Linking you to the top 5 Christian blog posts of the week—posts that provide robust, rich, and relevant insights for living.
How Dare You!
Pastor Thabiti Anyabwile speaks the truth in love as he shares his convictions about white Evangelicals comparing abortion to slavery. His main thesis: As a white person, don’t make that comparison with a black audience unless you first demonstrate empathy over the horrors of slavery. I’ve made that comparison before and I am sure I will again, and I trust it has always been done with empathy and sensitivity. While I wouldn’t word everything the same as Pastor Anyabwile did in his post, I do think it is great food for thought. See what you think as you read Yes, How Dare You Compare Abortion to Slavery!?
