  • 10, verse 17: "So then faith comes by hearing and

  • hearing by the Word of God."
  • 00:00:58.030 --> 00:00:59.220

  • your future financial support.
  • 00:01:19.220 --> 00:01:21.120

  • television is to remain on the air.
  • 00:01:23.250 --> 00:01:25.140
  • And I would ask you if you're not already a committed faith
  • 00:01:25.150 --> 00:01:28.070
  • partner that you would consider becoming a partner with us in
  • 00:01:28.080 --> 00:01:30.280
  • faith in support of the ministry.
  • 00:01:30.290 --> 00:01:33.100
  • On the screen is an address where you can mail that offering
  • 00:01:33.110 --> 00:01:35.290
  • or a gift. Thanks very much.
  • 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:37.130
  • Now, I'm teaching on the subject of race, religion, and racism.
  • 00:01:37.140 --> 00:01:42.140
  • Race, religion, and racism.
  • 00:01:47.030 --> 00:01:50.150
  • And I'm still in my introduction.
  • 00:01:50.160 --> 00:01:52.160
  • This is our third session together but I'm in my
  • 00:01:52.170 --> 00:01:55.060
  • introduction.
  • 00:01:55.070 --> 00:01:56.130
  • This is a very volatile issue and it is an issue that God has
  • 00:01:56.140 --> 00:02:01.260
  • given me an assignment to deal with in depth so this is not
  • 00:02:01.270 --> 00:02:06.100
  • gonna be a quickie, a few words here and there and then that's
  • 00:02:06.110 --> 00:02:09.180
  • gonna be the end of it.
  • 00:02:09.190 --> 00:02:10.260
  • It's going to be in depth and so it's something you need to
  • 00:02:10.270 --> 00:02:13.170
  • follow as we go along.
  • 00:02:13.180 --> 00:02:15.110
  • There one--there is one basic ground rule that I make in this
  • 00:02:15.120 --> 00:02:20.080
  • series and that is that if you, after hearing what I have to
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:24.170
  • say, you may not like it.
  • 00:02:24.180 --> 00:02:27.000
  • You may disagree with it.
  • 00:02:27.010 --> 00:02:28.170
  • It may make you upset.
  • 00:02:28.180 --> 00:02:30.260
  • It might cause you to get bent out of shape.
  • 00:02:30.270 --> 00:02:33.070
  • You might actually just get downright mad with me and wanna
  • 00:02:33.080 --> 00:02:35.260
  • write me a letter.
  • 00:02:35.270 --> 00:02:37.030
  • That's fine but I do ask you this.
  • 00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:39.130
  • That if you write me a letter, whether it's a positive letter
  • 00:02:39.140 --> 00:02:41.200
  • or a negative letter, if you do not have your full name on the
  • 00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:45.120
  • letter and your mailing address, then I will not read the letter.
  • 00:02:45.130 --> 00:02:51.180
  • Don't send me any anonymous letter.
  • 00:02:51.190 --> 00:02:53.280
  • I will not read it and I've instructed my staff not to give
  • 00:02:53.290 --> 00:02:57.100
  • me any letter unless it has your name and your address on it.
  • 00:02:57.110 --> 00:03:00.240
  • The reason for that is because I reserve the right to read that
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:03.230
  • letter on television nationwide and I want everybody in your
  • 00:03:03.240 --> 00:03:06.260
  • neighborhood to know just how you feel about the stuff you
  • 00:03:06.270 --> 00:03:09.130
  • carry--* so that's why I need your name and address.
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:13.160
  • See, that's what's been wrong is stuff has been done clandestine
  • 00:03:13.170 --> 00:03:16.130
  • but no more.
  • 00:03:16.140 --> 00:03:17.200
  • It's gonna be out in the open on the front page so if you write
  • 00:03:17.210 --> 00:03:19.290
  • me a letter, just know I'm gonna read it, if I choose to, on
  • 00:03:20.000 --> 00:03:24.000
  • television.
  • 00:03:24.010 --> 00:03:25.050
  • Now, here we go.
  • 00:03:25.060 --> 00:03:26.050
  • We left off with this last time.
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:28.120
  • I wanna get right into it.
  • 00:03:28.130 --> 00:03:29.180
  • 1 Thessalonians chapter 5 and verse 22.
  • 00:03:29.190 --> 00:03:32.270
  • It says, and I'm reading from the New King James Version, it
  • 00:03:32.280 --> 00:03:36.160
  • says: "Abstain from every form of evil."
  • 00:03:36.170 --> 00:03:39.170
  • Now, the traditional King James says: "Abstain from the
  • 00:03:39.180 --> 00:03:43.100
  • appearance of evil."
  • 00:03:43.110 --> 00:03:45.080
  • Even the very appearance of evil.
  • 00:03:45.090 --> 00:03:47.090
  • Notice it doesn't say, "Abstain from evil."
  • 00:03:47.100 --> 00:03:50.180
  • It just says, "Abstain from the appearance of it."
  • 00:03:50.190 --> 00:03:52.290
  • If it looks like it, we ought to avoid it, okay?
  • 00:03:53.000 --> 00:03:56.240
  • Now, go to Romans chapter 12 because I told you last time and
  • 00:03:56.250 --> 00:04:01.250
  • I want to do it today.
  • 00:04:04.010 --> 00:04:05.100
  • Thank God we're going to get into it today.
  • 00:04:05.110 --> 00:04:07.090
  • I want you to hear a tape recorded message from a very
  • 00:04:07.100 --> 00:04:13.240
  • prominent charismatic leader in our world today.
  • 00:04:13.250 --> 00:04:19.150
  • And the tape in my humble opinion smacks of racism.
  • 00:04:19.160 --> 00:04:24.160
  • Maybe it's not.
  • 00:04:28.000 --> 00:04:29.140
  • Maybe it doesn't.
  • 00:04:29.150 --> 00:04:31.040
  • But the Bible says to avoid the appearance of it and, to me, it
  • 00:04:31.050 --> 00:04:34.250
  • looks like and sounds like racism.
  • 00:04:34.260 --> 00:04:38.010
  • It sounds like evil.
  • 00:04:38.020 --> 00:04:39.050
  • And racism is evil.
  • 00:04:39.060 --> 00:04:40.180
  • To me, it's a sin.
  • 00:04:40.190 --> 00:04:42.290
  • Because when you are racist and let me say this, because I'm
  • 00:04:43.000 --> 00:04:46.170
  • going--I have a section called "Racism" that I'll get into.
  • 00:04:46.180 --> 00:04:49.150
  • And I realize that I believe that racism is an economic
  • 00:04:49.160 --> 00:04:54.150
  • thing, it's a power thing, but in the--out on the street, the
  • 00:04:54.160 --> 00:04:58.190
  • average person's idea of racism really is racial, ethnic, and
  • 00:04:58.200 --> 00:05:03.000
  • color prejudice.
  • 00:05:03.010 --> 00:05:04.080
  • But I'm using the term "racism" as a catch-all for this segment
  • 00:05:04.090 --> 00:05:05.150
  • of it but we're really dealing with racial and ethnic and color
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:06.100
  • prejudice, okay?
  • 00:05:06.110 --> 00:05:07.170
  • But I, just to shorten all of that, I just say "racism," okay?
  • 00:05:07.180 --> 00:05:09.150
  • But just so you'll know where I'm coming from.
  • 00:05:09.160 --> 00:05:14.160
  • Now, I believe that racism exists in the church big time,
  • 00:05:25.130 --> 00:05:30.200
  • and I believe that it does because nobody on a really large
  • 00:05:30.210 --> 00:05:36.290
  • scale has tackled it, has confronted it.
  • 00:05:37.000 --> 00:05:43.230
  • There have been things said here, things said there, but
  • 00:05:44.030 --> 00:05:46.200
  • nobody's really made an issue out of it and I think it needs
  • 00:05:46.210 --> 00:05:49.050
  • to be made an issue because that seems to be the only way that
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:52.040
  • people perk up and take note.
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:54.200
  • When you pass something by, they think that's just some little
  • 00:05:54.210 --> 00:05:57.070
  • clique that you did so they pass it on by.
  • 00:05:57.080 --> 00:05:59.190
  • But I'm gonna inundate you with so much of this, I'm gonna hit
  • 00:05:59.200 --> 00:06:02.220
  • you so hard with it, that we're not gonna have any choice at the
  • 00:06:02.230 --> 00:06:05.290
  • end of this; you're gonna have to shape up or ship out.
  • 00:06:06.000 --> 00:06:08.280
  • We're gonna have to either deal with it or you're gonna have to
  • 00:06:08.290 --> 00:06:11.190
  • go to your graves with everything that I've said.
  • 00:06:11.200 --> 00:06:13.260
  • And I don't think you wanna do that because it's gonna be too
  • 00:06:13.270 --> 00:06:15.270
  • heavy for you to bear.
  • 00:06:15.280 --> 00:06:17.030
  • So I believe that it's time for the church and we used this
  • 00:06:17.040 --> 00:06:20.070
  • Scripture before: "Judgment must begin at the house of God."
  • 00:06:20.080 --> 00:06:22.270
  • And if it doesn't, if it begins with us, where's--if it doesn't
  • 00:06:22.280 --> 00:06:25.200
  • begin with us, what's gonna happen to the people out there?
  • 00:06:25.210 --> 00:06:27.230
  • So I believe in honesty.
  • 00:06:27.240 --> 00:06:30.050
  • I'm an honest person.
  • 00:06:30.060 --> 00:06:31.150
  • I am honest because--not because I'm so good or because I'm so
  • 00:06:31.160 --> 00:06:35.020
  • better than anybody else.
  • 00:06:35.030 --> 00:06:36.080
  • I'm honest because I made a choice that I'm gonna be an
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:39.060
  • honest man.
  • 00:06:39.070 --> 00:06:40.080
  • I can lie and I can tell the truth.
  • 00:06:40.090 --> 00:06:42.010
  • I just decided I'm gonna tell the truth, that's all.
  • 00:06:42.020 --> 00:06:44.200
  • Not because I don't know how to lie.
  • 00:06:44.210 --> 00:06:46.000
  • I could tell the biggest lie you ever heard.
  • 00:06:46.010 --> 00:06:47.050
  • "The fish was that big."
  • 00:06:47.060 --> 00:06:48.120
  • A minnow, but "the fish was that--" I know how to lie but I
  • 00:06:48.130 --> 00:06:51.190
  • stopped all that when I got saved.
  • 00:06:51.200 --> 00:06:53.140
  • When I got born again I stopped lying and I started dealing with
  • 00:06:53.150 --> 00:06:56.270
  • the truth.
  • 00:06:56.280 --> 00:06:57.280
  • So I believe in full disclosure.
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:06:59.100
  • Most people don't because they can't handle it.
  • 00:06:59.110 --> 00:07:01.070
  • But I'm a person that's just out front.
  • 00:07:01.080 --> 00:07:02.250
  • What you see is what you get.
  • 00:07:02.260 --> 00:07:04.030
  • And I deal in honesty and I deal in full disclosure and I believe
  • 00:07:04.040 --> 00:07:06.280
  • that this thing, this racism monster, has to be dealt with
  • 00:07:06.290 --> 00:07:12.020
  • and it needs to be fully disclosed.
  • 00:07:12.030 --> 00:07:14.060
  • Like it or lump it, take it or leave it, that's what we're
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:15.180
  • gonna do.
  • 00:07:15.190 --> 00:07:16.240
  • So I wanna show you from the Scripture because everything
  • 00:07:16.250 --> 00:07:19.030
  • that I do I make a valiant attempt to find rationale or
  • 00:07:19.040 --> 00:07:24.040
  • basis for it in the Word of God.
  • 00:07:26.170 --> 00:07:28.150
  • I will not knowingly do something if it's not consistent
  • 00:07:28.160 --> 00:07:33.180
  • with scriptural or biblical or Christian principle.
  • 00:07:33.190 --> 00:07:36.070
  • I won't do it, not knowingly. Understand what I'm saying.
  • 00:07:36.080 --> 00:07:39.000
  • See, notice I'm qualifying.
  • 00:07:39.010 --> 00:07:40.150
  • I'm not--I don't know everything so I might end up doing
  • 00:07:40.160 --> 00:07:42.210
  • something that I don't know about.
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:44.010
  • But I know about this, okay?
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:47.020
  • And so I'm gonna deal with it honestly and straightforward.
  • 00:07:47.030 --> 00:07:51.200
  • So I want you to see what the Scripture says about it because
  • 00:07:51.210 --> 00:07:55.260
  • when I play this tape, it's gonna blow you away.
  • 00:07:55.270 --> 00:08:00.080
  • And you're gonna see how dishonest people can be.
  • 00:08:00.090 --> 00:08:06.270
  • But I'm not one of them.
  • 00:08:06.280 --> 00:08:09.020
  • Romans 12 and 17, it says it this way in the New King James.
  • 00:08:09.030 --> 00:08:13.050
  • It says: "Repay no one evil for evil.
  • 00:08:13.060 --> 00:08:15.170
  • Have regard for good things in the sight of all men."
  • 00:08:15.180 --> 00:08:18.230
  • Now, as good as the New King James is, I don't like that
  • 00:08:18.240 --> 00:08:21.150
  • translation because the original King James carries it out like
  • 00:08:21.160 --> 00:08:25.060
  • it ought to be.
  • 00:08:25.070 --> 00:08:26.130
  • This is what it says in the King James Version: "Recompense no
  • 00:08:26.140 --> 00:08:28.200
  • man evil for evil.
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:30.030
  • Provide things honest in the sight of all men."
  • 00:08:30.040 --> 00:08:34.000
  • See, "provide things honest in the sight of all men."
  • 00:08:34.010 --> 00:08:38.120
  • Now, "all men" would mean all men.
  • 00:08:38.130 --> 00:08:42.170
  • Now, surely, if he says, "Provide things honest in the
  • 00:08:42.180 --> 00:08:45.080
  • sight of all men," surely we ought to provide things honest
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:48.150
  • in the sight of all men of God.
  • 00:08:48.160 --> 00:08:50.160
  • Can you agree with that?
  • 00:08:52.180 --> 00:08:54.170
  • All right, go to Hebrews chapter 13.
  • 00:08:54.180 --> 00:08:56.200
  • Now you mark these Scriptures down and check them out for
  • 00:08:59.170 --> 00:09:03.110
  • yourself before you write me some critical letter about what
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:09.100
  • you disagree with because I'm gonna give you Scripture and
  • 00:09:09.110 --> 00:09:12.290
  • enough of it to wrap the rope of Scripture around your scrawny
  • 00:09:13.000 --> 00:09:16.210
  • neck and choke out all of your unbelief.
  • 00:09:16.220 --> 00:09:19.000
  • And I didn't call any names so don't take it personally unless
  • 00:09:21.060 --> 00:09:24.010
  • you the one I'm talking about.
  • 00:09:24.020 --> 00:09:26.090
  • All right, Hebrews chapter 13, verse 8 says--I'm sorry, 18.
  • 00:09:26.100 --> 00:09:31.100
  • Hebrews chapter 13, but verse 18, not verse 8.
  • 00:09:33.260 --> 00:09:37.080
  • Verse 18, the one after 17.
  • 00:09:37.090 --> 00:09:40.150
  • All right, "Pray for us; for we are confident that we have a
  • 00:09:40.160 --> 00:09:44.150
  • good conscience, in all things desiring to live honorably."
  • 00:09:44.160 --> 00:09:48.290
  • Now, again, that's not really what it's saying.
  • 00:09:49.000 --> 00:09:53.010
  • In the original and in the King James Version it says it better.
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:55.290
  • It says: "Have a good conscience, in all things
  • 00:09:56.000 --> 00:09:58.000
  • willing to live honestly."
  • 00:09:58.010 --> 00:10:00.180
  • And see, to live honestly, to me, means tell me what you're
  • 00:10:00.190 --> 00:10:05.030
  • thinking.
  • 00:10:05.040 --> 00:10:06.280
  • You tell me the truth.
  • 00:10:06.290 --> 00:10:10.000
  • I refuse to deal with liars.
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:13.110
  • I pray from you--pray for you from afar.
  • 00:10:13.120 --> 00:10:16.020
  • I don't wanna have nothing to do with you 'cause I deal in the
  • 00:10:16.030 --> 00:10:19.080
  • truth and you dealing with a lie.
  • 00:10:19.090 --> 00:10:20.190
  • If you don't like me, fine.
  • 00:10:20.200 --> 00:10:21.250
  • You don't want my children around your children, long as
  • 00:10:21.260 --> 00:10:24.010
  • our kids are in arm, little babies, then we don't have a
  • 00:10:24.020 --> 00:10:25.230
  • problem.
  • 00:10:25.240 --> 00:10:26.290
  • When they start getting to be teenagers, when they start
  • 00:10:27.000 --> 00:10:28.090
  • getting eyes for each other and wanna date and all that, then
  • 00:10:28.100 --> 00:10:30.240
  • you wanna start playing funny.
  • 00:10:30.250 --> 00:10:32.190
  • Well, be honest about it.
  • 00:10:32.200 --> 00:10:33.270
  • Tell me from day one that you don't like black folk and you
  • 00:10:33.280 --> 00:10:36.080
  • don't want any--the possibility of some black folk in
  • 00:10:36.090 --> 00:10:38.170
  • your family.
  • 00:10:38.180 --> 00:10:39.190
  • Tell me that now. Okay, all right, let's go on.
  • 00:10:39.200 --> 00:10:45.200
  • "Willing to live honestly."
  • 00:10:45.210 --> 00:10:49.030
  • 2 Corinthians chapter 8.
  • 00:10:49.040 --> 00:10:50.200
  • See, all this is in the Bible, this business of honesty.
  • 00:10:50.210 --> 00:10:54.030
  • We have too many dishonest Christian leaders.
  • 00:10:54.040 --> 00:10:56.190
  • 2 Corinthians chapter 8 and verse 21.
  • 00:11:01.080 --> 00:11:07.110
  • 2 Corinthians 8 and 21 says: "Providing honorable things, not
  • 00:11:08.100 --> 00:11:12.100
  • only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men."
  • 00:11:12.110 --> 00:11:15.210
  • Again, the King James says it better.
  • 00:11:15.220 --> 00:11:18.110
  • It says: "Providing for honest things, not only in the sight of
  • 00:11:18.120 --> 00:11:22.050
  • the Lord, but also in the sight of men."
  • 00:11:22.060 --> 00:11:26.040
  • And when it says, "sight of men," that would have to mean
  • 00:11:26.050 --> 00:11:28.100
  • black men, white men, red men, brown men, and yellow men,
  • 00:11:28.110 --> 00:11:31.030
  • all men. Men, okay?
  • 00:11:31.040 --> 00:11:34.160
  • In the sight of men.
  • 00:11:34.170 --> 00:11:35.280
  • In their sight, so that means you ought to be honest
  • 00:11:35.290 --> 00:11:38.110
  • in view of everyone. That's what it says to me.
  • 00:11:38.120 --> 00:11:42.150
  • Now, while you're there, 2 Corinthians,
  • 00:11:42.160 --> 00:11:44.010
  • look at the 13th chapter.
  • 00:11:44.020 --> 00:11:47.010
  • 13th chapter and verse 7.
  • 00:11:47.020 --> 00:11:50.120
  • It says: "Now I pray to God that you do no evil; not that we
  • 00:11:53.280 --> 00:11:57.120
  • should appear approved, but that you should do what is honorable,
  • 00:11:57.130 --> 00:12:01.000
  • though we may seem disqualified."
  • 00:12:01.010 --> 00:12:04.140
  • Now listen to this in the King James Version which I think says
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:07.120
  • it like it ought to be: "Now I pray to God that you do
  • 00:12:07.130 --> 00:12:09.280
  • not--that you do no evil; not that we should appear approved,
  • 00:12:09.290 --> 00:12:13.160
  • but that you--but that ye should do that which is honest, though
  • 00:12:13.170 --> 00:12:17.150
  • we be as reprobates."
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:20.150
  • Notice honest.
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:22.130
  • Honest means tell the truth.
  • 00:12:22.140 --> 00:12:24.070
  • Honest means tell it like it is.
  • 00:12:24.080 --> 00:12:26.010
  • Honesty means speak from your heart.
  • 00:12:26.020 --> 00:12:29.090
  • Honesty means tell it like you really feel, like it really is.
  • 00:12:29.100 --> 00:12:34.080
  • Don't live that behind closed doors and then present some
  • 00:12:34.090 --> 00:12:38.010
  • other face in public but be honest everywhere at all times
  • 00:12:38.020 --> 00:12:43.270
  • about your real feelings.
  • 00:12:43.280 --> 00:12:45.140
  • Now, in Ephesians 4, go there now.
  • 00:12:45.150 --> 00:12:48.030
  • Ephesians chapter 4.
  • 00:12:48.040 --> 00:12:50.110
  • Not very far from where you are.
  • 00:12:50.120 --> 00:12:53.030
  • Ephesians chapter 4, they say it exactly like it ought to be
  • 00:12:53.040 --> 00:13:01.010
  • here in the New King James.
  • 00:13:01.020 --> 00:13:04.120
  • All right, Ephesians chapter 4, verse 25 says: "Therefore,
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:07.180
  • putting away lying."
  • 00:13:07.190 --> 00:13:13.180
  • Let's see, did that say that?
  • 00:13:16.150 --> 00:13:20.090
  • Let me read that again.
  • 00:13:20.100 --> 00:13:23.110
  • "Therefore, putting away lying," and see, you not only lie
  • 00:13:23.120 --> 00:13:28.120
  • by your words, you lie by your actions.
  • 00:13:28.130 --> 00:13:32.110
  • See, it's not limited to just words.
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:36.210
  • It's the way you act.
  • 00:13:36.220 --> 00:13:39.030
  • You're smiling at me but you don't like me 'cause I'm black.
  • 00:13:39.040 --> 00:13:43.200
  • See, that's lying. He said put it away.
  • 00:13:43.210 --> 00:13:46.100
  • He talking to Christians: "Put it away."
  • 00:13:46.110 --> 00:13:49.130
  • Says, "Put it away." Get rid of it.
  • 00:13:52.020 --> 00:13:56.120
  • If you don't like me tell me you don't like me.
  • 00:13:56.130 --> 00:13:59.220
  • Don't be smiling at me, shaking my hand, and taking my
  • 00:13:59.230 --> 00:14:02.130
  • offerings, and then you don't like me just because of
  • 00:14:02.140 --> 00:14:07.110
  • the color of my skin.
  • 00:14:07.120 --> 00:14:10.020
  • You telling a lie. All right, here it is.
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:13.020
  • Listen to it, listen.
  • 00:14:13.030 --> 00:14:14.190
  • "Therefore, putting away lying, 'Let each one of you speak truth
  • 00:14:14.200 --> 00:14:17.280
  • with his neighbor,' for we are members of one another."
  • 00:14:17.290 --> 00:14:23.260
  • Now that's the--that be the Bible.
  • 00:14:23.270 --> 00:14:28.010
  • Now, as I pointed out before as I--as we listened to that
  • 00:14:28.020 --> 00:14:30.200
  • recorded message from the Klan.
  • 00:14:30.210 --> 00:14:33.130
  • You remember the one I met--read--played on the very
  • 00:14:33.140 --> 00:14:36.090
  • first time?
  • 00:14:36.100 --> 00:14:37.170
  • I've said it before but I wanna say it again.
  • 00:14:37.180 --> 00:14:39.030
  • I obviously do not agree with the position of the Ku Klux Klan
  • 00:14:39.040 --> 00:14:43.030
  • but I have to admire their honesty.
  • 00:14:43.040 --> 00:14:46.210
  • I said it before, but I--it's too bad that the church, the
  • 00:14:46.220 --> 00:14:49.290
  • so-called born again, Spirit-filled, tongue-talking,
  • 00:14:50.000 --> 00:14:52.220
  • Bible-totin', tape-recorded playing, red, orange, and green
  • 00:14:52.230 --> 00:14:56.070
  • and yellow highlight-marking Christian can't be as honest as
  • 00:14:56.080 --> 00:14:59.240
  • the Ku Klux Klan.
  • 00:14:59.250 --> 00:15:01.210
  • Now, let me say this.
  • 00:15:01.220 --> 00:15:03.210
  • It is not my purpose--say, "It's not Dr. Price's purpose."
  • 00:15:03.220 --> 00:15:12.140
  • It is not my purpose to belittle, malign, castigate, or
  • 00:15:13.260 --> 00:15:22.030
  • talk bad about any person.
  • 00:15:22.040 --> 00:15:28.010
  • But because I believe in the truth and the whole truth and
  • 00:15:28.020 --> 00:15:33.070
  • nothing but the truth, so help me, God, then I believe in
  • 00:15:33.080 --> 00:15:38.100
  • letting it all hang out, okay?
  • 00:15:38.110 --> 00:15:42.260
  • Now, I'll tell you some other things about this tape shortly,
  • 00:15:42.270 --> 00:15:48.050
  • but it's--I think it's an important message and it speaks
  • 00:15:48.060 --> 00:15:53.190
  • to this issue that I have been talking about.
  • 00:15:53.200 --> 00:15:57.050
  • This tape-recorded message was done about 4½ to 5 years ago,
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:16:01.240
  • and there were some names that were mentioned in the tape.
  • 00:16:01.250 --> 00:16:06.250
  • And so we have bleeped those names out because, as I say, I'm
  • 00:16:09.100 --> 00:16:13.030
  • not interested per se in you knowing who it is.
  • 00:16:13.040 --> 00:16:16.190
  • I'm interested in the content of what is being said because I
  • 00:16:16.200 --> 00:16:20.050
  • think it speaks to an issue.
  • 00:16:20.060 --> 00:16:22.050
  • I think that it's symptomatic and it gives us a good clear
  • 00:16:22.060 --> 00:16:26.010
  • indication of where problems lie.
  • 00:16:26.020 --> 00:16:28.210
  • I could tell you the name of the person.
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:30.160
  • Now, some people are gonna recognize it because they heard
  • 00:16:30.170 --> 00:16:32.290
  • the tape before but they already know who it is anyway so me
  • 00:16:33.000 --> 00:16:35.100
  • playing it ain't changing nothing, okay?
  • 00:16:35.110 --> 00:16:39.240
  • Roll the tape. I hope you can hear this.
  • 00:16:39.250 --> 00:16:42.290
  • male: I can't tell your kids
  • 00:16:43.240 --> 00:16:45.200
  • who to go with and who not to go date.
  • 00:16:45.210 --> 00:16:50.260
  • Not my responsibility.
  • 00:16:50.270 --> 00:16:54.000
  • If you don't want your kid dating somebody, then you
  • 00:16:54.010 --> 00:16:57.090
  • control it.
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:17:00.030
  • But you control it a long time before they ever get to be
  • 00:17:00.040 --> 00:17:03.280
  • datin' age.
  • 00:17:03.290 --> 00:17:06.200
  • You talk about "we're friends."
  • 00:17:06.210 --> 00:17:09.120
  • We can be friends with everybody.
  • 00:17:09.130 --> 00:17:11.060
  • We are not prejudiced but we are not going to date
  • 00:17:11.070 --> 00:17:14.150
  • this group of people.
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:17.000
  • It's not in our--it's not in our culture to do it.
  • 00:17:17.010 --> 00:17:21.040
  • We're not gonna do it.
  • 00:17:21.050 --> 00:17:23.070
  • If you want to, there's no problem with that, that's fine.
  • 00:17:23.080 --> 00:17:26.080
  • You're not a racist.
  • 00:17:26.090 --> 00:17:30.260
  • You're--and you're not prejudiced.
  • 00:17:30.270 --> 00:17:34.050
  • Just because you set down those kind of rules.
  • 00:17:34.060 --> 00:17:37.090
  • Hello?
  • 00:17:37.100 --> 00:17:42.290
  • If you want--I'm walking deep, that's right [bleep]
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:48.060
  • but if you want--if you want mixed, fine, that's--if you want
  • 00:17:48.070 --> 00:17:53.200
  • it that's fine.
  • 00:17:53.210 --> 00:17:56.010
  • But if you don't want it, then you control it.
  • 00:17:56.020 --> 00:17:59.220
  • And you don't have to be a racist about it.
  • 00:17:59.230 --> 00:18:02.280
  • And I'm not afraid to talk about it because I've got 30% of
  • 00:18:02.290 --> 00:18:06.180
  • a different--black in this congregation.
  • 00:18:06.190 --> 00:18:09.290
  • And I've talked to many of them.
  • 00:18:10.000 --> 00:18:12.060
  • Talked to the men about it, I've talked to [bleep]
  • 00:18:12.070 --> 00:18:14.120
  • about it, talked to [bleep].
  • 00:18:14.130 --> 00:18:15.240
  • I've talked to a lot of these people about it, and they
  • 00:18:15.250 --> 00:18:18.170
  • all understand where I'm coming from.
  • 00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:27.060
  • We got some beautiful mixed marriages in that congregation
  • 00:18:28.060 --> 00:18:30.200
  • but I have talked to them also and they have--they have not
  • 00:18:30.210 --> 00:18:34.110
  • been without their problems. Hello?
  • 00:18:34.120 --> 00:18:43.200
  • Come on, people, let's be--let's get our head out of the sand and
  • 00:18:43.210 --> 00:18:47.260
  • I'll get accused again like I always do that I'm against
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:52.160
  • mixed marriage.
  • 00:18:52.170 --> 00:18:53.210
  • I did not say I was against mixed marriages.
  • 00:18:53.220 --> 00:18:56.060
  • I said it's up to you but if you don't want your kids involved in
  • 00:18:56.070 --> 00:18:58.200
  • it, then you're the one that has to do something about it.
  • 00:18:58.210 --> 00:19:01.220
  • Not the church.
  • 00:19:01.230 --> 00:19:04.250
  • And just because you changed churches, it's not gonna help
  • 00:19:04.260 --> 00:19:07.170
  • the problem.
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:12.030
  • Some people say, "Well, we'll change churches."
  • 00:19:13.000 --> 00:19:14.120
  • No.
  • 00:19:14.130 --> 00:19:16.020
  • "We'll move away.
  • 00:19:16.030 --> 00:19:17.240
  • We'll go somewhere else and start all over."
  • 00:19:17.250 --> 00:19:20.130
  • No, it's not--you're not--you're just gonna take the problem
  • 00:19:20.140 --> 00:19:23.150
  • with you. Hello?
  • 00:19:23.160 --> 00:19:31.190
  • Many years ago.
  • 00:19:33.220 --> 00:19:34.230
  • Apostle Price: Listen carefully.
  • 00:19:34.240 --> 00:19:36.280
  • male: [bleep] Kindergarten.
  • 00:19:36.290 --> 00:19:42.270
  • We came home.
  • 00:19:42.280 --> 00:19:46.010
  • As young little man was there, nice young man.
  • 00:19:46.020 --> 00:19:50.130
  • We just thought that [bleep]
  • 00:19:50.140 --> 00:19:52.190
  • was a nice--we friends, we play.
  • 00:19:52.200 --> 00:19:55.060
  • We go together in groups, but we don't date one another.
  • 00:19:55.070 --> 00:20:02.010
  • I mean, we're starting kindergarten.
  • 00:20:02.020 --> 00:20:05.140
  • Hello? That just was our rules.
  • 00:20:05.150 --> 00:20:08.160
  • Now, once somebody gets up and they get of age, they get to be
  • 00:20:09.130 --> 00:20:12.000
  • 21, 18, then they can choose to do what they want to.
  • 00:20:12.010 --> 00:20:19.260
  • You ain't got no choice.
  • 00:20:19.270 --> 00:20:21.230
  • You can't do nothing about it.
  • 00:20:21.240 --> 00:20:22.290
  • They're on their own.
  • 00:20:23.000 --> 00:20:25.020
  • I'll tell you what.
  • 00:20:25.030 --> 00:20:27.060
  • The Bible says if you train a child up the way you want to go,
  • 00:20:27.070 --> 00:20:29.240
  • when it gets old it won't depart.
  • 00:20:29.250 --> 00:20:31.190
  • It may wobble around a while but it'll come back.
  • 00:20:31.200 --> 00:20:35.230
  • Hello? You say, "Well, my soul, Pastor,
  • 00:20:35.240 --> 00:20:40.170
  • you talkin' heavy."
  • 00:20:40.180 --> 00:20:42.040
  • I am but I'm gotten close to air condition 'cause I'm sweating
  • 00:20:42.050 --> 00:20:44.110
  • like everything.
  • 00:20:44.120 --> 00:20:50.070
  • But I tell you something.
  • 00:20:51.030 --> 00:20:55.040
  • I just decided that if I'm gonna teach on it, I'm gonna turn over
  • 00:20:55.050 --> 00:20:59.030
  • every stone there is.
  • 00:20:59.040 --> 00:21:05.070
  • Like it or lump it, amen or oh me.
  • 00:21:05.080 --> 00:21:11.090
  • I'm gonna tell you what.
  • 00:21:13.160 --> 00:21:16.170
  • I'm white and I'm saying this so a lot of people--
  • 00:21:16.180 --> 00:21:19.060
  • male: Yeah, he's white.
  • 00:21:19.070 --> 00:21:20.060
  • male: Hey,
  • 00:21:20.070 --> 00:21:21.230
  • I get a lot of--we have had a lot of the black parents
  • 00:21:21.240 --> 00:21:26.150
  • that have come to us and they say, "We don't like this.
  • 00:21:26.160 --> 00:21:30.240
  • We don't want this.
  • 00:21:30.250 --> 00:21:32.160
  • How do we stop it?" Hello?
  • 00:21:32.170 --> 00:21:37.290
  • The same way we do. Hello?
  • 00:21:38.000 --> 00:21:43.030
  • And we enjoy fellowship with one another that we can go together
  • 00:21:43.040 --> 00:21:47.030
  • as groups, we can live and work together.
  • 00:21:47.040 --> 00:21:51.010
  • We just don't go with one another and we just don't mix
  • 00:21:51.020 --> 00:21:53.290
  • our races. And you say...
  • 00:21:54.000 --> 00:22:00.120
  • I hear some of you. That's fine.
  • 00:22:00.130 --> 00:22:02.290
  • I wanna tell you what, people, there's only--what did you say?
  • 00:22:03.000 --> 00:22:11.100
  • How many percent?
  • 00:22:11.110 --> 00:22:13.060
  • There's only 13% of the population
  • 00:22:13.070 --> 00:22:17.280
  • that is of your color.
  • 00:22:17.290 --> 00:22:20.020
  • If we continue to mix it, you ain't gonna be none of you left.
  • 00:22:20.030 --> 00:22:26.160
  • There ain't nobody gonna be able to say, "Black is beautiful."
  • 00:22:28.110 --> 00:22:31.120
  • They're gonna have to say, "Mixed is beautiful."
  • 00:22:31.130 --> 00:22:35.050
  • I don't mean that wrong.
  • 00:22:35.060 --> 00:22:39.160
  • I don't think that we ought to mix any of the races.
  • 00:22:39.170 --> 00:22:44.060
  • That's my personal opinion, okay?
  • 00:22:44.070 --> 00:22:48.060
  • I'm not--I didn't tell you not to do it and I'm not gonna throw
  • 00:22:48.070 --> 00:22:51.130
  • you out if you have.
  • 00:22:51.140 --> 00:22:54.030
  • But I'm talking about an issue that we have a problem with,
  • 00:22:54.040 --> 00:22:58.190
  • not just in [bleep]
  • 00:22:58.200 --> 00:23:01.230
  • church or some of you that don't even know about it 'cause,
  • 00:23:01.240 --> 00:23:04.100
  • my Lord. My wife said, "Quit."
  • 00:23:04.110 --> 00:23:10.110
  • It is a problem that is being had all over the United States,
  • 00:23:10.120 --> 00:23:14.180
  • not just here.
  • 00:23:14.190 --> 00:23:18.170
  • But if we will establish relationship, we can have
  • 00:23:18.180 --> 00:23:31.150
  • tremendous results and we can live and work together in unity
  • 00:23:31.160 --> 00:23:34.040
  • and harmony and we can be what God wants us to be.
  • 00:23:34.050 --> 00:23:39.020
  • And we can live right, talk right, do what God wants but,
  • 00:23:39.030 --> 00:23:45.240
  • parents, don't provoke your children.
  • 00:23:45.250 --> 00:23:48.170
  • Children, don't provoke your parents.
  • 00:23:48.180 --> 00:23:51.150
  • Obey them if you wanna live long.
  • 00:23:51.160 --> 00:23:53.150
  • And I've gone too long.
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:54.280
  • I'm sorry. Bow your heads please.
  • 00:23:54.290 --> 00:23:58.000
  • Apostle Price: Now, I told you--we read it.
  • 00:23:58.010 --> 00:24:02.250
  • The Bible says: "Avoid the appearance of evil."
  • 00:24:02.260 --> 00:24:06.050
  • Now, it--that tape appears to me to be racist.
  • 00:24:06.060 --> 00:24:15.050
  • Now, again, I'm not trying to find fault with the individual;
  • 00:24:20.170 --> 00:24:24.010
  • I'm trying to deal with an issue and an issue that I believe is
  • 00:24:24.020 --> 00:24:28.120
  • very important.
  • 00:24:28.130 --> 00:24:29.200
  • I wanted you to hear it because you get the inflections, you get
  • 00:24:29.210 --> 00:24:32.250
  • the stressing of this, that, and the other and it wasn't like an
  • 00:24:32.260 --> 00:24:35.040
  • off-the-cuff one word.
  • 00:24:35.050 --> 00:24:37.120
  • That's eight minutes' worth. That's eight minutes.
  • 00:24:37.130 --> 00:24:40.160
  • You don't just say that off the cuff, eight minutes.
  • 00:24:40.170 --> 00:24:44.240
  • There's a biblical principle that says: "Out of the abundance
  • 00:24:44.250 --> 00:24:47.290
  • of the heart the mouth speaks."
  • 00:24:48.000 --> 00:24:50.000
  • Now, I wanna play that again and I wanna comment as I go along
  • 00:24:52.030 --> 00:24:57.000
  • because, again, I think it's so important.
  • 00:24:57.010 --> 00:24:59.200
  • You see, if we don't find out why a condition exists, then we
  • 00:24:59.210 --> 00:25:05.030
  • cannot properly treat it.
  • 00:25:05.040 --> 00:25:08.130
  • When you go to the doctor, you're having a pain, pain in
  • 00:25:08.140 --> 00:25:11.030
  • your chest, botherin', you can't sleep.
  • 00:25:11.040 --> 00:25:13.270
  • And your mind is beginning to play tricks on you,
  • 00:25:13.280 --> 00:25:16.110
  • getting--becoming very concerned about it.
  • 00:25:16.120 --> 00:25:18.080
  • So you go and make an appointment to go to the doctor.
  • 00:25:18.090 --> 00:25:20.170
  • And you go to the doctor and you tell the doctor what's wrong,
  • 00:25:20.180 --> 00:25:25.110
  • what you're experiencing.
  • 00:25:25.120 --> 00:25:26.280
  • Well, the doctor is medically trained to know that there might
  • 00:25:26.290 --> 00:25:31.170
  • be nine different things causing the pain in the chest.
  • 00:25:31.180 --> 00:25:35.230
  • It might not be the heart.
  • 00:25:35.240 --> 00:25:37.250
  • Might not be anything wrong with your heart.
  • 00:25:37.260 --> 00:25:39.080
  • It might be something else.
  • 00:25:39.090 --> 00:25:40.180
  • But the doctor can't afford to give you a heart transplant just
  • 00:25:40.190 --> 00:25:43.250
  • because you complaining about a pain in your chest.
  • 00:25:43.260 --> 00:25:46.140
  • The doctor has to do a workup.
  • 00:25:46.150 --> 00:25:49.090
  • He's got to get your medical history.
  • 00:25:49.100 --> 00:25:51.130
  • He's gotta ask you a lot of questions.
  • 00:25:51.140 --> 00:25:53.070
  • He's gotta ask you questions not only about yourself presently
  • 00:25:53.080 --> 00:25:56.120
  • but last week, last year, last month, your family, what
  • 00:25:56.130 --> 00:26:00.070
  • happened in their lives in term certain things being--operating
  • 00:26:00.080 --> 00:26:03.060
  • in their lives because all of it could impact upon you.
  • 00:26:03.070 --> 00:26:06.190
  • You could have inherited something genetically.
  • 00:26:06.200 --> 00:26:08.160
  • So the doctor, before he can afford to make a diagnosis and
  • 00:26:08.170 --> 00:26:12.090
  • certainly start treatments, he's gotta find out what the problem
  • 00:26:12.100 --> 00:26:15.130
  • is because he might treat for the wrong thing.
  • 00:26:15.140 --> 00:26:18.120
  • And we've gotta do that with this issue.
