Scripture in Black and White: Finding Identity and Dignity in Christ
In the third season of 'Scripture in Black and White,' Bobby Harrington, Anthony Walker, and Michelle Eagle invite listeners to explore the idea of dignity in the context of one's identity and roles. Today's episode goes deep into the dichotomy of shame and dignity and how people often allow societal categorizations, past failures, or external perceptions to determine their self-worth. The hosts assert that only by centering oneself in Christ, surrendering all shame and embracing the spiritual transition from old selves to new creations in Christ, can true dignity be found. The concept includes affiliations such as race or gender, but emphasizes an identity rooted in being Christ-followers above these secondary identities. The discussion also flows into how these principles apply in practical situations like handling past trauma and in relation to modern societal discourse.
