Once Again How to Live Under A Morally Unqualified President!

Image
Reader what a good timing for a re-post. Pastor John Piper posted this article on January 20, 2017 and got a lot of backlash....but it's even more comforting today. Let us continue to pray for love to reign in our country - the love of God and our neighbor, not the love of power, pride, money or anything else. They will know we are Christians by our love.

“Donald Trump treats language — the medium of truth — as a wax nose to be bent and molded to create a desired outcome, whether it corresponds to the truth or not.”

Is The Church The Answer To Racial Reconciliation??

Reader Jesus washing the feet of the disciples (John 13:1–17) occurred in the upper room, just prior to the Last Supper and has significance in three ways. For Jesus, it was the display of His humility and His servanthood. For the disciples, the washing of their feet was in direct contrast to their heart attitudes at that time. For us, washing feet is symbolic of our role in the body of Christ. With that being said please join me in thanking Victory World Church for this beautiful message and illustration. The pastor washes the feet of a young black man and explains why he thinks the saying "Make America Great Again" only applies to one set of people.


 What an amazing example this pastor have set. I admire his boldness to speak the truth in love. I know this is a challenging message for all of us. We all can do better to seek to understand others before we seek to be understood. If you notice the majority responses from his post are from people of color who live exactly what he described.




Our world needs healing rather than more division. We are in need of freedom from prejudices. As followers of Jesus, it begins with us. His life is our example. The only way to begin viewing people with eyes of grace versus race is to die to our own agendas and accept God’s. We must take up our cross and not only start having honest conversations, but intentionally walking in love. Only then will we be transformed and gain a new heart for all of His people.

  1. OK my question is why is this man washing already clean feet? He walked up with shoes and socks on. This is another passage of scripture that's taken out of context. It's clear that it has not been researched. Jesus didn't just decide that...Hummm you know, I feel like washing feet today. There was a reason for his actions. Of course we know the part of Him being humble. But it was also because their feet were actually dirty from walking in the dust and dirt all day. Also, they didn't have tables like we have today. So it would be difficult to see primitive things through modern eyes. When they sat down they stretched out their legs and feet. So it was customary of the host to wash his guest feet. So does this white man washing a black mans feet bridge the racial divide? Not at all. There are white doctors who take care of black people everyday, white teachers who teach our children everyday, white firemen who run in and out of black people burning house, white lawyers who defend black people and contrary to poplar opinion there are white policemen who put their life on the line for black people everyday. There was a time when the N word was a hateful word to describe the black race. But today The N word used by black people is a term of endearment. But let a white person say it...Call the media...lets burn the place down, they should be fired. But that's another story.

  2. I think this was a great example of a pastor truly fulfilling the purpose of the church. He has confronted an issue in our society from a biblical standpoint, which is the way the Lord Jesus requires us to resolve societal ills. Jesus confronted racism and prejudices within his own camp so that they would minister the Gospel without respector of persons, and we should, as Christ followers, do the same. There are many uncomfortable issues Jesus dealt with head on and if we don't continue to expose the "elephants in the room" as He did, they will just keep blocking the real message of Jesus Christ and true Christianity.

    It is very disheartening to see a racist Christian, and that is one area the world generally expects the church to have conquered because its ugliness is so far from the character and message of Christ. I am proud of this pastor for what he is doing and hope that other pastors will do the same, which includes exposing all the "elephants," including whites against blacks, blacks against whites, Puerto Ricans against Dominicans, the English against the French, and the list goes on.

  3. The church can be the leader in racial reconcilation. That's why I hate the terms black church and white church because we are supposed to be one body. If this is the same Victory World Church near Atlanta they have a racially diverse congregation and Montell Jordan is the worship leader.

    1. Ms. Ann, I was in the audience when that happened and left with mixed feelings. On the one hand as a legal immigrant who agrees with a lot of what Trump stands for but not all, I was sad to hear only 1 side of the conversation. The pastor explained the role of the church with ever so subtle jabs at the right, the conservatives or anyone who listens to fox. His sermon texts were used out of context to fit his narrative and his political leanings were visible as he dealt with a very sensitive topic. I wish he just stuck with the symbolic washing of the feet instead of making it political.
