    Deeper Waters Podcast 3/16/2019: Harold Felder

    Ready to talk about race relations some?

    -----

    What's coming up? Let's plunge into the Deeper Waters and find out.

    I have grown up in the South and lived here all of my life. My community was largely a white community. I did not have black classmates until I went to Middle School. Church was the same way. That's just saying a statement of fact.

    When I read the Bible, I read it as a white person. Yet could my perspective be different if I had read it as a black person? For example, would I read passages about slavery differently? It's understandable as a child to read the Bible and assume everyone looked and thought just like you, but when you do more study you know it's not like that. Most of our movies depict Jesus walking around Jerusalem as someone white. I don't think He was black, but I don't think He was white either.

    What if you do grow up in the black community. Will you be told sometimes that Christianity is the white man's religion? Will it affect you when you hear about the way Christianity was sometimes sadly involved with the slave trade. What about the Southern Baptist Convention and slavery? It's a mark of shame on Christianity today that we have been involved with that, but how can a man of color embrace such a religion?

    Why not do what should be done? Talk to such a man. Talk to someone who knows what life is like in that community. Talk to someone who takes race seriously. Talk to someone who wants to reach his fellow African-American community with the truth of Christianity. Talk to Harold Felder.

    Who is he?

    According to bio:

    Dr. H.C. Felder is a former atheist and NASA Software Engineer. After becoming a believer and being exposed to the truth of Christianity, he has dedicated his life to sharing that truth with others. He has an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, and both a Master and Doctorate degree in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary. Dr. Felder is the author of multiple articles in scholarly journals on race and the Bible. He is also the author of the book "The African American Guide to the Bible.



    Dr. Felder has been married to his wife Tina for eleven years. They have a blended family of four children & six grandchildren.

    We will be talking about race and the Bible. What is race? What about slavery? Were there any people of color in the Bible or was it really that Jesus was walking around Jerusalem just as white as His clothes were in the Transfiguration. What about ideas that Christianity is the religion of the white man? Is someone like Dr. Felder a traitor for embracing Christianity?

    I hope you'll be listening to this episode of the Deeper Waters Podcast as this is the kind of topic that we haven't covered before. Please also consider going on iTunes and leaving a positive review of the Deeper Waters Podcast. I look forward to getting to bring this next episode to you.

    In Christ,
    Nick Peters

    By the way, why do the podcasts on iTunes stop around mid-January? None of the later ones are on it.
