The Gospel and Racism

The President of Bob Jones University, Stephen Jones, in a recent written public statement, apologized for the past, hurtful, racist policies of the University (see also Greenvilleonline.com).

Such an admittance by Stephen Jones and Bob Jones University is encouraging. Racism of any form is bad and unacceptable. But, when it is found among those who profess to be Christians it is simply inexcusable and deplorable.

The gospel is the antidote to racism (cf. Eph. 2:11-22). Christ died to purchase men from every tribe and language and people and nation (Rev. 5:9).

In our first national conference on adoption at Together for Adoption, Carl Robbins delivered a sound exposition of Ephesians 2:11-22 entitled, “Adoption and the Multi-Ethnic Family of God.“ His message provides a biblical, gospel-driven, perspective for the church in regards to the issue of racism. I encourage everyone to listen.
