    Hey, im from NC. Yes we had the problem of slavery, yes the south has known to be violent, and as a matter of fact I used to be racist. Yet, JESUS has entirely changed my life, I now see all ppl the way God sees, how does He see? LOVE!!! I care about their souls, whether or not they truly know my JESUS, if they have a relationship with Him. JESUS is so life changing so amazing so awesome so Holy (there is no one like Him). Will ppl understand, maybe not, yet. In time, at the end of days, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that He is God. 😉 Praise Him
