    9 ways to be a better white person - Religion News Service

    I came to hear about this from a podcast I listen to. There are so many things wrong with this. Unfortunately, this type of thinking is infiltrating the church, and the gospel is being replaced by emotions and false narratives.

    Just the title alone is wrong, as being white isn’t a sin, and does not need improvement. What does need to happen is to live life in a gospel-centered way, regardless of skin color. But you won’t find the gospel mentioned once in this article.

    What if you already belong to and worship in a Church where you are the only white person?

    God made of one blood all nations. So I believe racism is a term biggots use in creating the problem.

    She seems quite anxious to show there is a difference in people. But I guess if this age of increasing political division it is advantageous to stir the division pot if it will sell a book. Reminds me of those who are now calling Christmas secular songs sexist. But isn't encouraging white folks to be kinder gentler people still racism as it suggests we should patronize others?

    And white Evangelicals wonder why practically everyone else believes them be racist.

    Why has he achieved goodness for being the only white person in his church? No offense intended toward you or dzheremi by asking that question. I'm honestly asking. Am I missing something?

    If the article is to be believed, then he is already a better white person.

    Well that was a disappointing read. Judging from the title I thought I was going to get tips on stuff like how to make my 4x4 taller or how to score front row Lynyrd Skynyrd tickets.

    Then you really have nothing substantive.

    And you've already spoken volumes about yourself with your comments (hint: it isn't good), so there's that.

    I think our friend's response was meant in a satirical fashion.
