Abstract 

Pastor Charles Duke asserted in this sermon that Christianity does not require its followers to end racial segregation. He did not view racial integration as a beneficial advancement for African-Americans; conversely, he did not believe that segregation was a negative force in society. Duke saw instances when he believed racial integration did not work because it resulted in "abnormal conditions in which both races suffer." Duke compared different racial groups in Christianity to parts of the body, which needed to work separately to produce overall spiritual unity.
