Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:31-32

The melee that took place last Saturday in Charlottesville, VA between Nazi-White Supremacists and Communist-Anarchists has shocked the nation.

Nazi-White Supremacists obtained a permit to march in the town to oppose the removal of a statue of Confederate general Robert E. Lee. But before the march began, the sides came into confrontation, violence ensued, resulting in scores of injuries and the death of a woman.

The mainstream media has pushed the narrative that the Nazi-White Supremacists are to blame and that President Trump supports them. Meanwhile, in the aftermath of the incident, Confederate statues and monuments have been removed by towns or pulled down by mobs in an effort to purge our history of anyone associated with slavery.

How do we make sense of all this? What is the worldview of Nazi-White Supremacists and the opposing Communist-Anarchists, a group known as “Antifa” (short for anti-fascist)? And why should biblical Christians, who would appear to be far removed from either side, be concerned about the ramifications?

Join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview as we discuss the values and goals of those fueled by hatred and bigotry.
