This summer, I had the opportunity to teach on racism in response to some questions people at Riv asked. I figured MLK Day would be a good day to post a clip from that message about what the Gospel has to say about racism. If you would like to watch the entire message, you can do so on the Riv site or app.
"The movement upward [toward God] cannot be separated from the movement toward our neighbor. Both belong indissolubly together...Standing under God's rule means living in community with God and with the church." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
“The peace of God, or the peace of Christ, can never be separated from God himself and Christ himself. If we want peace to rule in our lives, God must rule in our lives. Christ must rule in our loves. God’s purpose is not to give you peace separate from himself. His purpose is to give you peace by being the most glorious person in your life…the key to peace is keeping together what the angels keep together: Glory to God, and peace to man. A heart bent on showing the glory of God will know the peace of God.” - John Piper
