Scripture: Amos 5:21-27

A Biblical Summary Regarding the Gospel and Race

1. ALL people are created equal by God. Therefore, racism exists because biblical anthropology doesn’t.

2. Looking down on anyone because of their race is always sinful. Therefore, sin demands turning to Jesus for forgiveness and grace.

3. Because the Church has Christ, through his Spirit, we (re)embrace a biblical anthropology and identify those things (e.g. money, sex, power, control, advantage, policy, etc.) used to perpetuate inequalities in our world.
