My question to you is, why are there so many white supremacists here in the USA, who profess to be “good” Christians, who continue to hate Jews and accuse us of conspiracy and part of a Synagogue of Satan? Like my parents before me, I am concerned for my children and grandchildren. Wandering Jew
First, I want to suggest that the real issue isn’t about “white supremacists”. Everyone who hates even a little contributes to the hatred in the world. The real issue and therefore the real question is “Why are there so many human beings that hate?”
But, I can offer you two answers to your question as you ask it.
For all human beings – our human hatred of another does not start in a book, nor a religion or culture, nor a form of government, philosophy, organization, scientific discipline, mathematical equation, or any structure that humans have built and use. Hatred also does not begin inside any bodily characteristic – i.e. from our DNA leading to body differences like skin color. Hatred starts inside the hearts and minds of each of us separate individuals who of our own freewill chooses for himself and herself what to feel and think, including who and what to fear. This has been the case for millennia after millennia of humankind’s existence on the Earth. Both Love and Hate are choices we can make.
Within any of us who chooses hatred with any of it’s various manifesting forms, within ourselves, each of us individual human beings then chooses that identifying marker outside of the heart, using that structure or belief system or etc., etc., to support, justify or rationalize acting on our human hatred.
We can use each human belief system, societal structure or anything that exists in the world as a tool for building humanity and our relationships or a tool for destroying humanity and our relationships. All of these items then get usurped for any person’s purposes and agendas which we can hold within our own hearts and minds.
Study the basic precepts of all the structures and systems that I’ve mentioned in the paragraphs above and you’ll discover true wisdom and opportunity to unite people lie within them all. But, not all people choose (freewill again) to practice the wisdom or take the opportunities to unite when they take hold of the precepts. As I’ve said, we humans can take hold of a particular belief system in order to support and justify our own feelings, beliefs and actions, as well.
The second reason is really the real reason. It is this: If we look as deep as possible within the souls, hearts and minds of every human individual, we would see such suffering and pain, that could cause any manner of insane acting out, in order to find something that would relieve one’s own tremendous suffering which can exist within anyone for millennia after millennia. Were we willing to look at anyone’s suffering and pain (even our own,) it would bring a greater understanding to all of us, and give us good reason to disarm our own weapons aimed at someone else.
Imagine two people on opposite sides of every issue saying this same thing directed at the other, “I hate the suffering and pain which your viewpoint causes and adds to mine and others’ lives.” In effect, this is what is happening.
Healing both sides is a slow process which comes from taking one step at a time, trying over and over working at it, but it is a process that we are involved in through every prayer we pray, every meditations, every act of mercy, every effort at forgiveness and more. It is difficult but with God, all things are possible. Because no law can ever stop our prayers, meditations, mercy, forgiveness, patience, loving kindness, compassion, brotherhood, courage, unity and more happening within our hearts, the process of healing for all of us will never be stopped. God in all His forms that we believe in is committed to this, and will see it through to the completion for all life. Our calling is not to try to be perfect but to practice each of these – mercy, understanding, loving kindness, etc – in the human experiences that we face.
The harvest is ready. Who will become a worker?
“No one speaking judgement and condemnation, separation and attack speaks for God. No one speaking punishment and retribution, speaks for God. The one speaking love, forgiveness, kindness, brotherhood, acceptance, patience, tolerance and mercy – this one speaks for God.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2009-2017, Jodie Senkyrik)

“We can only teach love, and all that love entails, by loving and making our love real, active and involved in our life.
We can only teach forgiveness, and all that forgiveness entails, by forgiving and making our forgiveness real, active and involved in our life.
We can only teach mercy, and all that mercy entails, by giving mercy and making this mercy real, active and involved in our life.
We can only teach…” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2009-2017, Jodie Senkyrik)
