“Red Letter Christians” – focus primarily, sometimes exclusively, on the words of Christ (clearly identifiable in so-called Red Letter editions of the New Testament). There’s nothing particularly wrong with investing time and study in the statements of Jesus, but we do have some concern, notably the contrast with…
“Black Letter Christians” – focus on the entire word of God. After all, we read in John 1:1 that “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Christ, as the incarnate Word (“the Word was made flesh” – Jn. 1:14) represents the TOTALITY of Scripture, given to make us fully equipped (ἐξαρτίζω – exartizō) for “every good work” – 2 Tim. 3:17. In a real sense, the Word (Christ) is every God-breathed syllable (2 Tim. 3:16), from Gen. 1:1 through Rev. 22:21!
“White Letter Christians” – are the most dangerous, because they “read between the lines,” adding to God’s perfect, complete revelation (2 Pet. 1:3 – He “has given all things that pertain to life and godliness”, 2 Tim. 3:16 – “All Scripture is…profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”). Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, John provides a stern warning for such practices in Rev. 22:18: “For I testify together to everyone who hears the Words of the prophecy of this Book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add on him the plagues that have been written in this Book.”
So, what “color” Christian are YOU?!
