The Assault On Black People By Pastor Voddie Baucham!

I agree with this post here, completely. Thank you, Austin Channing Brown, Christena Cleveland, Drew Hart and Efrem Smith for a much needed response to Pastor Voddie Baucham "Thoughts on Ferguson."
 For me, what Ferguson has demonstrated in a very public way is the deep divisions between the various ways that Christians understand race in America.
As black evangelical leaders, we believe it is important to respond to The Gospel Coalition’s publishing of Pastor Voddie Baucham’s Thoughts on Ferguson, a perspective we deem to be extremely anti-black. First, we condemn The Gospel Coalition’s editorial leadership for its moral and pastoral failure in publishing such an anti-black viewpoint. No Christian organization should ever participate in dishonoring the image of God in black people, especially at a time when so many black Americans are in pain. Second, we lament the internalized anti-black racism that Pastor Voddie conveyed in his article and the fact that it has been used to further support White-on-Black violence among Christians. Here, we offer a different perspective, one that we believe honors the image of God in black people. Rest Here:

  2. After reading both articles, I have to say that I fail to see the issues that others see with Pastor Baucham's article. The glaring problem to me in BOTH articles that continues to be the issue in almost every discussion surrounding Ferguson, Trayvon Martin, etc... is SIN. How is it that a Pastor, a so-called preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ wrote a whole article blaming fatherlessness, violence, etc. and never mentioned sin?!?! His take on the condition of black Americans is slightly similar to that of Bill Cosby's several years back...and we see the current state of affairs Mr. Cosby is in! SIN is the root of the issues in every community....not a lack of fathers or violence! People continue looking at this thing from a humanist perspective, but like it or not it is a sin issue. Pastor Baucham said nothing new, nothing that's never been said before. We can thank him for adding no more clarity to the issue than there was before he wrote that editorial piece of his. Where was an accurate application of scripture to the problem "man of God"?! We can't continue to deal with these things with the same cliche answers and solutions. Until we want to talk about sin, the conversation is going nowhere. And that's the way Satan wants it! We keep falling in this tired trap because it works! This has nothing to do with skin color and everything to do with the fact that we war against powers and principalities not flesh and blood. God created this world and everything in it. The whole duty of man is to fear God and keep His commandments. Many will never accept this and as a result will die in their sins, be they black or white, bigot or tolerant. We as Christ's disciples must change the conversation from race to the real issue...sin! Souls are at stake and lives are being lost for eternity!

  3. I'm having deep problems with American Christianity because of the many "Christians" who do not affirm the value of Black life. It actually happened today. This article is so encouraging. I can't even fully express it, thank God for these 4.

  4. I saw this comment some were: the only people who are going to defend Voddie's post are white conservative evangelicals & more fundamentalist-type blacks.

  5. Voddie has proven to be the new Bill Cosby
