Taking a knee as a form of protest at an NFL football game is about revering oneself. Bending a knee to the King and Creator of this world in church is reverent worship for the One who is Greater.
I completely understand and in no way deny the injustices and the plight that the African-American community has experienced in the United States. For a nation that was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and the Christian Scriptures as a City on a Hill set apart, it is incredibly unfortunate to have a history of racism. We were a nation in a theological crisis over race that couldn’t recognize the imago Dei of the whole created human race – red, yellow, black, and white (that’s a reference to a children’s song, not a racial slur, you snowflakes).
Nevertheless, I was born decades after the Civil Rights Act, legally and politically, recognized the rights to pursue the jobs you desired, and the rights to a good quality non-segregated education. I was born in a time where I saw more black Americans experience more privilege making millions playing professional sports or becoming CEO’s of big companies than I will probably ever experience. And I saw black and white Americans go to church together and experience the Communion Table together.
Today, Colin Kaepernick, the privileged black elites, Black Lives Matter, the progressive movement, and the Democrat Party protest alongside Islamist terrorists like Linda Sarsour. Their protests turn into movements that extend the sexual revolution by dismantling the nuclear family, and stand in solidarity with the baby butcherers and baby part traffickers at Planned Parenthood.
A lot of people who are mad at Collin Kaepernick will be kneeling in church today. `

What about the injustices being done to the predominately-black urban communities today, perpetuated by the progressives and the Democrat Party? They endorse policies that make these urban communities into third world economies with gun free zones and failing government schools. Black Lives Matter, and the secular humanists they’ve aligned themselves with, encourage broken families with no father. They celebrate when abortion clinics open up on nearly every corner, as if it were a Starbucks, in these black urban communities.
If you really want to protest injustice against the minority community in America today, protest the policies that Black Lives Matter and the Democrat Party force on your communities. Protest the systemic racism of Planned Parenthood in their disproportionate targeting of black babies, the organization that Black Lives Matter is proud to support. Protest the disarming of law-abiding African-Americans in urban cities like Chicago and Detroit with their gun free zones, while breaking up the black nuclear family. Protest the failing public school system and lack of choice for better schools in urban communities.
Now, as a Christian Conservative, I have no love-lost for the American flag or the National Anthem. They aren’t symbols that represent the Christian heritage of our Founding. They represent our national rebellion against God. The flag and the anthem represent 40 years of nearly 60 million slaughtered pre-born babies, a genocide worse than the commie genocides. They represent a sexual revolution that mutilated and rebuked God’s natural order of creation and the Covenant of Marriage. Why should I respect symbols that represent debt slavery and the centralized authority of Statism when those ideas run contrary to God’s Word?
But protesting a flag and anthem are missing the point entirely. As Christians, we are to honor, not worship, our earthly king (1 Pet. 2:17). Given the Pledge of Allegiance’s socialist origins, that is what I will be protesting and its unbiblical belief of indivisible, which bestows an attribute of deity (Dan. 3:18).
All in all, this entire reality show indulges our identity crisis as a nation, and the Church isn’t pursuing gospel reconciliation. The Church is getting played by the Left.
