SPOTLIGHT: People Love Darkness Rather Than Light

Written by David E. Smith

Did you think COVID-19 was the worst challenge we would face in 2020? Now a new type of contagion is spreading across our nation and the world and it is potentially as destructive as coronavirus. This Spotlight features my conversations with Dr. Eric Wallace and Stephanie Trussell regarding the aftermath of the horrific and unjust murder of George Floyd.

Eric and I discuss the right to peacefully protest and the biblical and correct coupling of justice with righteousness. We also consider the forces and financing behind much of the rioting and looting; responses from Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown, Mayor Lori Lightfoot, and President Donald Trump; and the possible effect this unrest could have on the 2020 election.

Stephanie and I also explore the fallacy that a grassroots uprising led to widespread violence and we discuss how current events might impact the upcoming elections. Additionally, Stephanie encourages black Americans and others to move beyond victimhood and the intentionally repressive policies of the Democratic Party. In closing, we consider what the Church and Christians’ response should be to injustice and the importance of actively sharing our faith.

Please listen and share!
