BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE-WHAT’S GOIN’ ON?

15 Nov

By Terry Loving

“Mother, mother

There’s too many of you crying.”

“Brother, brother, brother, there’s far too many of you dying.

“You know we’ve got to find a way to bring some lovin’ here today, yeah!”

“Father, father we don’t need to escalate

You see, war is not the answer, for only love can conquer hate

You know we’ve got to find a way to bring some lovin’ here today.” 1

……………………………

Can we? Can we “find a way to bring some lovin” within the Black community? Can we really put aside our differences, and embrace a common goal, lifting one another up? Can the light-skinned make peace with the dark-skinned – and the male with the female? Can we set aside our selfish desires to pay more attention to our children? Can we lay down our weapons and talk, just listen to one another – really listen?

………………………………

Can we stop blaming slavery, the White man, the economy and anything else we choose to use as an excuse to hate and kill one another? Can we stop killing our young men over a glance? Over “territory” we don’t really own? Can we teach our boys to be men?  Can we stop fathering kids we don’t intend to love? Can we stop using our women and young girls as tools of the flesh? Disrespecting the elderly?

………………………………

Can we stop domestic violence in our homes? Can we stop raping and abusing our own flesh and blood? Can we rid ourselves of anger and rage – unfounded and misdirected? Can we turn back to our true source of hope – God? Can we find it within ourselves to repent and change our ways?

YES WE CAN!

Change the way you think and act!”

………………………………

…Through the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ. There is no other hope for mankind.

“For I have no pleasure in: the death of anyone who dies,” declares the Lord GOD. “Therefore, repent and live.” (Ezekiel 18:32 – NASB)

“I don’t want anyone to die,” declares the Almighty LORD. “Change the way you think and act!”” (NIV)

………………………………

“The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.”  (2 Peter 3:9- NASB)”

“For in just a very little while, “He who is coming will come and will not delay.” (Hebrews 10:37)

………………………………

“Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.” (Isaiah 55:6)

SIGN OF THE TIMES – “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. (Matthew 24:12)
