This begins a part two (2) of the series within Matthew 24 on the social topic of *”Ethnos” [definition: noun, from Greek ēthos, ‘nature, disposition,’ the characteristic spirit of a culture, era, or community as manifested in its beliefs and aspirations] regarding “Black Lives Matter” (BLM). Black lives do matter, but not because they are solely black.

‘5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, 6 and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.‘ 2 Corinthians 10:5-6 NASB
‘8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. ‘ Colossians 2:8 NASB
