But when Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned. For before certain men came from James, he was eating with the Gentiles; but when they came he drew back and separated himself, fearing the circumcision party. And the rest of the Jews acted hypocritically along with him, so that even Barnabas was led astray by their hypocrisy.
Racism in America could have been different. Leaders could have come together. Churches could have come together. We could have listened to one another in ways that Christ taught us. Yet, we see that even in the New Testament, even after we know what's right and good according to all the walls of separation that Christ tore down, we still struggle in coming together in unity around the table. We see Jesus through whatever lens we have grown up with and we need to begin to listen and be the people now that God will make us one day.
