UF Law Professor Combats Racism

By Editorial Staff
Published March 2, 1990

GAINESVILLE, FL (FR) – As racism rears its ugly head throughout the nation, the need for compassionate and enlightened thinking swells. Incidents of racism in northeastern regions of Boston and New York, and the formation of groups like the skinheads and neo-Nazis have intensified the commitment of civil rights proponents everywhere.

At the University of Florida College of Law, Professor Anthony E. Cook is researching and advancing the causes entrenched in the hearts and minds of Black Americans through his scholarship and ministry. As a professor and part-time minister who is actively engaged in community service, Cook is committed to merging the realities of daily life with his vocation.

“There is an interplay between what I do as a legal scholar and what I do as a minister,” Cook says. “I try to see see how my activities in the community can inform my legal scholarship and how legal scholarship can inform my community activities.”

In a recent interview to be published in the Harvard Law Review, Cook presents the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as a paradigm example of the necessary interplay between scholarship, ministry and community service. The article attempts to advance the concept as a way of approaching the problems of racism and inequality.

At Mount Carmel Baptist Church in Gainesville, Cook preaches once a month, counsels young adults and organizes youth projects. He is also a member of a local anti-drug task force and the Coalition Against Bigotry.

In all his work, Cook aims to raise consciousness concerning the problems of racism, poverty and crime. “We need more people thinking about the problems facing poor people and other oppressed groups in our society. Individuals who can transcend limitations should take advantage of opportunities to serve as role models or moral leaders to assist others.”

“Growing up across the road from a country church instilled a lot in me,” he said. “And my parents really expected a lot and encouraged me in every way. Consequently, I was a hard worker.”

The Four Keys to the Millennium (Book)

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology

By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.

All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?

These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!
