Episode 23 - Timothy Killer, Part II

This episode is part 2 of a discussion we began in Episode 22 about white privilege: its existence, understanding it as a biblical/theological category, and how to respond to it. While we understand that this topic can be controversial, with many followers of Jesus denying its existence, we want to continue a nuanced discussion about it.

In this part of the discussion, we break down the idea of corporate sin, both in terms of generational dynamics and the sinful nature that we inherited from Adam. We also break down some practical steps for what to do with this knowledge.

Ultimately, our goal is that we would take seriously the voices of our brothers and sisters of color and create a more inclusive Church for future generations.


We've heard it said that this is a 'sin problem and not a skin problem.' While that's true, that view often ignores the systemic issues at play. Share on X Sin often gets ingrained across generations, and the effects of it compound with each generation. Share on X Sin is about more than one person doing a single evil act against another single person. Share on X Having an abiding sense of guilt for being white is just as unproductive as denying the existence of white privilege. Share on X Maybe there are certain stories in history that we need to re-explore with a more critical lens. Share on X We all have racial bias. And so you need to be honest with yourself and aware of when that bias is coming into play. Share on X
