Racism and the Western Church

Christian Life

How do we respond to racism as believers in Christ? Where is the balance between what the world teaches and how we, the church, should respond?

In this special bonus episode of Verity with Phylicia Masonheimer, I interview my friends and co-pastors Emmanuel and Samantha Danso of Grace Innovation Church in London, United Kingdom. They offer a gospel perspective on an issue that is dividing many in the body of Christ.

Covered in this episode:

  • If racism is sin, isn’t the gospel the answer? Why should we do more?
  • How do we respond to the phrase “Black Lives Matter” when it has become so closely associated with the organization by the same name, which is known to oppose biblical values on some issues?
  • What can brothers and sisters in Christ do to walk with those who are experiencing racism?
