A clip of Dr. Tony Evans has been circulating Twitter. In it, Dr. Evans is passionately preaching on the supremacy of the Bible over all other books. Specifically, Dr. Evans takes aim at books that focus on racism and social justice. He argues that people are quicker to pick up White Fragility than they are the Bible. Comments of “Amen!” and “Preach Dr. Evans!” flow behind the clip. I take issue with Dr. Evans’ argument for a number of reasons.
