Abstract 

The author discusses the harmful effects of racial segregation on Christian churches in America. He referred to segregation as a spiritual "sickness" that afflicted the Church and led the faithful away from God. He called on the Church to proclaim Christ's Gospel message of equality especially during this time of racial conflict. He emphasized the hypocrisy of the Christian missionary movement, which sought to baptize non-whites and was sponsored by the very churches that would not admit non-white worshippers in America.
