Many of you have been discouraged, angered and alarmed at the shooting, at the chaos and of the destruction that has been taking place in Kenosha WI. Pastor Carter originally had a different message planned for the week, but the Lord woke him up to give us this message instead. Today we are going to talk about what to do when the city is burning.
It’s alarming how quickly so many are to call someone else a racist. Of course, we mustn’t shrink back from demanding justice where racism exists, but we need to remember that the enemy is not just ‘out there,’ but also IN HERE. Any time we pre-categorize people (even as a racist), we mentally assign a value to their personhood that is less than our own or someone else’s, and we are committing the same heart-sin as a racist.
