Differences in our society are not hard to see. They may be economic, political, social or racial. Too often, our differences are exploited for personal and/or political gain. God however doesn’t see these differences. He sees our hearts. Regardless of the differences, we are all created in the image of God. That makes us alike. Below is a link to an article written by Eric C. Redmond, senior pastor of Reformation Alive Baptist Church in Temple Hills, MD. As an African American, he offers a unique perspective on President Obama’s support for same-sex marriage. While rightly expressing pride in his racial heritage, celebrating the election of our first black president, Pastor Redmond recognizes that in no way, does race supersede godly heritage. Nor does it make an unbiblical view of marriage any less wrong. Our likeness “in Christ” should be what we celebrate the most, and as such, mutual submission to the authority of the Word of God and obedience to His will should be our greatest priority.
