    No, not at all. Either we are for Christ, or we are not. There is only ONE BODY of Christ, and the HEAD is JESUS Christ. What part of Christ Body is Black, and what part of Christ Body is White, Yellow, Brown? Those who are trying to separate the BODY of CHRIST are the false churches.

    George, what point are you trying to make? Are you saying that "Black" churches are false or "white" churches are good, I don't see your point.

    Ezekiel 48:11 "It shall be for the priests of the sons of Zadok, who are sanctified, who have kept My charge, who did not go astray when the children of Israel went astray, as the Levites went astray". THE TRUE CHURCH NEED TO HOLD FAST TO GOD'S WORD IN THESE LAST DAYS. There to many false churches out there.

    Leezy, I am a non-believer, looking from the outside; Sunday mornings are the most segregated time in America. It's been 50 years since Jim Crow and you can tell on Sunday mornings, most churches, synagogues, and temples are still monochrome. I cant see it changing anytime soon, there are distinct differences, they all have different music, preaching styles, different atmospheres. Whenever you get a moment visit a "black" church and a "white" church, i think afterward you will see the differences as well.

    Why do we need to place a label on church. Saying it's Black, White, Asian etc... The bible says that the "CHURCH" is Christ body so why do we have to label it separately he didn't.... Also the work of a missionary is something purposed for you by God and as such you should only do if your called. Who of us can say that person (black man) or this person (white woman) was called for that work of service? None of us can.... so why does it matter what the race, ethnicity, gender etc..of those doing mission in or out of country.
