Black & White Theology


A black pastor and a white pastor, Tyler St. Clair and Noah Filipiak, discuss a theological topic and a race relations topic.

Our podcast name has a dual meaning:

Some theological topics are black and white. They are either correct or incorrect based on what the Bible says. There are other theological topics that are grey areas. In fact, the Bible tells us that some things will be grey areas. The importance is in using Scripture appropriately to tell the black and white from the grey.

Most theological conversations happen in ethnically homogeneous groups. The Church misses out on a great opportunity to be a part of the solution to race relations in America when it does this. When theology is only done homogenously, you also end up with a warped, one-sided perspective.

Episode 4: Unconditional Election, God's skin color, Steve Kerr, and white megachurches

Noah and Tyler take on the "U" in TULIP for the theological topic of this episode, Unconditional Election.  Via the mailbag, they discuss God's skin color and why white megachurches should not be seen as the definition of a successful church in America.  And Tyler can't help but bring up President Trump's cancellation of the Philadelphia Eagles' White House visit, in which we look to our special correspondent Steve Kerr for insight on.
