Critical race theory is a Marxist philosophy and program to tear down all existing biblically-influenced societal, political, and government structures and to replace them with the “new man,” a mythical ideal society. It is “critical” in that it aims to criticize all existing structures. It is a “race” theory in that it divides men into “races” and claims that certain races, particularly the white “race” and those who are aligned with the white “race,” are inherently evil. It is a theory in that it is not a fact. It should be called Critical Race Hypothesis, because a theory at least has some basis in fact, whereas Critical Race Theory has none. A chief tactic is divide and conquer, but it uses any tactic that is effective, including lies, slander, ridicule, theft, threat, repression, terrorism, and murder. It respects no law. It has no love. It takes many forms so as to infiltrate and deceive. It is Black Lives Matter. It is Antifa. It is the 1619 Project. It is leftist college courses. It is historical revisionism in the public schools. It seeks to pit females against males, blacks against whites, mothers against fathers, children against parents, teachers against parents, singles against married, Democrats against Republicans, young against old. It seeks to legalize and empower unrighteousness and moral filthiness. It hates the Bible. It seeks to destroy the traditional family, the New Testament church, home schooling and private education, the Bill of Rights, personal liberty, a stable government of law and order, Republicanism, capitalism, economic stability. Anything that corrupts, harms, or destroys these things is considered good, because that is the immediate goal. It is arrogant and domineering. Critical Race Theory is being taught in Southern Baptist seminaries (“Former ERLC Scholar Says,” Capstone Report, March 13, 2020). Yet Critical Race Theory is contrary to the Bible’s teaching and therefore must be rejected by every Bible believer. The Bible is not a theory; it is the infallible Word of God. Following are some of the biblical truths that contradict Critical Race Theory: All men have one father, Adam; there is only one “race” of men (Acts 17:26). All men are equally sinners before God; none are righteous; none are superior (Romans 3:10-18, 23). God made man male and female (Genesis 1:27). It is an unchangeable biological fact. Homosexuality is a perversion of God’s plan and is destructive to individuals and society (Romans 1:26-28). Men are to respect laws and obey authority (1 Peter 2:13-17). God forbids dishonor of parents, murder, adultery, stealing, lying, and covetousness (Exodus 20:1-17). Men are to love God and love other men as neighbors (Matthew 22:37-40).
