The church was behind the curb on so many topics because they chose to ignore them. Now we’re trying to catch up on speaking to our young people about sex and pornography, we’re trying to fix issues in marriage because couples were too embarrassed to bring them to their leaders. I don’t want this to be one of them. So.. I’m gonna say it. The church has a problem with race.
2 Corinthians 4:8-12 New International Version (NIV)
8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. 11 For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body. 12 So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
