During an interview with Evangelical podcaster, Jennie Allen, Mike Kelsey–co-pastor at McLean Bible Church in Virginia with David Platt–said that it was difficult for him “not to torch all white people.”
This level of racism, whether spoken or indeed, should be intolerable among the Church of Jesus Christ. Instead, people like Kelsey are elevated to positions of leadership they are unqualified for.
This is not a matter of bridling the tongue–this is a matter of out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks (Luke 6:45). In other words, Mike Kelsey has exposed his racism and made it clear that his heart, mind, and soul have not been transformed by the gospel because, in fact, he still carries such a burden of hatred within him.
