Bishop Michael Curry gave the new royal couple a foundation of love
The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 15 denominations and 15.7 million African Americans, commends both the future King of England, Harry, and the new African Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, in their Holy nuptials. It was a spectacle for the world to witness that African blood has now invaded the royal lineage of the House of Windsor and no one can do anything about it other than what Bishop Curry said — love.
The Black Church is never naive to the hatred of the races. Even among all of this beauty and pageantry, some of those white English subjects and former subjects (Americans) are filled with hatred because an African woman with the blood of her ancestors, which represents the first human on earth, is now permanently in the royal line of the House of Windsor. But, the African royal line is the first.
Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative says, “Marriage is God’s Commandment and love is the foundation of all marriages. Those who were married outside of God and outside of love do not have a marriage. The National Black Church Initiative has always advocated for a Biblical marriage between one woman and one man. This is why it breaks our heart for those young women who have decided on homosexuality. There is no way that they can become a princess because they would have married outside of God’s love. The importance of marriage is to signify the love of God. It is not to defy the will of God.”
Bishop Michael Curry, in his sermon, spoke eloquently about the power of love. One of the essences of the character of love is that it is so powerful and so transforming that as mere humans we can only possess a portion of storge, philia, eros, and agape. As a man of God, I must challenge all those who will wish this union their hatred because of the presence of African blood that they will never fully understand the power of God’s love, and love in general because they are blocking it with their hatred.
The sermon by Bishop Curry was divinely inspired so that the whole world could hear him because God is love.
