The Social Justice Divide in the Church
What does it mean to be anti-racist or "woke"? How does being "woke" affect the theology of pastors and congregations who buy into it? Garrett Ashley Mullet and Micah Hershberger tackle this topic on today's podcast. They discuss Voddie Baucham's groundbreaking new book "Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Catastrophe" and how it affects you.
And they discuss how being "woke" has affected popular Christian pastors and authors like Paul David Tripp, Russell Moore, John Piper, and Tim Keller. Should we read books written by "woke" authors? Should we be more discerning as to which books we're recommending to others if the author is known to take a favorable stance towards Social Justice initiatives? Is being "woke" the way to go?
