Patheos – Soul Searching & Bridge-Building: White Evangelicals & Black Christians

„All too often, whiteness shapes Evangelical theology and the movement. It is not simply what we say, but what we don’t say that speaks volumes on our positions on race. When Evangelicals remain silent over President Trump’s racist and violent rhetoric, when we fail to listen to the heart cries of African Americans over their rightful fears concerning “driving while black,” when we speak out over pro-life stances concerning the beginning of life and end of life yet fail to address the structures that impact negatively the poor and ethnic minorities between the beginning and end of life, and when we don’t make every effort to diversify our leadership within churches and other institutions, we are fostering white hegemony in our movement. The “evangel,” from which we derive the name of our movement, is all about proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ to people of all tongues, tribes, and nations, and inviting people to become members of Jesus’ kingdom community. In this community, there is to be no division between Jew and Gentile, male and female, slave and free, for all are one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28).”
