Dr. Felisi Sorgwe: Unmasking Prejudice (Acts 10)
Dr. Felisi Sorgwe, is associate professor of theology at Houston Baptist University and pastor of Maranatha International Church in Houston. Sorgwe speaks directly to the relationship between prejudice and justice. Prejudice creates a “line of demarcation” for the distribution of justice between “us and them.”
Acts 10 records the story of Peter’s prejudice against people like Cornelius. Cornelius had a different problem that wouldn’t be helped by Peter’s prejudice. Acts 10 tells how God intervened to unwrap a long tradition of prejudice.
