Protesters and Their Message: What truth?

Probably the whole world knows that a man named George Floyd died after being detained by police, on May 25, 2020. After the death of George Floyd, demonstrators went into the streets in many cities, around the world. The demonstrations grew, and persisted, and became violent. Probably the most important development was that the demonstrations became news stories, and we all started watching and reading. We were interested and we all started to form opinions.

Redeeming and healing the land?

CBN reports that dozens of people have been saved, some water baptized, and others healed at the very street corner in Minneapolis where George Floyd died at the hands of a city police officer. George Floyd’s death has sparked protests around the world, with many turning violent. Before his death Floyd was trying to turn his life around and was involved in a church ministry in Houston, before he moved to Minneapolis. But videos and photos are circulating on social media of the spiritual awakening taking place on the very street corner where Floyd died. Many of the postings are by a group called Circuit Riders. This is a ministry associated with Youth For a Mission patterned off the circuit riders in American history who travelled on horseback from town to town preaching the Gospel. Based in Huntington Beach, California, those involved with Circuit Riders similarly travel out from their base sharing their faith. And a group recently went to Minneapolis to share Jesus in open-air meetings after Floyd’s death. One of those Circuit Riders …

Was George Floyd a believer?

Most are undoubtedly familiar with George Floyd, 46, who was killed after a Minneapolis police officer put his knee on Floyd’s neck for an extended period of time. The officer involved has since been charged with third degree murder. In an article on CBN, Christian Rapper Corey Paul Davis had this to say about Floyd: While living in Houston, Floyd, known to many as “Big Floyd,” worked alongside Davis and other ministry partners who held a Christian outreach called “Church in The Bricks.” The ministry took place in one of the most notorious housing projects in the city. “Church in the Bricks was essentially we’re bringing a church service to the projects,” said Christian Rapper Reconcile. “I think Floyd loved that idea. I remember being out there one day and I was moving the baptism pool to the court to baptize some young men that had got saved and he helped pull the pool out. He was just so ecstatic, just the fact that young men were making decisions and choices for Christ and that …

Franklin Graham responds to George Floyd’s death

Minneapolis is aflame as protestors express their outrage over the death of George Floyd, a black man who was arrested and then died, as a result of a police officer putting his knee on Floyd’s neck as he lay on the ground handcuffed. The disturbing incident was videoed by several people. Though the protests turned violent, many of the protestors were peacefully expressing their outrage over what happened. Christian Post provided a breakdown of Floyd’s final minutes: “I can’t breathe. My face,” he responded as the officer kept pressing into his neck and asked him, “What do you want?” “I can’t breathe. Your knee’s in my neck. I can’t breathe, sh*t,” he said. Floyd cried for his mother in desperation as his pleas to the officer went unheeded. “Mama! Mama!” he cried. Floyd then tells the officer pinning him down that he was feeling pain everywhere. “My stomach hurt. My neck hurt. Everything hurts,” he said. Floyd was soon begging for water. “Water or something. Please. Please,” he said. About a minute-and-a-half into the video, …
