Church killings reignite debate on South Carolina flying Confederate battle flag

by  |  published on June 21, 2015

imagesThe purportedly racially-motivated killings at a South Carolina church have re-ignited the political controversy over the Confederate battle flag still flying above the state house grounds.

Flag supporters say it is a symbol of Confederate and southern heritage while critics argued it is a relic of white supremacy.

In 2000, civil right activists got the flag removed from inside the South Carolina state house and from atop the capitol dome. However, the flag still flies on the capital grounds in Columbia, S.C.

    And…….throwing the U.S. Flag on the ground and stomping on it, or burning it, are considered forms of free speech, as well as the “in your face” display of the Mexican flag, on flag poles, in the southwest. Something’s completely wrong with this scenario. The “Stars and Bars” are an integral part of our history, and our struggle to bring all Americans, together, regardless of skin color. That flag represents a step in that process, and should be kept and flown, daily, to remind us of how far we’ve come, despite what the race baiters who are attempting to start a race war preach.

    And as usual we focus on something other than what is causing the biggest problem the confederate flag,it is the heart of man which is the problem,with a church on every street corner and a constant shower of the Christian religion,you would think if religion was the answer we would see some better results,but religion can not change the Human heart so what is the answer,we have to attain a new heart,and must be born from above and learn to walk on the straight and narrow path of faith and obedience to Yahweh,you can talk about loving God all you want,but love is the fruit of Torah(Yah’s laws)if you refuse to walk the path that Messiah walks,then the love of Yahweh is not available to you,proof of your love for God(Yahweh)is found in your love for his never changing laws and keeping them,John 14:15 if you love me,keep my Commandments,Yeshua’s Commandments are the same as the fathers because they are one,Matthew 19:17 Yeshua states that if you are to enter in to life,keep the Commandments,Revelations 22:14 Blessed are they that do his Commandments,that they may have right to the tree of life,and that they may enter in through the gates of the City,no obedience no eternal life.—–Jim Hunt
