The death of George Floyd at the hands of police in the summer of 2020 shocked the nation. As riots rocked American cities, Christians affirmed from the pulpit and in social media that "black lives matter" and that racial justice "is a gospel issue." But what if there is more to the social justice movement than those Christians understand? Even worse: What if they’ve been duped into preaching ideas that actually oppose the Kingdom of God? Join us today as our guest, a preacher, professor, and cultural apologist, explains the sinister worldview behind the social justice movement and Critical Race Theory—revealing how it already has infiltrated some seminaries, leading to internal denominational conflict, canceled careers, and lost livelihoods.
Join us today to hear the poignant true story of a young black woman struggling to grow up in a housing project in New Orleans. Facing abject poverty, rampant crime, and formidable challenges, she believed against all hope that she would somehow survive. Her mother taught her how to pray—and pray she did—even when all hope of a better life seemed fleeting and perhaps impossible. As time passed, this woman struggled to not give up, and fervently asked God to perform a miracle and deliver her from the projects to the world she hopes and dreams of. Don’t miss this inspiring story of what it means to truly persevere in the midst of our struggles and to trust God completely.
