“Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.” 1 Corinthians 9:26-27, NASB
“They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” Acts 2:42, NASB
“The wicked are not so, but they are like chaff which the wind drives away.” Psalm 1:5-6, NASB
“For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.” Hebrews 2:1, NASB
As a Christian, we must address the problems facing our world today from a biblical worldview. Standing on one side of the divide and shouting verses isn't helping. Allowing the world to frame the discussion is dividing us (Not U.S. but US the CHURCH!). In this post-Christian landscape we need to explain the world through the gospel. In this three part mini-series I will try to frame recent and past issues of race, racism, prejudice, pride and power within a Christian worldview. The Bible addresses this subject, literally, FROM BEGINNING TO END.
