From the founts of wisdom over at Free Republic:
Jesus is black, white, male, female, every ethnicity, every
language, every stature in life because He indwells His Church through
the Holy Spirit. And the church, the body of Christ, is made up of all
of these. Note that the Bible says Christ “is all” of these things:
where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised,
barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there
is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Contextually, it is saying that these distinctions no longer matter
because they no longer separate those who are in Christ and in whom
The world offers a cheap imitation of the unity of the body of
Christ. Overcoming racism and the war of the sexes is only truly
possible in Christ.

(You will never come to know that which you do not know until you first know that you do not know it.)"
The above sounds more like pantheism than Christianity. I mean, read the first sentence of the quote.
God is not the author of confusion.
The second Scripture that the Freeper above quotes, Galatians 3:28, is the one most frequently trotted out by universalist 'Christians', or unbelieving "anti-racists"/anti-Whites who have learned a few scraps of Scripture to pull out like a worn coin from a purse. I will quote what Harry Seabrook wrote
a few years ago about the deployment of that particular Scripture:
"[S]adly, politically correct Christians are willfully ignorant of race. Sam Francis writes: “Almost literally every time I have argued or debated about race in a public forum, I get a response from whites of quoting the Bible verse of Galatians 3:28 — ‘There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.’ This verse apparently has become the basic text for Christian universalism and race denial, although if it were interpreted as literally as those who use it for that purpose do, it would also deny the existence of sexual differences, a conclusion that is not only absurd but would appear to gut the Christian argument against gay marriage.” And this is exactly correct. The very same interpretation that denies racial distinction also logically undercuts rejection of feminism and sodomy."
It's necessary to be ready with some response to this 'argument' used by the politically correct, because it will be used whenever possible to promote the idea of race (and sex) being irrelevant if not actually non-existent. This skates very close to the 'race is a social construct' twaddle so beloved of the anti-Whites.
But even more than that, it promotes the essentially New Age/Eastern religion idea that God is all, and all is God. I am he and you are he and you are me and we are all together. That's not Christianity
, no matter how ''profound'' some people think it to be.
This is one reason why we are in such dire straits: people cannot discern true from false. They are easily taken in by sophistry and glib nonsense of any old kind, if it is delivered by someone who purports to be 'Christian' or 'conservative.' It's hard to know who is who anymore when no one thinks clearly or consistently anymore. Liberals believe themselves to be 'conservative' and New Age pantheists/polytheists think they are 'Christians', just as boys think they are girls and vice-versa. We can't take anyone at face value anymore. Discernment and common sense are needed as never before.
And the Freeper quoted at the top of this post needs to read and take to heart his own tagline.
