Dissolve racism: Live as ‘children of light’

Study of the Bible, and obedience to its teachings by practicing what we are taught, bring freedom. This freedom is not just for oneself but for everyone. It is a freedom from material laws that bind and restrict us until they are exposed as having no authority, and we cease to comply with them. 

In the Bible, the Apostle Paul says, “Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2 ). The Message by Eugene Peterson interprets the passage this way: “Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.”
