Following up on my post from yesterday, I wanted to link to the EFCA statement on racism. It begins,
“We in the EFCA are grieved by the events last week in Charlottesville, Virginia. Any individual, group or movement that elevates self over others is contrary to God’s creation of all as image-bearers (Gen. 1:26-28), and His work of redemption in recreating, by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, “one new humanity” (Eph. 2:14-16) . The alt-right, consisting of white nationalists, white supremacists, KKK, neo-Nazis, and other racists, is anti-God and anti-gospel.”
The detailed position continues at the link above. As Central Plains is an EFCA church, I am thankful for these thoughts and guidance on this difficult issue.
