Everywhere we look, we see ethnic division and racial hatred accompanied by gruesome acts of violence and war. And it is intensifying! It seems as if we are reminded daily that man’s never-ending attempt to solve the problems of this world—apart from God and His immutable laws—has utterly failed! The “solutions” men propose only incite more violence—and more hatred. Soon, these underlying tensions, passions and hatreds will boil over into full-scale race wars! God has warned about all of this well in advance of it actually happening, which is why we follow these disturbing trends so closely.
The March edition of the Trumpet magazine, for example, featured an article on the race bomb recently ignited by Attorney General Eric Holder over the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. At least 300 Mexicans and one federal agent have been killed with Fast and Furious weapons. But according to Mr. Holder, those searching for facts about the ill-intentioned operation and the disgraceful cover-up that followed are motivated more by racism than they are by getting to the bottom of the scandal. This isn’t the first time the Obama administration has used the race card to shield itself against criticism—and it probably won’t be the last.
