This week has been terrible. Blatant racism. Protests turned violent. Political division taken to new heights. Looting. Destruction. Venomous words on social media. And yes…even apathy (also extremely ugly).
This post isn’t trying to solve – or even really address – issues of race in this country. This post is about equipping you – and me – to approach those necessary, hard, important conversations with a “Bible Lens.”
Make Truth Your Foundation
There are too many emotions and experiences tied up in the conversations around racism for us not to have our starting point be this truth…
There is no Jew or Greek, slave or free, male and female; since you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
Galatians 3:28, CSB
We are all one. All of us. God created each person. Each man. Each woman. Each skin color. Each one loved enough to be died for. Period.
