Today is Martin Luther King, Jr Day. Also, it being a Monday, I have in the past addressed “difficult passages” in the bible. Today, in light of the day it is, I offer a passage that we likely understand in thought, but fail to put in practice.
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28 (KJV)
How do we as Christians reconcile this with the quote often attributed to the Rev Martin Luther King, JR:
The most segregated hour in America is eleven o’clock, Sunday morning.
It was true then and its true now. The two should not be. Think on this and how we, the Church, should be one as Christ is one with the Father.
