LISTEN NOW! One of the most important aspects of The Church today is that we are walking in unity with one another. Presently, The Church is being critical of issues taking place within America. If someone is a child of light, found in Jesus Christ, they can see what is happening. If not, their minds are blinded. We are called to be family; we cannot be a dysfunctional family. When the Church should be the most vocal about the existence of racism in our nation, it appears to be just the opposite. When Bishop T.D. Jakes was asked about the issue of race, he replied, “The Church is totally silent about race. We’re family, but we’re a dysfunctional family because we cannot talk about the elephant in the middle of the room….”
We cannot lie to ourselves and say that the existence of racism in the Church is okay. If we say that we love God, while there is hate in our heart towards our brother, then we are liars. 1 John 4:20
clarifies this, “Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.” To see someone acknowledge their sin and ask forgiveness for it is a powerful reality. To see 3 million men gathered together in our nation’s capital, repenting for the sin of racism, this is beyond description. Watch the full story unfold, more from Bishop T.D. Jakes, the gathering of 3 million men, and so much more. Also shared in this segment: repentance, unity, Promise Keepers, and forgiveness. Greg and John shared in this segment.
