This year, 2010, will be the second Major League Baseball’s Civil Rights Baseball Game. For the second consecutive year, the game will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio. The hosts team will be the Cincinnati Reds.
This game which at first was an pre-season exhibition game, last year became a regularly scheduled ball game between the Chicago White Sox and the Cincinnati Reds. This year the opponent for the Cincinnati Reds will be the first place St. Louis Cardinals.
But it is more that just a game—it is a weekend of events. On Saturday, May 14th will be a roundtable discussion held by Charles Ogletree, Harvard law professor. It will be held at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center which is adjacent to the baseball stadium. The panel will include Cincinnati’s Hall of Famer, Joe Morgan, and former star, Barry Larkin; Cincinnati Bengal’s head coach, Marvin Lewis; actor Mark Curry and tennis legend Zina Garrison.
James 1:1,“James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.”
From this opening statement of James we can see that he knew where the dispersed Israelites were. If the research is done we can learn much from history. The Bible is also a very reliable history book, but the establishment does not want us to be pointed anywhere near the Bible nor do they want anyone to take interest in it. Another thing; if the facts of history prove that the covenant people still exist in the world, then those claiming today to be the “chosen people” of God, would be proven wrong. This would be politically disastrous to their nation.
