Steve’s Thought For The Day

As Steve Schwartz is spending the rest of the summer taking a boat ride up the Georgia Straight I’ll be forwarding any thoughts he sends me for the next couple of weeks.

Something I have noted:

Black Christianity is very,  very different then the white version.

Other than the Seventh Day Adventists and Jehovah’s witnesses,  the Black church is heavily driven by its historic role in emancipation.  Like Judaism with our tie to slavery as a source if our becoming a people,  the Black church has a similar meme.

This raises a question.  Can a non Black be a Black Christian.. not just a believer in Jesus but an accepted member of the Black people?
My guess is that theologically the answer is yes since the Torah is quite clear that anyone can become a Jew,  the Old Testament must say anyone can become a Black.
