It sounds as if you do your part in making the world a better place! While God is always the ultimate authority, we have also been given an incredible mind that has the ability to rationalize things which are right and wrong. You know if you're of upstanding character or not. We all fall short at times, however, there is a sweet success in simply striving.
So, you know that you aren't at a loss for what needs to be done. If you have a serious conviction about moving people upward and forward I suggest praying for your answer as to how you need to go about that. If you are of a pure heart with pure intentions you will definitely get an answer. It's divine principle.
I specifically spoke about women in my posts because women sharing in the discussion conveyed their issues with black men and white women dating/being together. Of course this goes both ways. I was addressing women that posted to this topic though.
About men though --men are half the piece of the puzzle. I will jump in the water and tread lightly.......
Men are birthed with an incredible spirit to lead. The masculine principle is one of strength, leadership, protection and provision. I admire and respect this very much. Through the centuries though, by circumstance and by choice, men have abused this very natural (and beautiful), spriitual gift. It in turn, has created a massive void in the lives of the women and children touched by such irresponsiblity. This has become a bastard generation in many ways. Yes, women have and do pick up the pieces, but the vicious cycle that this has started will only rightfully end when men take ownership of their seed (not just physically but in all respects). It is a powerful, powerful concept. I am by no means pointing the finger either. I have a man to respect that also respects me --I love men and specifically my man. We have made the CHOICE for ourselves, as well as our offspring, to not be a part of this cycle. However, it takes humility on both the part of the male and female. Both male and female energies must work together and resepct our God-given abilities and principles. Men, due largely in part to current culture, don't need to commit to have children and be taken care of. The average women nowadays is too willing to open her legs and play house. If we are really concerned about "communities" --well, healthy communities begin with healthy families. Some don't want to drink of this water, but it's truth. The one thing that has drastically changed in the last 30-50 years is the structure of the family --and we are dying for it, spiritually and phsyically. Men, do your part. Women, do your part. I believe there is a voice of reason within every mentally sane person that understands this fundamental principle. There is a heavy price to pay for such carelessness and our society reflects this sad, sad truth.
Abm, all humans need love, peace, joy, health and protection. A humanist is one whose doctrine (way of life) is centered on these values and interests.
