James Baldwin speaks about Racism and the church

I don’t know if white Christians hate Negroes or not; I know that we have a Christian church which is white and a Christian church which is black.  I know as Malcolm X once put it: “the most segregated hour in American life is high noon on Sunday.  That says a great deal to me about a Christian nation.”  It means that I can’t afford to trust most white Christians, and certainly cannot trust the Christian church.

  1. Not at my church! Victory.com, is an integrated congregation with members from 100 different nations. The Heart of God is missions, reaching the nations. When we all get involved in this great undertaking, color differences pale in light of the task at hand. Yet, we recognize and stand against the injustice of racism wherever we encounter it! : https://chrisaomministries.wordpress.com/2014/01/25/using-racial-privilege-to-promote-the-kingdom-of-god/
