Christian Martyrs

BrotherhoodWhile the words, "Our Father, who art in heaven" made the whole world kin, the concept of the brotherhood of man was still a crock! Left on their own, human beings were not allies to one another but enemies full of color and ethnic prejudices. There have been more wars and more Christian martyrs since 1900 with it's brotherhood of man than in all the centuries since Christ!

Jesus Unites and Unifies

Large CongregationThe reason all nations became one global family in the Mystical Body was that, in the words of John 3.16, "God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son." Saint Paul pointed out in Colossians 3.11 that, "Here, there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all and in all!"

Creator Worship

Holy SpiritThere could be no racial or ethnic prejudice in the global Body of Christ. In the book, "Christian Ethics" page 78 we read, "Human sin takes the form of pride. Those of one skin color or ethnic background take that difference as the measure of worth." To put the matter theologically, they worship the created rather than the Creator. By taking my height or color or ethnic difference as the standard of value that itself becomes the root of prejudice. A person of another color was then not only different but worse. For them, 'White is beautiful' meant 'Black is not beautiful.'" But in the Body of Christ all were beautiful!
