The brutal murders of George Floyd (“I Can’t Breathe)in the States and Tshegofatso Pule, in South Africa earlier this month was a testimony to the awful reality that, in our world, some lives matter more than others. In this episode, David and John reflect theologically on the Black Lives Matter (#BLM) movement and in particular its significance for South African today. A narrow gospel focussed only on individual salvation has little to say to the realities of racism and gender-based violence, David and John argue instead for a recovery of a robust doctrine of the Imago Dei (Image of God). Finally, they explore the role of the church in the fight against racism and gender-based violence?
