It’s a privilege to think that you can “just preach the gospel” in the midst of injustices perpetuated in and out of the church.

Privilege means you can afford not to talk about issues that affect the body of Christ because it doesn’t affect you or people who look like you. However, as Christians we ought not just speak up when it affects our own - this is the way of the world.

Though we give special care to those in the household of God, we also care for every person as they bear God’s image and are our neighbor as seen in the Good Samaritan.

The reality is, the vast majority of Americans (which includes Christians) never encounter refugees, let alone ever share even a meal with them.

Yet, they villainize people desperately in need of a home and celebrate exclusionary practices against the most vulnerable. No Christian I know who is advocating for the acceptance of refugees is advocating for open borders. It’s a red herring argument of those who don’t understand that the vetting process for refugees in the U.S. is extremely thorough.

10 reasons why you should go watch @CrazyRichMovie today:

1) It’s entertaining. From beginning to end, you laugh, you cry, and you feel all warm inside.

2) It shows the tensions of being an Asian American in Asia. Asian Americans exist in a liminal, in between, space. 3) It shows a variety of masculinities that exists among Asian/Asian American men. One of the most common portrayals of Asian men is that they are effeminate, creating a false impression that paints a monolithic stereotype.

Evangelical Christians need to determine whether addressing issues of racial justice is Biblical or not. It should be embarrassing that we don't seem to have a consensus on this.

The fact that John MacArthur didn't want to host a @TGC regional conference at his church is sad. Christians are either for racial justice or against it. There is no middle ground on this.

Generational excuses do not fly in the eyes of discipleship. Where in the Bible do people get a pass for neglecting God's Word for being from an older generation? Answer: Nowhere.
