Black and Enchained: Unity and The Chains of Evangelical Republicanism

I am often told by those who belong to the majority culture, that it is ethnic idolatry to consider myself an African-American Christian rather than just a Christian.

The Power to Love

I felt like I lost my power to love last year. If love was a bank, my account felt like it became overdraft on November 9th.
