ON THIS EPISODE
This episode is part 2 of a discussion we began in Episode 22 about white privilege: its existence, understanding it as a biblical/theological category, and how to respond to it. While we understand that this topic can be controversial, with many followers of Jesus denying its existence, we want to continue a nuanced discussion about it.
In this part of the discussion, we break down the idea of corporate sin, both in terms of generational dynamics and the sinful nature that we inherited from Adam. We also break down some practical steps for what to do with this knowledge.
Ultimately, our goal is that we would take seriously the voices of our brothers and sisters of color and create a more inclusive Church for future generations.

And so you need to be honest with yourself and aware of when that bias is coming into play. Click To Tweet
