In this part 2 of the 4 part interview with Rebecca Mclaughlin by Pastor JD Greear, Rebecca discusses why white Christian segregationists in the 60s’ wrong interpretation of the Bible created real problems today in terms of the direct injustice that has caused in American history, with white evangelicals using the Bible to justify their racism.
She says that it’s not because they were on the wrong side of history, it was that they were on the wrong side of the Scriptures.
