TGC Interview: Confronting the Racial Sins of Our Fathers

A couple months ago Collin Hansen from The Gospel Coalition sat down with John Piper for an 11-minute interview on the mixed legacy of race relations among evangelicals:

Time-markers —

0:05 — Is there more white supremacy today than 50 years ago?

1:42 — Does ethnic diversity bring out more racism or help eradicate it?

3:03 — Why do some Bible-believing Christians disobey what the Bible teaches?

3:44 — How opposing interracial marriage was the foundation to segregation.

6:00 — How does the Bible or specifically, Reformed theology, abolish racism?

Check out Collin's commentary on the video and read his review of Bloodlines.
