Just in case there’s any possibility of ambiguity or misunderstanding, and because I know that Bishop Barbara Harris is not the only one who has fogotten this Word:
Here there cannot be Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free man, but Christ is all, and in all.
— Colossians 3:11 (RSV)
It ought to be perfectly clear that this leaves no room for black and white, either — a gulf much less than that between Greek and Jew. Bishop Harris is oblivious to this, as she tries to turn the enforcement of the apostacy into a race issue (with the apostates assuming the mantle of Dr. King). In Bp. Harris’s universe, I guess Bp. Vicki Gene Robinson is an honorary black man.
… the other side of this coin is that there is no room in the Gospel for any nonsense about white racialism, either. NONE. Or for anti-Semitism, as well. While there are various tribes populating the world, there is only one race, and that is the human race. We are all fallen sons of Adam and daughters of Eve, parents of the dying race. In Christ, the new Adam, we are joined with him and become part of the new race, the living children of God.
In the one nation of ultimate importance, there will be no “white homeland” or “black homeland” or even “Jewish homeland” — all the nations shall bow to the One who is King of Kings, and every nation, tribe, people and language shall be represented.
And anyone who says otherwise is “creatively reinterpreting” Scripture as much as Barbara Harris or Vicki Gene Robinson are.
