Just as man has an obligation toward his Creator, he
also has responsibilities toward his fellowman. A Christian must love
his neighbor as himself, regardless of his neighbor's racial, ethnic,
religious or social background; he must be a light to the world by
setting a proper example, and he must do good toward all men as the
Christians do not live in this world by themselves.
They are just one segment of humanity, and are surrounded by persons of
other religions, backgrounds, nationalities and creeds. In fact, all
humans must face the reality that they live in a world consisting of
other humans who are to a greater or lesser degree different from
themselves. The Christian fully recognizes this reality and strives to
live in harmony and peace with all men everywhere.
The apostle Paul set some basic guidelines for how a
Christian should respond to the world around him when he says that the
true believer must live in the world (i.e., function within the society
in which he finds himself) but not be a part of those practices, actions
or attitudes that are contrary to God's way of life (I Cor. 5:9-10).
John wrote that although Christians must be "in" the world, they are not
to be "of' the world. Jesus did not pray that God should take His
disciples out of the world, but rather that God should protect them from
evil (John. 17:15).
Race Relations in the Church
Jesus Himself laid down the highest standard for a
human in relation to his fellow man when He described the second most
important command as being "you shall love your neighbor as yourself
(Mt. 22:39). This love for neighbor must transcend the human barrier of
racial, ethnic and social background. It arises above the human
weaknesses of jealousy, envy, hate and bitterness. It teaches man how to
hate the sin, but to have compassion for the sinner, and it must grow to
the place where a man will even have love for his enemies when they are
Of course, the ultimate example of Christianity for
all generations and times was set by Christ Himself, who gave His life
for all sinners. Philippians 2 shows that He emptied Himself of His
power and glory as a member of the godhead and came to the earth, not to
be served or waited upon, but as a servant of all mankind. His every
action and thought while on earth depicted the epitome of true Christian
outgoing concern; this serving attitude is perhaps best illustrated by
His willingness to die pitifully on a tree between two criminals. Thus
Jesus Himself personified the greatest love a Christian can have for
another which, by Jesus' own words, was to lay down one's life for a
Loving one's neighbor means that a Christian must not
harbor racial prejudice within his heart. The official doctrine of the
Church is that discrimination toward persons because of race or ethnic
origin is wrong and totally contrary to the teachings of the Bible.
Almighty God is the Creator of the different races of man. He puts no
spiritual distinction between these races (Acts 15:9; Gal. 3:28; etc.).
In the Kingdom of God, there will be no racial stigma of any kind. The
Church of God strives to reflect the coming Kingdom of God in its
attitudes toward race at the present time.
God is no respecter of persons; He shows no
partiality (Acts 10:34-35; Jas. 2:2). He deals justly with all men.
There is no double standard with the Almighty:
"There shall be one law for the native and
for the stranger who sojourns among you" (Ex. 12:49; cf. Num.
How to deal justly and how to love one's neighbor is
set forth plainly by Paul in Philippians 2:2-4:
"Complete my joy, by being of the same mind,
having the same love, being in full accord, and of one mind. Do
nothing from selfishness or conceit; but in humility count
others better than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to
his own interests, but also to the interests of others."
The giving of esteem, one to another, is a two-way
street. To love one's neighbor is to be concerned for his spiritual and
physical welfare. To love one's neighbor means to respect him, to admire
his accomplishments. The point of Philippians 2:2-4 is that a Christian
must radiate the attitude and the actions of unselfish service toward
his fellow man. He must esteem his fellow Christians better than
himself, because he knows his own weaknesses in contrast to his brothers
accomplishments. It is this attitude of love and concern which is
imperative if we are to have proper individual and group relationships.
Ethnic integration of the races is as much a factor
of modem western society as was integration of various ethnic groups in
the Roman society of the first century. The example of the early history
of the New Testament Church was to show no partiality between Jew, Greek
or any other ethnic group.
"Truly I perceive," said the apostle Peter, "that God
shows no partiality, but in every nation everyone who fears Him and does
what is right is acceptable to Him" (Acts 10:34-35). And again, God has
"made no distinction between us and them" (Acts 15:9; Gal. 2:11-16).
While the political situation in some few areas of
the world may require a limitation of social integration, this is not a
doctrine or overall policy of the church. In matters of church
fellowship and office, there is no discrimination because of ethnic
background. Different ethnic groups are free, of course, to preserve
their own culture and identity, including having such church-sponsored
ethnic socials as a Latin dance or a German evening. But the church does
not teach or practice a regular segregation of different ethnic groups
in its services. Members are encouraged to get to know the members of
groups in its services. Members are encouraged to get to know the
members of groups other than their own. Only then can they appreciate
the qualities of others and practice that love of one another which is
the central message of the Bible.
In matters of church fellowship and office, there
should be no discrimination because of ethnic background. The criteria
for baptism are repentance and belief. Ordination to the ministry-at
whatever level-is based on those spiritual criteria indicated in the
Bible, such as conversion and calling. Ethnic origin is no factor. This
is the present belief and practice of the church, and it holds this to
be in accord with the Bible and the mind of God.
Over the years, the term "integration" has been
tarnished with the corrosive taint of emotionally loaded epithets.
Webster's New World Dictionary defines "integrate" in the primary
sense to mean: "to make whole or complete by adding or bringing together
parts ... (secondarily) unity."
God has integrated His church to teach us His way of
harmony between peoples. It is this Christian unity, the Christian
culture and the mind of Christ, rather than the rigid ideas and
entrenched biases of men, which unites rather than separates us and
which will determine how "integrated" or fitly framed together we (the
Church of God) really are (see I Cor. 12:12-27).
Misunderstandings have often arisen from incorrectly
interpreting another's thoughts or motives about what is true
integration. When the topic of race relations is brought up, many in the
white community tend to think immediately of the question of racial
intermarriage. The black and other minority communities, by contrast,
are more concerned about having the same opportunities for education,
work, advancement and economic reward that the average white citizen
has, than about interracial marriage or ethnic assimilation.
Minority people perceive their struggle for justice,
fair play and racial equality to be life and death attempts to stay
afloat in a competitive society while shooting the rapids of racial
prejudice and injustice. Human cultures have their inherent weaknesses.
So long as this present evil world stands, there will always be unjust
weights and measures-something God Almighty hates.
Church history reveals that the attitude of
contemporary society has, to one degree or another, always been
reflected in religion. But we in the Church of God cannot allow society
to determine our racial mores and standards, nor to force us into its
mold of racial bigotry. Our conduct is rather to be exemplary of the
principles set forth in the pages of the Bible. Our unity cannot be
artificial, but a clear expression of Christian love.
Race relations in the church can be termed human
relations-the attitude, respect, appreciation and brotherhood that
should be expressed among all races. We are admonished by the Word of
God to be willing to lay down our lives for our brethren: not just
loving in word or speech, but in deed and in truth. And who are our
brethren? Christ clearly answers this for us: "For whosoever
[regardless of race] does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother,
and sister, and mother" (Mt. 12:46-50). God does not see as man
sees, nor does He look on the outward appearance.
The integrated Church of God is the herald of God's
Kingdom and a new culture, wherein God's perfect government will at once
banish racial discrimination, while urging all families of the human
race to develop to the fullest their unique ethnic human potential.
In view of the grave importance of marriage-for what
it symbolizes, for the stability of society and for the happiness of the
individual-the Church of God strongly urges that dating and marriage
emphasize similar racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. The reason
for this is to insure the greater likelihood of mutual compatibility
between marriage partners and the predictability of patterns of
appearance, talent and temperament in their children and that their
children may fit in with society more easily.
Furthermore, God created the races and national
groupings of families; He created the diversity in man to encourage the
richness of cultural experiences and to generate the combined creative
product of divine contributions to society. Consequently, God wants each
ethnic group to take pride in its own origin and heritage. In the
world tomorrow, there will be different races and nations and each will
be encouraged to maintain and strengthen its own identity and culture;
most marriages, therefore, will preserve this identity and culture by
remaining within traditional boundaries.
Wise marriages are those which match people suited
for each other. Compatibility may be determined by consideration of the
many different traits of personality, cultural background, intellect,
character and even physical features. A marriage in which neither
partner properly understands the other's language is not likely to be
the most fulfilling. The same general considerations come into question
when people of two obviously diverse racial or ethnic backgrounds
consider marriage. Two people could, hypothetically, be compatible
though of diverse racial backgrounds. In actual practice, such
differences usually imply other important differences which will compete
with rather than complement each other.
The church cannot and does not forbid people of the
same race or ethnic background to marry even when unsuited for
one another. Likewise, we cannot and do not forbid people of
different racial or ethnic backgrounds to marry even though such
marriages may not be wise. The church simply does not attempt to
regulate who one may or may not marry. (And no stigma must ever be
attached to children that may result from such a union-though in the
world they may well face social strains and heartaches.)
There is no limit to what the Holy Spirit can do
through the individual that submits himself to God. God's church is
exhorted to break the bonds of prejudice by putting on the "new man"
which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him:
"Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision
... bond or free: but Christ is all, and in all" (Col. 3:9-11); It is
the responsibility of each church member to repent of past wrong
attitudes toward those of other race or ethnic groups. We are all one in
Christ and must have that Christian love for all which only God's Spirit
Christian Responsibility in the Community
A Christian must set an example in all areas of life.
He is not blind to the evils of this society. He sees that the vast
majority of nations and individuals are living and acting in opposition
to God's perfect law. The effects of crime, pollution and immorality are
all obvious-the poor are oppressed, wars are waged, hatred between
peoples flourishes. But a Christian must differentiate between sin and
the sinner, between evil and the evildoer.
The proper attitude is for a Christian to hate the
deeds of the evildoer, but to retain love for the one who Himself set a
perfect example in this regard by deprecating sin and by giving His life
for all sinners at the same time (John. 3:16). This love for the
evildoer is not a self-righteous, condescending attitude, attitude,
however, but rather compassion for one who is essentially
ignorant of his own spiritual blindness. Indeed, every Christian himself
was and is part of this society and has been, and unfortunately all too
often still is, a partaker of its sins.
But to condemn everything the world has ever done as
"evil" would be shortsighted in the extreme, and would broadcast one's
ignorance of the vast advances mankind has made in the areas of science
and technology, medicine, art and literature, and also the good millions
have done through charity. Christians are nevertheless admonished to
avoid "worldliness." "Love not the world, neither the things that are in
the world ... For all that is in the world, the lust of the-flesh, the
lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father, but is of
the world" (I John. 2:15-16). Worldliness is partaking of the norms of
society (vanity, false pride, greed, envy, lust, strife) instead of the
godly values of love, concern, giving and helping one's neighbor. A
Christian should avoid those activities and attitudes of mind which
oppose God's law in its letter and in its intent.
The church places great stress upon the need for
Christians to serve their fellow man: "...by love serve one another. For
all the law is fulfilled in one word ... love your neighbor as yourself"
(Gal. 5:13-14). The obligation for us to "look on the needs of others"
(Phil. 2:4) extends beyond the family and the church to embrace all of
one's neighbors-indeed humanity as a whole, who do not as yet have the
blessing of knowing God's truth. Christians should "always seek to do
good to one another and to all" (I Thess. 5:15), and be zealous
for good deeds" (Tit. 2:14). A Christian is thus ultimately known by
what he does, and not alone for what he professes. "Pure
religion," as defined in James 1:27, "is to visit the fatherless and
widows." Caring for the needy, or neglecting too, is tantamount to doing
the same to Christ, according to Jesus' own words (Mt. 25:31-46). The
church acknowledges that the need to serve one's fellow man should be
filled both by the individual himself, and by the collective body of
believers, the church. All persons need to be "rich in good works, ready
to distribute" (I Tim. 6:18). in his own private life.
One outstanding example is that of the "good"
Samaritan in Luke 10:29-37. This story was used by Christ to expound the
second great commandment, and to define "who is my neighbor"; thus, the
Christian learns whom he should serve. Jesus' point is that anyone in
need is our neighbor, and believers have a duty to help others in such
spontaneous one-on-one situations. We are encouraged by God's Word to
earn extra money for the sole purpose "that he may have to give to him
that needeth" (Eph. 4:28). Likewise, those employed in certain
service-oriented positions in society should use their individual
opportunity to exert extra effort to improve the welfare of their fellow
citizens within and without the Church of God.
Jesus told His disciples-and by direct extension He
is telling all Christians-"You are the light of the world. A city set on
a hill cannot be hid. Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a bushel,
but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. Let your light
so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to
your Father who is in heaven (Matt. 5:14-16). What "good works" is Jesus
referring to? It cannot be the "good works" of prayer, Bible study,
fasting, etc.-these must be done in private and not before men (Matt.
6:1-2). Obviously, the "good works" that Christians can do which
non-Christians will praise must reflect a genuine, unfeigned outgoing
concern for other people.
The church as a whole has an affirmative biblical responsibility to
serve the nonbeliever by demonstrating its collective outgoing
concern for the surrounding community. Since the church is a body
with "many members," it develops the strength from those members to
accomplish with an integrated, organized structure much more good for
society and civilization than could its individual members accomplish by
The local church congregation, as the microcosm of
the whole Church of God in the local community, should extend itself in
whatever way will best serve its neighbor such as through programs to
help the elderly, the sick and the blind. Such activities may vary from
two church members simply volunteering their time to major church
sponsored events. During time of disaster, emergency, or other special
need, the membership should be willing to help with whatever physical
and spiritual needs are made manifest. Each church congregation should
strive to establish itself as a respected, giving part of the
community, whose every motive and action is that of helping, serving and
encouraging-in every way setting a positive example of the true
Christian way of life. The church strives to carry out the apostle
Paul's admonition: "As we therefore have opportunity, let us do good to
A Christian is also aware of his civic
responsibilities and privileges. Paul wrote that Christians should be
subject to the constituted human authorities. This included paying taxes
and rendering due respect to the symbols of that authority (Rom. 13:1
ff). Jesus Himself paid a tax which He legitimately could have avoided
(Matt. 17:24-27). Joseph and Mary went to Bethlehem because of the edict
of the Roman emperor. The New Testament is filled with such examples of
complying with government legislation and national custom where they did
not conflict with God's laws. Church of God members have always shown
patriotism by saluting the flag and singing the national anthem of their
In some countries, voting is put on a par with other
governmental requirements. The New Testament no more prohibits voting
than it does paying taxes. The church does not attempt to legislate in
the matter of voter registration or voting in local, regional or
The Church as an organization does not enter into
this world's political affairs. It does not support any political party,
nor attempt to influence its members to support or not support any issue
or person. Of course, the church's values are well known in the
community, and its very existence should therefore strengthen the
support for moral decency, obedience to the constituted authorities and
The church continues to stress the transient nature
of earthbound political institutions. The Kingdom of God is not going to
be voted in by men, but forcibly established by Jesus Christ. When the
time comes, "The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of the
Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever" (Rev.
11:15). This is the ultimate goal of the Christian, and it is toward
that eternal kingdom that he should expend his greatest efforts.
Jesus Christ said, "My kingdom is not of this world."
The kingdom a Christian looks and longs for is an eternal kingdom or
government, not a temporal, physical, human one. Yet when Jesus said His
disciples are not of this world, He also recognized all
Christians are citizens of one of the many countries in the world.
Neither does this negate the principle of having our "citizenship [state
or country] ... in heaven" (Phil. 3:20, NIV). The apostle Paul, who
wrote the preceding statement about our true citizenship was himself a
physical Roman citizen (Acts 22:25-28).
Another area of civic concern is that of holding
public office and serving on juries. The church in no way prohibits its
members from such activities, and indeed the community would be well
served by having true Christians fulfilling these functions. There are
cautions here; Christians may find making certain judgments and
rendering specific decisions difficult, because the laws of God can
conflict with the laws of men, and their primary responsibility must be,
to the former. Also, one who may serve (or wish to serve) in an elected
governmental capacity must not involve himself with unchristain
practices commonly associated with politics. No Christian should ever
consciously compromise his inviolate values of love for God, fidelity to
God's law and love for one's neighbor equal to himself. Nonetheless, the
biblical examples of Joseph ruling Egypt and Daniel ruling Babylon are
powerful statements about the capacity and opportunity of a true servant
of God to serve (albeit rarely) in responsible governmental positions,
even though their governments were still of this world.
Associated with jury duty is the question of whether
a Christian should seek legal redress through the legal system. I
Corinthians 6:1-9 categorically states that a Christian should not go to
court against a fellow Christian. It says to do so is a "shame" (v. 5)
and the one who does so has "[done] wrong" (I Cor. 6:8). Matthew
18:15-20 adds that a Christian who feels that he has been wronged by his
brother should approach that brother personally to resolve the problem.
If the brother will not hear, he should take one or two witnesses and
approach the man again. If he will still not respond, the injured party
should take the matter to the officials of the church where a judgment
can be made. (There are, of course, areas over which the civil
authorities have total authority, i.e., the legal granting of divorce;
in such cases, the civil courts must be resorted to, but only after all
Christian duties toward a brother or a sister have been fulfilled.)
The question of whether a Christian should take a
non-Christian to court is more complex. Obviously, a Christian should
still use the same basic approach outlined in Matthew 18-first trying to
resolve the issue between him and the offending party. However, it is
equally obvious that a non-Christian will not abide by, or submit
himself to, the authority of the Christian's church. This means that if
a matter is still unresolved, a Christian may take a legal dispute to
the recognized civil authorities (to whose authority the non-Christian
will, of course, have to submit). The question of whether a Christian
should take one to court under these circumstances must be an
individual decision, based upon a balance between the principles of
Christian forgiveness. and the man's responsibility to maintain his own
integrity and rights before the laws of God and of man.
Questions also arise about a Christian's
responsibility toward military service. It is axiomatic that human
welfare and the attitudes behind it are the exact antithesis of
God's law and the Christian way of life (Jas. 4:1-2). Therefore, a
Christian, who must put God's laws before man's (Acts 5:29), can in no
way conscientiously participate in warfare. A Christian's firm
conviction in this regard in no way negates his feelings of loyalty to
his country, nor lessens the amount of positive Christian service he is
willing to render for his country. His loyalty is, however, even deeper
to his God and to his religious beliefs, and it is to God that he must
be loyal when conflict between God and man arises (Acts 5:29). True
patriotism thus puts one's country second only to one's God.
In summary, we as Christians and brothers of Christ
must follow His example of genuine outgoing concern for our neighbor in
our thoughts, actions and attitudes. This love for our fellow human
being is far from being merely an emotional feeling in our hearts, but
it is the very real act of living as servants by following the examples
of Jesus Himself.
