What’s the best way to promote racial harmony? If you’re the Social Gospel Coalition, the answer is segregation.
The Gospel Coalition (TGC) has advertised an event at 9:15PM on the Friday night of TGC18 Women’s Conference for “Women of Color” only. White women need not apply.
Specifically invited are “all women of color.”
In the meantime, the Scripture says…
Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all (Colossians 3:11)
Can you imagine the Aposotlic church holding a gathering barring Gentiles (or Jews) from their gathering? Such a notion is antithetical to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which reconciles all people to worship together under one baptism, one Lord, and one church (Ephesians 4:5). But for the leftist-progressive Social Justice Warriors (SJW) at TGC, segregation seems to be just the ticket. Unity by segregation is a thing, right?
Intentionally dividing people into ethnic groups is an appalling display of disunity and is the recipe for cultural division. To exclude women who are not “of color” (Caucasians are translucent, devoid of all color, we suppose) is not only self-defeating in the realm of racial reunification, it is downright racist. Imagine, if you would, an event held by any subsect of American evangelicalism that invited all women of Caucasian descent to take part in worship. The outrage would be earth-shaking.
The Gospel Coalition is not a religious organization, but a political one. Funded by Cultural Marxists like James Riady and George Soros, TGC and its sister organization (which shares board members, conferences, and bloggers), the ERLC, are sowing seeds of racial division to accomplish a political end. And the negative consequences for the Gospel and racial harmony are truly tragic. Given that at least half of the slated speakers are radical feminists and egalitarians, we suppose that barring women of majority ethnic composition shouldn’t surprise us.
But, it still does.
