95 Theses for Christian Racial & Ethnic Unity: #64

To break out of the white cultural status quo of today’s evangelical movement, we must confront hard truths about ourselves and about the things that truly drive our institutions. If we don’t, we’ll never find ourselves in that place of total freedom and faith until that allows us to be used by God in radical ways.  As evangelical leaders, are we trusting in God to use us to build his kingdom—in all its glorious diversity—or are we too busy trying, in his name, to preserve our own?
