No condemnation

Dear Woke Christian,

You’ve heard it before, but today let’s look at it again. Romans 8:1-2, let’s go!

Life in the Spirit

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.  For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.

You’ll have to go back to chapter 7 to see what the “therefore” is therefore, but I wan to focus on one area. We can no longer be condemned. We are in Christ and our sin debt has been paid and removed. We would you want to go back into a system that heaps huge burdens on others and yourself when you could invite them into a situation where their condemnation can be removed. John 3:18 says that ALL people are under a sentence of condemnation. But in Christ that sentense has been lifted and we now walk uncondemned and free.

Why aren’t your CRT teachers declairing the freedom we have in Christ? Why aren’t they seeing the Gospel as a beautiful gift to take out to all people groups and an opportunity to grow Christ’s church?

Bring us the BOOK!

Dear Woke Christain,

I had a wonderful text message conversaiton with gentleman who disagreed wtih my assessment of CRT. There is no issue with disagreement. As I told him I want to be right only as far as I’m biblical. I don’t want to argue a point that the scriptures don’t speak or sit quietly on a topic area that the scriptuers do address.

The gentleman gave me some great verses to look at, and for the the next few posts I’ll address each one in it’s own post. I hope we can continue to rap, I’m looking forward to jumping into the Book! Let’s do this.

Liberation vs Freedom

Dear Woke Christian,

I realize that you may or may not even know about “liberation theology”. It would be a religious forerunner to CT which is of course is a forefunner to CRT. Well, I ran across this video and this guy nails it. Since he supports LT he does a great job of pointing out it’s “merits”. If you listen to this 3 min video you’ll probably see the areas of conflict this teaching has with the Bible. That’s my point in sharing this. LT and it’s offshoots fly right in the face of biblical teaching. They’re not found in, they have to be read into the Bible.

In this short insightful video did you notice that they man gave no scripture for his claims and it would be very easy to agree with this idea without looking at scripture.

In Matthew 26:11 Jesus said that we’d always have the poor with us. The powerful point is that He said this to someone who complained that the perfume the woman annointed Him with could’ve been spent on the poor. So the idea that God is seeking to do eradicate poverty isn’t supported by scripture.

Leviticus 19:14-16 says something very interesting about the “God of the marginalized” idea. “You shall do no injustice in court. You shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor.” And just incase you think this is just OT, Paul makes a very bold statement about supporting those who can work, but won’t in 2 Thessalonians 3:9-11.

Please hear me, it is good to help and support those who do not have. Keep in mind Jesus helped us in providing us Salvation that we could’ve never acheieved. The eradication of poverty isn’t the goal. Think about it, would Christ have had to die for liberation theology to be true? What did Christ add to this guys 3 minute explaination. Nothing.

Christ has set us free

Dear Woke Christian,

I’ve said it before that CRT is a remix of the “Galatian’s heresy”. Take the time to read through the controvery at Galatia and you’ll see it. For today’s discuss, however I just want to focus on chapter 5 verse 1.

Christ Has Set Us Free

For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit  again to a yoke of slavery.

We see here that Paul has a solid grasp on Matt. 11:29 and makes it clear that our yolk of bondage has been removed by Christ. The bondage of sin done to me, sin done by me, the burden of sin doggin me at every corner, the burden of knowing I’m going to have to answer for my sin before God, all of it’s been removed.

Why do you seek to be burdened down again by the yolk of bondage to “sin”? Your CRT teachers are laying huge burdens on you and others in the Body of Christ. Jesus had some harsh words for folk who did that (Matt 23:1-5). You’re already free. CRT doesn’t make that anymore true, it actually burdens and binds you again.

Sinning to sin

Dear Woke Christian,

Let’s take a moment to talk about the James. Yes, that James, the half brother of Jesus. Here’s James 2:1-13

The Sin of Partiality
2 My brothers, show no partiality as you hold the faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory. 2 For if a man wearing a gold ring and fine clothing comes into your assembly, and a poor man in shabby clothing also comes in, 3 and if you pay attention to the one who wears the fine clothing and say, “You sit here in a good place,” while you say to the poor man, “You stand over there,” or, “Sit down at my feet,” 4 have you not then made distinctions among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? 5 Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him? 6 But you have dishonored the poor man. Are not the rich the ones who oppress you, and the ones who drag you into court? 7 Are they not the ones who blaspheme the honorable name by which you were called?

8 If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. 9 But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. 10 For whoever keeps the whole law but fails in one point has become guilty of all of it. 11 For he who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” If you do not commit adultery but do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty. 13 For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

If you survey the scriptures you’ll find that NO WHERE is there a sin of “racism”. Check me, please, I will wait. There is, however, a sin of partiality and James, inspired by the Holy Spirit, knew it was so important that he wrote 13 verses on it. As you read the passage it had to have hit you that you’re guilty of partiality trying to call out “the sin of racism”. Your teachings are actually leading you INTO sin not from it. Add to it that you often have to slander someone to call them “racist” and you’re now heaping sin upon sin.

I write DWC, because I care about you and Christ’s church. I know that CRT is a pagan doctirne. I can’t root it out of society and culture. However, I would be unloving and caring if I didn’t say that it’s a false relgion and has no place in the Church of Christ. He died to reconcile us to Himself and to one another. The Gospel is suficient. Read my previous blog posts on that.

There is enough information out there, now. I’m begging you to read up on this and to see that you’ve been duped. CRT is leading you into sin all while saying it’s not. They’re not telling you the truth and you can see it clearly in James.

Pass the mic

Dear Woke Christain,

We’ve said before that CRT is a raging dumpster fire of inconsistency. I find this video to be a great example of that.

The “safe black person” narrative is very destructive to the Body of Christ. It assumes the worse of people without any evidence. It also seeks to further separate the Body based on externals which Christ never told us to do.

What do you think? Let’s talk about it below.

Allen Parr

Dear Woke Christian,

Allen Parr at the BEAT YouTube channel gave a very fair review of BLM. The same analysis could be given to CRT as well.

His summary statement was that Christ should rule over culture. That’s quite interesting because so many have conflated CRT to be the Gospel or Christ would support the culture. Let’s talk about it.
