Well, regular attendance to any church or religion doesnt make one heaven bound. The bible in the book of Genesis 1-26-28, states that God made man in his image, there is no version of the scripture that explains if God is black or white, so any racist in the house hold of God should be ready to discriminate against God, Jesus, Holy spirit and angels of God, and such discrimination leads to hell. Pastors should know that we are called to follow in the footsteps of Christ, that is ministering the word without fear, favouritism or influence of any member.

A church at 150years, imagine how 150years backward they went

If this kind of marginalization can be taken into the church, then, why do we practice Christianity? This was not Christ taught us. I feel for the black couple that were marginalized. And for the church members who rejected this idea, it is high time we defined our basis of Christianity. Peace, love and equality are some of the qualities of Christ.

May God have mercy. This is nothing but carnality in action. The spirit of the Lord is no longer in control of that church but the will of the minority. I pray that God of heaven would open their spiritual eyes so they can see clearly where they have derailed and retrace their steps back to calvary, to living by what Jesus Christ laid down for us. In fact, this world is moving to an end. Friend, how prepared are you for Christ coming?

Is that what Jesus christ laid down for us.Why discrimination in the church of God, and we claim that we are serving the same God. What will other Religious people say if they hear this, because this kind of things cannot happen in their religion. If these white people know that they are not after the things of this world but heaven, they must change their ways of thinking concerning blacks because we are one before God.
