As Martin Luther King, Jr. famously lamented, « At eleven o’clock on Sunday morning when we stand to sing ‘In Christ there is no East or West,’ we stand in the most segregated hour of America. » This ongoing reality is not an accident of history; it is a failure of God’s people to live “in step with the truth of the gospel” (Gal. 2:14). God himself shows no partiality (Acts 10:34), and he condemns it among his people (Jas. 2:1). For the death of Jesus has abolished every self-righteous reason for separation, calling all people to share the same Lord, the same Savior, and the same unity in the Spirit (Eph. 2:14). Therefore, the church must continue to oppose the darkness of racism with the light of the gospel, becoming in practice what we already are in truth: the multi-cultural people of God.
