Weekly recap

This week was busy. I didn’t do as many shorts, but I did get some great videos done. Most will be released next week. I also was able to screen my first supporters special. I had a sit-down chat with my pastor that I streamed to my “Buy me a coffee” supporters. I even had a co-host!

I also was able to start scripting for a new “Context” video. A lot of CRT/SJ stems from out-of-context passages or just plain closed Bibles. I hope to be able to stir the hearts and minds of believers to not fall for this very sneaky ploy. I was able to create the slides for the video, which I think will be very helpful.

Summer is in full swing! My DD1 is on her way to a college 2-week camp while DD2 is wrapping up VBS and preparing for her own adventures next week.

What can I do about my channel?

Here are some ideas that you can employ. Rather than worrying about sub count focus on improving what you’re offering your viewers and ultimately your subscribers. Let’s go!

Improve your thumbnails

Add chapters to every interview video or AMA video

Create “Shorts” that showcase content

Make “Clips” that point to your longer-form content

Write a blog post about your most recent videos

These are just a few ideas. What do you think? Feel free to add more ideas below.

You can “buy me a cup of coffee”

I am making a big push to upgrade my recording studio. I have not given up on writing. I am just finding the engagement and back and forth for my videos to be rich. You’re welcome to join in via https://www.buymeacoffee.com/dearwokech

Next month I will be starting a “Memorization Monday” segment. I’ll start with the books of the Bible and move on to verses and even entire passages.

Thank you for your support and encouragement.

The hand of God

Dear Woke Christian,

I get it, now. It is really easy to see the issues of the past and even today and “know” they’re racist. I get it.

There is one slight issue and it’s buggered me for a while. In this world view there is no hand of God. In order to buy into “woke Christianity” I have to deny that God is working all things for my good. And by all I mean all. So basically to embrace a form of deoism to be down with Wokeanda. I mention this because I’ve been reading up on The Reformation in England and Europe as a whole. For a while I’ve wondered “why” so much was happening there rather than other parts of the world or region. But to ask that question I’d need to go back to Abraham and ask if there wasn’t a sun-worshipper in South America God could’ve used. Or if there wasn’t a guy wiht a propencity to follow directions in Middle Africa. I mean are you telling me that there were NO qualified “fathers of the faith” in Asia? Really?

But that’s the rub. It’s God’s redemptive story being played out to his perfect script. For whatever reason He chose to move in this way. And similarly He chose to use Europe as the springboard for much of what we understand today. Does that take away from any of the advancements of other cultures? No, not at all. It only shows that Psalm 115:3 is true. Our God does sit in the Heavans and He does do whatever He pleases.

Naw, I am going to pass. I can see God moving all of creation, even the bad things in His perfect plan. So I take it back, I don’t get it. I don’t get it at all.

The tale of three churches

Dear Woke Christian,

Earlier I told you that we had “examples” in the Bible and I want to share what I mean. The Corinthians were putting a lot of attention on gifts of the Spirit. They had gone so far as to ignore the fruit of the Spirit going after the gifts. The Galatians were putting an emphesis on adding rituals to God’s free grace in Christ. They already had salvation in Him, but they wanted to hedge their bets, I guess. The Colossians were adding rules and regulations to the life of the Christian. None of these gifts, rituals or rules were approved by God and addressed very sternly by Paul.

CRT is the perfect mix of all three churches. Gifts, what can I get for me. Use your “privlege” to help me. Rituals, what are you doing for me. Maybe it’s a symbol or a colored flag. Somehow you need to show that you support me. Rules people have done certain things and they need to follow these steps to make it right.

Each of these three churches received harsh rebukes from Paul for adding to the Gospel. That’s the point that I beleive CRT people don’t realize. They’re adding to the Gospel. It’s “Jesus +” It sounds like this. Yeah, you can be a Christian, but are you promoting this conference speaker? Or, I get that you’re a Christian and all, but you’re not flying the BLM flag. I know you’re supposed to be my brother or sister in Christ, but are you doing the work of anti-Racism? There are a miriade of things that have been added, but at the end of the day they’re a false Gospel. I’ll let Paul say it, Oh foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Gal 3:1

We have examples

Dear Woke Christian,

Have you ever thought about the examples given in the Bible? We have a TON! It’s almost like God wanted us to see and avoid or follow these people, groups, churches and the such.

So I want you to think about the churches in Corinth, Galatia, and Collesae. Take some time and read up on them. This week I’m going to share why these three books in the bible are very key in showing that we don’d need CRT. See you soon.
