South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott says on the 6th anniversary of the day Dylann Roof murdered nine people and wounded thirteen others in a racist rampage of an African American church in Charleston, South Carolina, believers have an obligation and responsibility to “use our resources and talents in a way that serves the least of these.”

In a recent interview with Star Parker, the founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, Scott says despite this horrendous tragedy Charleston has ever known, from it came the “greatest act of unification you’ll ever see in this state’s history.”

In fact, one of the surviving family members of the shooting recalled the truth found in Romans 8:28, saying, “Forgiveness is the only way forward.”

And of this incredible faith, Scott says, “It’s impossible not to hear the message by those nine family members and not be hopeful.”

But, he continues, “it’s also impossible for such a message of forgiveness and unconditional love not be embraced by a nation and a world hungry for the truth.”
