Cancel-history hides much truth & calls it CRT

When some history
Is considered off limits
And kept in mystery,
We’re being contradictory
To the truth.

The history
We won’t face
Enslaves us to
A limited and distorted
View of our past.

Cancel-history
Only tells
One side
And stifles
Those who
Try to tell
The fuller story.

The parts of American history
That are cruel and dreary
Are being called
Critical Race Theory.

Let’s courageously
Push the limits
Of our history
And tell
The broader story.

When You limit your thinking
To the history you know
You'll never grow
In your understanding
Of the past.
Read some history
That will show you
Things you don't yet know.

Do you know . . .
The details of
How slaves were treated
In America
Or how Jim Crow laws worked
And the impact they had
On people's daily lives?

Learn more history.

Instead of saying
God’s on your side,
Let God live inside
And lead you
To His side.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
