White US Christians becoming less motivated to address racial injustice: Barna
In findings made public on Tuesday, Barna reported that 33% of white self-identified Christians believe that the United States ‚Äúdefinitely‚ÄĚ has a race problem, down from 40% last year.
By contrast, 81% of black self-identified Christians agreed that the nation ‚Äúdefinitely‚ÄĚ has a race problem, up from 75% in 2019. Hispanic self-identified Christians stayed about the same, with 54% responding ‚Äúdefinitely‚ÄĚ in 2019 and 55% responding the same in 2020.
Barna also found that from 2019-2020, the number of white self-identified Christians who felt ‚Äúvery motivated‚ÄĚ to address racial injustice dropped from 14% to 10%....

Yes, Adriel,no absolutes in their minds. Hence the newfound war on math which is by nature a field based on absolutes. The rewriting of history, flimsy science, etc. etc. Remove absolutes=more removal of God from the equation.
The church we meet with is composed of mostly light-skinned folks, and some darker skinned folks. But mostly light-skinned folks live in the area, so I would suggest that is the reason for it. Maybe we can bus congregations around the county to make the melanin proportions line up with national census data, instead of old fashioned ideas like I attend there because that's where I want to attend.
The very concept or premise of ‚Äúracial injustice‚ÄĚ is unbiblical. God looks at the inward man; the heart of individuals. Color, shade, hue, or lack thereof have no power. Much like the lie of evolution, time is without power and chance is no thing.

Yes Phillip; With moral relativism questions are already on their hymn sheet. This generation does not appear to "know" God as per Judges 2:10.
They even are saying that "religion" has nothing to do with moral decisions. Thus NO absolute standard, like GOD, exists in their thinking.
Satan gains more influence daily and they cannot see it.
Liberalism//Modernism is destroying all authority in society.
I guess that is how their best scientific minds today can declare our grandparents a few generations ago were a bunch of monkeys, (evolution).
