“As if segregating women for an [TGC] event isn’t bad enough, the Legacy are further segregating women by color under the idea that they are hoping ‘this gathering will create a space for women of color to address particular concerns and issues, process them together in small groups, and pray for one another.’”
(Churchwatch Central) Before Darwinian thought, there was no concept of racism. There were simply human beings. This is because Christianity has always taught that every human being is made in the image of God. There were definite class and cast systems, (which the Christian faith continually stressed to look past and not show particular favor towards) but not the concept that a white or black person were more evolved as a species. It is worth noting that when some segments of the church did embrace these ideas, the Klu Klux Klan was formed. This is the danger when secular ideas mix with Christianity.
To mix Darwinist ideas in the church is one extreme and the other extreme is just as racist – that’s Liberal/Emergent thought mixing with Christianity. A very good example of this liberal racism was on display at the upcoming and questionable ‘Gospel Coalition’ women’s conference. (Again Christianity focuses on mankind – not class, sex, colour or so on, which is why it will always be a controversial belief system. The gospel and the Lord’s table are for all those who confess Christ and repent of their sins.)
However, ‘The Legacy’, (hosting a special gathering at ‘The Gospel Coalition Women’s Conference’), recently put up on their website the following (emphasis added):
“TGCW18 will hold a special Women of Color (WOC) gathering because of those shared, distinct experiences. I understand that many white women attending TGCW18 deeply and sincerely desire to participate in an event like this so they can learn. Praise the Lord! May their tribe increase! However, we run the risk of the audience growing so large (and perhaps even resulting in our sisters of color being the minority at an event specifically designed for them to be the majority) that the goal of cultivating a space for more honest discussion and direct encouragement for women of color would be compromised.”
As if segregating women for an event isn’t bad enough, the Legacy are further segregating women by color under the idea that they are hoping “this gathering will create a space for women of color to address particular concerns and issues, process them together in small groups, and pray for one another.” Their excuse? “We are aiming to build up the whole body of Christ by strengthening a part of the body in a focused manner.”
