Evangelical Black Pastor Calls Racism Issue in America ‘An All-Out Assault From the Gates of Hell’


My good friend, Mark Burns, an evangelical Black pastor from South Carolina, pulls no punches when he speaks about the powerful havoc the issue of racism is wreaking on our country.

Burns is convinced that racism is an “all-out assault from the gates of hell,” and that there is only one way it to battle it. It’s spiritual warfare at the highest level, and Burns says the effort must come from Bible-believing Christians who want to eradicate this abomination and bring peace and unity to America, where division continues to grow exponentially every day.

“Those of us who are of the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ know the only real way to combat this is to invoke the power of the Holy Spirit through the blood of Jesus Christ,” Burns told me on a recent episode of the Strang Report. “We, as believers, really need to begin to fight the demonic forces that we cannot see. That can only be done through the power of God’s Word.”

I’ve done two other podcasts with Mark previously about racism, which you can listen to here and here.

Burns says he sees our nation right now as “a dangerous place.” He says the critical race theory, which is now being taught in our schools, is a “danger to democracy” and “a form of communism,” an idea that threatens the very fiber of our free nation.

“The critical race theory, essentially, says that every institution in America is inherently racist,” Burns says. “If you are born white, it says you are, by definition, a racist. This is backward thinking and ultimately is connected to the effort to divide us so much that our very democracy, this republic, is in danger.

“With the critical race theory, we don’t need to try to figure out all of the details. We just know that Satan is behind it. And it’s going to take us pleading the blood of Jesus to get rid of it. That means having more patience and love and understanding and listening more to the Holy Spirit and how to communicate the message of Christ. It’s not Black God, white God or red God; He is just God. We need to get more and more spiritual leaders to speak to that in the spiritual realm. We all believe in the power of prayer and how we can move mountains.”

Burns, dubbed by Time Magazine as “Donald Trump’s Top Pastor” and named as one of the 16 People Who Shaped the 2016 Presidential Election, has written a book he says will publish in the next 30 days titled The Trump Card: Fighting Racism With Trump’s Policies and Not BLM Propaganda. In the book, Burns explains how proclaiming yourself as a patriot in America and supporting Donald Trump, in recent years makes you a white supremacist in the eyes of liberal Democrats—whom he says have “hijacked” this country.

“I believe that white liberals have opened Pandora’s box and really don’t know how to close it,” Burns says. “The word patriot has now been considered by the liberal left, the anti-religious liberal left, as a dog whistle to mean white supremacy or a racist epitaph. That is untrue. The reality is that we’ve had so many Black Americans who fought for the freedom of this nation; Black men and even Black women have fought and died representing the red, white and blue and the independence of this great nation.

“They made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can be considered a nation that is a nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. They are slapping those who have died in the face by declaring to be a patriot means that you essentially are a Trump supporter and you are a racist. This is false.”

“Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can
never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change
things. Outlook determines the outcome. If we see only the problems,
we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems,
we can have victory.”
– Warren Wiersbe

the banner of faith and keeps on running in the assurance that
Jesus is Victor.” – Basilea Schlink
