Can't Take Our Heritage Away!

In a recent update of the fundraising portion for my new book, "Ministering Effectively"
I reminded the audience that our heritage in Christ and in church could not be simply taken away and done away with as the secular left has seemingly proposed. 

My reason for saying this, is because as we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday we are reminded that the tribute to him erected in Washington, DC. in 2011 included everything BUT his heritage and the real reason that he engaged the civil rights struggle as he did. 

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial
To be clear, there is NO REFERENCE to Dr. King as being a "Pastor", a "Servant Of Jesus Christ", or one who "Served God". There is not even a reference to scripture or the bible as being the guide or motive for his efforts in the movement. Also, one only need to look at the title of the memorial, "Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial" to see that even his title "Dr." has been taken away by the liberal elite under a liberal Black President. 

In their efforts to not "offend" and to be so inclusive, as their necessary condition is these days, those who created the memorial, and those who approved it (which include some of Dr. King's own family members) took the ultimate step to rewrite history, and only acknowledge the portions of history that they agree with and to offend the very un-enigmatic roots and source for the strength of Dr. King during the struggle.  

This is a SAD shame on America and upon every person of color in America who has endured unfair and unequal treatment based on race or ethnic background. This is a SAD shame upon America to realize that in a memorial that addresses so called "civil rights" that religious rights and freedoms are clearly struck down as being insignificant and are under attack. 


This is what I said in the new note:
Can't Take Our Heritage Away!

Interestingly, there is overwhelming historical evidence that the modern civil rights and social justice movements were birthed out of the church. In fact, if we look at positive change that occurs in the world, overwhelmingly the church is at the center of things and the place where ideas are transformed into action.

As we celebrate another Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Day, let us be reminded that secular society, while attempting to honor him, has tried to strip his memory of his heritage, within the church and God.

Although the highly controversial monument was erected in Dr. Martin Luther King's honor in 2011 without a SINGLE reference to Jesus Christ and or scripture, we know that without Pastor King's desire to serve both his God and his community, that Black and poor minorities would continue to be trivialized in their plight for change.

"Ministering Effectively" is looking beyond self, self desires and needs, and refusing to adjust to the "status quo". That is what those that truly serve HIM do!

Your gifts towards this book helps send the message out to countless millions that we CAN overcome anything with Jesus and that each individual can bring change to their community.

How many Dr. King's are there out there? How many of us are willing and ready to "Minister Effectively" to our Christ KING? 
May the Lord continue to bless you this Pastor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Thank you for your prayers and your contributions!
The critic can say what they wish, but those who believe in and are confident of the truth clearly and unobtrusively know that the fight for social justice, liberation, and freedom, even freedom from slavery was birthed out of the church and because of the Bible and its teachings on the same issues of liberation. 

Conclusion

My son recently told me of a conversation in which a person said that they didn't believe in the bible because it endorsed slavery and that most slave traders in American history used the Bible to affirm their racist beliefs.


I responded by pointing out and saying this...
"Are we as confident that the slave traders did what they did because they believed in the Bible, or because they were White and sinners who felt that they could do it? History affirms that the only reason that slave trading was challenged as an acceptable practice, was not because of some secular and materialistic paradigm (survival of the fittest certainly endorses slavery) but it was because of the biblical paradigm and world view that men, some even slave traders themselves, could no longer give themselves to an institution that was so diabolically against love, humanity and all the good and moral things that humans embrace. We know from history that it was because of the Bible that abolitionists fought against slavery. So are we really as confident that folk believed in slavery because of the bible? I think not! Slavery was always a product of elitism. What the Bible calls a "proud look" which is a sin. Money and the love of money was at its heart, which the bible condemns as a moral ethic in the service of humanity. So it can hardly be said that slavery was a product of the Bible and or God when everything that slavery represented was opposed to him. So ask the question again, was it mostly because of the Bible or because some were White and sinners? We are confident that slavery as an institution was condemned because of the Bible and belief in God, but less confident of the alternate." 

"Amazing Grace!" Men find liberation in the cross and as we celebrate Pastor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, let us remember that the cross can do for us what noone is able to do...save our souls and deliver us from SIN and unrighteousness!


Blessed!

Islam, Submission With No Peace Pt. 13 ~ Christian Liberalism

Recently, Wheaton College Professor Dr. Larycia Hawkins gained national attention when she was placed on administrative leave by Provost Stan Jones. It has been reported that Dr. Hawkins troubles began when she decided to wear a hijab, a garment associated with religious Muslim women, to show her solidarity with Muslim women, a class of persons whom she felt were being marginalized and ridiculed within American society, in particularly because of recent terrorist attacks within the United States, said to have been inspired by ISIS.

Dr. Hawkins explained her actions in her Facebook POST as follows: 
“I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book. And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”
She further stated:
"As part of my Advent Worship, I will wear the hijab to work at Wheaton College, to play in Chi-town, in the airport and on the airplane to my home state that initiated one of the first anti-Sharia laws (read: unconstitutional and Islamophobic), and at church."
In her recent press conference on this issue, (see video at the end of this article) she stated:
"Our love for Jesus compels us to make no peace with oppression because Christianity is political or it is not Christianity. That drove my solidarity with women in the hijab, particularly Muslims in the hijab—because you know, Jesus’ mother Mary wore a hijab too."
She went on to state:
"Throughout my years of service at Wheaton College, I have never waivered from my commitment to the Christian doctrines elucidated in the Statement of Faith."
Distinguishing & Differentiating Issues

I would be the first to say that I do not know anything about Dr. Hawkins employment
agreement with Wheaton College or about any reason or right that her employer may have had to monitor Dr. Hawkins' Facebook account. While I would support Dr. Hawkins' right to free speech and to privacy, I must point out that it also seems appropriate that Dr. Hawkins, if she has agreed to a statement of faith, or to certain Christian centered doctrines and teachings, that she be faithful to those teachings even in her private life. This is especially important as she is not only a representative of the college, but more importantly of Christ.   

The media has focused its attention on the Dr.'s freedom and right of expression. However, the primary issue, as I have examined this case and the statements, are clearly her assertion that Muslims (who she sought to encourage) and Christians, worship "the same God". To be fair, Dr. Hawkins was not asserting these ideas independently. Her statements echo those of Pope Francis' who also recently affirmed that both Christians and Muslims worship "the same God".

The issues seem to have been convoluted or intertwined, until the person casually associated with religious doctrines and tenets of faith, assume that the only issue is the wearing of the hijab. In fact in Dr. Hawkins' statement and press conference, this is the primary and initial point of focus. Her theological assertion is downplayed, but I believe that her theological position is the primary, if not the only issue at hand, as you will see in this post.
