"God is up to something big in this world, and it includes those from every tribe and tongue. It always has, and it always will. And so if any group of people ought to embody diversity, it's the church. The events in Charlottesville only highlight a problem that is as old as the church itself—a problem which led Paul to remind the church: "Far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Galatians 6:14). When we understand that our justification, our righteousness, and even our inherent value are not contingent upon our race, our nationality, or our cultural background but on the finished work of Christ, we can be free to live as a beautifully diverse and unified family of God."
