The Alt Right, we’ve heard it bantered about the news media but in our 30 second “sound bite,” world it easy to miss the full meaning of this term. Is it simply a media fabrication or is it something even more insidious?
“The alt-right—short for “alternative right”—is an umbrella term for a host of disparate nationalist and populist groups associated with the white identity cause/movement.” If you’re not familiar with the ideology of The Alt Right and why Christians must denounce them, here is an excellent, summary explanation.
Every nation. Every Tribe. Every Tongue. Worships freely before the Throne in Heaven. Jesus made us all and loves us all. The tower of Babel was a placing of dividing people to slow down the rapid advance of sin, the Cross of Christ is the place where all races are to be reunited in Jesus. Christians must denounce the Alt-Right. The Article below is not mine, I couldn’t have done a better job. Credit to Joe Carter and the Gospel Coalition I have linked back the original site.

The FAQs: What Christians Should Know About the Alt-Right
Earlier today, the Southern Baptist Convention adopted a resolution condemning the movement known as the “alt-right.”
The language of the resolution reads, in part,
WHEREAS, Racism and white supremacy are, sadly, not extinct but present all over the world in various white supremacist movements, sometimes known as “white nationalism” or “alt-right”; now, therefore, be it RESOLVED, That the messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention, meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, June 13–14, 2017, decry every form of racism, including alt-right white supremacy, as antithetical to the Gospel of Jesus Christ; and be it further RESOLVED, That we denounce and repudiate white supremacy and every form of racial and ethnic hatred as of the devil; and be it further RESOLVED, That we acknowledge that we still must make progress in rooting out any remaining forms of intentional or unintentional racism in our midst; and be it further RESOLVED, That we earnestly pray, both for those who advocate racist ideologies and those who are thereby deceived, that they may see their error through the light of the Gospel, repent of these hatreds, and come to know the peace and love of Christ through redeemed fellowship in the Kingdom of God, which is established from every nation, tribe, people, and language.
The resolution initially caused confusion because many Baptists—like most other Americans—are not familiar with the movement. A majority of U.S. adults (54 percent) say they have heard “nothing at all” about the “alt-right” movement, and another 28 percent have heard only “a little” about it, according to a Pew Research Center survey taken last year.
