Maybe you are like me and have not really had time for the past 10 years or so to delve into what colleges are teaching students. Well , it is urgent that you do some research because what we are seeing in the news, young people attacking people in restaurants and yelling at people on the street and burning down buildings is a DIRECT result of what they have been taught, not just in college, but on many internet forums that most of us do not read. Our children are being brainwashed into a false gospel based on Marxist theories called Critical theory, or critical race theory if it is about racism, which is the current hot topic. Here is just one link , but there have been many unprovoked violent attacks . These kids truly believe they have the right to do this. The self-righteousness is thick.
Critical theory/ Marxism is a false gospel because it removes our own sin and only focuses on oppression by those in power. It promises something it cannot deliver, a heaven on earth after you achieve this elusive fair and just world. It also allows you to do anything including violent acts to achieve your goal. You may recognize some of Satan’s tricks here: Lies, pride, hate, anger, judging, greed, division. You may have wondered why so many have young people , and famous people, have left the church, have embraced social justice to an extreme degree, have started feeling anxious and depressed, started using words you’ve never heard of and you just thought they were harmless slang, but are actually Marxist/Critical Theory terms, such as intersectionality.
The way the theory works is that there are only two possible types of people, the oppressors and the oppressed, and if you are not fighting for the revolution, you are automatically the oppressor. This is very dangerous. The range of acceptable beliefs will become very small. The ones who believe in the concept of right and wrong based on the Bible will not be in that circle. Also, straight white male Christians cannot ever be acceptable because they are the epitome of oppression in this theory, so guess who that leaves out? White Christian fathers, and even non-White fathers, are under attack and risk being ‘cancelled’ by their own children.
You must educate yourself. Your child could be the next one who gets shot or commits suicide. Find out what they believe. I am posting a link below to a podcast. Please , this is urgent. This podcast sums it up well. You could skip the first couple of minutes but don’t stop before the end.
The church must wake up to the false gospel of ‘wokeness’ and preach with boldness the true gospel of Jesus Christ. The oppressor is our own sinful heart. The solution is repentance and following Jesus! As you can see this would not fit in with critical theory at all since the gospel was made by a ‘man’ and pushed by a powerful ‘institution’. The church ‘oppresses’ women and anyone who doesn’t have ‘power’ when it teaches that they should live according to a Bible that these Marxists rejects. Do not be fooled, social justice is not of God. Do not stay silent on this. Talk to your kids and family and friends who you see wrapped up in the BLM movement. Ask if they know what it’s about other than racial injustice. Most don’t. Help them see that Christians care about racial injustice but critical theory is a dangerous and deadly false gospel.
This is just a quick post. I am not trying to explain everything here. You can easily find many good websites on critical theory like I did. Here are a few links.
Here is a short video explanation. The title is misleading. I think he left out the word Not. https://youtu.be/DAABuCC96tI
