    Shame, Scapegoating and Racism

    Shame, Scapegoating and Racism

    Most Christians are familiar with lamb that was sacrificed on the Day of Atonement each year during Israel’s fall festival. The lamb’s blood made temporary atonement for the sins of the people and foreshadowed Jesus, the “lamb who takes away the sin of the world.” But many have never notice that there were two animals actually presented on the Day of Atonement. One goat was slaughtered, but the other was kept alive and sent to the wilderness to bear the shame of the people. In today’s episode, Pastor Alan Wright shares about the significance of the scapegoat and explains how families and societies tend to scapegoat individuals or segments of people. Understanding the cause and cure of scapegoating is essential for the healing of racism.
