The Church of Jesus Christ has endured attacks and distortions and persecutions throughout history. Of the warnings from the apostle Paul, none are more numerous than watchfulness for false teachings from both inside and outside the church.
When Paul wrote his letter to the Christians at Galatia, he chided them for accepting a false gospel:
I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you by the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel – which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned
There is a new “church” in our culture preaching a new “gospel” that is really no gospel at all. This new “church” is the Church of Woke…and it’s teachings are in direct conflict with the Church of Jesus. There are many Christians who are being converted to the Church of Woke, but are still hoping to keep their membership within the Church of Jesus.
Sadly, the teachings of this false gospel of Wokism is infecting the Church of Jesus. Many church leaders are actually preaching wokism from the pulpit.
Let’s look at the foundational teachings between the two churches to show why Wokism should not be allowed inside the Church of Jesus
|Sin||Being white, Disagree with Leftist ideology||Disobey God’s Word (John 14:15)|
|Justice||Reparations, riots, looting, equality of worldly wealth||Making decisions based on God’s righteousness (Prov 28:5)|
|Holiness||Agreement with Marx (oppression, intersectionality)||Agreement with God (Lev 19:2)|
|Political affiliations||BLM, Marxism, Socialism, Democrats, Feminism, LGBTQ+||None (Phil 3:20)|
|Race||Most important identity. Hostility between races permanent||One Race (Acts 17:26) Hostility between people groups ended by Jesus (Eph 2:14)|
|Identity Defined-By||Race, Sexual identity, Sexual Preference, Oppression||Jesus Christ (John 1:12)|
|Forgiveness||No forgiveness for Caucasians or blacks who oppose Marxism & Identity politics||Confess sin to God and He forgives (1 John 1:9)|
|Salvation||Join church of woke, Preach identity politics||By grace through faith in Christ alone (Acts 4:12, Eph 2:8)|
Don’t let the false gospel of wokism into your church or let the gospel of wokism distract you from preaching the Word of God.
