How did Jesus address the ethnic divide between Jews and Samaritans and how does his example help us address our racial divide? It's abundantly obvious that there is a significant rift amongst the "races" of America. Jensy Acosta examines Jesus' example on how we can address our own problem in America
The average American can’t help but notice that we are living in a racially divided generation. On the news, we hear of the brutal deaths of unarmed black men and the shooting of police officers. Most recently, we have seen how this tension has caused rioting and unrest in Milwaukee. On a daily basis these deaths are being televised. Can the Bible contribute anything to the dialogue of hope and unity?
Some boys never grow into the men that God created them to be because they have been invaded by neglect, abandonment, pride, anger, hatred and oppression. Some grow up in communities that have been overtaken by poverty, violence, and failing institutions. Pastor Efram Smith proposes that we can go about having Christ invade our lives for the sake of our manhood.
Are Colin Kaepernick's critics correct? Is it true that his sit down protest was nothing more than a slanderous demonstration of entitlement and lack of appreciation for the freedoms this country affords him? Author Adam Coleman dives in on this issue that has put America, once again, on two sides of this ongoing battle in this "land of the free, and the home of the brave".
Ever since the commencement of the 2016 Presidential campaign race, a huge topic that has stuck out, aside from the "disappearing emails" from Hilary Clinton, is this wall between Mexico and the U.S. that Donald Trump plans to build should he become President. So, the question that comes to the believers mind is; "Would Jesus Endorse It?" Author Clifton Means dives into this very polarizing subject.
There seems to be a burgeoning problem in the black community: People are coming to the erroneous conclusion that Christianity is “The White Man’s Religion” and thus incompatible with black empowerment. For many believers, who happen to be of African descent, the balancing act of holding onto the faith while being true to their ethnic heritage is like having a pebble in their shoe. Is it really the case that Christianity was, to our forefathers, nothing more than the mental bondage that perpetuated the subjugation of their physical selves? Adam Coleman's studies say otherwise.
