    O Ye Drybones : government sponsored segregation THE KERNER COMMISSION

    in Current Events

    In Baltimore in 1910, a black Yale law school graduate purchased a home in a previously all-white neighborhood,The Baltimore city government reacted by restricting African Americans to designated blocks. Explaining the policy, Baltimore’s mayor proclaimed, “Blacks should be quarantined in isolated slums in order to reduce the incidence of civil disturbance, to prevent the spread of communicable disease into the nearby White neighborhoods, and to protect property values among the White majority.”Thus began a century of federal, state, and local policies to quarantine Baltimore’s black population in isolated slums—policies that continue to the present day.In 1968, following hundreds of similar riots nationwide, a commission appointed by President Lyndon Johnson concluded that “[o]ur nation is moving toward two societies, one black, one white—separate and unequal” and that “[s]egregation and poverty have created in the racial ghetto a destructive environment totally unknown to most white Americans.” The Kerner Commission (headed by Illinois Governor Otto Kerner) added that “[w]hat white Americans have never fully understood—but what the Negro can never forget—is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it.”When the Kerner Commission blamed “white society” and “white institutions,” it employed euphemisms to avoid naming the culprits everyone knew at the time. It was not a vague white society that created ghettos but government—federal, state, and local.In 1917, the U.S. Supreme Court found ordinances like Baltimore’s 1910 segregation rule unconstitutional, not because they abridged African Americans’ rights to live where they could afford, but because they restricted the property rights of (white) homeowners to sell to whomever.

    A Call to Action - Part 2

    in Christianity

    We have two options as we look around and see the darkness overwhelming our nation.  We can sit back and wait for destruction or we can rise up and confront the darkness.  If we decide to stand, and having done all to stand, we must contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints.  If we choose this day to serve the Lord our God, we must submit ourselves unto His way, His methods and His agency.  This battle cannot be won if we continue to fight according the commnadments and traditions of men.  To continue this work of the flesh will only aid our enemies in the destruction of the Church, the family and our nation.


    In this episode of Standing Firm, we will discuss where to begin in this call for reformation.  Tune in this Friday at 12:00 pm eastern time as we call the saints of God to man their battle stations.


    We will also announce a new project from Covenant Commission and Reformed Church of the Holy Trinity.  Coming this October — RP15.  For more information visit www.reformedconference.com

    In this episode, Rocky takes another look at the scope of the Commission Jesus Called His followers to fulfill.  We are first called BY the Lord, then TO the Lord and finally FOR the Lord.  His "Great Commission" encompasses all those elements - which is why He entrusts His own Name to the Church.  Rocky makes the case for committing to what has been committed to you.  As great as Jesus is, its the least we can do!

    Crosstalk: The Great Commission, that which we have ALL been called to do.

    in Religion

    Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
     


    Matthew 28:16-20


    Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


    We are all called to preach the gospel. Let us go and fullfil the great commission.

    Do We Care?

    in The Bible

    There ia a cause; there is a commission, there is a kingdom to advance and glories to be won.  There is a hell of torment, a lack of fire being filled with over 4,000 souls every hour.  DO WE CARE?  It is not that there is nothing to be done; but whether there is a will to do what we must, THAT is the real issue of our day.


    Join KQC Ministries as we look into the cause and commission of the Christian faith and the role we each have to play in it.
