Why We Should All Take a Knee

Honestly, this weekend, we all should have taken a knee. I write this for all who love this nation; all who honor the sacrifice of those who have fought and given their lives for us, and all who cherish the freedoms of the First Amendment, we missed a crucial moment. A moment where America needed us to take a knee—a knee bowed in repentance.

Church, it seems many have become more impassioned to defend the flag and anthem during a football game than we are to proclaim the gospel to a lost and perishing world. Imagine if all that energy had been properly pointed towards the root of the problem and not the fruit. I dare say we might save more than the flag!

What was accomplished this weekend?  How did we move the ball down the field towards national awakening?  Who won?  Are we more or less divided today than we were one week ago? My friend, the nation is hurting. It needs to be healed!

Yes, like you, I am disturbed to see players disrespect the national anthem and flag by sitting on the sidelines. I truly believe our flag represents, "one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."  It is the symbol of a bold idea that all men are created equal. This should bring us together, not tear us apart. It is a shame many cannot see this. The answer they seek is in the very ideal they disrespect.

Likewise, I am equally disturbed to see how the issue was used this week to stir up a voting base. Why? Because our flag represents, "one nation under God, indivisible."  We honor the ideal of the flag by seeking unity, not division. If we do not stand together, we will fall alone. This is also a shame.

The flag and more importantly, what it represents is not a prop for a political protest. read more
