Race or Christ? Christians that are African American May Have To Choose In The Next Election!

During my research a while back I ran across an article about Pamela G. Wilson a young African American author and formal journalist about her book that is drawing attention: Finding Soul Brothers: Dismantling Black Christian Racialism.

Before you dismiss it; let me break it down for you. She is examining whether Black Christians will vote along racial lines; as has been a long tradition or vote their moral compass based on the bible. This could come into play if Barack Obama were to win the Democratic nomination and was facing a viable Republican candidate.

This not only can be a hot topic amongst Christians that are also African Americans, but it has been in times past.

One of the main reasons that this could be a “deal” breaker for either party is the economy, the economy, the economy. Now, as Christians we shouldn’t be focused on the Economy but instead we should be trusting God; however, many Christians are not that spiritually mature.

Christians are really picky about party affiliation. I found that out the hard way not too long ago. I’m going to link the article because it makes for excellent reading HERE

* By the by: I could hide behind a journalistic robe, but I won’t. Nothing comes before God for me, just in case no one knows it. Nothing means zero!

The whole issue is Spiritual Warfare; it’s a distraction. If you don’t know this: you’ve got studying to do. I say it with love.

I would actually love to hear your “e-pinion” on this. Your thoughts?
