“It is impossible to do Christian theology with integrity in America without asking the question, What has the gospel to do with the Black struggle for liberation?”

Rev. Dr. James Cone

The Christian Church, for many, has been seen as a catalyst for justice and righteousness across the United States. After all, the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement was grounded in the Church. Leaders such as Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Fannie Lou Hamer, Rep. John Lewis, and Rosa Parks cite Christian theology and biblical teachings as influencing factors in their fight for equity. Though, for many others, the Christian Church has dominated and oppressed. Enslaved peoples were forced to abandon their identities and adopt the faith. The bible was even used to continue the enslavement of our Black and Brown neighbors. No human institution is perfect, the Church is no exception. The good news is that we are in the midst of an opportunity to use the Gospel as a means of anti-racist liberation and education in our own lives. As Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. taught, “Our goal is to create a Beloved Community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.” #ThisIsOurTime #YOUthFaithRace
