LISTEN: My Brother’s Keeper: A Spiritual Solution is Needed for Young Black Men in America

Let’s not forget that “my brother’s keeper” is a Biblical term: “And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper?” (Genesis 4:9)

Despite all that has been done to combat the problems in the lives of young black men, there is still much left to do. The “My Brothers Keeper” initiative that President Obama has launched highlighted this issue once again.

While we appreciate what President Obama and others are doing to address issues that young black men face in the political, educational, and social arenas, we believe that lasting and permanent change can only be brought about through inner spiritual transformation. As Psalm 119:9 says, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word (God’s word).”

By providing a strong Christian foundation on which young people can build their lives, we can then branch out into educational and life issues that will help young men become successful and productive members of society. Additionally, in opposition to President Obama’s agenda, we believe that young men should be encouraged to be real men, and not homosexuals which is a lifestyle that is in opposition to God’s Word.

The spiritual foundation that we speak of is shown in the recent “The Brother’s Keeper” podcast episodes with Daniel Whyte III based on his Essence Magazine, Dallas Morning News, and bestselling book, Letters to Young Black Men: Advice and Encouragement for a Difficult Journey. Listen below:
