Confederate Monuments and School Names Represent America’s SINFUL Past

We all have sins in our past. Some of us may have been revelers, revilers, cheaters, fornicators, drunkards, and much more. However, Glory be to God we are that no longer! 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 says

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

Astoundingly, the very person God used to write this text, Paul, was originally known as Saul. Saul killed Christians, he did terrible things in the name of  a religion he did not fully understand. Thankfully, one day Saul had a divine encounter with the Lord on the road to kill more Christians in Damascus, Saul’s name was changed to Paul. After his conversion Saul was no longer referred to as Saul but Paul.

Today, in several occasions we still use the names from the South’s treacherous and sinful past. We have statues, schools, buildings named after treasonists, and racists individuals who killed American soldiers, enslaved children, bought and sold men and women, tore apart families, and denied them basic humane rights, and sadly, that is just the tip of the iceberg. It is past time that the region known as the Bible Belt actually reads the Bible and has its own “Damascus Road Encounter” with the Lord Jesus Christ and changes the names of public buildings named in honor of such vile people, and tear down the monuments on public grounds of all things that represent the South and this country’s sinful past. Then, prayerfully as a nation we can begin to have a conversation to talk about implementing practices and policies to ensure we NEVER go back there again.

What say ye?

  25. I have noticed that of all forms of insurance, medical health insurance is the most questionable because of the turmoil between the insurance policies company’s necessity to remain making money and the consumer’s need to have insurance coverage. Insurance companies’ commission rates on health plans are very low, as a result some businesses struggle to profit. Thanks for the concepts you discuss through your blog.
