Now and then, I run across a pithy (concise, crisp) and wise post from one of my Facebook friends that I feel that the world needs to hear. Such is the case today. Evangelist Margaret Kiel is the Co-pastor of Full Gospel Holy Temple Church in Marshall, Texas. She has been an Evangelist for over 40 years, laboring in God’s vineyard. She wrote a post that I thought was phenomenal, and its wisdom is evident, direct, and to-the-point.
In the past year or so, particularly since the death of George Floyd and several others, we have had a flurry of activity and attention raised that relates to hatred based on one’s skin color. Recently Royals from the UK were interviewed, and we discovered that racism exists at all levels. (Of course, we knew it all along, but now it’s in the open). I believe that God is uncovering the ugly head of racism and is forcing us to realize it for what it is.
Evangelist Kiel hit the nail on the head concerning the stupidity of racism. Let’s look at what she had to say.
Skin! Skin! Skin! Skin! SKIN!
My Skin Ain’t My Sin.
Skin is something that every race of people on planet earth has. So, what is human Skin?
According to Wikipedia, Skin is simply the body’s outer covering and is the largest body organ known as the integumentary system. The Skin has up to seven layers of ectodermal tissue and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments, and internal organs. The Skin covers the entire body. It serves as a protective shield against heat, light, injury, and infection. The Skin also regulates body temperature.
NOW, what would make any FOOL believe that because of the color of the body’s outer layer, you have something marvelous and so different on the inside from everybody else? Lord, how STUPID can we be? Satan has deceived mankind, so until we here on EARTH are fighting, bickering, arguing, and gossiping over skin color. Folks with college degrees, doctors, lawyers, architects, judges, kings, queens, rulers, and even some of the saints have allowed their minds and spirits to be caught up in something that only GOD has complete control over! God is THE GOD OF COLOR! And the CREATOR OF ALL PEOPLE!
Jeremiah 32:27 (KJV)says Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?
So, how did we ever get to this place of PURE STUPIDITY? “My SKIN Ain’t My SIN.”

And so, with a few words, Evangelist Kiel encapsulated the problem of racism, then showed it for what it is, sheer stupidity. Preach Evangelist Kiel! We can see why you are known as God’s Watchman on the Wall.
