Perhaps one of Satan’s greatest exploits in American church history is to keep the church divided along racial lines. These days the racial lines divide fairly consistently along partisan lines, with white evangelicals often moving rightward and minority Christians often moving leftward. At worst, this divide compounds fear and mistrust, and exacerbates our disunity. Is this an accurate assessment? If so, what can be done? Can unity in the gospel be achieved only by overcoming partisan differences?
