We are discussing this afternoon the subject of Immutable Promises which are immeasurable from a natural stand point. We think this is a very significant subject at this time because in the past few weeks there has been some interesting positions taken by some ecclesiastical leaders inside this nation. We call them leaders only because they have been selected by some, or have been exalted into this position. In the areas of the Union theological Seminary and in some other areas of ecclesiasticism in the Nation they have been discussing things which are important foundations for Christians, and things which should be understood, and among these subjects the question they were trying to resolve was whether it was important for people to have any traditional ethnic background, or whether a persons background by race or culture made any difference whatsoever as to their relationship to the religious activities of the church or to any of these processes.
They stressed that the important thing which they wanted to get across was that it made no difference as to anyone’s race, or cultural background, or their previous religious status, or as far as that was concerned, even their temporary religious convictions, as long as they showed an interest in the acceptance of Christian values. Then they said that these principal Christian values are the general acceptance of the Fatherhood of God, the brotherhood of man, and the desire to do things that are good. This is the position that they stated.
