From the founts of wisdom over at Free Republic:
“To: OliviaforeverJesus is black, white, male, female, every ethnicity, every language, every stature in life because He indwells His Church through the Holy Spirit. And the church, the body of Christ, is made up of all of these. Note that the Bible says Christ “is all” of these things:
where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Contextually, it is saying that these distinctions no longer matter because they no longer separate those who are in Christ and in whom Christ dwells.
The world offers a cheap imitation of the unity of the body of Christ. Overcoming racism and the war of the sexes is only truly possible in Christ.44posted on Sunday, January 04, 2015 6:10:28 PMby unlearner (You will never come to know that which you do not know until you first know that you do not know it.)”
“[S]adly, politically correct Christians are willfully ignorant of race. Sam Francis writes: “Almost literally every time I have argued or debated about race in a public forum, I get a response from whites of quoting the Bible verse of Galatians 3:28 — ‘There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.’ This verse apparently has become the basic text for Christian universalism and race denial, although if it were interpreted as literally as those who use it for that purpose do, it would also deny the existence of sexual differences, a conclusion that is not only absurd but would appear to gut the Christian argument against gay marriage.” And this is exactly correct. The very same interpretation that denies racial distinction also logically undercuts rejection of feminism and sodomy.”
