How is this Christian?
As you know, Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. has been in the news lately for some remarks that are “over the top” to say the least. His brand of RACISM is especially foul because it masquerades behind a veil of Christianity.
MAKE NO MISTAKE THIS IS NOT CHRISTIAN IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM.
This is racism, pure and simple.
Compare what you read below, with what the word says about men, and how God sees them.
For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female – for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. And if you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s descendants, heirs according to the promise.
Now, having read those beautiful words from our Lord, contrast that with this from their “About us” section of the web site:
We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian. … Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain “true to our native land,” the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.
As reported at worldnetdaily, the focus on the African continent continues in two of the 10-point vision of the church:
- A congregation committed to ADORATION.
- A congregation preaching SALVATION.
- A congregation actively seeking RECONCILIATION.
- A congregation with a non-negotiable COMMITMENT TO AFRICA.
- A congregation committed to BIBLICAL EDUCATION.
- A congregation committed to CULTURAL EDUCATION.
- A congregation committed to the HISTORICAL EDUCATION OF AFRICAN PEOPLE IN DIASPORA.
- A congregation committed to LIBERATION.
- A congregation committed to RESTORATION.
- A congregation working towards ECONOMIC PARITY.
Does this sound like what’s found in the word of God? This is what Rev Wright’s wants you to know about them…that they are “committed to Africa.” Not only is this man centered selfishness, but it’s an affront to God.
Not one word about being committed to Christ. Nothing about how God made man in His image, and that there is only one race…the human race. Nothing about how, they will preach the gospel to their neighbor, no matter what their color, because in God, there are no races, or distinctions of nationality.
There is only one true way to defeat racism, and that’s the regeneration of men’s hearts by the Holy Spirit of God.
Reverend Wright; if you’re going to peddle this sick racism, do me a favor and don’t use God’s holy name while doing it.
You are just as sinful and rebellious towards God as those you denounce. You give God lip service while at the same time, you use His name to promote your own agenda.
By your actions you sully the name of Christ, by your words, you misrepresent God.
