A Biblical Response to Hate

My friend Sean Sears planted Grace Church in Boston nearly twelve years ago. The Lord has blessed their fellowship with tremendous growth as literally hundreds of community members have come to faith in Christ. They are now one of the largest Protestant churches in New England. The following message is Sean’s pastoral response to the Alt Right.

This last weekend Sean and his family stayed at our home in Ohio while they were dropping their daughter off for her freshman year at Cedarville University. Sean recorded this message in response to a social media comment he received from a church member regarding white supremacists. Though he was going to be out of town, he felt that a pastoral response was both important and urgent. So he canceled his guest speaker for the weekend and recorded his response to be viewed on Sunday morning in his absence.

The following video is the mostly unedited and uncropped first take of his response.
