Jasper’s Talk: Get behind me Satan: Addressing and correcting the evils of White Supremacy in the church.
To be rid of White Supremacy will cost the church something. In large part, the cost will be our ability to be nice without being honest. Jesus words to Peter are a reminder that it costs something to achieve the Kingdom of God. Sometimes disciples of Jesus stand in need of correction and invitation to reconciliation.
