I don’t want to be a white Christian.

I don’t want to be a white Christian.

And I don’t want you to be a black Christian. Or an Hispanic Christian. Or a Chinese Christian. Or an Indian Christian.

At least grammatically.

Because when I say white Christian I place my race in the position of an adjective, and it’s the job of an adjective to modify a noun. And when I allow the adjective of my race to modify the noun of my Christianity I always run into trouble.

What I need is the reality of my Christianity to modify every other reality of my life. Easier said than done, but that’s what grace does.
