Another important and terrific episode. I couldn’t help thinking of Ezekiel and how he was told he was expected to “proclaim” but there would be no response because- like you said, Tyler, the hearts were dead. And then I thought of Him in that field of dead bones and answering God that He knows if dead bones could live. No one can promise if the circumstances will change. But He does promise that He WILL send encouragement. God bless your ministry and thank you.
It’s very difficult, I’m sure, to make progress when you’re advocating for segregation, while bashing white people for their “whiteness”. You’re your own impediment to progress.
In contrast, those like Candace Owens has had zero issue making progress. So maybe it’s not the skin color, but the hatred you’ve been espousing toward your white brethren.
