There is probably no issue more highly-charged in modern America than the issue of race and racism. And front and center in that discussion is Black Lives Matter—both as a movement and an organization.
We cannot call ourselves Christians and say that black lives (or any lives) don’t matter. The bible explicitly condemns racism. But the issue of Black Lives Matter is bigger than racism. It’s about words and definitions and politics and agendas.
So what exactly are those words, definitions, policies, and agendas? Is there a difference between believing that black lives matter and supporting the Black Lives Matter organization?
How do we overcome the division and hatred that surrounds this topic? How do we love each other well and righteously, as scripture calls us to do?
This week, Peter, Aaron, and guest hosts Dashawn Cousins, Sarah Haynor, and Aaron Profitt discuss these important questions, and how Christians can pursue love and unity in the midst of so much division.
“If we’re not careful and wise with what we’re saying, we elevate other identities over our identity with Christ, and it’s causing this division. What’s really important is that we look at each other as God has designed us and we celebrate that. And what’s most important is that we are brothers and sisters in Christ. We’re united now.” ~ Aaron Currin“If we’re not careful and wise with what we’re saying, we elevate other identities over our identity with Christ.
