In 1992 America watched the LA riots after the Rodney King beating trials. Thousands of people in Los Angeles joined in what has often been characterized as a race riot, or a mini-civil war, involving acts of law breaking compounded by existing racial tensions, including looting, assault, arson and murder. In all, 53 people died during the riots.

I’ll never forget watching TV when one national newsperson stepped up to a black lady to ask her opinion about those riots. She said, “What’s the matter with all these crazy people? Don’t they believe in Jesus?”

Jesus is the answer to this world of sin. He alone is the answer and we must keep on pointing people to Him.
