Resources for Christians Thinking through Social Justice Issues

These articles, messages, and links are provided to help Christians remain faithful to the Scripture in our actions, heart, and speech at a time when many evangelical leaders are abandoning clear biblical teaching. Or they are unjustifiably mixing biblical teaching with cultural Marxism, social justice, critical race theory, intersectionality, and terminology from Black Lives Matters (BLM), all of which are inferior to the biblical message and tacitly minimize the ungodly beliefs of BLM. In either case, the biblical perspective and the gospel is corrupted.

In their allegiances, they undermine Scripture by confusing such things as social justice with biblical justice, critical race theory’s definition of race and racism with Scripture’s teaching on race and racism, social justice’s evil privilege with biblical blessings, cultural Marxism’s white supremacy and guilt based on skin color and its ineffective repentance with God’s standard, which is that any sinful racial supremacy flows from the heart, but it can be forgiven and all guilt removed by repentance and faith.

 Every attempt to speak about racism that does not pedestal “all are created in the image of God” (Gen 1:26-28) or adopts inferior cultural expressions undermines the clarity of the Christian message and the gospel.

Black Lives Matters promotes morals that contradict Christianity

  1. Two of the three co-founders are lesbians, Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Alicia Garza. The third, Opal Tometi, is heterosexual. https://blacklivesmatter.com/our-co-founders/
  2. Beliefs of Black Lives Matters (BLM) are antithetical to Christianity. They state the following on BLM’s homepage, https://blacklivesmatter.com/what-we-believe/
  3. “We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.”
  4. “We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender [people who identify with the biological sex with which they were born] privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.”
  5. “We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.”
  6. “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children.”
  7. “We foster a queer”affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”
  8. In her biographical sketch, Alicia Garza says, “In order to truly understand how devastating and widespread this type of violence is in Black America, we must view this epidemic through a lens of race, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity.”
