The World is Yours

SERIES – The Young and the Restless

1 Corinthians 1:10-13 NIV

10   I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.

11   My brothers, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you.

12   What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.”

13   Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul?

1 Corinthians 3:21-23 NIV

21   So then, no more boasting about men! All things are yours,

22   whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future–all are yours,

23   and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God.

The Paul Fan Club were Gentile.

The Apollos Fan Club were elites.

The Peter Fan Club were Jews.

The Jesus Fan Club were bigots.

“Does segregation in public education solely on the basis of race, even though the physical facilities and other tangible factors may be equal, deprive the children of the minority group of equal educational opportunities? We believe it does… Separate educational facilities is inherently unequal.”

Chief Justice Earl Warren

White schools are superior by virtue of their whiteness, while Black schools are inferior by virtue of their blackness.

White supremacy is a fear of competition ultimately.

It has to put a thumb on the scale. It does not have the confidence that it can win straight up.
