  • Apostle Frederick K.C. Price: Welcome to "Ever
  • 00:00:07.130 --> 00:00:08.220
  • Increasing Faith."
  • 00:00:08.230 --> 00:00:11.010
  • Dr. Betty Price: Grow in godliness.
  • 00:00:11.020 --> 00:00:14.150
  • Frederick: We walk by faith, not by sight.
  • 00:00:14.160 --> 00:00:17.270
  • With the power of faith
  • 00:00:17.280 --> 00:00:21.000
  • you can do the impossible.
  • 00:00:21.010 --> 00:00:24.240
  • With the power of faith
  • 00:00:24.250 --> 00:00:28.140
  • you can live a victorious life.
  • 00:00:28.150 --> 00:00:31.120
  • Changing one life after another
  • 00:00:31.130 --> 00:00:35.190
  • from burned-out hopes to gleaming joy.
  • 00:00:35.200 --> 00:00:39.020
  • With the power of faith you can change a life.
  • 00:00:39.030 --> 00:00:43.120
  • Let the power of faith transform your life.
  • 00:00:43.130 --> 00:00:48.210
  • Apostle Price: Welcome to "Ever Increasing Faith."
  • 00:00:50.030 --> 00:00:52.170
  • Remember these Words from the book of Romans chapter 10,
  • 00:00:52.180 --> 00:00:55.150
  • verse 17, "So then faith comes by hearing,
  • 00:00:55.160 --> 00:00:58.030
  • and hearing by the Word of God."
  • 00:00:58.040 --> 00:01:00.020
  • Praise God for another day and for another privilege and
  • 00:01:00.030 --> 00:01:02.230
  • opportunity to share with you the living Word of God.
  • 00:01:02.240 --> 00:01:06.220
  • Let's turn in our Bibles, please,
  • 00:01:06.230 --> 00:01:08.020
  • to 2 Corinthians chapter 6.
  • 00:01:08.030 --> 00:01:12.190
  • 2 Corinthians chapter 6.
  • 00:01:12.200 --> 00:01:16.270
  • Now, while the congregation's looking that up, I wanna give
  • 00:01:16.280 --> 00:01:20.040
  • you that are watching me by television the same opportunity
  • 00:01:20.050 --> 00:01:22.110
  • that was afforded those here in the congregation earlier,
  • 00:01:22.120 --> 00:01:25.050
  • and that is, in your case, the opportunity of sending your
  • 00:01:25.060 --> 00:01:28.010
  • tithes, offerings, and gifts of love for the financial support
  • 00:01:28.020 --> 00:01:31.080
  • of Ever Increasing Faith Television.
  • 00:01:31.090 --> 00:01:33.040
  • [congregation applauding]
  • 00:01:33.050 --> 00:01:40.000
  • Apostle Price: Now, I need your faithful financial support if
  • 00:01:40.010 --> 00:01:45.170
  • Ever Increasing Faith Television is to remain
  • 00:01:45.180 --> 00:01:47.030
  • on the air in your area.
  • 00:01:47.040 --> 00:01:49.120
  • Now, we're not being silly when we clap.
  • 00:01:49.130 --> 00:01:51.120
  • We're following a biblical principle that says God loves a
  • 00:01:51.130 --> 00:01:53.160
  • cheerful giver, which means happy and hilarious,
  • 00:01:53.170 --> 00:01:56.220
  • so I want you to consider if this ministry is valuable via
  • 00:01:56.230 --> 00:02:00.180
  • television, and you think that it ought to remain on the air.
  • 00:02:00.190 --> 00:02:03.220
  • If you're not already a committed faith partner in
  • 00:02:03.230 --> 00:02:07.150
  • ongoing support of the ministry, I would ask you to pray about it
  • 00:02:07.160 --> 00:02:10.080
  • and consider it, and on the screen is an address where you
  • 00:02:10.090 --> 00:02:13.040
  • can mail your tithe, offering, or gift of love.
  • 00:02:13.050 --> 00:02:14.270
  • Right now I want to pray for you and pray with you.
  • 00:02:14.280 --> 00:02:17.140
  • I simply want to add my faith to your faith and set myself in
  • 00:02:17.150 --> 00:02:21.060
  • agreement with you that you're going to receive your
  • 00:02:21.070 --> 00:02:23.290
  • spiritual--or your return on your giving, because you will be
  • 00:02:24.000 --> 00:02:27.130
  • participating in a spiritual law called sowing and reaping.
  • 00:02:27.140 --> 00:02:31.050
  • This ministry is good ground into which to sow,
  • 00:02:31.060 --> 00:02:34.090
  • so you have a right to expect the harvest, so let's pray.
  • 00:02:34.100 --> 00:02:37.270
  • Father, we thank you and we praise you that in this covenant
  • 00:02:37.280 --> 00:02:40.180
  • dispensation of grace, your Word declares that you love a
  • 00:02:40.190 --> 00:02:43.220
  • cheerful, happy, and hilarious giver, and we are indeed happy
  • 00:02:43.230 --> 00:02:47.040
  • and hilarious about our privilege and opportunity to
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:49.250
  • give to you through the ministry of Ever
  • 00:02:49.260 --> 00:02:52.060
  • Increasing Faith Television.
  • 00:02:52.070 --> 00:02:53.230
  • We thank you also that you provided for us a great High
  • 00:02:53.240 --> 00:02:56.070
  • Priest, the Lord Jesus Christ, who ever lives in the holy
  • 00:02:56.080 --> 00:02:59.110
  • sanctuary of heaven to make intercession on our behalf.
  • 00:02:59.120 --> 00:03:02.240
  • And, dear Jesus, we're thanking you now that as our High Priest
  • 00:03:02.250 --> 00:03:06.020
  • you will take the tithes, the offerings, and gifts of love
  • 00:03:06.030 --> 00:03:08.230
  • sent by the people for the support of this ministry before
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:12.100
  • the Father, and you will worship him with them on our behalf.
  • 00:03:12.110 --> 00:03:15.290
  • And for that we thank you.
  • 00:03:16.000 --> 00:03:17.120
  • Now, Father, as pastor of Crenshaw Christian Center Church
  • 00:03:17.130 --> 00:03:19.280
  • here locally and as pastor of Ever Increasing Faith Television
  • 00:03:19.290 --> 00:03:22.180
  • for many thousands who are watching me now,
  • 00:03:22.190 --> 00:03:25.020
  • I set myself in agreement with each and every one of them
  • 00:03:25.030 --> 00:03:28.180
  • that they will receive the corresponding return on their
  • 00:03:28.190 --> 00:03:31.070
  • giving and that all of their individual and family needs,
  • 00:03:31.080 --> 00:03:34.060
  • along with the needs of Ever Increasing Faith Television,
  • 00:03:34.070 --> 00:03:36.190
  • are met according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
  • 00:03:36.200 --> 00:03:42.170
  • For this we thank you and praise you in Jesus's mighty name.
  • 00:03:42.180 --> 00:03:45.070
  • And all who agreed with that prayer said amen.
  • 00:03:45.080 --> 00:03:48.060
  • Thank you so very much for your faithful and continuous support
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:50.200
  • of the ministry of Ever Increasing Faith Television.
  • 00:03:50.210 --> 00:03:52.140
  • You are helping to make it happen.
  • 00:03:52.150 --> 00:03:54.140
  • Please be advised that this ministry was never intended to
  • 00:03:54.150 --> 00:03:58.230
  • be a substitute for belonging to, going to,
  • 00:03:58.240 --> 00:04:02.220
  • and being committed to a local church and pastor,
  • 00:04:02.230 --> 00:04:05.200
  • so by all means seek out that church in your area.
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:08.260
  • But until such time as you find it, then by all means continue
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:12.010
  • to draw from Ever Increasing Faith Television.
  • 00:04:12.020 --> 00:04:14.030
  • Now, we are and have embarked upon a series that is entitled
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:22.010
  • "Race, Religion, and Racism."
  • 00:04:22.020 --> 00:04:26.220
  • You may become angry, you may just get right down right mad
  • 00:04:26.230 --> 00:04:32.200
  • with me, and you may say, "Well, I ain't gonna support that
  • 00:04:32.210 --> 00:04:35.230
  • ministry anymore, and I'm not gonna send any more money into
  • 00:04:35.240 --> 00:04:38.130
  • it," and all kinda things you may say.
  • 00:04:38.140 --> 00:04:40.170
  • Well, that's fine. Here is the ground rules.
  • 00:04:40.180 --> 00:04:42.220
  • If you write me a letter, I will not read the letter unless the
  • 00:04:42.230 --> 00:04:46.230
  • letter has your full name on it and your mailing address
  • 00:04:46.240 --> 00:04:51.150
  • so that I can reserve the right to read your letter in this
  • 00:04:51.160 --> 00:04:55.200
  • public forum so that everybody in your neighborhood and in your
  • 00:04:55.210 --> 00:04:59.230
  • family can know just how you feel about it.
  • 00:04:59.240 --> 00:05:02.190
  • Now, I don't care if it's a positive letter
  • 00:05:02.200 --> 00:05:04.060
  • or a negative letter, I will not read the letter.
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:07.100
  • I'm not talking about not read it on the air.
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:09.010
  • If my secretary or my office or my workers come to me
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:13.010
  • and they have a letter, whether a praise letter or whatever,
  • 00:05:13.020 --> 00:05:17.200
  • or if it's--I'm only gonna read positive letters in private,
  • 00:05:17.210 --> 00:05:22.220
  • but in public I'll read both positive and negative if I
  • 00:05:22.230 --> 00:05:26.010
  • choose, but I won't read it unless there is a full name and
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:32.090
  • your mailing address, okay?
  • 00:05:32.100 --> 00:05:35.200
  • And if you decide that you don't wanna be on our mailing list
  • 00:05:35.210 --> 00:05:40.150
  • anymore, don't send me some big, long letter disagreeing
  • 00:05:40.160 --> 00:05:43.020
  • with what I'm teaching, just simply a little note,
  • 00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:45.090
  • even a postcard would do.
  • 00:05:45.100 --> 00:05:46.190
  • Just say, "Take me off your mailing list."
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:48.090
  • We'll probably figure out what the problem is
  • 00:05:48.100 --> 00:05:50.290
  • and we'll be glad to take your name off, okay?
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:53.100
  • So, those are the ground rules.
  • 00:05:53.110 --> 00:05:54.210
  • Now, last week I covered a particular area about this
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:06:04.170
  • racism, race, and religion.
  • 00:06:04.180 --> 00:06:07.110
  • I'm still in my introductory aspect of the ministry of
  • 00:06:07.120 --> 00:06:11.040
  • this series, I should say.
  • 00:06:11.050 --> 00:06:12.140
  • Now, I made a statement last time and, in the course of the
  • 00:06:12.150 --> 00:06:17.150
  • week, someone mentioned to me something that they had been
  • 00:06:17.160 --> 00:06:25.050
  • told that somebody said about a certain aspect of the ministry.
  • 00:06:25.060 --> 00:06:32.120
  • It really wasn't anything about the ministry per se
  • 00:06:32.130 --> 00:06:34.260
  • but, by virtue of some things that I said, the person made a
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:39.010
  • statement, and when they made the statement I said,
  • 00:06:39.020 --> 00:06:42.130
  • "My goodness, I thought that I was being very explicit,
  • 00:06:42.140 --> 00:06:47.140
  • I thought I was being very direct and very simple,
  • 00:06:47.150 --> 00:06:50.230
  • and I thought that even an idiot would have been able to
  • 00:06:50.240 --> 00:06:53.210
  • understand what I said."
  • 00:06:53.220 --> 00:06:56.080
  • But I--this thing is so important that I can't afford to
  • 00:06:56.090 --> 00:06:59.270
  • take a chance and make an assumption that everybody is
  • 00:06:59.280 --> 00:07:04.030
  • understanding what I'm saying, so I'm gonna just pick up with
  • 00:07:04.040 --> 00:07:09.080
  • where I left off last time just to be absolutely sure
  • 00:07:09.090 --> 00:07:12.130
  • that everybody understands.
  • 00:07:12.140 --> 00:07:14.070
  • Now, again, this whole thing of racism--and I'm talking about
  • 00:07:14.080 --> 00:07:19.200
  • racism in the church, race, racism, and religion.
  • 00:07:19.210 --> 00:07:22.230
  • I'm talking about racism in the church.
  • 00:07:22.240 --> 00:07:24.150
  • I'm not directing my remarks to society in general.
  • 00:07:24.160 --> 00:07:30.010
  • I'm directing my remarks to the body of Christ.
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:32.090
  • I'm a part of the body of Christ.
  • 00:07:32.100 --> 00:07:33.200
  • I'm a ministry gift to the church.
  • 00:07:33.210 --> 00:07:35.130
  • God our Father is concerned about this mess in the church.
  • 00:07:35.140 --> 00:07:38.240
  • Now, of course, everybody that's in the church also is a part of
  • 00:07:38.250 --> 00:07:42.010
  • society in varying ways, so--but that's my purpose,
  • 00:07:42.020 --> 00:07:45.230
  • is to dump on you so you can dump on society.
  • 00:07:45.240 --> 00:07:51.030
  • It's not my job to leave the church and
  • 00:07:51.040 --> 00:07:53.100
  • become a societal leader.
  • 00:07:53.110 --> 00:07:55.010
  • I'm supposed to be in the body of Christ,
  • 00:07:55.020 --> 00:07:56.160
  • and I'm supposed to minister along these lines.
  • 00:07:56.170 --> 00:07:58.240
  • This whole thing of racism in America,
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:01.060
  • this primary thing, which is black-and-white thing,
  • 00:08:01.070 --> 00:08:03.190
  • it's about blacks, and it's about whites.
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:05.230
  • I'm sorry, I didn't start it; you didn't start it;
  • 00:08:05.240 --> 00:08:08.120
  • none of us that are here started it; but we're
  • 00:08:08.130 --> 00:08:10.120
  • the beneficiaries of it, either positive or negative, and we're
  • 00:08:10.130 --> 00:08:12.250
  • gonna have to do something about it, and the time has come.
  • 00:08:12.260 --> 00:08:15.060
  • Now, I pointed out, based upon some things we heard on audio
  • 00:08:15.070 --> 00:08:19.160
  • cassette tape by other minister--by another minister
  • 00:08:19.170 --> 00:08:22.150
  • about this intermarriage thing, and I thought that I made it
  • 00:08:22.160 --> 00:08:25.090
  • very plain last time that I'm not pushing for intermarriage.
  • 00:08:25.100 --> 00:08:30.010
  • I gave you what I call my acid test, remember that?
  • 00:08:30.020 --> 00:08:33.270
  • I used the term "acid test," and I told you what the term means.
  • 00:08:33.280 --> 00:08:39.230
  • It is a term that is used by jewelers and by those who deal
  • 00:08:39.240 --> 00:08:45.080
  • in precious metals, and the acid test is when they test gold to
  • 00:08:45.090 --> 00:08:50.120
  • find out if it is, in fact, gold.
  • 00:08:50.130 --> 00:08:53.220
  • They take nitric acid, and they have a little
  • 00:08:53.230 --> 00:08:56.240
  • stone that they take; like, for instance, my ring is gold;
  • 00:08:56.250 --> 00:09:00.210
  • and they take this ring, and they'll mark it on that special
  • 00:09:00.220 --> 00:09:04.150
  • stone, and it'll leave a trace of the gold on there.
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:08.240
  • Then they put the nitric acid on it and the nitric acid will
  • 00:09:08.250 --> 00:09:12.130
  • reveal the fact whether it's 24 karat gold,
  • 00:09:12.140 --> 00:09:15.040
  • which is pure gold, 18 karat gold,
  • 00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:17.180
  • which is less than pure, and 14 karat.
  • 00:09:17.190 --> 00:09:20.000
  • And then if it ain't gold at all, it'll bubble up and turn
  • 00:09:20.010 --> 00:09:23.130
  • green, and that's how you know that it's not really gold.
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:28.040
  • That's called the acid test.
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:29.150
  • Now, my acid test--see, say, "Pastor's acid test."
  • 00:09:29.160 --> 00:09:33.270
  • See, I'm not putting this off on anybody else
  • 00:09:33.280 --> 00:09:36.110
  • but, over the years, this is the only thing I have been able to
  • 00:09:36.120 --> 00:09:39.030
  • come up with that I feel comfortable in using
  • 00:09:39.040 --> 00:09:42.170
  • to locate people, okay?
  • 00:09:42.180 --> 00:09:45.130
  • And especially--and please don't be personally offended.
  • 00:09:45.140 --> 00:09:48.250
  • This whole subject area is delicate,
  • 00:09:48.260 --> 00:09:51.040
  • I realize that, but I don't have time to play games with it.
  • 00:09:51.050 --> 00:09:54.020
  • I gotta go direct. I gotta cut to the chase, okay?
  • 00:09:54.030 --> 00:09:57.160
  • I gotta go directly to it, and if you don't know my heart yet
  • 00:09:57.170 --> 00:10:00.260
  • and if you think I'm trying to personally pick on you,
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:03.040
  • then, you know--phew, boy, I almost--Lord Jesus,
  • 00:10:03.050 --> 00:10:06.280
  • I almost said it; but anyway, if you think it's--something
  • 00:10:06.290 --> 00:10:08.220
  • personal against you, well, then that's fine, nothing I can do
  • 00:10:08.230 --> 00:10:10.130
  • about that, but it's not personal.
  • 00:10:10.140 --> 00:10:12.010
  • It's about a principle.
  • 00:10:12.020 --> 00:10:13.150
  • Now, my acid test is can my son marry your daughter?
  • 00:10:13.160 --> 00:10:19.060
  • I'm black; believe it or not, my son is black;
  • 00:10:19.070 --> 00:10:23.210
  • and this is the big bugaboo in America.
  • 00:10:23.220 --> 00:10:25.140
  • It's the whole thing in America.
  • 00:10:25.150 --> 00:10:26.240
  • This white-black thing is all about the inferior black getting
  • 00:10:26.250 --> 00:10:32.060
  • in contact with the superior white; and the intermarriage,
  • 00:10:32.070 --> 00:10:36.070
  • the dating, and all that stuff is a bunch of mirrors and a
  • 00:10:36.080 --> 00:10:39.020
  • smokescreen, but the real issue is sex.
  • 00:10:39.030 --> 00:10:43.020
  • That's the real issue.
  • 00:10:43.030 --> 00:10:45.020
  • "Don't want that black stuff messing with that white meat."
  • 00:10:45.030 --> 00:10:51.130
  • And I said this when very first started.
  • 00:10:51.140 --> 00:10:53.150
  • I'm talking and I wanna talk just like you talk.
  • 00:10:53.160 --> 00:10:57.000
  • See, you got your church talk and then you got your regular
  • 00:10:57.010 --> 00:10:59.200
  • home talk, in-the-automobile talk,
  • 00:10:59.210 --> 00:11:01.230
  • behind-closed-door talk, in-the-bedroom talk.
  • 00:11:01.240 --> 00:11:04.070
  • Well, I'm trying to get in your bedroom and in your car and in
  • 00:11:04.080 --> 00:11:06.200
  • your home, so I wanna be sure you
  • 00:11:06.210 --> 00:11:08.290
  • understand what I'm talking about.
  • 00:11:09.000 --> 00:11:10.090
  • It might sound vulgar to you. That's your problem, okay?
  • 00:11:10.100 --> 00:11:14.180
  • Nothing I can do about that, but that's the big
  • 00:11:14.190 --> 00:11:16.120
  • test, and I've been using this test.
  • 00:11:16.130 --> 00:11:17.220
  • My son is 18 years old, and I've been using this test
  • 00:11:17.230 --> 00:11:19.210
  • long before he came along.
  • 00:11:19.220 --> 00:11:21.090
  • It's always--it wasn't because I had a son.
  • 00:11:21.100 --> 00:11:22.240
  • All my children were married before he came along,
  • 00:11:22.250 --> 00:11:25.010
  • and I think--was Stephanie married?
  • 00:11:25.020 --> 00:11:27.070
  • Eighteen, she been married?
  • 00:11:27.080 --> 00:11:28.170
  • She hasn't been married 18 years, has she?
  • 00:11:28.180 --> 00:11:30.060
  • Oh, okay. Well, anyway, but you all have.
  • 00:11:30.070 --> 00:11:32.050
  • You've been married--you're the only one.
  • 00:11:32.060 --> 00:11:34.040
  • Okay, all right, I got my kids right here, but anyway, I
  • 00:11:34.050 --> 00:11:36.100
  • use that term "my son" because that's always been the thing.
  • 00:11:36.110 --> 00:11:40.270
  • See, this is the lie, it was all started back
  • 00:11:40.280 --> 00:11:43.080
  • in 1611 at the very inception of our nation.
  • 00:11:43.090 --> 00:11:46.010
  • It was--the lie was promulgated so that there would be a
  • 00:11:46.020 --> 00:11:49.110
  • justification for enslaving black Africans, okay?
  • 00:11:49.120 --> 00:11:52.170
  • And so, the whole concept was that every black man,
  • 00:11:52.180 --> 00:11:56.200
  • every black man that has genitals, wants a white woman.
  • 00:11:56.210 --> 00:12:04.030
  • See, that was the lie.
  • 00:12:04.040 --> 00:12:06.180
  • That was the lie, that was the whole thing, and
  • 00:12:06.190 --> 00:12:08.270
  • so--and the way--the reason the lie was hatched in the first
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:12.160
  • place, not just to be able to enslave, but the bigger part of
  • 00:12:12.170 --> 00:12:15.170
  • it was so that the slave owners could have the right to rape the
  • 00:12:15.180 --> 00:12:19.090
  • black women without impunity.
  • 00:12:19.100 --> 00:12:22.280
  • See, they don't want the black man with his genitals to touch
  • 00:12:22.290 --> 00:12:26.080
  • the white, pure woman, but it's all right if the pure white man
  • 00:12:26.090 --> 00:12:29.250
  • rapes the black woman.
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:31.050
  • That's all right if he gets into her genitals.
  • 00:12:31.060 --> 00:12:34.150
  • Now, that's the whole bottom-line issue.
  • 00:12:34.160 --> 00:12:36.090
  • That's why that we don't want no dating, we don't want
  • 00:12:36.100 --> 00:12:37.280
  • no intermarry, that's the whole thing; and that thing's gotta
  • 00:12:37.290 --> 00:12:40.180
  • be squelched, it's gotta be put out.
  • 00:12:40.190 --> 00:12:41.290
  • Now, I use my acid test: can my son marry your daughter?
  • 00:12:42.000 --> 00:12:45.060
  • And then, I read a letter by another
  • 00:12:45.070 --> 00:12:47.280
  • person that said something about it.
  • 00:12:47.290 --> 00:12:49.080
  • I am not interested in intermarriage for me.
  • 00:12:49.090 --> 00:12:57.030
  • I don't care anything about it.
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:12:59.060
  • I am already married. Are you following me?
  • 00:12:59.070 --> 00:13:03.050
  • But that's--because I know that the root problem here is what I
  • 00:13:03.060 --> 00:13:07.120
  • just mentioned, and that intermarriage thing is the
  • 00:13:07.130 --> 00:13:10.000
  • thing that will bring it out.
  • 00:13:10.010 --> 00:13:12.020
  • See, that'll locate it. That's my acid test.
  • 00:13:12.030 --> 00:13:14.290
  • See, I'm watching your reaction, I'm looking into your eye,
  • 00:13:15.000 --> 00:13:18.170
  • and you--I can tell--see, if it's not in your heart,
  • 00:13:18.180 --> 00:13:20.250
  • you'll reveal it through your eyes.
  • 00:13:20.260 --> 00:13:23.220
  • Even if you try to maintain your cool, it'll slip out.
  • 00:13:23.230 --> 00:13:27.040
  • It'll--I can see the fear in your eye, and so that's
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:31.230
  • why I ask the question can my son marry your daughter?
  • 00:13:31.240 --> 00:13:35.220
  • I'm not interested in my son marrying white,
  • 00:13:35.230 --> 00:13:37.170
  • black, brown, red, yellow, or red.
  • 00:13:37.180 --> 00:13:41.090
  • I'm interested in my son marrying whoever he
  • 00:13:41.100 --> 00:13:43.030
  • falls in love with, okay?
  • 00:13:43.040 --> 00:13:45.220
  • I don't--see, 'cause I don't have any hang-up.
  • 00:13:45.230 --> 00:13:48.080
  • I don't care who he marries.
  • 00:13:48.090 --> 00:13:50.080
  • He can marry any ethnic group he wants to marry.
  • 00:13:50.090 --> 00:13:52.040
  • It don't make me no difference one*--'cause I told you last
  • 00:13:52.050 --> 00:13:54.020
  • time everybody's poo poo stinks, okay?
  • 00:13:54.030 --> 00:13:57.110
  • Ain't no superior poo poo.
  • 00:13:57.120 --> 00:14:03.260
  • Yeah, I wanna be graphic, I wanna be plain,
  • 00:14:03.270 --> 00:14:05.200
  • and if you don't like it don't come back.
  • 00:14:05.210 --> 00:14:07.140
  • It's just that simple. Don't fall out about it.
  • 00:14:07.150 --> 00:14:10.020
  • You--nobody put a gun to your head.
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:12.180
  • Now, I mentioned over there about something that somebody
  • 00:14:12.190 --> 00:14:14.110
  • said this past week, which led me to think maybe that some
  • 00:14:14.120 --> 00:14:16.180
  • people still don't understand.
  • 00:14:16.190 --> 00:14:18.190
  • As graphic as I have been and as straightforward and plain,
  • 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:21.120
  • they still don't get the picture.
  • 00:14:21.130 --> 00:14:23.090
  • Somebody said, "Well, I'm not--"
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:29.160
  • This was a person, a non-black.
  • 00:14:29.170 --> 00:14:31.070
  • "I'm not attracted to blacks."
  • 00:14:31.080 --> 00:14:39.230
  • Who cares?
  • 00:14:39.240 --> 00:14:44.100
  • I'm not doing this to make you want to marry a black.
  • 00:14:44.110 --> 00:14:53.240
  • Hear me. That's not the issue.
  • 00:14:53.250 --> 00:14:56.240
  • Guess what?
  • 00:14:56.250 --> 00:14:58.140
  • I'm married, but if I was not married, there is a whole lot of
  • 00:14:58.150 --> 00:15:03.000
  • black females I'm not attracted to, and I'm sure that
  • 00:15:03.010 --> 00:15:06.100
  • there's a whole lot of female that I don't attract.
  • 00:15:06.110 --> 00:15:09.010
  • I'm not attractive to them.
  • 00:15:09.020 --> 00:15:10.110
  • That's not what it's about. It's not about it.
  • 00:15:10.120 --> 00:15:13.290
  • We're not--I'm not telling you that you gotta feel guilty
  • 00:15:14.000 --> 00:15:16.060
  • because you don't feel like you wanna get--marry a
  • 00:15:16.070 --> 00:15:18.170
  • black or go with a black; I'm not talking about that.
  • 00:15:18.180 --> 00:15:22.010
  • My point is why does it make a difference with you?
  • 00:15:22.020 --> 00:15:29.040
  • That's what I'm trying to get to.
  • 00:15:29.050 --> 00:15:30.150
  • You don't have to be attracted to who, whatever.
  • 00:15:30.160 --> 00:15:32.040
  • Be attracted to a dog if you want to.
  • 00:15:32.050 --> 00:15:34.170
  • I don't care, but my point is why--if you're not attracted to
  • 00:15:34.180 --> 00:15:38.120
  • somebody, as long as the reason is because you don't--if you
  • 00:15:38.130 --> 00:15:42.100
  • think they're inferior or not as good as you, then you're
  • 00:15:42.110 --> 00:15:45.250
  • into a racial, ethnic, and color-prejudiced mode.
  • 00:15:45.260 --> 00:15:50.050
  • You might not even be aware of it.
  • 00:15:50.060 --> 00:15:51.160
  • That's my only thing I'm trying to get to.
  • 00:15:51.170 --> 00:15:53.130
  • I'm not trying to encourage anybody to
  • 00:15:53.140 --> 00:15:55.180
  • have eyes for anybody else.
  • 00:15:55.190 --> 00:15:57.180
  • I'm just simply saying if you don't have eyes and your reason
  • 00:15:57.190 --> 00:16:02.000
  • is because, deep down inside, whether directly taught or
  • 00:16:02.010 --> 00:16:06.120
  • subliminally taught, you got this thing about black people
  • 00:16:06.130 --> 00:16:09.110
  • are inferior, then you got a problem,
  • 00:16:09.120 --> 00:16:13.120
  • and that's what I'm addressing.
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:14.230
  • I'm not trying to encourage anybody to intermarry with
  • 00:16:14.240 --> 00:16:19.220
  • anybody other than whoever they wanna marry.
  • 00:16:19.230 --> 00:16:22.000
  • See, that's not my--I'm not--
  • 00:16:22.010 --> 00:16:23.100
  • that's not even my game plan.
  • 00:16:23.110 --> 00:16:24.200
  • I'm not concerned about it.
  • 00:16:24.210 --> 00:16:26.000
  • You marry whoever you wanna marry, but if you don't wanna
  • 00:16:26.010 --> 00:16:28.040
  • marry a black, or if you don't wanna marry yellow,
  • 00:16:28.050 --> 00:16:30.080
  • if you don't wanna marry red, or you don't wanna marry white,
  • 00:16:30.090 --> 00:16:32.190
  • and you don't wanna marry brown and it's because you got
  • 00:16:32.200 --> 00:16:35.060
  • something in you that says, "I am superior and they're
  • 00:16:35.070 --> 00:16:38.020
  • inferior," then you are racist.
  • 00:16:38.030 --> 00:16:40.160
  • You are prejudiced.
  • 00:16:40.170 --> 00:16:42.290
  • [congregation applauding]
  • 00:16:43.000 --> 00:16:47.140
  • Apostle Price: Now, I said before, you may have
  • 00:16:47.150 --> 00:16:48.270
  • preferences, but all I'm talking about is if you've
  • 00:16:48.280 --> 00:16:51.090
  • got this thing secretly down on the inside, see, that
  • 00:16:51.100 --> 00:16:57.010
  • these people are inferior.
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:16:59.120
  • And that's what has been spawned in this nation from
  • 00:16:59.130 --> 00:17:02.100
  • day one; and it's subtle, in many cases it's been
  • 00:17:02.110 --> 00:17:07.060
  • subliminal, but you can--it comes out in the open when
  • 00:17:07.070 --> 00:17:10.270
  • you challenge them with that, "Can
  • 00:17:10.280 --> 00:17:12.150
  • my son marry your daughter?" or vice versa.
  • 00:17:12.160 --> 00:17:15.270
  • Then it seems to come out in the open, see?
  • 00:17:15.280 --> 00:17:17.290
  • I am not pushing for intermarriage.
  • 00:17:18.000 --> 00:17:19.140
  • I could care less if nobody in the whole world from now until
  • 00:17:19.150 --> 00:17:22.190
  • the year 2775 ever marries outside their
  • 00:17:22.200 --> 00:17:28.050
  • color group, ethnic, whatever...
  • 00:17:28.060 --> 00:17:32.020
  • Bother me in the least, but my only point is why do you have a
  • 00:17:32.030 --> 00:17:35.220
  • problem with it if somebody decides they do wanna do it?
  • 00:17:35.230 --> 00:17:38.170
  • That's all I'm dealing with. Anybody?
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:39.270
  • Does anyone understand me?
  • 00:17:39.280 --> 00:17:41.120
  • You don't have to feel like you got to want a black or a white
  • 00:17:41.130 --> 00:17:44.070
  • or a red or brown or yellow, it's too irrelevant
  • 00:17:44.080 --> 00:17:45.280
  • and immaterial, but I wanna know if you don't, why?
  • 00:17:45.290 --> 00:17:50.070
  • And I'm trying to get you to see yourself why,
  • 00:17:50.080 --> 00:17:52.050
  • so because you may have something in there you don't
  • 00:17:52.060 --> 00:17:53.220
  • realize you have it that was very subliminally given to you
  • 00:17:53.230 --> 00:17:57.050
  • by your parents, by their parents, by their parents,
  • 00:17:57.060 --> 00:17:58.280
  • by their parents, and this has been taught.
  • 00:17:58.290 --> 00:18:01.100
  • That's how it has--how do you think it got here to
  • 00:18:01.110 --> 00:18:04.040
  • this year that we live in?
  • 00:18:04.050 --> 00:18:06.110
  • It's not genetically transmitted.
  • 00:18:06.120 --> 00:18:12.270
  • It is socially transmitted by word of mouth, and for
  • 00:18:12.280 --> 00:18:20.140
  • Christians to have it, it can't possibly come
  • 00:18:20.150 --> 00:18:25.030
  • from the Spirit of God.
  • 00:18:25.040 --> 00:18:27.010
  • It has to come from the spirit of Satan because. as I told
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:32.050
  • you before. the Scripture told us that God has made out of
  • 00:18:32.060 --> 00:18:35.010
  • one blood everybody to dwell on the face of the whole earth.
  • 00:18:35.020 --> 00:18:40.090
  • So, if we're all made out of one blood,
  • 00:18:40.100 --> 00:18:42.120
  • then my black blood ought to mix with your snow-white blood,
  • 00:18:42.130 --> 00:18:46.100
  • your red blood, your brown blood,
  • 00:18:46.110 --> 00:18:48.100
  • or whatever, if it's one blood.
  • 00:18:48.110 --> 00:18:53.120
  • And I said this before, it is a scientific--watch
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:59.120
  • my lips--scientific and medical fact, all things being equal
  • 00:18:59.130 --> 00:19:08.070
  • in reference to types of blood, all blood is interchangeable.
  • 00:19:08.080 --> 00:19:14.040
  • Doctors?
  • 00:19:14.050 --> 00:19:15.200
  • I got four physicians, trained medical physicians, sitting
  • 00:19:15.210 --> 00:19:19.170
  • right, four in a row, and they just all nodded their head.
  • 00:19:19.180 --> 00:19:23.210
  • Of course, I paid 'em 10.000 a piece to say that but--okay,
  • 00:19:23.220 --> 00:19:28.170
  • so I hope you understand.
  • 00:19:28.180 --> 00:19:29.270
  • Don't feel guilty because you don't have
  • 00:19:29.280 --> 00:19:31.090
  • eyes for somebody black.
  • 00:19:31.100 --> 00:19:33.070
  • Don't worry about it. That's not the issue.
  • 00:19:33.080 --> 00:19:34.280
  • That's not my issue, I'm not concerned with that.
  • 00:19:34.290 --> 00:19:37.250
  • Don't make any difference; if you want to, fine; if
  • 00:19:37.260 --> 00:19:39.050
  • you don't want to, fine; but I wanna know if you got
  • 00:19:39.060 --> 00:19:42.010
  • something down in here that tells you, "Look at that,
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:44.110
  • he's black, and so he's inferior."
  • 00:19:44.120 --> 00:19:47.150
  • That's wrong, and for Christians to have that kinda thinking,
  • 00:19:47.160 --> 00:19:51.240
  • that--I don't even have a word for that.
  • 00:19:51.250 --> 00:19:54.130
  • It goes beyond wrong, so I hope--anybody--does anybody
  • 00:19:54.140 --> 00:19:59.060
  • understand what I'm saying?
  • 00:19:59.070 --> 00:20:01.040
  • Okay, so don't get into saying, "Well,
  • 00:20:01.050 --> 00:20:03.210
  • I don't--I don't--I'm not attracted to black."
  • 00:20:03.220 --> 00:20:07.270
  • Guess what, I'm not attracted to dogs,
  • 00:20:07.280 --> 00:20:11.250
  • so don't lose no sleep over it.
  • 00:20:11.260 --> 00:20:14.200
  • Now, I told you to turn to 2 Corinthians.
  • 00:20:14.210 --> 00:20:18.160
  • Remember now, my--say, "Pastor's test," my acid test.
  • 00:20:18.170 --> 00:20:23.210
  • Now I wanna show you the Bible test.
  • 00:20:23.220 --> 00:20:26.050
  • I'm gonna show you the B-I-B-L-E, Bible test,
  • 00:20:26.060 --> 00:20:31.180
  • and if you fail this test, then there's something
  • 00:20:31.190 --> 00:20:36.260
  • wrong with you, and you need to address it and fix it,
  • 00:20:36.270 --> 00:20:43.130
  • because only you can fix it, because God didn't give it to
  • 00:20:43.140 --> 00:20:48.020
  • you, so he can't take it away from you.
  • 00:20:48.030 --> 00:20:52.250
  • Now, here's the Bible acid test.
  • 00:20:52.260 --> 00:20:56.000
  • Only one in the whole New Testament.
  • 00:20:56.010 --> 00:20:58.190
  • It says anything about who you are or should hook up with.
  • 00:20:58.200 --> 00:21:04.180
  • Bible, say, "Bible."
  • 00:21:04.190 --> 00:21:07.080
  • Say, "Bible."
  • 00:21:07.090 --> 00:21:09.060
  • Okay, 2 Corinthians chapter 6, beginning with verse 14.
  • 00:21:09.070 --> 00:21:14.230
  • "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers.
  • 00:21:14.240 --> 00:21:21.240
  • For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness?
  • 00:21:21.250 --> 00:21:25.290
  • And what communion has light with darkness?
  • 00:21:26.000 --> 00:21:28.280
  • And what accord has Christ with Belial?
  • 00:21:28.290 --> 00:21:31.270
  • Or what part has a believer with
  • 00:21:31.280 --> 00:21:33.120
  • an infidel?" or unbeliever.
  • 00:21:33.130 --> 00:21:35.030
  • "And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?
  • 00:21:35.040 --> 00:21:38.120
  • For you are the temple of the living God.
  • 00:21:38.130 --> 00:21:42.180
  • As God has said: 'I will dwell in them and walk among them.
  • 00:21:42.190 --> 00:21:45.260
  • And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.'"
  • 00:21:45.270 --> 00:21:50.080
  • Now, look at verse 16.
  • 00:21:50.090 --> 00:21:52.020
  • "And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?
  • 00:21:52.030 --> 00:21:54.040
  • For you are the temple of the living God."
  • 00:21:54.050 --> 00:21:55.260
  • Now, I have a question for you.
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:22:00.150
  • Is the Lord talking to the white part of the body of Christ only,
  • 00:22:00.160 --> 00:22:09.260
  • or is it possible that he could be talking to the black part and
  • 00:22:09.270 --> 00:22:13.000
  • the brown part and the yellow part and the red part?
  • 00:22:13.010 --> 00:22:22.190
  • Excuse me?
  • 00:22:22.200 --> 00:22:23.290
  • congregation: All.
  • 00:22:24.000 --> 00:22:25.160
  • Apostle Price: He said you are.
  • 00:22:25.170 --> 00:22:27.050
  • Who are?
  • 00:22:27.060 --> 00:22:28.150
  • You that are in the body of Christ.
  • 00:22:28.160 --> 00:22:32.050
  • Now, I faintly remember a passage of Scripture that I
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:36.070
  • heard many years ago.
  • 00:22:36.080 --> 00:22:37.200
  • You might be familiar with it.
  • 00:22:37.210 --> 00:22:39.130
  • It's found in John chapter 3, verse 16,
  • 00:22:39.140 --> 00:22:42.190
  • and it says, "For God so loved the world."
  • 00:22:42.200 --> 00:22:47.280
  • Now, how do you define the term "world"?
  • 00:22:47.290 --> 00:22:54.070
  • White world?
  • 00:22:54.080 --> 00:22:57.010
  • Black world, brown, red, yellow.
  • 00:22:57.020 --> 00:23:00.180
  • "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son,
  • 00:23:00.190 --> 00:23:06.000
  • who--" now watch this one, "that
  • 00:23:06.010 --> 00:23:08.140
  • whosoever," whosoever, "believes--"
  • 00:23:08.150 --> 00:23:15.020
  • I'm a whosoever.
  • 00:23:20.210 --> 00:23:22.290
  • I just happen to be black.
  • 00:23:23.000 --> 00:23:25.150
  • You're a whosoever.
  • 00:23:25.160 --> 00:23:26.260
  • You just happen to be white, but God said whosoever,
  • 00:23:26.270 --> 00:23:29.220
  • so whosoever would have to include black,
  • 00:23:29.230 --> 00:23:31.110
  • white, brown, red, green, or yellow.
  • 00:23:31.120 --> 00:23:33.040
  • So, if I'm the temple of God and you're the temple of God,
  • 00:23:33.050 --> 00:23:37.020
  • then why can't we marry, even though the exterior
  • 00:23:37.030 --> 00:23:42.270
  • may be a different shade?
  • 00:23:42.280 --> 00:23:45.110
  • I mean, that's if we choose to. Are you following?
  • 00:23:45.120 --> 00:23:47.010
  • I'm trying to get down why--what's the problem.
  • 00:23:47.020 --> 00:23:51.050
  • If you can't--because, see, if--I said it before.
  • 00:23:51.060 --> 00:23:53.180
  • If black is inferior, then God is inferior,
  • 00:23:53.190 --> 00:23:59.160
  • because God made black.
  • 00:23:59.170 --> 00:24:02.180
  • You can't find one black person on this planet--I don't
  • 00:24:02.190 --> 00:24:06.190
  • care where you go, you can't find one black
  • 00:24:06.200 --> 00:24:08.150
  • person on this planet that made themselves black.
  • 00:24:08.160 --> 00:24:17.230
  • You can't find one white person on this planet
  • 00:24:17.240 --> 00:24:20.170
  • that made themselves white.
  • 00:24:20.180 --> 00:24:22.280
  • You can't find one brown or red or yellow that made themselves
  • 00:24:22.290 --> 00:24:29.030
  • that color; and since God created man,
  • 00:24:29.040 --> 00:24:32.290
  • God must have made us this color.
  • 00:24:33.000 --> 00:24:37.150
  • And if it's all right with God to have these different colors,
  • 00:24:37.160 --> 00:24:42.250
  • it better be all right with you, 'cause you ain't created nothing
  • 00:24:42.260 --> 00:24:50.140
  • but a bunch of confusion.
  • 00:24:50.150 --> 00:24:57.040
  • All right, now watch this.
  • 00:24:57.050 --> 00:24:59.000
  • Let's go back and analyze this.
  • 00:24:59.010 --> 00:25:00.260
  • This is the acid test, biblical acid test.
  • 00:25:00.270 --> 00:25:03.000
  • "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers."
  • 00:25:03.010 --> 00:25:05.020
  • That's the only restriction.
  • 00:25:05.030 --> 00:25:07.000
  • Ain't got nothing to do with color, it's about unbelievers.
  • 00:25:07.010 --> 00:25:09.140
  • In other words, believers being connected up.
  • 00:25:09.150 --> 00:25:12.010
  • If two--if one white unbeliever marries a white believer,
  • 00:25:12.020 --> 00:25:18.090
  • they're unequally yoked.
  • 00:25:18.100 --> 00:25:22.180
  • If a red, black, brown, or yellow believer hooks up with a
  • 00:25:22.190 --> 00:25:28.150
  • corresponding color non-believer,
  • 00:25:28.160 --> 00:25:31.130
  • they're unequally yoked.
  • 00:25:31.140 --> 00:25:34.060
  • It don't make no never mind if they're not believers.
  • 00:25:34.070 --> 00:25:37.150
  • You're unequally yoked, unequally yoked,
  • 00:25:37.160 --> 00:25:42.090
  • so he tells us don't be unequally yoked,
  • 00:25:42.100 --> 00:25:46.250
  • so if I'm not to be unequally yoked then that means I can yoke
  • 00:25:46.260 --> 00:25:50.100
  • up with any other believer.
