Knees on a Neck or Knees at the Throne? How Jesus Heals Racism

Knees on a Neck or Knees at the Throne?
How Jesus Heals Racism

Prior to the “guilty” verdict coming out of a Minneapolis court this week, America found itself, once again, sitting on a racial tinderbox, ready to explode!
What was responsible for bringing our nation to this inflection point this week?

Ultimately, it comes down to a KNEE.

In other words, the video of a neck pinned by a knee for over 9 minutes—along with George Floyd’s cries of “Please, I can’t breathe”—visually captured the kind of prejudice, injustice, health disparity, poverty, and plain brutal oppression that countless African Americans experience now and have faced for hundreds of years on every level of life.

Since all of this arises out of the scourge of slavery—”America’s original sin”—on this historic week we ask: Is there any hope of securing a “vaccination” for healing the national plague of racism? Or is the metaphor of a “knee on a neck” meant to remain our destiny?

NO! There is a kneeling that can bring the healing!

In this podcast, David Bryant discusses how our Lord Jesus Christ can take us in a completely new direction—one that makes our nation whole, socially and spiritually!

Listen and be inspired!
