Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. 1 Corinthians 2:12
Last weekend, we discussed the “Woke Movement” that is emerging within the Evangelical church from those who consider themselves “woke”—awake, enlightened, activists—to issues of race, gender, and sexuality that they believe the church is failing to address.
In their view, the Evangelical church is white-centric and racist against blacks, sexist against women, and unwelcoming toward homosexuals … and this needs to change.
So what is influencing these Evangelicals to take up “social justice” issues from a perspective that shares much in common with the secular Cultural Marxism worldview that sees “white privilege” and the “heterosexual patriarchy” as oppressing the oppressed? What is the ultimate goal of Cultural Marxism?
To answer these questions, we will play some sound bites from a recent Unshackled radio broadcast.
Join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview as we define the terms of the Woke Movement and find out what they are really trying to accomplish.
