Dr. Tony Evans, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, TX, is pre-empting his regularly scheduled radio programming this week to address racism in America and unity (or lack thereof) in the church.
Dallas was rocked two weeks ago when five police officers were shot and killed by a black man during a Black Lives Matter demonstration.
Below is the new schedule of programming for The Alternative with Tony Evans.
MONDAY JULY 25, 2016
When news of racially-motivated violence comes at us as often as it has in the past several weeks, it becomes painfully clear that it’s past time to face up to some biblical facts about racism. Today on The Alternative, Dr. Tony Evans will get to the real heart of the problem and explain how we can reverse the racial curse that’s tearing our country apart.
TUESDAY JULY 26, 2016
It’s easy to talk about forgiveness when someone does something to annoy or insult you. But when you’re the victim of a hateful tragedy like the ones in the news over the past several weeks, it’s a different story. Join us today on The Alternative as Dr. Tony Evans helps us understand forgiveness in that painful context.
WEDNESDAY JULY 27, 2016
The Bible teaches that there’s no discrimination at the foot of the cross. But there seems to be just about everywhere else, and it’s boiling over into violence more and more often these days. Today on The Alternative, Dr. Tony Evans discusses why the discrimination problem has a biblical explanation and a biblical solution.
THURSDAY JULY 28, 2016
Prejudice takes practice, and Dr. Tony Evans says most of us have been getting plenty of it since we were kids. Un-learning it isn’t easy, no matter what your background or ethnicity, but you’ll learn how to do it today on The Alternative in a lesson about putting Christ before culture.
FRIDAY JULY 29, 2016
It seems like no matter how much we talk about diversity, our differences still separate us—economic differences, cultural differences and as we’ve been seeing on the news, racial differences. But Dr. Tony Evans says the answer involves paying attention to the things that draw us together instead of drive us apart. It’s a look at the power of a united church.
