• Watch Out: ‘Bait-and-Switch’ Tactic Critical Race Theory Slithering into Church

    Surge Summary: The racist Critical Race Theory lie is a bait-and-switch tactic which is currently infiltrating parts of the modern, American Church. It’s a profoundly anti-Christian fraud and should be repudiated by God’s people.

    Always needing to be on the lookout for false, foul ideas which might try to corrupt its presence, the American church is receiving a warning from one Christian leader ….

    Critical Race Theory is sneaking into the evangelical church – and according to a pastor and talk-show host, it threatens the very roots of the Christian faith.

    Critical Race Theory (often referred to as CRT) teaches that American culture is rife with white supremacy and baked-in racism, and is used – often subconsciously – to hold women and people of color back. According to pastor and talk-show host Abraham Hamilton III, it’s the philosophy behind identity politics and comes straight out of the Marxist playbook.

    Hamilton, who daily hosts American Family Radio’s The Hamilton Corner, devoted an entire podcast to the dangerous notion.

    “It doesn’t depend on your personal feeling, sentiment, [or] heart condition – it’s based on the group that you’re born into,” he explained recently on American Family Radio. “It completely eliminates individual responsibility, individual sin and expands it to corporate sin. And based on how you’re born, you are immediately ascribed into an ‘oppressor’ or ‘oppressed’ group.”

    If one clings to the Scriptures as guiding light, all of the above poses a glaring problem. The Bible teaches us. “Man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Sam 16:7).

    Believe it or not, in June 2019, the Southern Baptist Convention voted to use CRT and its fellow traveler, Intersectionality, as tools that could be helpful in unpacking the meaning of the Old and New Testaments.  OneNewsNow recently reported Pastor John MacArthur tagged that “a watershed moment” for the group. He cautioned it could very conceivably represent an early step in a liberal takeover in the SBC which is the largest Protestant denomination in America. Pastor Hamilton likewise sounded the alarm: Southern Baptists have invited a dangerous Trojan Horse into their midst.

    “The way it’s getting into the church, you have people presenting these ideas – critical race theory and other things – as something that they are not,” he shared. “They’re not adhering to the traditional definitions and applications [so they can] get the foot in the door – and then once the foot is in the door, the applications return to the original definitions.”

    Hamilton fingers it as a bait-and-switch tactic — a centuries-old approach which, regrettably, is depressingly effective. It has the capacity to corrupt the Christian faith and subvert a key tenet of evangelicalism.

    “Jesus articulated the primary commandments: love God with your heart, soul, mind and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself,” he concluded. “We don’t need these anti-Christ, unbiblical tools to teach us how to love our neighbors as ourselves – the scripture is sufficient for that.”

    The Bible expressly repudiates group -condemnation, i.e., racism. Recall Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman (John 4) the Syro-Phoenician woman (Mark 7) or the Roman Centurion (Luke 7). Think on the Apostle Peter’s experience with the Gentile Cornelius (Acts 10).

    “Critical Race Theory” is a poisonous sham and belongs nowhere in the vicinity of those who claim to follow Jesus Christ.
