The alt-right movement represents the worse in the heart of sinful mankind. They spew hatred and spawn violence, many under the guise of what they call christian.
I’ve been a Christian since I was 8 years old. I have studied the Bible for years and think I have a grasp of what Jesus expects from His followers. None of His expectations include hate, disdain, division, violence, or racism.
As an anglo-American Christian, I have a responsibility to speak out against those who may look like me but represent something else entirely. My African-American brothers and sisters need to know where I stand. I will not risk misunderstanding by remaining silent.
I do not stand with those hate groups who hold to white-supremacy. Count me with my brothers and sisters who name the name of Christ regardless of their color, economics, politics, or language. The Bible recognizes only TWO RACES – the race of the first Adam and the race of the second Adam, Christ. Sin, not skin is the determining factor.
Our country’s problems are not racial, economic, political, or educational. The primary problem is a SIN problem, and we have the answer – the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
