Racism and Justice: A Biblical and Practical Response

BIG IDEA: All human beings are created in the image of God (the Imago Dei). As such, we all have the right to be treated with dignity and fairness. But we are all guilty of perpetuating injustice when we redefine good and evil to our own advantage and to the disadvantage of others. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to love one another in a way that restores the image of God to all people. 

Key Verse: Micah 6:8

Additional Verses: Psalm 146:7-9; Proverbs 31:8-9; Isaiah 58; 61; Jeremiah 22:3; Luke 4:18-19;

 Each week following the message, an opportunity for conversation will be hosted on Zoom. These conversations are intended to be a way to interact with the message content. These are not debates and participants are asked to please be considerate of the opinions of others.

Week 1 – September 13

Big Idea: All human beings are created in the image of God. But since the beginning of time, humans have acted unjustly toward others. The biblical narrative from Genesis to Revelation calls for the people of God to seek justice and mercy for those who have neither.

Week 2 – September 20

Big Idea: Humanity, past and present, has perpetuated oppression and injustice toward one group of people for the benefit of another, and has been the hallmark of every civilization. From government, to the church, to our own personal perceptions; we have participated in a systemic oppression of others.

Week 3 – September 27

Big Idea: As individuals, we are called to live out the biblical call to justice echoed by the prophets and taught by Jesus. Therefore, we must recognize, confess and repent of our own prejudices that lead to injustice and racism. We must then advocate for the needs of those who are suffocating from injustice until we’ve restored the image of God in all people.
