Dr. Chris Green, Professor of Theology at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida, talks with us about with issue of racism and how we are to respond to it as followers of Jesus. The problem of racism is built on the lie of superiority which permeates most of the distinctions we make between "us" and "them." But we read in Colossians that Jesus has overcome and destroyed these distinctions. "Christ is all and in all." As a people of faith, we've done a good job of putting away unrighteousness or doing away with wrongdoing, and some of us show mercy to those impacted by racism. But mercy will never change the injustice of racism. We have to do justice, and that responsibility rests with those with the power. Colossians 3:9-11; Colossians 3:5, 12-14, 22.
