Remembering for the Future

A powerful story from: Together for the Gospel: Remembering for the Future.

Useful to remember that James Smith would not have been recognised by many Churches of the day as having a right to preach or have leadership in the Church. Yet the Church has re-evaluated scripture and now recognises the wrong that was done in the past. The T4G statement specifically repents of the injustice done to African-Americans in the name of the gospel in article XVII.

Yet the same Christians that recognise this wrong understanding of the Bible from the past now insist that their similar understanding regarding the role of women is not flawed.

How long before we can all rewrite Article XVI in the light of Article XVII (in the T4G statement).
