SUMMARY: Pastor Rasool Berry (The Bridge Church | Brooklyn, NY) provides answers to common critiques about the church being involved in justice and partnering with non-Christian causes. He adeptly points out that some churches have always been involved in justice and the many ways in which we use secular theories, but reject the parts that don’t align with our faith. He concludes his 9-minute talk with what we can do about it.
KEY QUOTES: “Why is that when we see Creator in the Declaration (of Independence) we can say, ‘Well, we know what Thomas Jefferson meant as a deist, but what I mean is the God of the Bible.’ But when it comes to saying Black Lives Matter we must mean everything that the people who initially coined the term meant by it.”
