Description: From the Holy Roman Empire to the Trans-Atlantic slave trade and the Apartheid Era in South Africa, the Christian church has represented racial oppression and injustice. Even at the start of the Early Church, racial tensions threatened the movement of Jesus. Yet, the Christian imperative—as read through the Scriptures, lived through Jesus, and sustained by the faithful—is to break down the walls of hostility to create what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called the “Beloved Community.”
