Colony Of Heaven, A (19 pages) A Multi-Ethnic Church Built on the Foundation of Christ (2008)

By William Furioso

The “United” States of America, as well as many other nations in the world, continue to fail in the struggle against racism. People ask: “Why, after all that has been tried for so many years, has there been no apparent success in solving the problem?” The answer is this: Racism is sin; and human society will never overcome any sin without “the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus”. (Romans 8:2)

But has the Church, the Body of Christ, manifested victory over the sin of racism? The answer is: No. And the reason is this: Churches have been built on (shifting) foundations of culture, and not on the Foundation of Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:11)

The churches of the New Testament were confronted with the cultural issue of racism, but found their way to “the Firm Foundation of God which (still) stands”. (2 Timothy 2:19)

I believe G.K. Chesterton was referring to that authentic biblical Christianity we see in the New Testament when he said: “Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.” The Lord has called His Ekklesia out of society and gathered them together for the purpose of being a witness and testimony representing the Kingdom of Heaven to the societies of the world. Will we walk in that calling?
