  • ADDRESS WHY WE ARE BACK HERE, WE

  • NEVER REALLY DEALT WITH THE
  • 00:04:43.200 --> 00:04:46.130
  • ISSUE OF RACISM.
  • 00:04:46.130 --> 00:04:48.270
  • WE SWEPT IT UNDER THE RUG AFTER
  • 00:04:48.270 --> 00:04:51.240
  • MY FATHER'S ASSASSINATION.
  • 00:04:52.210 --> 00:04:55.210
  • PEOPLE THOUGHT ALL IS WELL.
  • 00:04:55.210 --> 00:04:57.050
  • WE KEPT MOVING FORWARD.
  • 00:04:57.260 --> 00:05:00.280
  • WHEN AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:01.250
  • PRESIDENT WAS ELECTED PEOPLE
  • 00:05:01.250 --> 00:05:03.270
  • THOUGHT WE ENTERED A POST RACISM
  • 00:05:04.220 --> 00:05:07.220
  • AMERICA, IT WAS A LIE FROM THE
  • 00:05:07.220 --> 00:05:09.170
  • PIT OF HELL.
  • 00:05:09.170 --> 00:05:10.240
  • IN THE PROCESS OF THAT TIME
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:13.000
  • PERIOD, UNFORTUNATELY, THE
  • 00:05:13.000 --> 00:05:15.170
  • CHURCH HAS BEEN SILENT.
  • 00:05:15.170 --> 00:05:18.010
  • IN FACT, THE CHURCH WAS VERY
  • 00:05:18.010 --> 00:05:20.110
  • SILENT DURING MY FATHER'S TIME.
  • 00:05:20.110 --> 00:05:22.230
  • THAT WAS HIS NUMBER ONE ISSUE,
  • 00:05:22.230 --> 00:05:25.070
  • IS THAT THE MODERATE AT THAT
  • 00:05:25.070 --> 00:05:26.260
  • TIME HE CALLED THE MODERATE
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:31.280
  • WHITE CHRISTIAN WHO WOULD NOT
  • 00:05:31.280 --> 00:05:33.220
  • GET INVOLVED IN THE STRUGGLE HE
  • 00:05:33.220 --> 00:05:36.060
  • WAS IN DURING THE 50'S AND 60'S.
  • 00:05:36.120 --> 00:05:39.120
  • SO SINCE THAT TIME, YOU STILL
  • 00:05:40.200 --> 00:05:43.200
  • HAVE THE ACTION ABSENCE OF THEE
  • 00:05:50.190 --> 00:05:53.190
  • RIGHT AND THE CHURCH FOR THE
  • 00:05:53.190 --> 00:05:55.130
  • MOST PART.
  • 00:05:55.130 --> 00:05:56.220
  • HE SAID THE CHILDREN AR OF DARKS
  • 00:06:00.260 --> 00:06:03.260
  • ARE MORE ZEALOUS THAN THE
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:05.120
  • CHILDREN OF LIGHT.
  • 00:06:05.120 --> 00:06:06.090
  • I BELIEVE GOD ALLOWED THIS
  • 00:06:06.090 --> 00:06:07.280
  • SEASON TO REALLY NOT ONLY WAKE
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:10.060
  • UP THE CHURCH, BUT POSITION THE
  • 00:06:10.140 --> 00:06:13.140
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:13.240
  • AND IF WE DON'T ATTACK ADVANTAGE
  • 00:06:14.260 --> 00:06:17.260
  • OF THIS HOUR WE WILL BE
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:20.240
  • DISMISSED AS IRRELEVANT AND
  • 00:06:20.240 --> 00:06:23.240
  • UNNECESSARY.
  • 00:06:23.240 --> 00:06:24.060
  • - PASTOR MIKE, WHY ARE WE HERE?
  • 00:06:24.060 --> 00:06:26.240
  • - THINK ABOUT THIS, SAM, IT IS
  • 00:06:26.240 --> 00:06:28.210
  • AN HONOR TO BE HERE AT THE KING
  • 00:06:28.210 --> 00:06:31.030
  • CENTER.
  • 00:06:31.030 --> 00:06:31.130
  • IT IS AN AMAZING PLACE.
  • 00:06:31.130 --> 00:06:33.200
  • AN AMAZING LEGACY TO YOUR FATHER
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:35.100
  • AND TO HIS THEN.
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:38.010
  • YOUR QUESTION, SAM, IS WHY ARE
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:40.050
  • WE BACK HERE NOW?
  • 00:06:40.050 --> 00:06:41.270
  • IF I COULD PUSH THE DIALOGUE A
  • 00:06:41.270 --> 00:06:43.290
  • LITTLE BIT AND SAY I THINK THE
  • 00:06:43.290 --> 00:06:46.070
  • REASON, I WILL FOLLOW WITH WHAT
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:49.150
  • DR. KING SAID, YOU CANNOT TBAND
  • 00:06:49.150 --> 00:06:51.260
  • AID BAND-AID UP A REAL PROBLEM.
  • 00:06:53.010 --> 00:06:56.010
  • THIS IS MY OPINION.
  • 00:06:56.010 --> 00:06:58.020
  • DR. KING WAS A PASTOR, FIRST AND
  • 00:06:58.020 --> 00:07:00.110
  • FOREMOST.
  • 00:07:00.110 --> 00:07:00.220
  • AS A PASTOR, GOD RAISED HIM UP
  • 00:07:00.220 --> 00:07:02.240
  • WITH A MESSAGE IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:05.040
  • THE CHURCH DID NOT REALLY HEAR
  • 00:07:05.040 --> 00:07:06.230
  • THE MESSAGE, SO HE WENT TO
  • 00:07:08.010 --> 00:07:11.010
  • WASHINGTON, HAD A MARCH.
  • 00:07:11.010 --> 00:07:12.140
  • MADE A GREAT SPEECH.
  • 00:07:12.140 --> 00:07:15.020
  • GOVERNMENT EMBRACED HIM.
  • 00:07:15.020 --> 00:07:17.020
  • THEY STARTED CHANGING LAWS, YOU
  • 00:07:17.020 --> 00:07:19.070
  • CANNOT FORCE LAWS.
  • 00:07:19.070 --> 00:07:21.150
  • THEY INTEGRATED SCHOOLS AND THEY
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:23.090
  • CHANGED CORPORATIONS AND THEY
  • 00:07:23.090 --> 00:07:25.050
  • DEALT WITH THE MILITARY AND THEN
  • 00:07:25.050 --> 00:07:28.040
  • WE THOUGHT IT IS DEALT WITH.
  • 00:07:28.040 --> 00:07:30.000
  • BUT THERE IS ONE HUGE MISSING
  • 00:07:30.090 --> 00:07:33.090
  • PIECE TO THAT PUZZLE, IT WAS
  • 00:07:33.090 --> 00:07:36.060
  • NEVER DEALT WITH IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:07:36.060 --> 00:07:38.160
  • I THINK GOD HAS ALLOWED THIS TO
  • 00:07:38.160 --> 00:07:40.210
  • COME BACK UM TO S BACK UP TO SA,
  • 00:07:42.070 --> 00:07:45.070
  • YOU OUGHT TO BE STRONG ENOUGH
  • 00:07:45.070 --> 00:07:47.250
  • AND HAVE ENOUGH UNITY AND HAVE
  • 00:07:48.140 --> 00:07:51.140
  • ENOUGH UNDERSTANDING NOW DEAL
  • 00:07:51.140 --> 00:07:53.030
  • WITH THIS FOR REAL.
  • 00:07:53.030 --> 00:07:54.120
  • THAT IS WE ARE ARE.
  • 00:07:54.120 --> 00:07:56.100
  • - IT IS 57 YEARS LATER AND HERE
  • 00:07:57.200 --> 00:08:00.220
  • WE ARE.
  • 00:08:00.220 --> 00:08:01.280
  • I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO SEE
  • 00:08:02.220 --> 00:08:05.220
  • DR. KING'S DREAM A REALITY IN MY
  • 00:08:05.220 --> 00:08:08.220
  • GENERATION.
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:09.040
  • I LOOK AT MY KIDS HAVING TO

  • 00:08:11.030 --> 00:08:13.200
  • ARE BACK.
  • 00:08:13.200 --> 00:08:14.100
  • IT IS ALL BECAUSE A DIVIDED
  • 00:08:14.130 --> 00:08:17.130
  • CHURCH WILL NEVER HEAL A BROKEN
  • 00:08:17.130 --> 00:08:19.080
  • NATION.
  • 00:08:19.080 --> 00:08:19.180
  • WE HAVE STORIES YOU WILL HEAR
  • 00:08:19.180 --> 00:08:21.030
  • FROM PASTORS AND LEADERS WHO
  • 00:08:21.030 --> 00:08:23.240
  • EXPERIENCED FIRST-HAND NOT 56
  • 00:08:23.240 --> 00:08:25.080
  • YEARS AGO BUT RECENTLY
  • 00:08:25.180 --> 00:08:28.180
  • ENCOUNTERS WITH THE DEVIL IN THE
  • 00:08:28.180 --> 00:08:31.100
  • SUIT OF RACISM.
  • 00:08:31.100 --> 00:08:33.140
  • WE MUST CALL IT BY NAME.
  • 00:08:33.140 --> 00:08:35.220
  • RACISM.

  • 00:16:50.150 --> 00:16:51.290
  • HE WANTED TO HAVE A VICTORY WITH
  • 00:16:52.030 --> 00:16:55.030
  • HIS MEER ARMY OVER HIS
  • 00:16:55.290 --> 00:16:58.290
  • BROTHER-IN-LAW.
  • 00:16:58.290 --> 00:16:59.130
  • HE HAD A CHRISTIAN CONVERSION.
  • 00:16:59.130 --> 00:17:01.040
  • I DON'T BELIEVE IN IT AT ALL.
  • 00:17:01.040 --> 00:17:03.200
  • CONSTANTINE CALLS A DELEGATION
  • 00:17:03.200 --> 00:17:06.070
  • OF BISHOPS FOR THE CHURCH IN 325
  • 00:17:08.100 --> 00:17:11.100
  • A.D. TO SORT OUT ISSUES SORTING
  • 00:17:11.130 --> 00:17:14.130
  • OUT THE GODHEAD AND TRINITY AND
  • 00:17:14.160 --> 00:17:17.160
  • BAPTISM IN THE EARLY CHURCH.
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:19.010
  • WATCH THIS, THE CHURCH WAS BORN
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:20.260
  • IN THE BOOK OF ACTS WITH ALL
  • 00:17:21.090 --> 00:17:24.090
  • JEWISH APOSTLES.
  • 00:17:24.090 --> 00:17:25.050
  • THE WORLD WAS BEING REAPED BY
  • 00:17:25.080 --> 00:17:28.080
  • ALL JEWISH MISSIONARIES, NOW IT
  • 00:17:29.050 --> 00:17:32.050
  • IS 325 A.D. CONSTANTINE BECAME A
  • 00:17:32.050 --> 00:17:34.170
  • CHRISTIAN NOW HE IS HEAD OF THE
  • 00:17:34.170 --> 00:17:36.070
  • CHURCH AS THE HEAD OF THE ROMAN
  • 00:17:36.070 --> 00:17:38.090
  • EMPIRE.
  • 00:17:38.090 --> 00:17:38.190
  • HE CALLED THE DELEGATION, THEY
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:41.180
  • HAVE THE NICENE COUNCIL MADE UP
  • 00:17:42.260 --> 00:17:45.260
  • OF 318 BISHOPS INVITED BY THE
  • 00:17:46.110 --> 00:17:49.110
  • CAESAR.
  • 00:17:49.110 --> 00:17:49.240
  • NOT ONE JEW AMONG THEM.
  • 00:17:50.210 --> 00:17:53.210
  • SO SUDDENLY THE GENTILE CHURCH
  • 00:17:53.210 --> 00:17:56.020
  • TOOK OVER THE LEADERSHIP OF THE
  • 00:17:56.020 --> 00:17:57.290
  • CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND OUT OF THAT
  • 00:17:57.290 --> 00:18:00.090
  • MEETING THEN CONSTANTINE MAKES A
  • 00:18:00.090 --> 00:18:03.060
  • DECREE, WATCH THIS, JEWS ARE
  • 00:18:03.250 --> 00:18:06.250
  • LESSER HUMAN BEINGS, THEY SHOULD
  • 00:18:06.250 --> 00:18:09.240
  • BE ERADICATED FROM THE ROMAN
  • 00:18:09.240 --> 00:18:12.160
  • EMPIRE, WE SHOULD BURN THEIR
  • 00:18:12.160 --> 00:18:14.230
  • SYNAGOGUES AND BOOKS AND RUN
  • 00:18:14.230 --> 00:18:15.270
  • THEM FROM THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:18:15.270 --> 00:18:17.110
  • THIS IS WHAT IS FRIGHTENING,
  • 00:18:17.110 --> 00:18:19.150
  • SAM.
  • 00:18:19.150 --> 00:18:20.010
  • I CAN TRACE THAT TRAIL FROM
  • 00:18:21.060 --> 00:18:24.060
  • CONSTANTINE IN THE 4TH CENTURY
  • 00:18:24.060 --> 00:18:25.270
  • TO LUTER LUTHER IN 15TH CENTUR.
  • 00:18:28.020 --> 00:18:31.020
  • HE WAS A REFORMER WITH A DARK
  • 00:18:31.020 --> 00:18:33.130
  • SIDE.
  • 00:18:33.130 --> 00:18:33.240
  • HE WROTE A BOOK HOW TO ERADICATE
  • 00:18:33.240 --> 00:18:36.090
  • THE JEWS FROM GERMANY, 300 YEARS
  • 00:18:36.150 --> 00:18:39.150
  • LATER QUOTED VERBATIM BY A MAN
  • 00:18:39.150 --> 00:18:42.010
  • WE ALL KNOW NAMED ADOLP ADOLPH .
  • 00:18:43.140 --> 00:18:46.140
  • HE JUSTIFIEDED ERADICATING JEWS
  • 00:18:46.140 --> 00:18:49.130
  • FROM GERMANY BY QUOTING
  • 00:18:49.130 --> 00:18:51.200
  • CHRISTIAN LEADERS.
  • 00:18:51.200 --> 00:18:53.050
  • WE HAVE BEEN GOOD AT RACISM FOR
  • 00:18:53.270 --> 00:18:56.270
  • YEARS.
  • 00:18:56.270 --> 00:18:58.060
  • SAM, I FEEL SO BROKEN ABOUT THIS
  • 00:18:58.060 --> 00:19:00.250
  • RIGHT NOW I CAN HARDLY TALK.
  • 00:19:00.250 --> 00:19:03.060
  • BECAUSE IF WE CAN EVER JUSTIFY
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:05.220
  • IN OUR MIND, ESPECIALLY WHEN WE
  • 00:19:06.110 --> 00:19:09.110
  • SAY JESUS AND BELIEVE THE BIBLE
  • 00:19:09.110 --> 00:19:10.260
  • AND WE LIVE HOLY LIVES, IF WE
  • 00:19:10.260 --> 00:19:13.140
  • CAN LEARN HOW TO JUSTIFY,
  • 00:19:13.240 --> 00:19:16.240
  • ACTUALLY BELIEVING THAT ANOTHER
  • 00:19:16.240 --> 00:19:19.140
  • HUMAN BEING IS SOMEHOW LESSER
  • 00:19:19.140 --> 00:19:21.140
  • THAN WE ARE, THE THEN WE CAN JUY
  • 00:19:22.230 --> 00:19:25.230
  • ANYTHING.
  • 00:19:25.230 --> 00:19:26.040
  • SO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO IS HAVE
  • 00:19:26.040 --> 00:19:28.170
  • ANOTHER VISIT TO THE CROSS.
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:32.260
  • NO ONE IS INFERIOR.
  • 00:19:32.260 --> 00:19:34.110
  • WE ARE ALL HIS CHILDREN.
  • 00:19:34.110 --> 00:19:36.100
  • AND WHEREVER WE MADE THE MISTAKE
  • 00:19:37.120 --> 00:19:40.120
  • AND WHEREVER THE FORK IN THE
  • 00:19:40.120 --> 00:19:42.000
  • ROAD WAS, WE HAVE TO GET BACK TO
  • 00:19:42.000 --> 00:19:44.290
  • THAT PLACE AND REPENT OF OUR
  • 00:19:46.050 --> 00:19:49.050
  • AUDACITY DECEPTION AND
  • 00:19:49.050 --> 00:19:51.060
  • FOOLISHNESS AND LOVE ONE
  • 00:19:51.060 --> 00:19:52.140
  • ANOTHER.
  • 00:19:52.140 --> 00:19:52.240
  • THAT SOUNDS LIKE AN OVER
  • 00:19:52.240 --> 00:19:54.200
  • SIMPLIFIED STATEMENT.
  • 00:19:54.200 --> 00:19:56.090
  • JUST LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:19:56.090 --> 00:19:57.110
  • HERE IS THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:19:57.110 --> 00:19:58.290
  • WHEN YOU ARE PART OF THE ROOTS
  • 00:20:02.220 --> 00:20:05.220
  • OF AN OPPRESSIVE RACE, AND YOU
  • 00:20:05.220 --> 00:20:07.220
  • WERE NOT THE OPPRESSED, BUT YOU
  • 00:20:07.220 --> 00:20:10.110
  • CAME FROM THE OPPRESSORS, I
  • 00:20:10.230 --> 00:20:13.230
  • NEVER PLEERN PERSONALLY BEEN ORE
  • 00:20:15.170 --> 00:20:18.170
  • THAT BUT I HAD TO HAVE A HEART
  • 00:20:18.170 --> 00:20:21.110
  • CHANGE TOO BECAUSE I COME FROM
  • 00:20:21.110 --> 00:20:24.040
  • THOSE ROOTS, WHEN YOU HAVE NOT
  • 00:20:24.040 --> 00:20:26.140
  • BEEN STOPPED FOR NO REASON OR
  • 00:20:26.270 --> 00:20:29.270
  • JAILED FOR JUST HAVING LUNCH, IT
  • 00:20:29.270 --> 00:20:32.070
  • IS NOT THAT BIG A DEAL.
  • 00:20:32.070 --> 00:20:34.030
  • I WILL MAKE A POSITIVE
  • 00:20:34.030 --> 00:20:35.210
  • STATEMENT.
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:36.020
  • I KNOW WE WILL TURN THE SHIP
  • 00:20:36.020 --> 00:20:38.260
  • BEFORE LONG BECAUSE THERE IS
  • 00:20:38.260 --> 00:20:40.110
  • GOOD NEWS RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:20:40.110 --> 00:20:42.170
  • GOD IS GIVING US AN OPPORTUNE
  • 00:20:43.110 --> 00:20:46.110
  • TIME.
  • 00:20:46.110 --> 00:20:46.200
  • THIS IS NOT JUST A FAITH
  • 00:20:46.200 --> 00:20:48.250
  • STATEMENT, I BELIEVE IT.
  • 00:20:48.250 --> 00:20:49.210
  • I BELIEVE THE CHURCH AS A WHOLE,
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:53.130
  • BERNICE, IS BETTER EQUIPPED NOW
  • 00:20:53.130 --> 00:20:55.040
  • THAN IN YOUR FATHER'S GENERATION
  • 00:20:55.040 --> 00:20:56.240
  • TO DEAL WITH THIS.
  • 00:20:56.240 --> 00:20:58.040
  • I BELIEVE WE HAVE A MINORITY--
  • 00:20:58.120 --> 00:21:01.140
  • NOT TALKING ABOUT RACIAL
  • 00:21:01.140 --> 00:21:03.260
  • MINORITY, WE HAVE A MINORITY OF
  • 00:21:03.260 --> 00:21:06.170
  • CHRISTIANS THAT DON'T HAVE A
  • 00:21:06.170 --> 00:21:07.230
  • CLUE.
  • 00:21:07.230 --> 00:21:08.020
  • WE HAVE A MINORITY OF CHRISTIANS
  • 00:21:08.020 --> 00:21:10.220
  • OF EVERY RACE SAYING WE ARE NOT
  • 00:21:10.220 --> 00:21:12.180
  • GOING TO ABIDE THIS ANYMORE.
  • 00:21:12.180 --> 00:21:15.090
  • SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE.
  • 00:21:15.090 --> 00:21:17.070
  • THIS IS MY LONG ANSWER TO YOUR
  • 00:21:17.070 --> 00:21:19.050
  • SHORT QUESTION IS, WHITE PEOPLE
  • 00:21:19.050 --> 00:21:21.280
  • HAVE TO DO A LOT MORE.
  • 00:21:23.100 --> 00:21:26.100
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:21:26.100 --> 00:21:27.130
  • - I WANT TO ADD TO WHAT HE IS
  • 00:21:27.130 --> 00:21:29.270
  • SAYING, THIS IS WHERE THE
  • 00:21:29.270 --> 00:21:30.210
  • CHALLENGE IS, I'M WORKING WITH
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:32.290
  • PASTORS IN METROPOLITAN ATLANTA
  • 00:21:33.080 --> 00:21:36.080
  • AREA ON INITIATIVES WHERE WE
  • 00:21:36.080 --> 00:21:38.000
  • BROUGHT TOGETHER PASTORS FROM
  • 00:21:38.000 --> 00:21:40.250
  • MEGACHURCHES, SMALL CHURCHES,
  • 00:21:42.020 --> 00:21:45.020
  • EVANGELICALS, DENOMINATIONAL AND
  • 00:21:45.020 --> 00:21:46.210
  • THE PURPOSE WAS TO BRING THEM
  • 00:21:46.260 --> 00:21:49.260
  • INTO THESE PLACES TO BEGIN TO
  • 00:21:49.260 --> 00:21:51.190
  • GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER.
  • 00:21:51.190 --> 00:21:54.030
  • AROUND THIS WHOLE ISSUE OF
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:56.100
  • RACISM IN OUR SOCIETY.
  • 00:21:56.100 --> 00:21:59.040
  • WHAT WE HAVE DISCOVERED AND
  • 00:21:59.190 --> 00:22:02.210
  • DISCUSSED FOR THOSE THAT ARE
  • 00:22:02.210 --> 00:22:05.040
  • BLACK PASTORS, IS THAT WHITE
  • 00:22:06.190 --> 00:22:09.190
  • PASTORS DON'T GET IT.
  • 00:22:09.190 --> 00:22:11.100
  • AND HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO TO GET
  • 00:22:13.230 --> 00:22:16.230
  • IT.
  • 00:22:16.230 --> 00:22:17.290
  • SO, I KNOW IT SOUNDS STRANGE,
  • 00:22:17.290 --> 00:22:20.100
  • BUT THERE ARE MANY BLACK PASTORS
  • 00:22:22.000 --> 00:22:25.000
  • WHO FEEL THEY ARE NOT QUITE
  • 00:22:25.100 --> 00:22:28.100
  • GETTING IT.
  • 00:22:28.100 --> 00:22:30.290
  • IT IS SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:22:30.290 --> 00:22:33.180
  • IF YOU HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED ALL
  • 00:22:33.180 --> 00:22:35.170
  • THIS, IT IS DIFFICULT TO
  • 00:22:35.170 --> 00:22:37.100
  • UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 00:22:37.100 --> 00:22:38.110
  • IT TAKES A LOT MORE TIME AND A
  • 00:22:38.110 --> 00:22:40.160
  • LOT MORE WORK AND A LOT MORE
  • 00:22:40.160 --> 00:22:42.220
  • LISTENING AND PART OF THE ISSUE,
  • 00:22:44.020 --> 00:22:47.020
  • IT TAKES A LOT OF HUMILITY FOR A
  • 00:22:47.020 --> 00:22:49.290
  • WHITE PASTOR TO SIT UNDER THE
  • 00:22:51.000 --> 00:22:54.000
  • LEADERSHIP OF A BLACK PASTOR.
  • 00:22:56.010 --> 00:22:59.010
  • EVEN IN INITIATIVES WE ARE DOING
  • 00:22:59.010 --> 00:23:00.290
  • NOW.
  • 00:23:00.290 --> 00:23:01.080
  • TO BE ABLE TO SUBMIT TO YOUR
  • 00:23:01.080 --> 00:23:03.170
  • BROTHER AS A BLACK PASTOR OR
  • 00:23:03.170 --> 00:23:05.110
  • SISTER BECAUSE THIS IS MEN AND
  • 00:23:05.110 --> 00:23:06.270
  • WOMEN PASTORS.
  • 00:23:06.270 --> 00:23:09.070
  • IT IS VERY CHALLENGING.
  • 00:23:09.130 --> 00:23:12.130
  • BECAUSE PSYCHOLOGICALLY, WE HAVE
  • 00:23:12.250 --> 00:23:15.250
  • THIS COLLECTIVE CONTENT IN
  • 00:23:15.250 --> 00:23:17.100
  • AMERICA NOT JUST THE WHITE
  • 00:23:17.100 --> 00:23:19.010
  • COMMUNITY SUFFERS FROM WE IN THE
  • 00:23:19.230 --> 00:23:22.230
  • BLACK COMMUNITY SUBCONSCIOUSLY
  • 00:23:22.230 --> 00:23:24.160
  • BELIEVE THAT WHITE IS BETTER.
  • 00:23:26.000 --> 00:23:29.000
  • AND THAT WE ARE INFERIOR.
  • 00:23:29.000 --> 00:23:31.020
  • SO THE POINT IS, ALL WE HAVE
  • 00:23:31.020 --> 00:23:33.170
  • GONE THROUGH AND EXPERIENCED IN
  • 00:23:33.170 --> 00:23:35.290
  • AMERICA, THE TRAUMA HAS TO BE
  • 00:23:35.290 --> 00:23:38.030
  • REAL.
  • 00:23:38.030 --> 00:23:38.120
  • WE HAVE NOT DEALT WITH THE
  • 00:23:38.120 --> 00:23:40.190
  • TRAUMA OF SLAVERY, THE TRAUMA OF
  • 00:23:40.190 --> 00:23:43.130
  • JIM CROWISM AND SEGREGATION AND
  • 00:23:43.130 --> 00:23:45.220
  • THE CURRENT TRAUMA.
  • 00:23:45.220 --> 00:23:47.190
  • ALL OF US ARE VICTIMS.
  • 00:23:47.190 --> 00:23:49.170
  • WE WERE JUST BORN INTO THE
  • 00:23:49.170 --> 00:23:52.120
  • SYSTEM.
  • 00:23:52.120 --> 00:23:52.220
  • EVERY PERSON IN THIS ROOM WAS
  • 00:23:53.080 --> 00:23:56.080
  • BORN INTO THE CLIMATE WHATEVER
  • 00:23:56.080 --> 00:23:58.090
  • AT THE TIME THEY WERE BORN.
  • 00:23:58.090 --> 00:23:59.220
  • THEY DID NOT CREATE IT.
  • 00:24:01.230 --> 00:24:04.230
  • AND SO WE-- THE CHURCH HAS TO
  • 00:24:04.230 --> 00:24:06.130
  • GET THIS RIGHT BECAUSE IT BEGINS
  • 00:24:06.130 --> 00:24:08.030
  • IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD.
  • 00:24:08.030 --> 00:24:10.040
  • - WHAT IS THE ROLE OF THE
  • 00:24:10.040 --> 00:24:11.140
  • CHURCH AND WHETHER OR NOT THE
  • 00:24:11.140 --> 00:24:12.280
  • CHURCH CAN FACILITY IN AN
  • 00:24:12.280 --> 00:24:15.230
  • ATMOSPHERE ENVIRONMENT WHERE
  • 00:24:15.230 --> 00:24:17.260
  • TRAUMA WITH BE HEALED IN OUR
  • 00:24:18.150 --> 00:24:21.150
  • GENERATION?
  • 00:24:21.150 --> 00:24:21.270
  • CAN IT BE HEALED IN OUR
  • 00:24:21.270 --> 00:24:24.020
  • GENERATION?
  • 00:24:24.020 --> 00:24:24.140
  • I WANT TO SEE ONE MORE
  • 00:24:24.140 --> 00:24:26.020
  • NARRATIVE, ONE MORE STORY ONE
  • 00:24:26.020 --> 00:24:27.240
  • CLEAR DEPICTION HOW RACISM STILL
  • 00:24:28.080 --> 00:24:31.080
  • EXISTS IN AMERICA TODAY.
  • 00:24:31.080 --> 00:24:32.170
  • - I WAS PROBABLY 6, 7TH GRADE
  • 00:24:33.070 --> 00:24:36.070
  • WE MOVED INTO A NEIGHBORHOOD
  • 00:24:36.270 --> 00:24:39.270
  • PREDOMINANTLY NONHISPANIC

  • FOUND CHRIST.
  • 00:28:57.280 --> 00:28:59.160
  • THEY STARTED A CHURCH IN

  • NORTHERN ARIZONA.
  • 00:29:01.200 --> 00:29:02.250
  • THEY WERE ALL COAL MINERS IN

  • OHIO AND KENTUCKY.
  • 00:29:05.250 --> 00:29:08.120
  • GOOD PEOPLE, BUT HAD RACIST

  • TENDENCIES, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
  • 00:29:13.150 --> 00:29:15.030
  • THE JOKES WERE AT THE EXPENSE OF
  • 00:29:15.030 --> 00:29:17.260
  • SOME OTHER RACE.

  • - YEAH.
  • 00:29:28.010 --> 00:29:29.250
  • THEY WERE NOT SAVED, AND THEY
  • 00:29:29.280 --> 00:29:32.280
  • GOT SAVED, BUT THEY DID NOT DEAL
  • 00:29:32.280 --> 00:29:35.000
  • WITH THAT.
  • 00:29:35.000 --> 00:29:35.280
  • THAT WAS NOT A SIN.
  • 00:29:35.280 --> 00:29:37.170
  • THAT WAS NOT TAUGHT TO BE DEALT
  • 00:29:37.170 --> 00:29:39.180
  • WITH.
  • 00:29:39.180 --> 00:29:39.280
  • IT WAS NOT PUBLIC.
  • 00:29:39.280 --> 00:29:41.070
  • NO ONE WAS WORSE FOR NOT

  • KNOWING, HERE IS WHAT HAPPENED.
  • 00:29:44.230 --> 00:29:46.120
  • AS I GREW UP, AND THEN STARTED

  • THE CHURCH, AND 30 SOME YEARS
  • 00:29:50.030 --> 00:29:52.250
  • AGO PASTORING THE CHURCH, I HAD
  • 00:29:53.070 --> 00:29:56.070
  • AN UNBELIEVABLE EPIPHANY, IT WAS
  • 00:29:58.120 --> 00:30:01.120
  • UNEXPECTED.
  • 00:30:01.120 --> 00:30:01.240
  • HERE IS THE ISSUE.
  • 00:30:01.240 --> 00:30:02.210
  • HERE IS WHAT ANSWERS YOUR
  • 00:30:02.210 --> 00:30:04.070
  • QUESTION, I HOPE IT HELPS WITH
  • 00:30:04.130 --> 00:30:07.130
  • THIS DISCUSSION.
  • 00:30:07.130 --> 00:30:08.020
  • I HAD A THOUGHT A MINUTE AGO I
  • 00:30:08.020 --> 00:30:10.100
  • NEVER PUT IT IN THESE WORDS, THE
  • 00:30:10.100 --> 00:30:13.040
  • STAGE I FOUND MYSELF AT FIVE
  • 00:30:13.040 --> 00:30:15.210
  • YEARS INTO OUR CHRK CHURCH I LOD
  • 00:30:16.200 --> 00:30:19.200
  • EVERYBODY I DEALT WITH ISSUES IN
  • 00:30:19.200 --> 00:30:21.110
  • MY FAMILY, I CONFRONTED MY
  • 00:30:21.110 --> 00:30:24.030
  • GRANDFATHER ABOUT IT BEFORE HE
  • 00:30:24.030 --> 00:30:26.200
  • PASSED, SO I WAS NOT A HATER.
  • 00:30:26.230 --> 00:30:29.230
  • BUT I WAS NOT YET A HEALER.
  • 00:30:29.230 --> 00:30:32.220
  • AND THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:30:32.220 --> 00:30:34.210
  • I THINK WE HAVE TENS OF
  • 00:30:34.210 --> 00:30:36.140
  • THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS WHO ARE
  • 00:30:36.170 --> 00:30:39.170
  • NOW NOT HATERS BUT THEY ARE NOT
  • 00:30:39.210 --> 00:30:42.210
  • HEALERS.
  • 00:30:42.210 --> 00:30:44.050
  • SO, A VISITING PREACHER CAME TO
  • 00:30:44.050 --> 00:30:46.090
  • OUR CHURCH AND SPOKE.
  • 00:30:47.090 --> 00:30:50.090
  • AND HE WAS A WHITE MAN, IN AN
  • 00:30:50.090 --> 00:30:53.010
  • ATTEMPT TO BE CONCILIATORY HE
  • 00:30:53.010 --> 00:30:55.250
  • MADE A STATEMENT I HEARD BEFORE,
  • 00:30:55.250 --> 00:30:58.180
  • A LOT OF YOU HEARD BEFORE, AND
  • 00:30:58.180 --> 00:31:01.000
  • IN THE MIDST OF HIS MESSAGE HE
  • 00:31:01.000 --> 00:31:03.220
  • MADE THIS STATEMENT.
  • 00:31:03.220 --> 00:31:05.200
  • IN AN EFFORT TO BE RACIALLY
  • 00:31:06.030 --> 00:31:09.030
  • CONCILIATORY, HE SAID IN THE
  • 00:31:09.030 --> 00:31:10.030
  • COURSE OF HIS SERMON, GOD DOES
  • 00:31:10.030 --> 00:31:12.110
  • NOT EVEN SEE COLOR.
  • 00:31:12.110 --> 00:31:14.040
  • GOD LOVES US ALL.
  • 00:31:14.040 --> 00:31:16.150
  • HE DOES NOT SEE COLOR.
  • 00:31:16.180 --> 00:31:19.180
  • SO, IT PASSED.
  • 00:31:19.180 --> 00:31:21.220
  • HE FINISHED HIS MESSAGE.
  • 00:31:21.220 --> 00:31:24.020
  • I FORGET WHAT IT WAS ABOUT.
  • 00:31:24.020 --> 00:31:26.250
  • AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN MAN, WE HAD
  • 00:31:26.250 --> 00:31:28.210
  • A FEW IN THOSE DAYS, WE WERE
  • 00:31:28.280 --> 00:31:31.280
  • REACHING FOR EVERYBODY.
  • 00:31:31.280 --> 00:31:33.210
  • AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN CAME TO ME
  • 00:31:33.210 --> 00:31:35.080
  • AFTER CHURCH, I LED HIM TO THE
  • 00:31:35.230 --> 00:31:38.230
  • LORD, HE LOOKED AT ME, SAM, WITH
  • 00:31:41.050 --> 00:31:44.050
  • AS MUCH PAIN AS I'VE EVER SEEN
  • 00:31:44.050 --> 00:31:46.120
  • IN A MAN'S EYES.
  • 00:31:46.120 --> 00:31:48.090
  • HE SAID, PASTOR MIKE, TELL ME
  • 00:31:48.270 --> 00:31:51.270
  • THAT THE STATEMENT HE MADE TODAY
  • 00:31:52.050 --> 00:31:55.050
  • IS NOT TRUE.
  • 00:31:55.050 --> 00:31:57.150
  • I HEARD A LOT OF STATEMENTS AND
  • 00:31:57.150 --> 00:31:59.100
  • THAT DID NOT STAND OUT TO ME.
  • 00:31:59.100 --> 00:32:01.140
  • I SAID WHAT STATEMENT?
  • 00:32:01.140 --> 00:32:03.140
  • TELL ME IT IS NOT TRUE THAT GOD
  • 00:32:03.240 --> 00:32:06.240
  • DOES NOT EVEN SEE COLOR.
  • 00:32:06.240 --> 00:32:09.100
  • BECAUSE IF HE DOES NOT EVEN SEE
  • 00:32:10.010 --> 00:32:13.010
  • COLOR, WHY DID HE MAKE ME A
  • 00:32:13.010 --> 00:32:15.000
  • BLACK MAN IN AMERICA?
  • 00:32:15.000 --> 00:32:17.290
  • BECAUSE I PUT UP WITH SO MUCH
  • 00:32:18.070 --> 00:32:21.070
  • FOR BEING BLACK IN AMERICA AND
  • 00:32:21.070 --> 00:32:23.290
  • GOD DOES NOT EACH SEE IT.
  • 00:32:23.290 --> 00:32:26.110
  • BUT HE MADE ME THIS WAY.
  • 00:32:27.180 --> 00:32:30.180
  • I PLEDGED TO MYSELF AND TO HIM I
  • 00:32:30.180 --> 00:32:33.130
  • WOULD STUDY THIS ISSUE.
  • 00:32:33.130 --> 00:32:34.220
  • HERE IS WHAT I DID, SAM, I DID A
  • 00:32:35.270 --> 00:32:38.270
  • 3 WEEK SERIES GOD'S PURPOSE FOR
  • 00:32:38.270 --> 00:32:40.210
  • THE NATION.
  • 00:32:40.210 --> 00:32:41.170
  • IN THAT, I STARTED ATTACKING
  • 00:32:42.250 --> 00:32:45.250
  • FALSE DOCTRINES I LEARNED WERE
  • 00:32:45.250 --> 00:32:48.060
  • PREVALENT IN THE CHURCH THE LAST
  • 00:32:48.060 --> 00:32:49.270
  • TWO TO 300 YEARS CREATED
  • 00:32:49.270 --> 00:32:52.260
  • PRIMARILY TO JUSTIFY THE
  • 00:32:52.260 --> 00:32:54.170
  • OWNERSHIP OF SLAVES.
  • 00:32:54.170 --> 00:32:55.190
  • ANY TIME YOU TEACH ERRONEOUS BAD
  • 00:32:56.140 --> 00:32:59.140
  • DOCTRINE IT WILL LEAD TO A BAD
  • 00:32:59.140 --> 00:33:01.210
  • OUTCOME.
  • 00:33:01.210 --> 00:33:03.020
  • SO, I STARTED TO TEACH THESE IN
  • 00:33:03.020 --> 00:33:05.120
  • THIS SERIES.
  • 00:33:05.120 --> 00:33:06.160
  • TWO WEEKS INTO THE SERIES
  • 00:33:07.030 --> 00:33:10.030
  • ARSONISTS SET A FIRE IN MY
  • 00:33:10.030 --> 00:33:11.160
  • OFFICE ON MY DESK AND LIKE A
  • 00:33:11.160 --> 00:33:14.030
  • DIRECT DEMONIC ATTACK, AS IT

  • MY SERIES TO POUR GASOLINE AND
  • 00:33:19.040 --> 00:33:22.040
  • START THE FIRE.
  • 00:33:22.040 --> 00:33:23.180
  • IT BURNED FOUR HOURS IN MY
  • 00:33:23.180 --> 00:33:26.050
  • OFFICE, AT 6 A.M. PEOPLE CAME
  • 00:33:26.180 --> 00:33:29.180
  • FROM EARLY PRAYER CALLED THE

  • FIRE DEPARTMENT WHEN THEY OPENED
  • 00:33:31.250 --> 00:33:34.090
  • THE OFFICE DOOR IT BLEW THEM

  • 12:30 AND 2 A.M.
  • 00:33:40.140 --> 00:33:42.000

  • IT WAS SO HOT, I HAD A SET OF
  • 00:33:45.260 --> 00:33:48.260
  • BRONZE EAGLES HOLDING MY
  • 00:33:49.080 --> 00:33:52.080
  • CO COMMENTARIES IT BURNED THEM
  • 00:33:52.130 --> 00:33:55.130
  • LIKE CANDLE WAX AND STAYED IN
  • 00:33:55.130 --> 00:33:57.280
  • THE OFFICE.
  • 00:33:57.280 --> 00:33:59.060
  • THERE WERE NO ARRESTS, NOTHING
  • 00:33:59.060 --> 00:34:01.070
  • CAME OF THE INVESTIGATION.
  • 00:34:01.070 --> 00:34:03.130
  • NO ONE WAS HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR
  • 00:34:03.130 --> 00:34:06.000
  • THAT.
  • 00:34:06.000 --> 00:34:06.110
  • WORD STARTED TO SPREAD.
  • 00:34:06.110 --> 00:34:07.230
  • OUT OF THAT THERE WAS A
  • 00:34:07.230 --> 00:34:09.220
  • DELIVERANCE.
  • 00:34:09.220 --> 00:34:10.040
  • I CAN ONLY CALL IT THAT FOR OUR
  • 00:34:10.040 --> 00:34:12.160
  • CHURCH.
  • 00:34:12.160 --> 00:34:13.050
  • IT BECAME A STEAM BED FOR
  • 00:34:13.260 --> 00:34:16.260
  • DEALING WITH ISSUES AT THE CORE
  • 00:34:16.260 --> 00:34:19.140
  • AND STRAIGHTENING THAT OUT
  • 00:34:19.140 --> 00:34:20.250
  • WHATEVER IT COSTS AND GAINING A
  • 00:34:21.010 --> 00:34:24.010
  • GENUINE LOVE AND RESPECT FOR ONE
  • 00:34:24.140 --> 00:34:27.140
  • ANOTHER.
  • 00:34:27.140 --> 00:34:27.250
  • BECAUSE THE GOOD NEWS IS, SAM,
  • 00:34:27.250 --> 00:34:30.000
  • THE BLOOD OF JESUS CAN HEAL US
  • 00:34:30.000 --> 00:34:32.200
  • OF ALL THE SIN, HERE IS THE GOOD
  • 00:34:33.250 --> 00:34:36.250
  • NEWS, WE CAN CREATE AN
  • 00:34:36.250 --> 00:34:38.150
  • ENVIRONMENT THAT STARTED VERY
  • 00:34:38.150 --> 00:34:40.060
  • SMALL WITH US 30 SOMETHING YEARS
  • 00:34:40.140 --> 00:34:43.140
  • AGO, DR. KING PREACHED IN

  • COVENANT CHURCH AND EVOLVED TO A
  • 00:34:47.090 --> 00:34:48.280
  • CHURCH THAT CARRIES THOSE
  • 00:34:48.280 --> 00:34:50.140
  • PRINCIPLES TO THE CORE, WE WOULD
  • 00:34:50.140 --> 00:34:52.100
  • GIVE OUR LIVES FOR THESE
  • 00:34:52.100 --> 00:34:54.020
  • PRINCIPLES, IT IS TIME FOR THESE
  • 00:34:54.020 --> 00:34:55.240
  • TO SPREAD SYSTEMICALLY
  • 00:34:55.240 --> 00:34:57.180
  • THROUGHOUT THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:34:57.180 --> 00:34:58.120
  • WE ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES, THIS
  • 00:34:58.120 --> 00:35:00.090
  • IS A GOOD THING.
  • 00:35:00.090 --> 00:35:01.180
  • IT IS HAPPENING A LOT OF PLACES.
  • 00:35:01.180 --> 00:35:03.170
  • WE ARE EQUIPPED BETTER THAN WE
  • 00:35:03.170 --> 00:35:06.040
  • HAVE EVER BEEN.
  • 00:35:06.040 --> 00:35:07.210
  • - IN THE NAME OF JESUS, AMEN.
  • 00:35:10.180 --> 00:35:13.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:35:14.110 --> 00:35:17.110
  • - IT TAKES PEOPLE LIKE HIM
  • 00:35:19.040 --> 00:35:22.040
  • MULTIPLIED TO REACH OUT TO THE
  • 00:35:22.040 --> 00:35:24.210
  • OTHER WHITE PASTORS.
  • 00:35:24.210 --> 00:35:26.120
  • IT IS HARD FOR A BLACK PASTOR TO
  • 00:35:26.120 --> 00:35:28.080
  • DO IT.
  • 00:35:28.080 --> 00:35:29.060
  • IF THERE IS A ROLE THAT WHITE
  • 00:35:29.160 --> 00:35:32.160
  • PASTORS CAN PLAY IN THIS SEASON
  • 00:35:32.160 --> 00:35:35.070
  • THOSE WHO ARE NOT AFRAID, WHEN
  • 00:35:35.070 --> 00:35:37.240
  • YOU ARE JOINED BY TEACHING ABOUT
  • 00:35:37.240 --> 00:35:40.050
  • FALSE ANDO DOCTRINE WE NEED MORF
  • 00:35:41.270 --> 00:35:44.270
  • THAT WE HAVE TO CORRECT FALSE
  • 00:35:44.270 --> 00:35:47.180
  • TEACHINGS.
  • 00:35:47.180 --> 00:35:47.290
  • - I HAVE TO SAY THIS, SAM, THE
  • 00:35:47.290 --> 00:35:50.060
  • REASON IT IS IMPORTANT FOR MORE
  • 00:35:50.060 --> 00:35:52.090
  • WHITE MEN TO SAY IT, IS BECAUSE
  • 00:35:53.090 --> 00:35:56.090
  • IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF SUSPICIOUS
  • 00:35:56.090 --> 00:35:59.060
  • AND CYNICISM AND VITRIOLIC
  • 00:36:00.130 --> 00:36:03.130
  • HATRED WHEN A BLACK MAN SAYS IT,
  • 00:36:03.130 --> 00:36:05.020
  • HE IS JUST COMPLAINING.
  • 00:36:05.020 --> 00:36:07.090
  • WE HEARD THAT BEFORE.
  • 00:36:07.090 --> 00:36:10.020
  • BUT WHEN A WHITE MAN SAYS IT,
  • 00:36:10.020 --> 00:36:13.020
  • HOPEFULLY THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS,
  • 00:36:13.020 --> 00:36:14.240
  • WHAT YOU JUST SAID IS TRUE, MORE
  • 00:36:14.270 --> 00:36:17.270
  • WHITE PASTORS NEED TO SPEAK UP
  • 00:36:19.040 --> 00:36:22.040
  • BECAUSE THEY ARE WHITE.
  • 00:36:22.040 --> 00:36:23.200
  • BECAUSE I THINK THIS IS
  • 00:36:23.200 --> 00:36:24.190
  • SOMETHING THAT WE ARE CAPABLE OF
  • 00:36:24.190 --> 00:36:26.210
  • FIXING, IT IS TIME TO FIX IT.
  • 00:36:26.210 --> 00:36:29.130
  • AND THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AN HOUR
  • 00:36:29.130 --> 00:36:30.290
  • WHERE WE HAVE A BETTER
  • 00:36:30.290 --> 00:36:32.090
  • OPPORTUNITY AS THE BODY OF
  • 00:36:32.090 --> 00:36:33.130
  • CHRIST TO BE THE ANSWER.
  • 00:36:33.130 --> 00:36:35.130
  • BECAUSE THIS COUNTRY DOES NOT--
  • 00:36:35.130 --> 00:36:37.200
  • WE ARE WOBBLING LIKE A DRUNK MAN
  • 00:36:37.200 --> 00:36:39.260
  • THROUGH THE NIGHT AND DON'T KNOW
  • 00:36:39.260 --> 00:36:41.100
  • WHERE TO GO.
  • 00:36:41.100 --> 00:36:42.110
  • SO THE BODY OF CHRIST RISE UP
  • 00:36:42.110 --> 00:36:44.010
  • BIG NOW WITH ANSWERS AND THE
  • 00:36:44.010 --> 00:36:46.210
  • LOVE OF JESUS AND THEN SPEAK THE
  • 00:36:47.070 --> 00:36:50.070
  • TRUTH.
  • 00:36:50.070 --> 00:36:50.270

  • BLUE LIVES MATTER IT MEANS YOU
  • 00:37:46.280 --> 00:37:49.280
  • HATE BLACK PEOPLE.
  • 00:37:49.280 --> 00:37:50.260
  • WHEN WE SEE AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN
  • 00:37:50.280 --> 00:37:53.280
  • GET SHOT WHO WAS NOT CAR YENG
  • 00:37:53.280 --> 00:37:55.190
  • ACARRYING AWEAPON OR GUN.
  • 00:37:56.290 --> 00:37:59.290

  • THIS IDEA BEING EITHER, OR, IS

  • WRONG, IT IS BOTH VERTICAL AND
  • 00:38:22.160 --> 00:38:25.160
  • HORIZONTAL.
  • 00:38:25.160 --> 00:38:26.020
  • SANCTIFICATION AND SERVICE.
  • 00:38:26.020 --> 00:38:28.220
  • CONVICTION AND COMPASSION, IT IS

  • THIS IN OUR NATION.
  • 00:38:52.110 --> 00:38:54.160
  • - I CAN THINK BACK TWICE UNTIL
  • 00:38:55.240 --> 00:38:58.240
  • I WENT TO COLLEGE THAT I HAD A
  • 00:39:02.010 --> 00:39:05.010
  • CONVERSATION WITH A BLACK
  • 00:39:05.010 --> 00:39:07.100
  • PERSON.
  • 00:39:07.100 --> 00:39:07.200
  • I GREW UP IN AN EXTREMELY WHITE
  • 00:39:08.020 --> 00:39:11.020
  • CULTURE.
  • 00:39:11.020 --> 00:39:11.240
  • IT WAS NOT UNTIL I WENT TO
  • 00:39:11.240 --> 00:39:13.150
  • COLLEGE THAT I HAD ANY CHANCE TO
  • 00:39:13.150 --> 00:39:15.100
  • GET A SENSE OF THE REALITY OF
  • 00:39:15.100 --> 00:39:18.050
  • RACE AND ISSUES OF RACE IN
  • 00:39:19.010 --> 00:39:22.010
  • AMERICA.
  • 00:39:22.010 --> 00:39:23.050
  • I HEARD SOME BLACK MINISTERS SAY
  • 00:39:23.050 --> 00:39:25.190
  • LOOKING BACK THROUGH HISTORY,
  • 00:39:25.190 --> 00:39:27.200
  • WHETHER IT WAS JIM CROW,
  • 00:39:29.230 --> 00:39:32.230
  • SEGREGATION, THAT LONG, BRUTAL
  • 00:39:32.230 --> 00:39:34.260
  • HISTORY OF CIVIL RIGHTS, I HEARD
  • 00:39:34.260 --> 00:39:37.220
  • SOME OF THOSE GUYS SAY, THE
  • 00:39:38.260 --> 00:39:41.260
  • CHURCH HAS SPOKEN UP, THE WHITE
  • 00:39:43.290 --> 00:39:46.290
  • CHURCH HAD SPOKEN UP IF THEY

  • SPOKE UP THIS WOULD NOT HAVE

  • HAPPENED.
  • 00:39:51.240 --> 00:39:53.200
  • SILENCE WAS THE PROBLEM.
  • 00:39:54.080 --> 00:39:57.080
  • I THINK THEY HAVE A VALID POINT
  • 00:39:57.120 --> 00:40:00.120
  • THERE.
  • 00:40:00.120 --> 00:40:01.070
  • I HAVE BECOME MORE AWARE, WHEN
  • 00:40:01.070 --> 00:40:04.040
  • CERTAIN THINGS HAPPEN LIKE
  • 00:40:04.040 --> 00:40:06.130
  • CHARLOTTESVILLE THE MOST RECENT
  • 00:40:07.020 --> 00:40:10.020
  • EXAMPLE, HOW VALUABLE IT IS WHEN

  • WE MENTION THAT IN PRAYER ON
  • 00:40:12.070 --> 00:40:13.230
  • SUNDAYS MORNING.
  • 00:40:13.230 --> 00:40:15.250
  • I UNDERSTAND BLACK LIVES MATTER
  • 00:40:15.250 --> 00:40:18.130
  • DOES NOT MEAN OTHER LIVES DON'T
  • 00:40:19.050 --> 00:40:22.050
  • MATTER.
  • 00:40:22.050 --> 00:40:22.150
  • WE JUST NEED THIS TO REASSESS
  • 00:40:23.270 --> 00:40:26.270
  • HOW WE TREAT A CERTAIN SEGMENT
  • 00:40:26.270 --> 00:40:28.230
  • OF THE POPULATION AND REMIND
  • 00:40:29.030 --> 00:40:32.030
  • OURSELVES THAT THESE PEOPLE DO
