Because He first loved me. It sounds like an scripture. But for me it has meant everything.

I was becoming concious of the world around me and like always there is the threat of fanaticism and/or feeling like your whole world is collapsing.

Well my world was collapsing.

This seemed to be all there was to this world. Black people being destroyed while the world laughed and played footsie eating African banana's and drinking Hot Cocoa and riding on their firestone tires.

I was torn up inside. Then God began to talk to me. I finally understood for the first time that this world is far worse than I thought, yet there is an God in heaven, who will revenge my people.

A people whom as I began to read the bible, God also calls "My People".

A God who says: Plead the cause of the poor and needy.
A God who says: You sell the poor for a little comfort.
A God who says: The love of money is the root of all evil.
A God who says: Give your dinners for the poor, widow and foreigner.
A God who says: Sell all that you have and give it to the poor.
A God who says: A rich man thinks he is wise, but the poor see right through him.

A God who says: They say I am the Christ and use that to decieve many.
A God who says: I am with the poor and lowly.
A God who says: It is better to be with the poor, than share wealth with the oppressor.
A God who says: The prostitute will be in heaven before the priests.

A God who came to save me from this horror show that we call: The world system.

A God who promises to punish the rulers of this world.

A God who says: Don't harm the poor.
A God who says: I came to preach to the poor.
A God who says: Give the slaves much goods because they have given you much service.

Finally, I was at home. I finally got some peace. I finally got some joy. I finally saw where my love of "My People" came from. God gave me an love for Black People.

Jesus just loved me and He wrapped His arms around me and comforted me. Every word of the bible comforted me.
