Since the Trayvon-Zimmerman verdict, just about everyone is chiming in on race relations in America again. Well, I have a different take.
I believe the American Church must take the lead. We cannot wait for unregenerate, unredeemed, unbelievers to lead the way.
But too often the church just goes along with the American culture of oppression and discrimination, and we wonder why we are dragging along on race relations.
The church still mirrors the culture too much. It needs to be countercultural. In other words, the church must take the lead. White evangelical males in positions of power and influence must take the lead.
I remain hopeful…
