In October 2021, a church in New Jersey asked Dr. Frank Turek to give a presentation on Critical Race Theory because the issue was dividing their church and community. A capacity crowd of about 500 showed up and heard Frank address these three questions:

1. What does the culture mean by social justice?
2. What are the fundamentals of critical theory?
3. How does it line up with Biblical Christianity?

He then answered questions from the audience for about 30 minutes.

Thereโ€™s a lot of ground covered in this presentation, but if you want to go further you might want to check out the website of Dr. Neil Shenvi at https://shenviapologetics.com/

    I also think there are a few conflicting ideas presented in this speech. The dude in the 5 minute video said you donโ€™t have to experience a certain kind of oppression to understand it. While that holds some truth, you cannot truly know what something feels like until you experience it. Isnโ€™t that one of the reasons God came in the form of man and took our suffering throughout his life and on the cross? How could he be an example for man if he never knew what it felt like to be one while resisting temptation?

    Phrases such as โ€œthereโ€™s only one raceโ€ are more destructive than helpful. The concept of race is so developed and ingrained within society that to say race doesnโ€™t exist is inauthentic and dismissive. Of course the concept of race is man made but that doesnโ€™t change that itโ€™s now a real element of peoples identities, cultures, and experiences. This is self evident through his repeated referral to black PEOPLE as โ€œblacksโ€

    If your sacred text, and God-given revelations, condones slavery, which is worse than racism, to the degree that same God had to issue commandments and laws regarding the practice of such cruelty, why are you even discussing this subject? Believing God's word is infallible and unchanging does not allow room for disagreement, deviation, or abolishment of slavery and its residual damage. Character hasn't anything to with it. He has deemed salvery righteous. In my opinion, racism, and its denial is the fuel powering the locomotive of resentment Christians feel not being able to openly adhere to God's law. It is what your God mandated. The good doctor hasn't the decency to teach the entire law of slavery within the Bible. Debt relief was only one aspect of it and only open to a few.

    lol, Itโ€™s always funny to see a religiite trying to use religion to influence political opinion, as if church and state shouldnโ€™t be separated.

    CRT is an attempt to legitimise racism to White people, their history and their culture.

    Woke Socialism and National Socialism operate from the same ideological playbook.

    We have a scenario, where agitators in the LGBT, BLM, Woke Socialist movement deride, dismiss and denigrate the Western Democratic Christian tradition as something that must be dismantled, that which you had no hand in building, you will gladly destroy. But, what do you think, or who do you think will replace the Western Christian Democratic tradition?

    China?

    Russia?

    Iran?

    Pakistan?

    Now, how many BLM riots or LGBT marches in protest did you see in Moscow, Beijing, Tehran or Islamabad? The safest place in the world for a LGBTQ/BLM activist is in the Western Christian civilisation and it is this civilisation that they are so earnest to dismantle.

    Your friend is sinning by saying he doesnโ€™t want an all-white church. God will save who he will save and your friend has no say in the matter. He should not even consider the ethnicity of those he pastors. Hopefully he repents.

    CRT is what happened to the natives– leftists only replaced the church and residential schools on reservations. They only build cheap schools on reservations to deny special education needs of welfare cases multiplying unabounded. The few that do make it through are lobbied and ushered by there own professors into social justice where they return home unqualified to aid illiterate children with math. Youth are committing suicide with no history of abuse or drugs or alcohol at an unprecedented rate.

    1. There is NO "theory" regarding OUR GOD YEHAWAH. You gentiles false god's never was OUR GOD.
    2. Now in these times a caucasian "white" person has no business speaking about "critical race" can not relate to our God's Abraham's/Jacob's descendants who've served being the persecuted race-CRITICALLY brutally horrific persecution the past 500+years, fulfilled. Repent gentile our God is near…
    3. Yehawah's wrath of judgements soon coming for the whole world end Armageddon…
    4. AFTER the end whoever of the gentiles endured until the very end, Father chose to branch in with His beloved Jacob's/Israel's 12tribe descendants, branched in gentiles as servants and maids to Father's everlasting Kingdom on new earth never again sorrow…

    Critical Theory is failed Marxist rich vs poor idea substituted instead by sex and race. Its goal remains unchanged- creation of division and social unrest among people. It seeks to irritate, not to heal, and can be defeated by refusing division and insisting on remaining united.

    I would suggest using the term Marxian, that term covers a wide range of topics like CRT, Postmodernists, Marxist. It's a word that describes all variations of ideas that draw from or have grown out of Marxism.

    Not saying that this should replace an actual church service , but for ALL of those pastors out there who were bowing to the doctrine of CRT and BLM, I would much rather have preferred this presentation than the ones those weak pastors presented when they spoke around racial issues trying to appeal to the masses.

    CRT goes AGAINST the gospel. NO Christian should ever bend a knee to the woke left. Period.

    Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One God and Father of all.

    Jeremiah 12:9 Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour.

    Acts 17 24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
    25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
    26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
    27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
    28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
    29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

    The Heritage of the Lord is speckled, meaning many colors in one. Which is what Paul said, we (all people) are of one blood and we have only one Lord, One Faith, One Baptism and One God and Father of all.

    Ok let us make this clear crt and Christians are in lockstep. Both are based on us and them mentality. Both have the oppressed and oppressors. Both have victim and oppression complex which removed the individual freedom for group consequences. This is history. Yet you tell stories that are taken out of context. Just to be shocking. The reason I say this 8s because Jim crow was a true Christian and so were the democrats who made these horrors of our past possible. Only now because of the faithful horror do you separate yourself.

    CRT came out of Legal Studies which came from Critical Theory, that was created by the FRANKFURT SCHOOL.

    You either believe in CRT or you believe in christianity. It can't be both. We are either with him or against him. CRT is meant to divide people and that's not what God is about.
