The Silence of Evangelical White Churches and White Christians!

The Silence of Evangelical White Churches and White Christians!

What puzzles me the most is the “intentional silence” of most White Christians and White Evangelical Churches!

1. In the time of slavery and slave trades, most white churches and white Christians in America were silent.

2. In the era of black lynching, most white churches and white Christians in America were silent.

3. In the period of racial segregation, most white churches and white Christians in America were again silent.

4. In contemporary times of Police brutality and black death, American Evangelical White Christians and White Churches still maintain their silence.

When will White Evangelical Churches and White Christians call evil evil?

When will White Evangelical Churches and White Christians call injustice injustice?

When will White Evangelical Churches and White Christians call wrong wrong?

What good are White Evangelical Christianity and White churches in America in this time of national crisis and black death!

Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of falsehood,
who draw sin as with cart ropes,
who say: “Let him be quick,
let him speed his work
that we may see it;
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
and shrewd in their own sight!
Woe to those who acquit the guilty for a bribe,
and deprive the innocent of his right!”—Isaiah 5:18-23
