Can We PLEASE Begin To Look At It This Way?

Bad behavior, unlawful acts, criminal intent, and actions taken to obtain things that do not belong to you, or cause fear, intimidation, suffering, pain, loss, injury, or death SHOULD NOT be over-looked and/or mishandled because of race, ethnic origin, religion or creed. You can complicate this if you want, but that only adds to the problem. RESPECT YOURSELF. Carry yourself in a respectable manner, and show respect towards others.

Galatians 5:19-23 (CompleteJewishBible)
And it is perfectly evident what the old nature does. It expresses itself in sexual immorality, impurity and indecency; involvement with the occult and with drugs; in feuding, fighting, becoming jealous and getting angry; in selfish ambition, factionalism, intrigue and envy; in drunkenness, orgies and things like these. I warn you now as I have warned you before: those who do such things will have no share in the Kingdom of God!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, self control. Nothing in the {Law} Torah stands against such things.

1 Peter 3:13 – 17 CJB
For who will hurt you if you become zealots for what is good? But even if you do suffer for being righteous, you are blessed! Moreover, don’t fear what they fear or be disturbed, but treat the Messiah as holy, as Lord in your hearts; while remaining always ready to give a reasoned answer to anyone who asks you to explain the hope you have in you — yet with humility and fear, keeping your conscience clear, so that when you are spoken against, those who abuse the good behavior flowing from your union with the Messiah may be put to shame. For if God has in fact willed that you should suffer, IT IS BETTER THAT YOU SUFFER FOR DOING WHAT IS GOOD THAN FOR DOING WHAT IS EVIL.
