BLACK LIVES MATTER TO GOD
"The Lord will always be a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble" --Psalm 9:9
Yes, we are all precious in His sight. Yes, we are all made in God's image and goodness. Yes, God loves us all equally.
But because Black people are being murdered in our streets--the latest names in a sickeningly long list are Ahmaud, Breonna, George--and because this open hostility is disproportionately aimed at communities of color, Black communities in particular, we have to reaffirm--against the message that the world often sends--that Black lives matter to God. That Black lives matter to us.
This isn't about "politics." It's about the Kingdom. The Kingdom that tears down every system of caste, segregation, and discrimination.
We are His Place. We speak His truth. Black lives matter.
