Conservative activist Charlie Kirk, half of the brain cell behind Liberty University’s “Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty,” said on Twitter today that racism — or at least the kind of systemic racism pervasive throughout our nation’s history — is a lie. He also mocked everyone protesting against police brutality, because of course he did.
As anyone who’s been subject to racism — i.e. Not Charlie Kirk — will tell you, it’s exhausting to have to defend your own existence and self-worth to the sort of people who think blackface jokes are hilarious, take pride in Confederate monuments, and instinctively say things like “All lives matter” because they don’t understand what they’re responding to. It’s frustrating to have to explain American history to people whose career is built on distorting or ignoring it.
But Kirk of all people should know what it’s like to “dedicating your life to something that doesn’t exist”…
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" – John 14:6
This Easter invite Jesus into your life. He will heal, guide, lead, teach, comfort, and love you
Jesus was God's ultimate gift to the world
Jesus is king!

Jesus died for us
Was tortured for us
He is a gift to broken humans
He is a teacher for the lost
He suffered so we can be forgiven
Jesus is love
Jesus is LORD

Jesus taught us.
Walked with us.
Ate with us.
Worked with us.
Debated with us.
And then for doing nothing wrong, died FOR us.
We don’t deserve it
We didn’t earn it
We are all sinners
We are all broken
But have salvation
Thanks to Jesus taking up the cross
To save us

We are all sinners
We are broken, sinful, selfish, doomed people
God loves us so much he sent us a gift
The gift he gave us taught us, walked with us, discipled us, and died for us
Jesus Christ is the king of the world
This Christmas glorify him, accept him, and praise him

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But holly trust is Jesus' name
Christ alone, Cornerstone
Weak made strong in the Savior's love
Through the storm
He is Lord
Lord of all

Today we celebrate the most important person ever to live
He taught us timeless wisdom
He healed us
He instructed us
He is the door, the way, truth, light
No one can get to the father except through him
And today, HE IS RISEN
Jesus conquers death

It must be miserable to be Charlie Kirk. It takes effort to believe something so materially false.
