Apologist: Biblical worldview key to solving racial tensions

An expert on religion and culture says a recent poll on race relations proves America needs to return to the Bible-based values and morals on which it was based.

The recent CBS/New York Times poll shows that 61 percent of Americans believe racial harmony is worse than it was 20 years ago. The poll also marks the first time since 1997 that majorities of both white and black respondents believe race relations are poor.

Dr. Alex McFarland, co-host of American Family Radio‘s “Exploring the Word,” attributes this racial disharmony to a couple of factors, but foremost to the breakdown of the family.

Memorial Day fact 

 
Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who have died while serving in the U.S. military. First known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.It is not a day to honor veterans. They should be honored other days but today is a day to honor those who gave their lives so we could enjoy the freedom we enjoy today. 

Nebraska’s death penalty and the value of all human life ( commentary  Updated ) 

Listen to the  audio or read the commentary below.

      Don’t you think it is right to give the proper punishment to those who commit crimes. I sure do. 
    My home state of Nebraska is very close to ending the death penalty. However it is not the will of the majority of Nebraska citizens instead it is the will of some state senators.
    Lawmakers voted 34-14 — one more vote than was needed — to cut off a filibuster of the repeal bill.

They followed up with a 30-16 vote to advance Legislative Bill 268 to the third round of debate. The bill advanced with the same number of votes needed to override a  promised veto by the gov. 

Capital punishment supporters vowed to orchestrate another filibuster during the final round of consideration.

Gov. Pete Ricketts said the movement to replace capital punishment with life in prison was “out of touch” with Nebraskans he talks with on the issue.

As one who has been blessed with a Christian ministry to those living in prison including to inmates on death row I have mixed feelings on the death penalty. I know and have seen folks through the power of God  be changed including those who have killed in cold blood. However I believe if we value the lives of those who have been murdered in the most heinous crimes we need to keep this punishment on the books. Recently in Omaha, Nebraska a little five year old boy and his mother were murdered. An older son of the mother has been charged with the crime. He is alleged to have thrown the five year old in the river while he was still alive. If we value the life of that little five year boy we should keep the death penalty. 

What do you think.
