It’s time for a moratorium in the Evangelical / Christian community on the juxtaposition of two words: “Lives Matter”. It is causing great confusion by linking statements about objective truth with a Marxist organization that uses those two words as a cudgel to achieve power to promote a long list of policies what are manifestly anti-Christian and anti-Black.
So to start things off, I propose using only the acronym BLM for the Marxist organization, and some other phrase such as “….. lives are important” or similar even if a bit semantically awkward, as long as the word “matter” is avoided.
The damage done by the BLM organization and its followers to the well-being of not only Blacks but to all races and ethnicities is significant and on-going. The very racial reconciliation that White Christians sometimes seem to desire is being undermined by BLM, so why give them any publicity, unless of course it’s in condemnation?
Exposés of this group are not difficult to find – you may have your own favorites. But if not, here are a few:
Once you peel away the surface rhetoric of BLM, what you find is Postmodern neo-Marxist ideology in all its demonic fullness.
It’s past time for Evangelicals to really get their head around the ideology that wants to gain totalitarian power, while exploiting Blacks and other minorities with their false narratives to enhance Identity Politics and Class Guilt (in the case of BLM, “White Guilt”) to achieve their goals.
For example, if you don’t have at least a cursory understanding of Critical Race Theory, you need to know enough about it to be able to dismantle and falsify it. And in the process learn if you’ve been contaminated by any of it’ tenets.
Here’s one place to gain an understanding (jump to the Discussion section if you’re pressed for time):
And everybody talks about Systemic Racism. But does it exist? Here’s what a young Black Christian says:
In addition to ensuring that you know enough about demonic Leftist ideology, you need to be sure you have a grasp on the thinking of Black conservatives. They provide much of the remedy to the “ideological possession” so increasingly rampant in the Evangelical movement. Once you internalize their thinking, then falsification of Leftist ideology will come easily.
Here are a couple sources for Black conservative thinking:
It’s time for White evangelicals to stop agonizing over issues that are essentially manufactured by the Left, and start adopting and supporting the viewpoints of the Black conservative movement. Listen to them. Sit at THEIR feet, not at Derrick Bell and Kimberlee Crenshaw and the BLM people.
There is no better way to free yourself from the Leftist guilt trip that they have so skillfully constructed and deployed through their hegemony in academia, the media, the Deep State, and sadly some of the evangelical movement.
Here’s a scriptural admonition to get you started:
Ephesians 5:8-11 NIV
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
And remember, no more use of that word “matter”!
