Civil Civil Rights or the Kingdom of God?

February 10th, 2015 Leave a comment Go to comments

The way we have mythologized the Civil Rights movement is embraced by Christians because it fits well with the secularized church in North America. It fosters the illusion that God’s justice and righteousness can be achieved through political action alone. But the cracks in the veneer of social harmony dominating the headlines (and I’m not just talking about black/white relations) ought to give us pause to reconsider whether the Civil Rights movement is the triumph secular society has proclaimed it to be, and further whether the kingdom of God can be implemented by an act of Congress.
