Sien hierdie twee bronne – ‘n ‘wit’ en ‘swart’ Christen – wat albei verduidelik wat die onderliggende probleem is met die onlangse polisie brutaliteit en anargistiese geweld en onluste van die BLM-Antifa bewegings, nl. die antichristelike liberale neo-marxistiese ongeloofsprobleem wat die Christelike geloof en beskawingsvisie hartgrondig haat en wil vernietig onder alle gemeenskappe:

On Race and Black Lives Matter, dr. Voddie Baucham

“This morning in a Zoom teleconference, Voddie Baucham addressed about 80 men on matters of race and the Black Lives Matter movement. Most of those in attendance were men in the ministry and residing in South Africa.

What Dr. Baucham said was wise, humble, and insightful, so I want to summarize the main ideas of his talk below. I typed as he spoke and got the crucial points. I’ll follow this with a sentence or two of my own in red.”

“On how pastors should address these issues – Don’t be simplistic. There are many other factors at play than just race. For example, those that grow up without a father are several times more likely to drop out of school, land in jail, etc. So disparities are not just about race. Moreover, when a group of 13-year-old girls were surveyed, 9% of whites said they have had sex, and 21% of blacks said they have had sex. That is telling. So there are many issues in play. Address them all. (See Doug Wilson’s take on Father Hunger and Future Men.)

On how to fix racism – Blacking out your screen and hash tagging #Black Lives Matter doesn’t do anything to help blacks. Men of God must preach about the dangers of sexual immorality and fatherlessness. Stop preaching about things we can’t change and start preaching where we can help. (In the end,, it is the gospel of Jesus Christ that breaks down the dividing wall of hostility (Eph 2:14). Only this can ultimately bring peace between men.”)

Is it Really about Race?, dr. Peter Jones

What is behind these riots? Is it a rising ideology of anti-American cultural Marxism, ready to reject the free market of constitutional democracy, free speech (as in contemporary universities) and the free exercise of theistic/Twoist religion?

Let us trust that the peace-loving side of the protests wins out and that the classic American system “in God we Trust,” like the British system “God save the Queen,” will survive as political Western expressions of religious Twoism. The rising “raze-the-system” view of culture is religiously Oneist and pagan, and is a genuine threat, as Albert Mohler warns in his book that appeared last week, The Gathering Storm(Nelson Books, 2020). Having a holy God as a separate source of authority and morals, beyond the quixotic power of sinful human beings, is a protection against the inevitable cruelty of state totalitarianism.

Contemporary progressivism, in the name of freedom, naively wants to erase all reference to the Creator, deny anything outside of the human or the natural, in favor of a system based on one’s right to self-define. It makes the fallible human being the source of ultimate truth, just as Marxism has always done. These huge issues are no longer bubbling below the surface of our culture. They have erupted in scores of cities in the form of rocks, cement-filled bottles, two-by-fours, and mailbox bombs. It appears that our nation is being taken over bit by bit by a Marxist revolution that has very little to do with helping black people but is only using them to advance a goal to overthrow our  government structures built on Constitutional democracy.

Christians desire the good for human society, but such good eventually can come only through a spiritual revival. We must confess any form of racism in our hearts and pray that the Spirit of God will lead our divided culture to an understanding of God’s tender-heartedness for lost sinners.

In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 Jn. 4:8-10).

The following words are from Jesus, when he could hardly breathe, as he called out his Father’s name. Abandoned even by the Father, he yet called “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” His message of forgiveness still calls out to racists, fascists, hypocritical Christians, angry shop-owners, hate-filled White Supremicists and ambitious politicians—the whole lot of us!

God our Creator is the humble, condescending lover of sinners who was crushed for our sinful hearts, yet promises purity, hope, change and future life with him on a renewed earth. None of the gods of paganism have these characteristics. Islam and Rabbinic Judaism have no cross, no ultimate sacrifice that will guarantee to sinful human beings a state of ultimate innocence. Surely this message, you say, cannot be true, but it is.

The overwhelming God, so great we cannot know his mind (1 Corinthians 2:1; Rom. 11:36) who created everything and rules over everything for eternity surely could not be described as humble and loving, unless the propitiation of the cross was his idea—and it is! ”
