Riots and Racism

I really liked what Todd White has to say here about how we, as sons and daughters of our Father in heaven, should respond to the current issues of racism and rioting. First and foremost, we must remember who we are, and Whose we are, not follow the systemic victimology and vindictiveness of the world. Beloved, we are to side with Jesus in this world, not with what’s popular on Twitter or the mainstream media. “As He is, so are we in this world.” (1 John 4:17b)

About Mel Wild

God's favorite (and so are you), a son and a father, happily married to the same beautiful woman for 40 years. We have three incredible adult children. My passion is pursuing the Father's heart in Christ and giving it away to others. My favorite pastime is being iconoclastic and trailblazing the depths of God's grace. I'm also senior pastor of Cornerstone Church in Wisconsin.
