WATCH: Duggar son-in-law tells black friend that believing in evolution is racist
Duggar daughter Jessa Seewald posted a video to her YouTube account last week in which her husband Ben Seewald and his “brother in Christ” Dante Berry discussed racism and Christianity and claimed that the theory of evolution is not just a “false religion,” but racist.
Jessa Duggar Seewald, a star of TLC’s recently canceled reality show 19 Kids and Counting, has been using her YouTube channel to answer questions from her fans about Christianity.
“How should Christians respond to racism in America?” one viewer asked.
“There’s been a lot of, like, tension in America,” Ben Seewald said to Berry, “between, like, blacks and whites, and in the media, too. There’s been all these reports and, like, ‘race war’ and, you know, going on and everything, and these killings and people saying, ‘Hey, we’re trying to start a race war?’ How should we respond to that as Christians?”
Berry pointed to the Gospel of Mark, Chapter 3, verse 25, which says that a house divided against itself cannot stand.
“If you check it out, what they’re trying to do with America,” Berry said, “is to basically have us going against each other while the Devil can sneak in real clearly and destroy what he’s trying to destroy.”
“That’s right, there’s no room for racism in Christianity,” said Seewald. “That all comes from the Devil. That all comes from, like, this false religion out here, evolution, that stuff? Teaching that, like, some people are ‘more evolved?'”
“In Christ, we’re all one,” Seewald concluded. “Man looks at the outward, while God looks at the heart.”
