A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
Today is MLK Day and it’s more than just a day off from work, it’s a day we remember the man and his message. This weekend I posted a new column on ChadWhittle.com that I hope you’ll read about how browsing a box of old cds reminded me about how one day people from all races and places, speaking all languages, will come together to lift their voices to worship God in Heaven, that when it happens, it’s gonna be a beautiful sound.
We live in a culture that has a lot of racial problems, which isn’t new, it’s been that way since really, the beginning of time. There has always been people that have looked down or even hated others for various reasons.
We’ve seen the debate on racial issues playout in the culture recently from the NFL protests to the alt right movement.
People wonder how can we fix this? How can we solve our racial inequality? And frankly, how can we all just get along with one another and stop all this division?
A lot of people view it as a political issue. They believe if the government would just pass more laws and regulations, that could solve the problem, but the government can never fully solve this problem, because it’s not a political problem. It’s a spiritual problem.
If you’re a Christian, and you follow the teachings of Christ, then you, more than anyone, you are required to love others. It’s what our faith is based on. If you have the love of Christ living in your heart, you cannot hate others. It’s an impossibility. If we all could learn to love others the way Christ demands, and the way He showed His love for us, then many of our problems, racism included, would go away.
The only way to truly end racism is to take a knee at the cross.
