Connecting Faith 6-15-18 | The Bible on Social Media | Dr. John Perkins on One Blood: Parting Words to the Church on Race
The Bible is trending on social media and while that is a positive reality, we need to engage when it is being weaponized in order to justify a policy decision. Attorney General Jeff Sessions referenced Romans 13 in comments prepared in response to criticism from church leaders about the separation of immigrant parents from their children at the border. We need to remember that God ordained the family before government and be clear about how God feels about family.
Dr. John Perkins, minister and civil rights activist, raised his challenge to the church from his book One Blood: Parting Words to the Church on Race. God is moving in the church in the area of racial reconciliation, and Dr. Perkins has great hope that we will arrive at a place of washing each others’ wounds.
