A Cause Greater Than a Flag

June 27, 2015 1 Comment


I am literally sick over the ongoing racial debates on social media. Just a few weeks ago it was the issue in McKinney and now the Confederate flag. Like the Bible, people find it easy to cherry pick history to prove their point. However, it is unlikely you will change someone’s mind or their heart. The only thing that happens is a wedge is driven deeper between the races. It does not lead to unity but to division.

I love my country (it is far from perfect) but at the end of the day my only allegiance is to Christ. He has called me to die to my own desires and agendas. My ability and call to share the love of Christ is greater than to win a debate. It is greater than the need to prove my point as right. As long as we focus on these temporal issues satan will sit back and laugh at our folly. Only Christ can change a person’s heart so let our energies be spent making disciples.

To have lawsuits at all with one another is already a defeat for you. Why not rather suffer wrong? Why not rather be defrauded? 1 Corinthians 6:7 (ESV)
