Our Words As We Speak Up Against Racism


America finds herself at a curious time of racial and political division. While this condition is not new, what is striking and curious about this particular time is some of the chief drivers of division claim to be Christian while simultaneously promoting superiority of one race over another. By Bible standards, this is hypocrisy.

On the subject of divisions The Apostle Paul wrote with authority, "There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus." We at Shiloh Baptist Church Bordentown firmly claim this stance without reservation. All people are welcome, indeed invited, to share in our worship of Christ and His love, regardless of race or political leaning.

This June 19 marks the American holiday of Juneteenth, commemorating the abolition of slavery in America and the beginning of true liberty. Let us resolve to dedicate this time to advancing our country toward its Constitutional promise of full equality.
