In Reply to a Beloved Brother Regarding the Kavanaugh SCOTUS Nomination

John C. Richards, Jr., a self-described "Christian person of color," is expressing concern over the potential impacts the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. His dissatisfaction with Kavanaugh's nomination seems to be proffered in such a way as to suggest that black Christians are, or should be, primarily, if not solely, concerned about matters that subjectively fall under the ever-expanding and ambiguous banner of "social justice."

The Misleading Language of the Social Justice Movement

For the only way to objectively determine if this multiethnic vision that the 11 o'clock hour on Sunday morning no longer remains "the most segregated hour in America", if that's the case at all, is by visually observing and monitoring how many people of varying shades of melanin are occupying the pews on any given Sunday morning.

What's Wrong With Being a White Evangelical?

There is a sense today in which the word evangelical has become something of an ethnic pejorative within the church in America. Needless to say, this ought not to be the case among those who confess the name of Christ (1 Thess. 4:9). As sinful as it is to discriminate against one of God's image bearers on the basis of his or her ethnicity, it is no less sinful to misconstrue or misapply an aspect of one's identity as a Christian to advance or promote a particular ideological narrative or agenda.

Looking for a 'Social Savior'

As I continue to scan the landscape of social justice-labeled activities that are said to be carried out "in the name of" Christ, I've noticed many Christian activists have a tendency to proffer to the world an image of Jesus that is tantamount to that of a sanctified social worker, a holy humanitarian, an exalted egalitarian.
