Letter: Brian Burton, Leesburg

Editor: It has come to the forefront of the news that some people believe that they are a superior to others in the human race.

It seems that they feel that, because they are from a certain nationality or color of skin or culture, they are superior to others. It is as if they feel that their make up or birthplace makes them superior to others in the human race who were not so privileged as they.

If that is true, and I doubt it, how are they are to act in accordance to their beliefs? What actions are superior to others? In other words, does degrading and trying to destroy other human beings just because make they are superficially different from them is a superior action? Does destroying others

make one better or superior?

The answer, of course, is no. Matter of fact, such behavior and beliefs actually degrades the individual who believes them. Why you ask? Because you’re created in the image of God and God is love. I John 4:8 says, “He that loveth not knoweth not God, for God is love.”

I John 3:10 says, “in this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God neither he that loveth not his brother.”

These quotes show the real superior race; those from God; and the fallen human race; those who are of the devil. For who your God/god is that is what you become like. If your God/god is the devil, then you’re degraded, fallen and of little worth. If your God is the creator of the universe and father of the human race, then you are exalted and will have his divine nature in you. That divine nature will last for all eternity because you are like Him and see him face to face.

That, my friends, is what a superior race is and acts like.
