Clergy putting faith in a man and not in Christ?
Hope being placed in a human being – any human being – even a president, is hope misplaced. As a Christian I can state with affirmation that hope exists in the person of Jesus Christ.
It’s a message the church has neglected to preach – and it’s a message
that is needed as much today as it was back in 1860. The clergy is
supposed to understand that message. But when asked about how to solve
the problems the black community is facing, I’ve never heard any
preacher say that the power to change and the power to clean one’s
proverbial slate is possible. It’s the message of redemption that only
Christ offers – it’s the “good news” or the gospel. You can be a new
creature in Christ. Where hope exists, hate can be overcome.
The Bible also teaches that there should be no division between us.
And it teaches that we are to forgive those who wrong us. It doesn’t
teach that we are supposed to hold a grudge against one generation for
the sins of another. There can be no healing in this country unless we
acknowledge our national sins and forgiveness is preached. Then and only
then can people rise up against poor circumstances and be all God would
have them be.
So how about it? Are clergy putting too much emphasis in a man and not on God?
