Christian statues are being destroyed.
Churches are being torched.
Now there are calls for direct attacks on Christians.
A former pastor (2008 – 2011) has received worldwide notoriety for wanting to destroy all paintings, statutes, and stained-glass windows of a “white” Jesus Christ.
Shawn King has 1.1. million Twitter followers and has been a controversial black militant activist.
King said, “Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? Egypt! Not Denmark.”
“All Murals and stained-glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down. They are a gross form of white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.”
“We can debate rather or not Jesus was real all day long. What I do know, is that white Jesus is a lie. And is a tool of white supremacy created and advanced to help white people use the faith as a tool of oppression. Also, they never would’ve accepted a religion from a brown man.”
Shawn King’s remarks further divide our nation and the church.
I’m not sure what he thinks of Black and Asian artwork of Jesus, or Christian followers of 4th century Byzantine art.
Or, as a former pastor, he should know the Gospel is color blind…the Gospel is for all races to share the Grace and Love of Christ.
But I am sure you will see more destruction of Christian art. It’s similar to what the Chinese, Cuban, North Korean, ISIS and the Taliban do today.
