The real problem

by Mike Ratliff

I have been posting here on my blog for past several months about the evils of Critical Race Theory & Intersectionality and how many “Christian” leaders have corrupted their ministries by going full bore transforming their focus from Orthodox doctrines to include these non-Biblical, man-focused subjective non-truths. We have to wonder what would cause these people to do such a thing. Tom Ascol of Founders Ministries, one of the leaders against this evil Tweeted the following today:

PSA: Critical Race Theory & Intersectionality are not the problem. They are deadly symptoms of deeper problems. Evangelicals give only lip service to God’s Word. We have a crisis of man-fearing, unbelief, & cowardice. That’s how CRT/I gained a foothold.

I completely agree with him. What I find most troubling is the huge number of pastors and other Christian leaders who are not partaking of this evil, but who are “on the sidelines” not saying or doing anything about it. However, as the light of the truth is shined by those who know what is really going on into this darkness many of these “sideliners” are starting to speak up. I believe we must not let up. We must continue to show everyone who those people are who are behind this evil. Shine the bright light of the truth directly into what they are doing. We must name names. Why? Because that is what we are told do in the Word of God. Are we man-fearing, unbelieving cowards? I wouldn’t be writing these posts if that was the case.

What is the cure for unbelief? God dragged me out of a shallow, self-focused, angry Christian walk back in 2004-2005 and that changed everything. He changed everything for me and if He could change me, He can change anyone. It’s called repentance. It’s learning how to walk in repentance. When you do that you see things God’s way not man’s way. You learn to take up your cross daily and follow Jesus. When you do that you most definitely will not be a man-fearing, unbelieving coward. Oh, did I mention, when you do that you will also not be afraid to take those stands that might not be popular with the crowd? Yeah, but that is where our Lord wants us.

Soli Deo Gloria!



One thought on “The real problem

  1. A few weeks ago, I began reading Vos’ study guide …….highly recommended it.

    The Westminster Larger Catechism (Vos)

    Not that I have not studied and taught the Confession many times, but the Catechism is a slow study of many of the most critical Biblical doctrines, one could not do much better than to begin here. I doubt less than 1% have even read the Shorter Catechism. I’d be surprised if 1 in a thousand pastors have taught through the WLC,
