Black Lives Matter Movement Condemned by Southern Evangelical Seminary

US

This past week, Southern Evangelical Seminary released a statement outlining their stance on the Black Lives Matter movement and the current issues of racism and social injustice. "Southern Evangelical Seminary and Bible College (SES) stands for the inherent value of all human life (Gen. 1:27) and against racism in all its insidious forms (Zech. 7:10; Prov. 28:16; Acts 10:34-35; Gal. 3:28) while also acknowledging that some professing Christians throughout the church's history have attempted to hijack the Gospel message for racist causes." While SES does adhere to the idea that "black lives matter," they do so only under the umbrella of the idea that "all human lives are sacred." Furthermore, SES stated that "[The] BLM organization, and many of its related positions, are explicitly anti-Christian... Holding to mis-defined notions of love, freedom, and justice, BLM stands against the nuclear family, promotes homosexual and transgender ideologies, and is an admittedly Marxist organization."READ MORE

John Piper

John Piper describes how Christians can discern and apply the Will of God

Ministries

Christianity, born thousands of years ago, can at times seem an antiquated religion. In today's modern age, in which the sky no longer limits us, and the complexities of life entangle our souls, it is ever more difficult to decipher God's plan for us. However, Pastor John Piper presents us with an astute insight into how we can continue to recognize and apply God's volition to our daily lives. Piper asks us to turn to Romans 12:1-2 to discern God's intentions for us Christians, which read: "I appeal to you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect."READ MORE
