"The Church and Ethnic Harmony" week at The Master's University:
Resources for really understanding the context and discerning the oppression going on today:
Seven Pastors discuss the Race Issue in 2020 in the USA (Video): Understanding Race and Reconciliation – a really helpful panel (16:00 in) that helps you hear the heart of gospel-loving, theologically minded African American pastors share their hearts.
My sermon on ethnocentric oppression in America Today and our need to follow Jesus:
Article: George Floyd and Me by Shai Linne
Bearing the Image Identity, the Work of Christ, and the Church (T4G 2008 plenary sermon)
Panel: A Time to Speak discussing Mike Brown, Eric Garner, and a Conversation on Ethnic Strife Issues with Voddie Baucham, Thabiti Anyabwile, Bryan Loritts, Matt Chandler, and Darrin Patrick moderated by Ed Stetzer
Essay: The Case for Reparations by Ta-Nehisi Coates
From the other side (which I think is incorrect): James White goes on for 2 hours on issues with my perspective (and the ones shared at T4G)
Albert Mohler on structural sin and systemic racism (audio and manuscript)
Also, we confess as a church in our confession of faith: 16. The Christian and Social Order. Recognizing whose created order this is, every Christian should seek to bring industry, government, and society as a whole under the sway of the scriptural principles of righteousness, truth, and love. Christians should be ready to work with all men of good will in any good cause without compromise to Christ. Improvement of society can be permanently helpful only when rooted in the regeneration of individuals. (Ex. 20:3-17; Lev. 6:2-5; Mic. 6:8; Zech. 8:16; Matt. 5:3-16; Luke 4:18-21; 10:27-37; Rom. 12-14; Phil. 1.9; Col. 3:12-4:1; Philem.; James 1:27; 2:8)
T4G Affirmation and Denial 17 (2006): We affirm that God calls his people to display his glory in the reconciliation of the nations within the Church, and that God’s pleasure in this reconciliation is evident in the gathering of believers from every tongue and tribe and people and nation. We acknowledge that the staggering magnitude of injustice against African-Americans in the name of the Gospel presents a special opportunity for displaying the repentance, forgiveness, and restoration promised in the Gospel. We further affirm that evangelical Christianity in America bears a unique responsibility to demonstrate this reconciliation with our African-American brothers and sisters.
We deny that any Church can accept racial prejudice, discrimination, or division without betraying the Gospel.
