I was tasked with preaching Romans 1:16-32. Because of the length of this passage I just hit on the 2 big themes Paul covers—the gospel & the depravity of man. Paul gives 3 descriptives of the gospel and (what I call) the descent into the 6 degrees of depravity.
A fellow brother, whom I once pastored, asked if I could “provide a biblical example(s) where the apostles/disciples stood up and spoke out against social injustices.” Below is my response. I wrote this with, any believer who may also want to know this, in my mind. May we hear God’s heart and all be edified.
I am not attempting to address all the ills in our country or even the most recent ones, nor am I attempting to address why we have all these ills in our country. That said, I do want to address the Church's response (collectively and individually) to the wrongful events in our country involving discrimination and injustice in our communities.
