But here is the real point of my post. It seems that now is the wrong time to be talking about it. The reason it has become a trending topic is because of the horrible shootings in Charleston, and while that young man acted out of racism and hate, that state's flag did not cause him to do what he did. Hate did. Sin did. Evil did. We've put all our emphasis on the flags, rather than on the evil that resides in the human heart.
So, changing the flags may need to be done, and it may be the politically correct thing to do, but it will do absolutely nothing to eradicate evil and hate. When will we be honest enough to focus on that? When will we admit to ourselves that the ONLY way is through Christ?
