'When I'm Hopeless' - (Dr. Miguel A. De La Torre)

The death of Christianity in the U.S.

By Jennifer K. For many Americans, the results of the election and the waves of racism, sexism and white nationalism ripping through the country in the aftermath came as a surprise. For many minorities and people of color, it was not. We did not have the anxiety or shock. Miguel De La Torre, an ordained Southern Baptist minister and nationally recognized scholar and activist.

Many think of the death, burial and resurrection of Yahshua during this time of the year. Fortunately, more true prophetic voices are sounding the alarms, desperately trying to wake up this religious culture. I read this message below that echoes what I have been hearing, seeing and saying.

Burying White Privilege is all of these and more. This is the book that everybody who cares about contemporary American Christianity will want to read. Many people wonder how white Christians could not only support Donald Trump for president but also rush to defend an accused child molester running for the US Senate. De La Torre boldly proclaimed the death of Christianity at the hands of white evangelical nationalists. He continues sounding the death knell in this book. De La Torre argues that centuries of oppression and greed have effectively ruined evangelical Christianity in the United States.

We are pleased to share an excerpt from Dr. Eerdmans Publishing Company, Blocking our path to a country based on liberty and justice are the continued attempts of Euro-American Christians to reconcile the message of the prince of peace with a nation whose global and domestic policies have historically been more aligned with the prince of death, who revels in wars and bloodletting. Rather than being, as Martin Luther King Jr. We can never be the country we dream of being as long as we continue to worship a militarism that provides more death-causing weapons to the world than any other nation, while supporting an armed force greater than the military might of the next fourteen largest nations combined. We can never be the country we dream of being as long as we continue legalizing and legitimizing voter suppression, dismissing the voices of those whom this country has historically attempted to silence through electoral colleges, gerrymandering, and roll-scrubbing, and demanding photo identification cards while at the same time closing the Department of Motor Vehicles offices in minority neighborhoods. Let us dream of a new nation by awakening from the nightmare of the nation in which we currently live--a nation that Euro-American Christianity christened as supposedly holy and pleasing to the Lord.
