Too often we Americans get so caught up in our own affairs that it is easy to forget that the church is not American. It is not even Western. It is global.
Are we talking about God, or are we talking about the things of this world? We like to dress up our discussion of worldly things in "christianese."
The fact that perplexes me, however, is that those who are speaking against injustice use the phrase "Black Lives Matter" as their slogan. It perplexes me that so many people can be so blatantly hypocritical.
Thankfully, our Captain is no mere man, but the Lord Jesus Christ; and He has left us with words of comfort and hope that are beyond any circumstance of this world.
