality of servility to find its way to the cerebrum cortex down to the medulla oblongata, which is responsible for the control of respiration, circulation, and certain other bodily functions that sustains life.
The color of truth will cause us to become permanently blind to life itself if we allow ourselves to be continually indoctrinated by the ill-fated efforts and desires of the benefactor of lies, death and destructions; satan and his nymphs.
For those with perceived power it has been easy for them to use the color of truth for their advantage. Governments have been built on this deception and now their foundations are crumbling and everything is falling like Humpty Dumpty – an egg-shaped character in a nursery rhyme who fell from a wall and could not be put back together again (late 17th century).
Have we fallen so deep into the color of truth trap that we are broken and can’t be put back together again?
Our schools, neighborhoods and some of our churches have cleared a pathway straight to hell by using a convoluted form of the color of truth pathology.
You know if you have bought into the lies, mistruths and propaganda that is keeping people down, you know, if nobody else knows, but now it’s time for it to stop.
28 Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, And He brought them out of their distresses. 29 He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves [a]of the sea were hushed. 30 Then they were glad because they were quiet, So He guided them to their desired haven. Psalm 107:28-30 (NASB)
I found the answer, I learned to pray, oh with faith to guide me, I’ve found the way. The sun is shining for me each day, I found the answer, and I learned to pray.
