Dear Woke Christian,
I’ve been encouraging you to look into a matter and evaluate it in light of scripture. Today I’m going to point go through a video with you so that we can better understand how CRT is invading the Church.
Let’s look into Florida pastor
Betrayal and Arrest of Jesus
18 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples across the brook Kidron, where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered. 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew the place, for Jesus often met there with his disciples. 3 So Judas, having procured a band of soldiers and some officers from the chief priests and the Pharisees, went there with lanterns and torches and weapons. 4 Then Jesus, knowing all that would happen to him, came forward and said to them, “Whom do you seek?” 5 They answered him, “Jesus of Nazareth.” Jesus said to them, “I am he.”[a] Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them. 6 When Jesus[b] said to them, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground. 7 So he asked them again, “Whom do you seek?” And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.” 8 Jesus answered, “I told you that I am he. So, if you seek me, let these men go.” 9 This was to fulfill the word that he had spoken: “Of those whom you gave me I have lost not one.” 10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant[c] and cut off his right ear. (The servant’s name was Malchus.) 11 So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup that the Father has given me?” *emphasis mine ESV
We’ve heard the sermon snippet as well as the read the bible passage. I added the full chapter of John as well as Acts 2 passage for reference as well.
To start off the question has to be asked, where did the whole idea of “privilege”, “alliship”, “person of color” all come from? You don’t see it in the passage at all. Though I do believe that these men were “highly melanated” is that apart of the text? You have to agree that this is added and must more akin to modern language than the text allows. We don’t know anything this guy spoke about.
Something else to consider is that CRT is promoted as a “lens” to see the Word of God through. That’s a very problematic way to approach the scriptures. We’d never agree to use a comic book to view the Bible through. We’d never, hopefully agree to use a filth magazine as a lens to see the Bible through. So even if the the comic or other literature is true they don’t rule of the scriptures. Then why in the world would be use a world view that conflicts with scriptures to govern scriptures? You noticed many of the CRT terms in this snippet. Since he’s embraced CRT he can’t help, but reinterpret the Bible through CRT lens. This is a problem.
