Viking custom, typical of Gmc., distinguished morð (O. N.) "slaying." The former involved concealment, or slaying a man by night or when asleep, and was a heinous crime. Since a lot of email and phone calls from visitors to the website and FAM Fellowship members concern questions regarding whether or not it’s okay to stand for a second or subsequent marriage, and specific answers to these questions MUST come to each of us from the Lord through serious Bible study and seeking His will through prayer and fasting, this page is provided to answer such questions only in general terms and its primary purpose is to address some of the things churches and Christian leaders teach and promote that are not supported by what the Bible actually says.
Author’s Notes: While this article argues that colorblindness as a concept is problematic, I’d also like to acknowledge that colorblindness as a term is problematic, as it could easily be considered an example of ableist language. I just see people.” Or maybe: “We are all just people.” Or it might have been “…” – the sound of silence.While most everyone attempts to support their position with scripture, it is often taken out of context or with total disregard for other Biblical teaching.But since God’s word can never accurately and reliably be interpreted to mean anything inconsistent with the rest of the Bible, it’s easy to dismiss many opinions because of the double talk and verbal contortions required to reach such conclusions.In the end, I chose to use the term, but I hope that in ridding ourselves of the concept, we can also rid ourselves of the term. Such comments (and racial avoidance) have a name: colorblindness.Thank you to my former students who have shared their race-based experiences, enabling me to write this article. The colorblind approach to race is not an accidental phenomenon; rather, it is the result of an education – a training – that many of us have received, especially White Americans.
