The supposed and so-called “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright claims there is the Black Church and that white people simply don’t understand the Black Church.
There is no such a thing as the Black Church. There is no White Church. There is no Red Church. There is no Yellow Church. There is no Brown Church. There is no male Church. There is no female Church. There is no free Church. There is no slave Church. We are all one in Christ, and to suggest any of us Christians are separate from the others because of race or color is…well, I’ll skip the sermonizing and simply say such a man is not a very good Christian.
It is written: “For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are all one in Christ” (Galatians 3:26-28).
And: “Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond [nor] free: but Christ [is] all, and in all” (Colossians 3:11).
Why do we still seek to be divided by race? Why do some continue to insist that, contrary to the unity demanded by Christ, we are divided, and that one does not understand the other? I’m a convert to Christianity, and this exhortation to unity is clear even to me. I do not understand how other Christians can be driven astray by preachers like serpents who poison their minds with ideas that because of their race, they are different. The black man and the white man should together sing praises of their Redeemer. To suggest the white Christians just don’t get the black man’s strange Gospel is quite astounding (not to mention something that takes a lot of chutzpah). There is only one Christ and only one Gospel.
I fear this is a source of evil, a tool of Satan. Heavenly Father, save us from men who preach the philosophy of men mingled with Scripture. Save us from such antichrists.
