My church teaches critical race theory. Do I leave? – Break Point Podcast Q&A

John and Shane address the issue of racial care in our churches. A listener’s church is teaching Critical Race Theory (CRT) to help heal. John is quick to note that Christians should have commitment to their church and to addressing the issues that arise. He notes that CRT is a tool to address an injustice, but there are better tools to address the brokenness in our culture. He and Shane point out why CRT is problematic for Christians and provide context on how to approach an issue when a church uses the world’s tools to try to fix the problem of sin.

Another listener asked a question related to the sexual revolution. Are women and children really disproportionately affected by the sexual revolution? John pulls out a Margaret Meade quote, stating that a primary role of a society is to find a proper place for men. While not agreeing with Meade’s worldview, John provides the listener a context to understand the broken promises of Margaret Sanger’s sexual revolution, that women would be liberated and children would finally have happy parents. 

To close Shane engages a question the pair left us with last week. The question from a listener who asks about morality and where it comes from. John and Shane address an atheistic perspective and what evolutionary morality leads to. John does a quick survey of transhumanism and the goal of evolution as the pair provide helpful frameworks for us to engage challenging questions on where morality comes from and how we use it.
