    Oneness Embraced by Tony Evans

    The reason we haven't solved the race problem in America after hundred's of years is that people apart from God are trying to create unity, while people under God who already have unity are not living out the unity we possess. ~ Tony Evans

    Oneness Embraced by Tony Evans is a fresh look at reconciliation, the kingdom, and justice, through his eyes. If you desire to become more like Jesus, to develop unity among your brothers and sisters in the Lord of all races, then you must read this book! The author does not ask that we become color blind or discontinue our cultural differences, but embrace, and unite, as brothers and sisters in the Lord, learning from one another, not only to each others for Christ, but also to unite us as one in Christ. Tony Evans shared many examples of interracial events which for the moment brought the body of Christ together with fire that burned out as soon as we returned to our communities. Sadly, I too have witnessed this. Instead, he encourages followers of Christ to come together so that unbelievers will see that Christ can overcome misguided beliefs in our families, churches, and communities.

    In my lifetime of attending church, I have heard ministers call for people to repent of every sin under the sun, except for racism. The myth of black inferiority has been a cultural lie that has corrupted our churches and even some of the Bibles we use, such as Scofield's incorrect notes on the Curse of Ham. This lie from satan has kept the black community from fully embracing their heritage and has even been used by churches, especially in the southern states, to divide and cause disharmony among the body of Christ. Instead, the author encourages blacks to see themselves through the lens of Scripture, learning that God used blacks in a mighty way throughout the Scriptures, even in the earthly lineage of Christ, and in turn receive significance and respect as part of God's creation.

    I appreciate and also encourage Tony Evan's word, to my Angelo brothers and sisters in Christ to, at least, seek out ways to be discipled and taught by black preachers in the church body-either through books, radio, TV, sermon downloads, or online viewing of sermons.

    The conclusion of this book is most powerful. We are urged to implement Biblical justice through restitution, reconciliation, and responsibility. Tony Evans is equally critical of the Black and Angelo churches who reach out and embrace their own race, and states that society outside of the church has been faster to unite than God's people. He shares many ways to bring together the racial divide through The Turn Around Agenda, and provides examples how we might copy this program in our communities.

    Heaven awaits for all who have accepted God's Son, Jesus Christ, red and yellow, black and white. The church needs to begin to be the church outside of the four walls we call our sanctuary. Many have found ways to do this, but as a nation, we have a long way to go. The answer is not in our government but in Jesus Christ. His love that brings about the power of oneness mirrors the heart of God. As the author stated in closing:
    It is true, we may not be able to save everyone.
    But it matters, to every one who is saved, that we tried.
