95 Theses for Christian Racial & Ethnic Unity: #60

The same ideology of white power that shaped white Christianity also influenced the formation of the black church.  If white Christians had submitted themselves more to Jesus than to the idol of whiteness, they would have embraced black brothers and sisters as equals and there never would have been a “white church.”  But there would have not been a black church either.  All of our histories have been compromised by the sin of white supremacy.
