Race, Politics & Outrage in the Church

Released June 22, 2021 by Mavericks & Misfits with Jeff Lyle


All Christians understand on some level that we are get along with each other. Fewer understand the intense spiritual reality that God has established that makes our unity a priority. Jesus did not merely die for individuals so that they could go to Heaven. Jesus died to make people who are vastly different from one another to become one in Him. Sadly, this reality of oneness with each other has become an ever-diminishing concept in the modern Church. Especially in America, we have become divided, scattered and weakened through things that we have allowed to undermine our unity which flows from oneness. This trend must be called out and reversed. In this episode of Mavericks & Misfits, Jeff doesn’t even attempt to be diplomatic or politically correct. He calls Christians of all ethnicities and political persuasions to realign with the oneness we have in Christ, and to renounce lesser loyalties which divide us. Exposing the core issues among blacks and whites, Jeff includes a call for us all to repent of our self-serving, self-seeking ways. There is plenty of room for us to 1) be helped with the content of this episode or 2) to grow more offended with those with whom we do not share racial nor political views. We can be helped, or we can be hardened - the choice is the listener’s to make. Additional resources are available at TransformingTruth.org
