In this post, Owen Strachan argues, “while wokeness supposedly shares a vision for equity and virtue, it is radically different from Scripture and the biblical worldview. When you actually delve into woke literature, and when you study Critical Race Theory and intersectionality in particular, you come away shocked by what you see in many senses.”
Owen Strachan recently delivered a series of six talks on Christianity & Wokeness which you can find below.
In this interview, non-SBC author Sean Collins interviews Joseph Bottum regarding how, “Woke anti-racism certainly appears to have taken on the trappings of religion. White people have been seen washing the feet of black people and asking for forgiveness, a ritual firmly in line with the Christian tradition. And terms like ‘white guilt’ and ‘white privilege’ are treated much as Original Sin used to be – things for which humanity must forever atone.”
In this article, non-SBC author Erick Erickson writes, “Some churches are so focused on empathizing with sinners they’re turning a blind eye to sin…. Wokeness is not really about injustice. It is about power.”
In this article, Mark Devine addresses a statement from Drew Brees and explains, “Brees’ words violated dogmas of the largest, fastest growing religious group in America — the Church of the Left — the Woke Church. Once he’d uttered those words, church inquisitors cornered Brees with mechanical efficiency and his public doctrinal examination commenced.”
In this article, non-SBC author Rod Dreher explains, “I received the following e-mail from a reader, in response to my “Race, Identity Politics, and Evangelicalism” post. He gives me permission to use it, so long as I keep his name out of it. There’s a lot to think about here. By publishing it, I’m not necessarily endorsing his conclusions. I just think there’s something here worth considering.“
In this thread, Josh Daws addresses what is, “a common misconception that the concern about Critical Theory in the church is *really* about promoting Trumpism and right-wing politics.”
