SUMMARY: Biola professor Joe Hellerman sees three problems when an all lives matter slogan or variation on that theme is used to counter a black lives matter statement. One problem is that social context means something.

KEY QUOTE: “Before white evangelicals can authentically declare to marginalized people groups that Jesus died for all, that all lives matter, that the ground is level at the foot of the cross, we will need first to (a) acknowledge the social injustices of the world in which we live, (b) hear the experiences of our black brothers and sisters in Christ, and (c) do what we can to address these issues in both public and private settings.”
