Why Southern Baptists (Should) Care About Race

A few weeks ago we covered two issues that are politically charged, yet loaded with Gospel implications. On January 15, we discussed the tragedy of abortion as we somberly recognized Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. The following week, we addressed an equally important (and equally polarizing) issue: the tragedy of racism.

I believe that local churches can and should fight the injustice of abortion. I also believe we can and should fight the injustice of racism. Both issues are rooted in creation–every human life is precious because we’re all made in the image of God. Both issues are rooted in the cross–every human life is precious because Jesus died to redeem us, red and yellow, black and white.

When we first broached the issue of racism, we tried to show a video in our morning service about why racial reconciliation is a Southern Baptist issue. Since many weren’t able to understand the video due to technical difficulties, we’re posting it again here. May God use it for His glory and our good.
