Reverend William J. Barber II

Pastor William Barber says Christian nationalism is 'a form of heresy' | CNN

I was fortunate to hear this distinguished intellectual Christian speak at Bridgewater College the week of MLK Day. I bought one of his books and got to say hello to him, and he was friendly in person. Thanks to BC for having him there as a speaker.

I probably don't agree with him 100% politically, but that is probably also most other people in the world because we're all different, and I do agree on a lot of his politics. I am Independent and lean to the right, he's Independent and probably leans to the left. He did not endorse a specific party as the solution to our country's problems during his speech and recognized the need for both parties to make positive changes. I feel blessed to have been there and learned from his experiences and wisdom.

He started his speech reading from Amos 5:18-27, if I remember the exact verses correctly, and he made other references to JESUS and the Bible scriptures throughout his speech at Bridgewater College. Reverend Wiliam J. Barber II is a legit disciple of JESUS that some people who identify with the Democrat party are drawn to. This is a very good thing because I am glad that Rev. Barber is shining the Light of JESUS in places where he is more successful ministerially than many others have the ability to be.

Colossians 1:15-20 (New International Version) 15 "The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. 19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross."
