People of color. For me .. it has nothing to do with black and white; but it goes so much further. God created so many of us and created us within so many ethnicities. He created all of us for the sake of His glory and not for any man’s glory. If you are a believer in Christ, you are my brother/sister in Christ. Let me start right there ….
Recent words from James White, who calls himself a Bible scholar, have been terribly heartbreaking. As the Body Of Christ, it seems that we should realize that we are truly One Family with One Father. There has been nothing in churches of people of color that were not also in the other churches. There has been no way at all that a pastor of color has not been seen to preach the truth of the gospel any less than pastors of other churches. Black, Yellow, Brown, Green … it really doesn’t matter because inside and outside of the Body of Christ this is still quite a terrible true issue! I’m praying sincerely for James White, and for all white Bible readers who think the way that he thinks. Praying that racism will be killed!
There really is JUST ONE RACE … The Human Race!!!
Beautiful truths: Many churches of color do have pulpit soundness. Many churches of color do have teaching that is theologically sound. Many churches of color have theologically educated pastors. Many churches of color send International Workers all over the world for the sake of the gospel, not for their own glory at all!
Funny … so funny that I was raised in a church where we were taught, “Red and Yellow, Black and White; they are precious in His Sight!!” We were taught that He loved all of the children … all of His children!!!
Father, help us to love one another as you have told us to. Help us to remember that there was One Creator who made each and every one of us. Help us to remember that Jesus, Your Son, died for all of us and delivers us all from the difficulties of the world. Help us to see one another through the eyes that you have given us, and not through our own eyes.
