Under-represented groups continuously cry against injustice and inequality throughout our societies. Sin is the cause of injustice and inequity. I will begin with my own story, as an immigrant from Jamaica, in learning about racial injustice and inequality in the USA. We will seek to layout a pattern for racial reconciliation and justice based on our dependence on God’s Word. First, we will look at the issue by addressing the:
- A pattern of racial reconciliation in the Scriptures.
- The rise of the inferiority myth.
- The black church and the backdrop of the black experience.
Then we will suggest some ways to address systematic injustice and racial reconciliation by:
- Addressing the Biblical Kingdom agenda
- Prophetically declaring the Kingdom impact in the culture.
- Incorporating urban apologetics in our theological discipline.
- Practically addressing structural changes that are needed.
No matter from where we emigrate and what injustice we face, God has provided the right balance to deal with these issues. We are all made in the image of God. We are recipients of reconciliation by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We, therefore, have the suitable characteristics to lead reconciliation.
