Steve Hill's Spiritual Son: The Racists and Bigots of Charlottesville Need Us to Fight on Their Behalf

When your city is burning down around you, it's not time to grab a camera, but to bring a hose! 

This weekend I grieved as I watched the chaos loosed in our streets. The racism, bigotry and hate that poured into the city of Charlottesville, Virginia is a reminder of how bad this nation desperately needs Jesus. Revival that leads to reformation is a responsibility that rests with us, the church.

Have you noticed that when these violent acts take place, there is always a predictable response? The news media comes with an army of reporters hoping to capture the carnage and as a consequence create ratings. The pundits and talking heads then begin to opine for days in hopes of keeping the fire burning. Soon the bloggers are behind their keyboards, hopping on the latest trending topic in hopes of a few more clicks and shares. The rest of us fall in line, tweeting and posting hashtags lest we feel shamed for silence.

Aren't you tired of the circus? I'm convinced it does nothing to change the course of a nation that is rapidly descending into the abyss. It only speeds the descent. This nation needs more praying and less posting.

Posts and hashtags do not change cities; we do. It's time we realize that if the city is burning, we can't just blame the person who threw the torch, but also the person who sat and watched it burn as well as those who withheld the water. There is more blame to go around than we realize.

Don't misunderstand. Yes, the man who threw the torch is guilty. This weekend white supremacists, racists and bigots came to a city and protested. The result was fatal and destructive. These people do not represent us, our nation or our faith. Their actions already stand condemned by the law and more importantly by God's word. read more
