Jesus Wasn’t White
Bible Text: James 2:1-13 | Preacher: Connie Zehr | When given an example of prejudice, I think: “surely I am not guilty of Prejudice, or Discrimination, or Racism, or Favoritism!” The color of a person’s skin, ethnic background, level of education and income, sex, age, etc. are character-neutral attributes. When we focus on non-character traits, and base our attitude and treatment of someone on that neutral thing, we are guilty of the kind of discrimination James says is not compatible with faith in Christ. As we go about conducting the Business of the Church, let us speak and act as those who are to be judged by the law of liberty. And let us remember that mercy triumphs over judgment.
