“War Room” actor Priscilla Shirer has called on Christians to unite around their Christian identity before anything else in a viral video clip where she declares that she doesn’t describe herself as a black woman.
“I do not describe myself as a black woman because that gives too much power to my blackness,” Shirer says in the clip recently shared on Facebook by Chuck Bernal, founder and lead pastor of LifePointe Church in Crowley, Texas.
“I don’t want my race to be the describing adjective of who I am as a woman. I am not a black woman. I am a Christian woman who happens to be black,” Shirer continued to cheers in the video which has been viewed nearly 3 million times since it was posted on Sept. 26.
“It’s the job of your adjective to describe the noun of who you are. If there’s gonna be an adjective describing me it’s not gonna be my race, it’s going to be I’m a woman who believes in every single thing that my God has declared to be true. And I will stand firmly on the promises of His word because I will be girded in truth,” she said.
It wasn’t immediately clear where Shirer was speaking at the time but during the message, she extended an invitation to all Christians to embrace their Christian identity above race and politics to prevent themselves from being led astray.
“So you may be a black woman, a black man, a white woman, a white man, but that should not define you. So if your race or if your political group is going in a different direction than the Word of God, you don’t choose your blackness or whiteness or whatever culture…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
