Systemic Racism, Part 3

Pastor Grasso looks at the relationship between postmodernism and systemic racism.  The view that America is systemically racist is built on postmodern assumptions about truth and intersectionality that are contrary to the Scriptures.

Systemic Racism, Part 2

Pastor Grasso looks at the ideological underpinnings of those who posit systemic racism as a problem in our country and in the world.  Here Pastor Grasso shows the relationship between Critical Race Theory, a neo-marxist ideology, to the issue of systemic racism.  He then shows the biblical deficiencies of such an outlook.

Systemic Racism, Part 1

Pastor Grasso evaluates systemic racism from a biblical perspective.  He begins with a definition as well as an explanation of how people argue for the presence of systemic racism before offering a biblical critique, showing that systemic racism is a corruption of biblical justice.

Homosexuality

Homosexuality is an important topic today.  We are told that if the church does not conform to the ethics of the world that it is evidence of intolerance, bigotry, and homophobia, but what does the Bible say on the issue?  Pastor Grasso shows that homosexuality is an action, not an identity, and according to the Scriptures is an aggravated sin.

Burial vs. Cremation

Is it important for a Christian to be buried, or is cremation also acceptable? Pastor Grasso looks at the biblical evidence and shows the connection between burial and belief in the coming resurrection. Since our resurrection will be bodily, and since the body is still united to Christ after death, it is important that the body is cared for rather than destroyed.
