Are Christians Racist?

There is a lot of conversation going on during this election campaign and globalism, nationalism, immigration, racism, and just about every other ism that you can think of.  What I find interesting is that there is also a battle going on for telling Christians what they should and should not believe in terms of what this nation should do and the opinions that they should have.

Vai e vivrai. roma. 4 october 2008. No racism! by LucianoWe are going through the book of Ephesians in church, and one of the things that Paul wants to make sure that the believers in Ephesus (and in other churches, as it’s a major theme in Romans as well) know is that God is not a respecter of persons.  Before Him, there’s no difference between male and female, master and slave or Jew and Gentile.  Spiritually, we all have the same standing before God.  There’s no question about it.

It is upon this truth that much theology is based—whether it’s equality between the sexes, the idea that no man should own another or even the pro-life message to an extent.

Heresy

So it is not surprising when Dr. Albert Mohler comes out to make sure that everyone understands that the the Southern Baptist churches may have been founded by slave owners, that racism is something that is heresy.  This he outlines in full at his post The Heresy of Racial Superiority – Confronting the Past, and Confronting the Truth:

I do believe that racial superiority is a heresy. That means that those who hold it unrepentantly and refuse correction by Scripture and the gospel of Christ must, as Harold O. J. Brown rightly said, “be considered to have abandoned the faith.”

In some areas of the country, people treat others the same regardless of their skin.  However, in what’s become the new norm, reverse racism is being applied from the highest office in the land without knowing all the details.
