Had a stimulating conversation tonight about racism. Here is how I sum it all up.
Racism is a sin against God first and foremost. Ultimately its wrong because God has created us all equally and no one has more value as a human being than another.
It doesn’t matter how many times we hold hands and sing “We Are The World,” external solutions that the world offers will never fix the internal problem of racism in our hearts. They may help a little but only the transforming power of Jesus can eradicate sin from your life. Only a transformed heart can be completely free of racism.
Unfortunately, racism will always exist until Jesus returns. Why you ask? People are sinful, we are depraved and our hearts are bent towards evil.
Once again we come back to the simple truth that only the Gospel of Jesus Christ can completely transform a heart and be the solution for our broken world.
