Crump on Unity in Christ

“In Christ there is a new humanity, a new community, where our identity is defined by the calling of the cross. In Christ the ruling paradigm is that there is no separation; we must, in fact, move beyond integration. And if you think for a second this means we should all just become the same, think again. This is not some attempt at assimilation or manufactured community. The gospel unites us in Christ despite our differences. In fact, the gospel drives us to celebrate our differences as the diversity-strewn beauty from the Lord’s creative hand. And if that is true, then what distinction can we make? Who are our people, our kind? How can we be united in Christ but divided in His family? Living that way would be a mockery of the gospel.”
