Powerful Speach From Matt Chandler At The #Mlk50conference!!
Reader I've been watching live stream the MLK50 conference it has been great. Over 3,500 church members and leaders are gathering in Memphis for the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s MLK50: Gospel Reflections from the Mountaintop conference in order to commemorate 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination.
Matt Chandler kicked off day two of the conference with his keynote, "Understanding and Overcoming the Inconsistencies in White Evangelicals on Racial Issues." In all honesty this was a good speech which came from a place of love and desire to see people reconcile.
This was refreshing, coming from the deep south, I've dealt with racism my whole life, I shouldn't have to deal with it in the Christian world too. It should be totally different for those who profess Christ. Now it's just "subtle".
There are many who name the name of Christ and aren't true believers as the bible says if you hate your brother the truth is not in you (paraphrase). And there are those who truly know Christ but seems they aren't aware of what they're doing. I praise God for this sermon and his speaking out on it. Though it should be normal.
