Dear Woke Christian,

My birthday is tomorrow. I’m not telling you that for you to give me a gift, but you know if you want to…..

I wanted to point something out. Every year for the last 3 years my pastor has taken me to lunch on my birthday. Last year we ate BBQ sitting on our car bumpers being all socially distant and stuff. This year since I’m not going to be in town, he’s bringing lunch over. Since I WFH I have to get somethings done before I “wheels up” this afternoon.

My pastor is white. We joke about our racial differences. We comment about how unique each of our cultures are. Our kids love one another. He really pastors my family and it’s all good. Before you interject some “white guilt” or some CRTism into the mix just ask yourself this. Which looks more like what Christ asked us to do? Is it more consistent with God’s revealed word for him to come over, have lunch, laugh and talk or is it more consistent for me to look at him side-eyed and call into question everything he does?

Many supporters of CRT LOVE to talk about how we’re supposed to reflect Heaven on earth. Yet, in the same breath seek to divide the Church based on external, non-controlable circumstances. That doesn’t work!

Woke Christian, drop the “woke” and embrace Christ fully and completely. You’ll be following Christ then. Besides you might get a good lunch out the deal.
