Jim Wallis Challenges White Christians

st-louis-county-justice-building-in-clayton-missouriJim Wallis, president and founder of Sojourners, “one of several faith leaders who are heading to Ferguson, Missouri this weekend to march for justice, is challenging Christians to put their faith ahead of their race when it comes to issues concerning racial relations” (emphasis added).

I’ve tried to make a similar argument here.

I sure hope you too will take the time to read Jim Wallis’ argument and then pray about the matter–seeing where the Lord Jesus leads.

    TC,

    I came across this Jim Wallis quote today: the U.S. was “established as a white society, founded upon the genocide of another race and then the enslavement of yet another”, and this “original sin has affected most everything about our nation’s life ever since.”

  2. Jon Hughes says:

    Would it be too controversial to draw comparisons with the founding of Israel as a nation in Joshua’s day with the conquest of Canaan? Or is that excused on theological grounds?

      Jon, to be honest, I’ve never really process the matter in those terms. Neither do I know how beneficial such a quest is. Now, if such is historically the case, then it’s worth the to-know, but at the same time, a vehement rejection.
