Resource Text:The Color of Compromise: The Truth about the American Church’s Complicity in Racism, by Jemar Tisby. This book is widely available through many local library bookstores and online bookstores. You may order here.

Noting that FHC has boldly declared herself a Matthew 25 church, the class asks what does that mean and, more importantly, how does it manifest itself when we also consider Micah 6:8 and Mark 12:28–34.

Shortly after the infamous Birmingham church bombing in September 1963, a White lawyer addressed his friends, neighbors, and colleagues and posed a profound question “Who did it” he asked. The lawyer responded to his own question with a provocative answer. “We all did it,” he concluded. Jemar Tisby writes, “being complicit only requires a muted response in the face of injustice.”
