Let’s Get This Done

From my message today:

Race divided the Pentecostal church. From the beginning. What was powerful at Azusa Street was ripped away by the racism of America. The Assemblies of God became white. Church of God in Christ became black.

The A/G had policies in place through the 1960s and even the 1970s in some places that would not allow blacks to be ordained in the A/G. We “encouraged” them to go to COGIC. For all the hollering I’ve watched some A/G pastors do in social media about Dr. Wood bowing to cultural pressure, it is not Dr. Wood who has bowed. It was the A/G for decades that bowed to white privilege pressure. WE were the ones in sin.
