Here is the path to better understand the Marxist nature of these ideologies. Neo-Marxist Herbert Marcuse and Antonio Gramsci laid the foundation of what is known as cultural Marxism. Mike Gonzalez has written a book, The Plot to Change America: How Identity Politics is Dividing the Land of the Free. He is also a policy expert at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C. He explains that Marcuse taught critical race theorist Angela Davis at Brandeis University. Significant as well, Angela Davis was the Communist Party’s candidate for Vice President in 1980 and 1984. Continue reading →
The color-blind principle does not mean we do not see a person’s skin color or detect that others are different from us (also referred to as color-indifference). Our church has about ten different ethnicities at any given time, although the particular ethnicities have varied over the years. I assure you that everyone can tell whether we are talking to a Chinese, Indian, black, white, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Korean, or another ethnic person. Continue reading →
Robin DiAngelo’s best-selling book, White Fragility, is used in educational, corporate, and government sensitivity training to advance so-called social justice. White children in schools and white adults in government and businesses are told they are racists because they are white, and they must work at becoming less white. She tells white people to get over their white fragility (unwillingness to admit they are racists) and says, “I strive to be ‘less white.’ To be less white is to be less racially oppressive.” To make it clearer that white people are inherently and, therefore, irredeemably white supremacists, DiAngelo says, “A positive white identity is an impossible goal. White identity is inherently racist.” The racism of white people being inherent means it cannot be overcome. Continue reading →
Presidential candidate Mike Stone, along with fifty other original signers, will jointly present the following Resolution against the use of critical race theory and intersectionality (CRT/I) at the Southern Baptist Convention, June 13-16, Nashville, Tenn. This Resolution is to be presented in order to repudiate and lessen the damage done by the 2019 Resolution 9, which affirmed CRT/I as supplemental and helpful “analytical tools” to be used along with the Bible in dealing with the race issues of our day.
I am thankful to have been one of the original signatories of this Resolution, and I am grateful for Mike Stone’s biblical, clear, and courageous leadership.
I want to set the record straight on the appropriateness of using cultural Marxism and social justice interchangeably. Below is a list of thirty brief reasons why we not only can use the two terms interchangeably but, for clarity’s sake regarding the nature of social justice as presently promoted, we should do so. To fail to expose the true nature of Social Justice is to fail to speak the truth.
Additionally, it is worth noting that scholars like Peter W. Wood, President of the National Association of Scholars, uses the term “cultural Marxist” to refer to Marxists and social justice advocates that support the 1619 Project.
Dr. Russell Moore is the head of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. Moore’s accommodation of the homosexual community is related to reparative therapy (RT). RT is a term for various therapies or Christian approaches that provide help to those with varying degrees of involvement in homosexuality so they can contentedly live as a heterosexual for those who desire to do so. Dr. Nicolosi is the originator of RT. He began his work in 1981. He said RT “was aimed at people who do not identify with their same-sex attractions.” It was designed only for those who desire change. Both Nicolosi’s work and Christian ministry approaches believe change is possible, but rely heavily upon the desire of the individual for success. The same is true of evangelism. While change is available, the person’s desire is essential. Continue reading →
Our culture has descended from recognizing the biblical understanding of man, woman, and marriage (Gen 1:26-28; 2:18-25; Matt 19:4). We have seen for many years the advancement of the normalization of homosexuality. Then on June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that all states are required to grant and recognize same-sex marriages. Continue reading →
Should conservative Christians be involved in politics since it is so earthly and corrupt? My answer is yes, and the following are four reasons why. Continue reading →
Some say conservative Christians should not be involved in politics because it distracts from the gospel. We will offend some with our stand on issues or our support of candidates. Because of that, some will be unwilling to listen to the gospel. I do not believe this is reflective of the nature of Scripture, and I consider it a dangerous idea which can hinder the propagation of the truth and the gospel so long as our positions and character are reflective of Scripture. Continue reading →
This election is between President Trump and Senator Biden. But it is much more. It is a choice between American Freedom and Marxian Socialism. The election surrounds non-negotiables: heterosexual marriage, normality of heterosexuality, creation of only male & female, sacredness of human life, religious freedom, and pro-private property (Ex 20:15,17). None of which find a home in the Democratic platform, Democrats’ unified sentiment, and the position of Joe Biden. To vote for someone who does not have a chance to win, not vote, or vote for Biden is a vote from which America may not recover. A little election history can be helpful. Continue reading →
