5 Police Officers Killed, 6 Wounded by Snipers in Dallas #BlackLivesMatter Protest
Commentary & Analysis
L. A. Marzulli
Are we headed toward an all out race war this summer? With the events in Dallas it certainly may be a likelihood. We can point fingers and spin the situation a variety of ways. We can blame the horrors of slavery. We can blame white supremacy and racism. We can blame the guns—what Obama immediately jumped on. We can blame some bad cops. So what does that solve. Nothing.
There’s an answer to the chaos unfolding around us and it lies within our midst.
The answer lies is within our churches that are already established. However, churches are the most segregated places in America every Sunday.
The Koreans go to the Korean church. The Blacks to theirs. The Presbyterians to theirs and so on.
Can you imagine if we came together under the love of our savior who unites us?
We saw a glimpse of this with Promise Keepers decades ago. The movement fizzled out because there was no way to keep it going on a local level.
Pastors need to reach out, invite other pastors from other congregations to speak at their church.
There needs to be a time of prayer and fasting for the nation.
All Christians, black, white, yellow, red and every other color in between need to fall on our collective knees and come together.
We are at a crossroads here. The hatred goes deep. The mistrust like a festering sore. The answer to the problem lies within the words of Jesus.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
This is a supernatural love that transcends the boundaries of race and gender.
Pastors, come together and heal your sheep.
