Race, Racism, and the Christian’s Response
Fear, anger, and violence are tearing through communities across the nation as peace, hope, and reconciliation seem to slip even further out of reach. In Pastor Skip Heitzig’s interview with Pastor Tony Clark, they discuss racial tension, the danger of the church staying silent, and the opportunity to move toward gospel-centered justice.
The Church and Racism – Acts 10:27-36
Solomon admonished us, “Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth” (Proverbs 27:1). We neither planned for nor wanted the virus and subsequent lockdown that was imposed on our globe. But we experienced it, and we talked about it. And we neither planned for nor wanted the murder of George Floyd in Minnesota last week and the deep racial division that has surfaced since, including widespread pandemonium. But we are experiencing it in our nation currently, and we must talk about it. Let’s consider a scriptural account of racism and four steps to deal with it.
