turning the world to Christ

what i know for sure…..

Posted by dturn on February 6, 2008

Racism will never end until it first ends in the church.

One thing that has always bugged me was why there is such little diversity in churches.
Sunday morning is STILL the most segregated time in our country.

While outside the church doors racism still exists, inside we gather amongst ourselves and think nothing of it.

The other 6 days of the week, we have no problem shopping, eating, and rooting for the same football team (Giants!?!)

What I don’t understand is why we can’t reach out to people of a different color in our cities without making them feel like some second-class person.

The way we treat someone gives them an example of how God would treat them.
Would God belittle someone and have them thinking that they are less-than?
Would God stand next them in church but not speak to them at the mall?
Would God preach only about how “his” race has to overcome?

I am sure that you might think that these are exaggerations but they’re not.

This I know for sure.

  1. On point….I agree often times we say we want to reach out to different races but when they begin to show up do we include them.
