Christianity Today Calls for Reparations from Churches: 'Repentance Is Not Enough'
The president and CEO of Christianity Today says in a new editorial that churches should consider making “biblical restitution” to African Americans for the sins of slavery, segregation and racial injustice by setting up financial funds “to make it right.”

“It’s time for white evangelicals to confess that we have not taken the sin of racism with the gravity and seriousness it deserves,” Christianity Today’s Timothy Dalrymple writes in the editorial under the headline, “Justice Too Long Delayed.”

“... [R]epentance is not enough.” ...

True repentance is evidenced by a sinner
willingly turning his back on everything he before thought saved him or recommended him to God, and resting SOLELY on Christ ALONE as his only ground, hope, and cause of eternal life. The Apostle Paul wrote, “For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.” (Php.3:3) —Pastor Richard Warmack

Again Adriel, you follow traditions of men and NOT Christ. In Matt. 3 'repent' doesn't mean the sinner 'does something' for repentance is given by God - see 2 Timothy 2:25. What is it God commands sinners to repent of Adriel? Look what the Bible says, not Thomas Watson, who oddly stopped short of giving the entire text from Heb. 6:1, "Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of **repentance from dead works**, and of faith toward God". That is what God brings sinners to repent from/of, the 'dead works' they had been doing to get saved, or stay saved, or prove they're saved. Watson is a false teacher, preaching works based conditional dead works like all the other Reformed Calvinists of his day, which continues to this present day.
How is repentance defined Adriel? metanoéō, met-an-o-eh'-o; from G3326 and G3539; to think differently or afterwards, meta- a preposition, noeo- noiéō, noy-eh'-o; from G3563; to exercise the mind (observe), i.e. (figuratively) to comprehend, heed:—consider, perceive, think, understand.' from Strong's. Some insist on following the traditions of men, which are also called doctrines of demons. Those who have ears to hear will hear...

Repentance, By Thomas Watson.

"It is a great duty incumbent upon Christians to solemnly repent and turn
to God: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Mat 3.2); “Repent therefore, and be converted so that your sins may be blotted out” (Act 3.19); “Repent of your wickedness” (Act 8.22). In the mouths of
three witnesses this truth is confirmed. Repentance is a foundation grace: “Not laying again the foundation of repentance” (Heb 6.1). That religion which is not built upon this foundation must fall to the ground."

"Repentance is a pure gospel grace. The covenant of works allowed no repentance; there it was: sin and die. Repentance came in by the gospel. Christ has purchased us with his blood so that repenting sinners shall be saved. The law required personal, perfect, and perpetual obedience. It cursed all who could not come up to this: “Cursed is everyone that does not continue to do all things which are written in the book of the law” (Gal 3.10). It does not say, “He that does not obey all things, let him repent;” instead, it says “let him be cursed.” Thus repentance is a doctrine
that has been brought to light only by the gospel"

(The Doctrine of Repentance) (T.Watson)

Watson, (and the historic Church) was not 'wrong' about Repentance.

Like so many Reformed/Calvinists, Watson gets repentance wrong, claiming it relates to sin.It's always best to stick with God's word, But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Matt. 9:13 Repentance, from metanoeō - to think differently or afterwards, i.e. reconsider- made up of two words, meta- a primary preposition, and 'noeō'- to exercise the mind (observe), i.e. (figuratively) to comprehend, heed:—consider, perceive, think, understand.' From Strongs. There's nothing in that word that would suggest a stopping from sinning, that would point the sinner to 'self' and a condition that must be met for salvation. That goes against salvation by grace. Repentance has to do with the mind being given an understanding, but about what? What is it the mind must grasp? 'Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.' Acts 20:21. It's a change of mind about God, about Christ, about what Christ has done to save His people. 2 Timothy 2:25 makes it even clearer, it's a repentance that leads to a knowledge of the truth about Christ, what HE'S done to save His people, not Christ plus what you do....

"Repentance" has nothing to do with this generation apologising for history.
That is ridiculous.

Doctrine of Repentance.

"The two great graces essential to a saint in this life are faith and repentance. These are the two wings by which he flies to heaven. Faith and repentance preserve the spiritual life just as heat and radical moisture presserve the natural. The grace which I am going to discuss is repentance.

Repentance is purgative; do not fear the working of this pill. Strike your soul, said Chrysostom; strike it and it will escape death by that stroke. How happy it would be if we were more deeply affected with sin, and our eyes swam in their orb. We may clearly see the Spirit of God moving in the waters of repentance, which though troubled, are yet pure. Moist tears dry up sin and quench the wrath of God. Repentance is the cherisher of piety, the procurer of mercy. The more regret and trouble in spirit we have first at our conversion, the less we shall feel afterwards." (Thos. Watson)(Repentance)

Perfect! Why should my wife and I be deprived of our finances for reasons we had absolutely no control or responsibility over.

Come to think of it, since the worst offenders are perceived to have been Southerners in general, and Confederate soldiers in particular, I think it’s poetic as well as legal justice to make all reparation payments in Confederate money.

The federal government could award each documented descendant of slaves a hundred billion dollars. After all, the government can never run out of money as long as there’s paper and ink. And printing lots and lots of money is a sign of a robust, healthy economy. Just read up on the Confederacy or the Weimar Republic.

I have no Christian reason to repent or pay any reparations to anyone who was wronged by my distant relatives or by my government. I have never owned a slave, harmed a black person, or did anything that I would consider to be racism.

Asking for reparations from me would be the same as asking for reparations from catholics because of the inquisition.

I truly think it's time to change your name. Heresy of the Day should fit. I used to get notices from you on email until I realized you didn't know what you were talking about and unsubscribed. My Great Uncle died in the Civil War. My Great grandfather fought in five major battles. Did you guys forget the lyrics to the Battle Hymn of the Republic??? "As HE died to make men holy, let us die to make men free! While God is marching on." You have no right to call yourself Christian. Our Country is suffering because it has failed to Honor God, and His Bible the Truth of God to try to please and follow the culture. Your part of the problem, not part of the solution. What the Christian Church needs in America is Biblical Truth from Gods Word. Not a bunch of opinions and heretical apostasy. That reparations story today is beyond belief. Do you go out and find people who do not know the Word and promote them? Why don't you try sticking to the Word. Maybe people would actually read your magazine. Start following and obeying His Righteous law. The Pop-Culture Church today is not the Church of the Bible. God does not bless lawlessness, nor disobedience to His Word, nor sin. Whats going on now in our country is first a warning to the Church to get back on track.

Reminds me the hypocrisy that comes out of the basement of Lincoln, CNN, Socialist breathing grounds of College Campuses & the New Cult of BLM. The problem isn’t Race or Skin color it’s Sin!

You have silence for 14 centuries of Islamic Slave trade that still goes on or the Sex Slave trade, etc. As it’s all about narratives, for political gains & make money off pushing lies!!

As the Bible makes it clear we are our own wrost enemies from within as we are defilied from within!

O’ how precious it’s for Christ dragging one out of their spiritual pit of spiritual bondage of deadness that only Christ can do for one, O’ thank You Lord amen!

If you can't get money out of dead people, Jim, then reparations are impossible based on Biblical principle.

I'm not saying that racism hasn't continued, but the actions in your posted article hasn't legally happened in 155 years in this country.

Revelation 7 shows a huge group of Geniles of all nations and peoples and languages gathered together and in white robes before the Throne. Ephesians 2 closes with a description of how faith in Christ reconciles peoples. Those are better articles to consider than your liberal postings.

Though I now suspect the Reparations crowd really want to enslave or kill White Men, not merely take their money, as the Final Solution to "reparations." I would've dismissed this thought not long ago, but not anymore.
Not, really, Neil, you can't get money out of dead people. but the first part of your comment was very interesting to me since I'm only of Northern extraction anyway, in fact a great...uncle of mine fought for the Union. so Southern reparations sounds great

I would suggest you read the article by Ta-Nehisi Coates --
--I think I might have to warn you there might be a rough word or two when he quotes somebody--- it's so long I'm not sure I remember right❓ Also it has some of the most fun graphs before the covid-19 ones became prevalent since the article. Mr. Coates would probably want Northerners to pay something also❗👎

I wonder if France and England can demand reparations for all the white slaves that were taken from their countries and sent to Africa Muslim domains. A good book on the subject is called "White Gold" by Giles Milton. Your public library might have a copy, and you better check it out before it disappears from the shelves.

""churches should consider making “biblical restitution” to African Americans for the sins of slavery, segregation and racial injustice by setting up financial funds “to make it right.”"

Obviously yet another Politically Correct Liberalist satanic organisation masquerading as "Christian"

Like the Anglican/Episcopalian Liberalist mobs they are UNBiblical and faithless.

In their religion they deny repentance to "please" sinners and sodomites etc etc.

Eph 6:6 Not with eyeservice, as MENPLEASERS; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; 7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and NOT TO MEN:"

The phrase, "repentance is not enough" - Shows them to be illiterate and ignorant of Bible doctrines.

GOD is Sovereign in the whole history of creation. ::-
God is sovereign over the entire universe: Ps 103:19; Rom 8:28; Eph 1:11
God is sovereign over all of nature: Ps 135:6-7; Mt 5:45; 6:25-30
God is sovereign over angels & Satan: Ps 103:20-21; Job 1:12
God is sovereign over nations: Ps 47:7-9; Dan 2:20-21; 4:34-35
God is sovereign over human beings: 1 Sam 2:6-7; Gal 1:15-16 ....

"STOP" trying to make GOD apologise for history.
