Quote of the Week

"If there is any fault in the modern Christian, it is a lack of understanding of what Christ was talking about. Many see Jesus Christ only as an extension of themselves, hindered by the same worries and prejudices. As long as this type of thinking continues, Christ will remain to many people only a Jewish philosopher who taught a rather interesting philosophy of love two thousand years ago, and nothing more. Can Christianity work? Rather, let us ask, has it been tried?"

Ircel Harrison, Coordinator of the Tennessee Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, commenting on the topic of Christian Ethics and Racial Discrimination

I wrote this in 1965 as a college senior as I was attempting to develop a consistent Christian ethic in relationship to race. At the time, I was attending a segregated school in the south! My own words continue to be a challenge to me.
