16 For we did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. 17 For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”— 18 and we ourselves heard this utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. 2 Peter 1:16-18 (NASB)
I have been doing as much research as I can into what many are calling “Wokeism.” Of course that is just a term for the movement the proponents of it call Social Justice. The mechanisms behind it are complex and go back pretty far in history and are rooted partially in Marxism, but mostly in the teachings of Paul-Michel Foucault….
He was a French philosopher. Foucault’s theories primarily address the relationship between power and knowledge, and how they are used as a form of social control through societal institutions. Though often cited as a post-structuralist and postmodernist, Foucault rejected these labels. His thought has influenced academics, especially those working in communication studies, anthropology, sociology, criminology, cultural studies, literary theory, feminism, Marxism, and critical theory. It is from his work that we have the two-headed Satanic monster plaguing our society today, Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality. Proponents of this reject all ability to know objective truth. In fact, they decry that it even exists. Instead, they elevate subjective truth as what is knowable and, therefore, what is true for you may not be true for me, etc. What should trouble all of us who have faith is that the goal of these people is to topple all of our societal values and structures and replace them with the madness of Intersectional tyranny. If that is not Satanic I don’t know what is.
