“Before one embraces the full ideas of systemic racism and white privilege it would be a good idea to consider the reality that such terms are pregnant with much political baggage and have been constructed from a political environment that has depended upon such theories and ideas in order to fuel cultural movements. That pattern continues today with the social justice movement.”
(Josh Buice – Founders Ministries) We are living in a post-Christian society. After being greatly influenced by the ideas of post-modernism our culture is in the midst of a great sexual and moral revolution.
The mob mentality of anger-filled leftist students seeks to control university campuses and our culture as a whole can’t figure out how to say “no” to any group—resulting in men who pretend to be women dominating athletic competitions, homosexuals demanding a new definition for marriage, a new women’s empowerment agenda, and the outright celebration of victimhood.
The social justice train is moving at such a rapid pace that when it derails (not if, but when)—the crash will be so catastrophic that our culture and our churches will never be the same again in America. At the heart of this whole debacle is the race issue. In many ways, the race issue has been turned into a weaponized form of social justice reform that is seeking to gain political power and control.
How should we address it? With all of this social justice rhetoric and call to reform, why are we not seeing great advancements and unity within evangelical circles? Could it be that the solution being offered by many evangelical voices today is actually stoking the fires of controversy rather than offering the healing balm of God’s sufficient Word?
