Have you seen multitudes “canceled” for their beliefs, group associations, or opinions? Have you been told that you are ___ist for voting for a political candidate? Have you been told by someone that they cannot agree to disagree? Or have you been cussed out, verbally assaulted, and hurt by people because of your political ideology or your opinions?
These actions leave so much confusion and hurt in their wake, and seem impossible to understand. But at their core, they are all rooted in one common ideology: Critical Political Theory, or a new Religion of Politics.
Learn to understand why people cancel their grandmas, verbally assault others, and label others by their beliefs rather than actions– and believe they are “good.” Learn why this ideology rests on the belief that its greatest moral duty is to free people from oppression, and how canceling grandma and cursing out their social media friend is therefore moral if the person is an “oppressor.”
This new ideology has become a new kind of “religion,” and gives answers for its orthodoxy and doctrine. Only when we understand it can we adequately respond in a biblical way with answers that speak to the root of the problem.
Learn how to respond to this new “religion,” how to have political boundaries, and how to engage biblically with politics and those we disagree with. Most importantly, in a culture whose ideology only causes further division, learn how to create true biblical unity.
