The excerpts below are from the chapter entitled "The Spirit of Racism":
The Spirit of Racism
“We are praying against the pandemic of division and hate. Because that’s what racism is. It’s just a division…a divisive strategy of the enemy to divide and conquer. Jesus said a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. As believers, we have to make sure that we don’t divide ourselves, so that light will prevail, that justice really will happen in our lifetime.”
Pastor Erica R. Moore, Spirit of Faith Christian Center,
The spirit of racism is a vile, murderous spirit. I have tried to personify it as best I could in the artwork for this cover. I believe it is one of the ranking principalities over America. There is an atmosphere, a “high place” over America where this evil spirit has been allowed to remain comfortable.
This spirit has a secure place in the atmosphere over America, or as T.D. Jakes said in the “fabric of America” because it has been given a comfortable place in the minds and hearts of Americans. Instead of adhering to the admonition in 1 Cor 10:5 to demolish ungodly arguments and cast down wicked imaginations, Americans, since the time of the Founding Fathers, have embraced them.
The Bible says that we should “give no place to the devil.” For too long in America, and particularly in the Church, we have excluded racism and division as major sins…
...The Church, the body of Christ in America, has the authority and the revelation needed to bind the strongman of racism in America’s spiritual house. It also has the responsibility and the ability to help ensure that America’s spiritual house is not left “empty” but filled with the Word of God, the Spirit of God, and the revelation of the love of God.
On the cover of the book is an evil hand depicting the spirit of racism. In my spirit, I see a hand reaching down to pull up the roots of racism in America. It is the hand of God. God’s hand moves in response to cries for help. God’s hand moves as Christians pray in faith. How can God respond if even the church won’t cry out? How can God answer prayers of faith that have not been prayed or that have been prayed and abandoned?
