Faith Debate: September 6th, 2020

Critical Race Theory and the Church

One can only wonder why such an army of professing Christians have offered up teachings (represented pretty well by Phil Vischer, the creator of Veggie Tales, in a viral video) as something delicious for other Christians to gobble up.

Consider, for example, that the video does not quote Scripture once.  It does not point to the Gospel even one time.  It does not utter the name of Jesus at all, nor does he even use the more generic (and “politically correct” term) “God”.  Not once.

Instead Mr. Vischer rattles off a long series of political talking points (from a progressive point of view, as it turns out).  The worldview represented is rooted, or influenced by, or at least accidentally borrowing from Critical Race Theory (which is not a biblical philosophy).  In fact, Critical Race Theory is a hindrance to the advance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
