An Open Letter to my Black Evangelical Friends

I see a lot of white people answering this letter to black evangelicals. It is not apparant to me that any of the answers came from a black person. Until recently, I (an old white guy) worshiped in a church with a black pastor, and mostly black congretation. I have not been able to go back. I just don't understand black people who indentify with Jesus Christ, and yet support a political system with a godless agenda.

Me neither, worshipping because of skin color is denying the ONE who created us ll, the ONE who knew us before we were formed within our mother's wombs. They have a form of religion but deny the power and that's not just Blacks who say they are Christians but many whites as well. I said above that the PASTORS who are leading and teaching these congregations have LOT of 'splainin' to do when the face God Almighty. They are preaching HATE..and according to my Bible Hate is akin to murder. I don't hate people of any race, however I do hate their actions..

"I just don't understand black people who identify with Jesus Christ, and yet support a political system with a godless agenda."

Unfortunately, for 95% of the black church goers (and we now have the perfect 'litmus test', in the person of Barack Obama, to assign an EXACT number to that figure), it's more about the 'loaves and the fishes' than it is about following Christ, and adhering to His teachings. When 'push comes to shove' they will support a Marxist, Muslim-leaning, homosexual and abortion supporting BLACK man (in this case, 1/2 black, but close enough) over any other candidate. The list of priorities for the 'black church' in this country is (1. their race, (2. the government and its programs, and (3. Jesus Christ. VERY SAD.

oh, yes, my comment about 95% following Jesus for 'the loaves and fishes' applies to the WHITE CHURCH in this country, as well.... When it really starts to COST 'Christians' in this country (of ANY color) something for serving Christ, then we will find out WHO the REAL Church is!

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...
