MCA Church is a multi-ethnic, multi-generational, multi-socioeconomic worship community that loves one another deeply. We rarely talk about racism in our gatherings because we simply feel that crying racism actually strengthens and lengthens this terrible sin against the image of God.
A racist is a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
A bigot is a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.
A xenophobe is a person who is unduly fearful of what is foreign.
NONE of these three perspectives please God and all three are a great insult to being created in the image of God.
The racist, bigot, and xenophobe often struggle with unhealthy and sinful prejudice.
To be prejudiced is to hold a preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience.
Most forms of prejudice are sin because they can not be true. People can not accurately be assessed by skin color, race, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic standing, or height or weight.
Here at MCA Church we hold to a very simple and basic solution. Our highly effective plan won’t make headlines, may seem unsophisticated and kindergarten-ish.
We don’t mind. We are a simple folk. Our plan requires only three Jesus’ words to define.
Sorry. No long books to read. No degrees to be earned. No sensitivity training required.
Time for the great unveiling of MCA Church’s secret to our multi-ethnic success.
“Love your neighbor.”
