What Do We Do About The Political divide In the Church Among Races?

#15–Especially In the USA the church is divided politically across racial lines blacks and whites. How will the church address this division and speak truth to the core issues and root causes? will we just go back to pretending it isn’t there and hope it goes away or will we openly address it in wisdom and love? Where are the bridge builders? and who and where are the sources of division racially?

David R Huskins Having been a campaign director for both democrats and republicans and of course having been a pastor of a multi-cultural church I have determined that corruption is on both sides of the political isle and that racism is real and alive and exists in both communities mentioned. The antidote for me in dealing with race is GRACE. Having grace to forgive history, and having grace to recognize that both sides carry ideas and wounds from history that have no place in the present. We will heal the political divide when we discover that there is no “righteous” political party. There are only righteous positions. If we support the human race as our main race we will begin the movement forward and treat all equally. Grace must also be used to recognize the hidden racism in our own hearts. Politically we lose crediability when we side with either party because BOTH parties have an agenda that is contradictory to the agenda of the Kingdom of God. Support positions that we can but refuse to be divided from our brother over a failing system. LOVE STILL CANNOT FAIL…

David R Huskins I have a family that is culturally diverse and becoming more diverse and a church that is very diverse…when the election was going on I determined to talk about ISSUES that affect ALL but recognize neither party nor candidate had the real solutions only the Kingdom could do that.

Ronald Smith Jesus bridged the gap.The church needs the revelation that there is only ONE MAN, CHRIST RISEN, and we as believers have been put into Him. Division comes because we lack the vision of this ONE NEW MAN, THE CORPORATE MAN CHRIST IN WHOM AND WHOSE WE ARE. He abolished all other identifications or distinctions at the cross.

  • RicknMary Claeson Here in Austin we have more and more black pastors looking for all races to attend their church, hopefully through prayer we can claim all.
  • Roy Storkson will we openly address it in wisdom and love? Yes!!
  • Diana Snyder Hester Man and politics cause division with their own personal agendas. Jesus and His truth are the only bridge builders.
  • Diana Snyder Hester However, if you choose to follow a man instead of the Messiah, you will most certainly be led astray.
  • Djc Csada …how can the eye say to the foot we have no need of you ….? We are all the same flesh should one hope to see unity in the body of Christ? hopeful we will soon. I believe in preferring one another.
  • Diana Snyder Hester Remember, Jesus said a number of things will be the sign of His coming and one of them is great deception will abound to the extent if possible, the very elect will be deceived. I learned this as a new believer 43 years ago and it scared me to the extent I determined to know for myself what the Bible says and determined for myself not to follow anyone who does not get their revelation from the Word. You can only do that if you know what it says. Many people do not know what it says for themselves so how much more of a dumb sheep can you be?
  • Diana Snyder Hester Oops. I just realized I meant to post this under your other topic. Oh well.
  • Matt Stebleton I lead a government accsess prayer team that talks and prayers about this very issue. One issue is we need kingdom minded men and women who are called to get involved in politics. Two we need to pray that the hearts of men turn toward god. Thres seek god for his choices. And their is more but dont want to keep goin on.
  • Diana Snyder Hester Support the fact that there are absolutes and relativism is a street to the same as we have been getting in our society…curruption and lawlessness.
  • Lori Zwirecki Craine I DID NOT BELIEVE THERE WAS RASISM IN THE U.S. TILL THIS ELECTION, SOMETIMES IT SEEMS LIKE MIDDLE AGE WHITE FOLKS WANT TO KEEP THEIR TRADITIONS ALIVE LIKE BEFORE THE 60’S CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, THEY WISH TO CONSERVE THEM, AND NOT SEE HOW DIFFERENT TH…See More
  • Joel Thornhill It is of the plan of the left to cause division in all societies when necessary, in order to bring on so called change. The stirring of racism, class warfare is a convenient tool for this. It was the main focal point of this campaign. And guess who won…See More
