Ep. 3 Remarkable Christianity? – Dr. Ruben Rivera

Welcome to the H.U.E Podcast!

*SPECIAL NOTE – If you have not done so, please listen to the Introduction Episode of this series first. (scroll down)*

This is the third guest interview in the series: Will the Church Ever be Free of White Supremacy?

In this episode, Dr. Ruben Rivera pursues a core question of the Church: how to take Christ the One Way into the cultural many? He stresses the necessity of Christ as always being culturally relevant but never culturally captive. Dr. Ruben calls us to a transformative faith that does not follow Christ while believing dehumanizing views of our personal “Samaritans” (“the other”).

Ep. 3 Lyrical Lesson – Remarkable Christianity?

The song “Brother” by The Brilliance provides a melody to the message Dr. Ruben Rivera stresses. When we see “the other”, the Samaritan we don’t agree with, as our brother (daughter, father, etc.), then we no longer disregard their humanity in the midst of our disagreements. This is the remarkable Christianity that Christ models and the Church, if we so choose, is empowered to share.
