Decades of sinful humanity and poor choices, resulting in a topic that shouldn’t even exist. How does God view racism? We know that He adamantly speaks against it, and that He views each and every human life as valuable and precious. More importantly, how does God deal with racism, and what does he ask of us in response to it?
