Prominent Pastor Says the White Church ‘Created Racism’ + Advocates for Reparations

When we last saw former Gospel Coalition author and council member Thabiti Anyabwile, he had preached a sermon explaining that all black Christians and minorities must imbibe a ‘twoness’ to their identities, and must not assimilate into the mindset where they see themselves simply as a Christian, but rather must view themselves as both Christian and Black, as failing to do so will result in their destruction.

Naturally, he was in rare form at the 2022 Exiles in Babylon Conference, where he addressed the issue of reparations and racism in the church.

Note. As a brief refresher to familiarize yourself with Anyabwile, the pastor has used his social media platforms to refer to his leftist positions as “pro-life” issues and yet endorses pro-choice candidates like Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden while claiming that all white evangelicals are guilty of racism. Anyabwile’s real name is “Ron Burns” but he chose the name “Thabiti Anyabwile” to identify with the “Black Nationalist Movement,” a move he made prior to converting from Christianity to Islam. Afterward, Anyabwile claimed to have been reconverted to Christianity but chose to keep his Black Nationalist name, which should tell everyone something about him.
Thabiti is a very active and vocal proponent of white folk giving reparations to black folk. He has claimed that resisting reparations is ‘the echo of Cain’s voice’ and that white folk who reject systematic racism and reparations can’t read their bibles right.

During his message he shared, as reported by the progressive rag Baptist News Global

“Part of what needs to be restored is dignity. We had a system of theft that not only took labor, but took culture, took dignity, to some extent took a sense of humanity. … We’ve got to actually have conversations about ending the indignities of a society that was predicated upon that kind of theft and restoring dignity to those for whom it has been robbed.”

Later he opined:

“…Race and racism is not something that happened to the American church, but something the American church did using the Bible to create, legalize and profit from. Race and racism are topics Christians ought to know the truth about, ought to know a great deal about. After all, it is the American church’s creation.

willful ignorance is a significant part of white American culture.”

  1. I’ve seen a lot of church sham in my lifetime, but nothing that equaled calling this dreck “racial reconciliation”.

  2. And being a bunch of incorrigible savages is a significant part of black culture, not just in America, but everywhere it exists and everywhere it has ever existed. Everyone knows what ‘bad neighborhood’ and ‘shithole country’ mean, and to deny it is to deny truth—to side with the father of lies in accordance with your television programming.

  3. Why doesn’t he just get some of his reparations from the abundance that the three women who founded Black Lives Matter fleeced from the gullible over the last year or two when they pulled that monumental scam and have used a whole bunch of those millions to buy big houses including one in Georgia that comes with its own landing strip.

    I have to wonder what RC Sproul would say now about why he or the staff at Ligonier ever invited Burns to speak at past conferences. What poor judgment they had, along with inviting Ravi Zacharias, Lig Duncan and Al Mohler. I know these guys were very good at their deception but I mean really I had to be some kind of indication that they were charlatans.

    This is what worries me about Reformed pastors is there early relationships/friendships mean too much to them all too often and blinds them to reality.
