After reading that headline, every holy roller reading this thinks I’m a heretic…worthy of being burned at the stake.
So, before you start with the hate mail, hear me out.
Racism has a profound effect on economies. And I’ll prove it with a quick look at history.
In 325 A.D., after Constantine allegedly became a “Christian,” He invited 318 bishops to a special counsel. Not one Jew was invited.
He said, the Jews crucified Christ and they must be run out. Ironically, the original Christians were Jews.
In the early 15th century, Martin Luther (who sparked the Protestant Reformation) had a special kind of hatred for the Jews. He referred to them as an “accursed and miserable people” viewing them as devils.
He also called for them to be killed and run out.
His hatred helped lay the theoretical groundwork for later waves of European anti-Semitism — even influencing Hitler and the Nazis.
When you study out the economic effects on the economies of the 4th century in Constantinople, the 1500s in Central Europe, and Germany in the 1930s you find remarkable similarities.
Their governments were remarkably corrupt and their economies were in dire straits.
Sadly, similar conditions exist in today’s world.
What’s even more sad is that governments think they can solve the problem with more legislation. (Is this sounding familiar?)
Nothing could be further from the truth.
In order to fix the problem, the answer must come from the Church and it needs to come quickly.
If not, we’ll see the racism cards being played in the US descend into chaos.
And that’s when the markets shake, rattle and roll over.

They’ll thank YOU later.
