The Bible says this about the Body of Christ: "There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all ONE in Christ Jesus." Galatians 3:28 If you belong to Christ, it doesn't matter WHAT 'racial group' or 'ethnic group' you belong to... you are my brother or sister in Christ. However, IF you choose to 'separate' yourself, and identify yourself by your RACE, rather than your relationship with Christ, than I certainly question if you understand what 'being in Christ' is all about; and, indeed, if you are even a Christian! Especially, if you identify with others who are of the same race as you who have identified themselves, by word and deed, as NOT Christian!

I am not writing this letter to accuse but rather to advance understanding. And even though I am white, I am not writing as an outsider but as a fellow evangelical, part of the same spiritual family. May I pose some candid questions?

Are you guilty, on any level, of blind allegiance to the Democratic party? And, on Election Day, did any of you compromise your convictions out of racial solidarity?

I have been very open in my criticism of white evangelicals, pointing out how we often put our trust in the Republican party and how we look to the latest...
