Well, that put an end to the "What Is The Unforgivable Sin" thread, doesn't it?

Onliest problem with that is that no one can seem to define "racism" with any degree of consistency. It seems apparent that "racism" is generally a disease that afflicts Other People, and Not Us. Symptoms of racism appear to be limited only by the imaginations of those who are keen to find symptoms of racism, and especially those who stand to make a buck off "fighting racism" or "working to end discrimination". I know I've been accused of racism for not hiring any black people (we've never hired anyone who wasn't family), for posting pictures of shoplifters in the store window (apparently too may of them were black), and because "All you Chinese is racist" (My wife's full Korean and I'm half).

My favorite example of our "racism" was one day when a couple of black women came into the store, followed, purely by happenstance, by a Korean storekeeper friend from down the street. They all sauntered down the main aisle, the Asian lady looking at merchandise, the black women apparently busy looking at the Asian woman. A minute or two later the black women stalked out past me, declaring that they'd never be back again, because "That (Common Blasphemy) Chinese (female dog) followed us all around the store and never even asked us if we needed any help." The loudest of the two assured me that we'd be hearing from her attorney to "sue us for harassment". I told her to have her scheister call ours, and until then to have a nice day.

So yeah, I'm sure all of us "racists" are hell bound. Nothing even Christ's sacrifice on the cross can do to prevent it; we have committed the Unforgiveable Sin, and that without even trying.

Matthew 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
I can use my imagination and think that some of these would have answered... "Yeah but he was black." or perhaps "Yeah but he was a Jew." or ... etc.

God be gracious to me a sinner.

Going off topic a little:

Some people will go, 'women drivers ...'

I actually banged into a parked car. (my neighbour's, and she was like, what are you doing?)

However, I witnessed a cab driver (a man ) backing his cab into a motionless car.

Please define, "Religious". Religious or racists? Two different things here.

IMO, you might be surprised to discover that religion may apply to almost anything in this world, and even outside of the Church. I'm religious to place my faith in any chair that I sit upon, hoping that it doesn't collapse under me when I sit down. I'm a normal weight and size but even I'll be religious in placing faith in my automobile when I drive it, hoping it doesn't break down.

On the other hand, racists won't be allowed in heaven before they are corrected, and only if they are willing. Now, if one places faith in a car, a chair or their hair dresser, will not either if that is their only faith and religion.

Patriotism to any leader or country government is also religious. I think this thread is nonsensical, really. It's just the same and as ridiculous as asking if anyone will enter into heaven if they place their faith in anything. Thanks

Well I don't know about the racist but Jesus called religious folks white washed tombs. Personally I think it will require far more than being religious to get into heaven if I read my Bible right. But then I'm not sure many of us read the same Book.
