One of the underlying tenets of Marxism is the radical transformation of mass thinking by implementing strategies that cause confusion and undermine the current paradigm. One of these strategies is the introduction of Black Liberation Theology which was popularized by James Cone and uses as its core doctrine an idea straight out of the Marxist playbook — victimology. Ever seeking to divide and conquer, the victimization of blacks in America has been a strategic move of the progressive left not only to undermine conservative values, but Christianity has a whole. What better way to cause division in a society than to pit two groups against each other setting one up as the oppressor and the other as the oppressed?
Kyle Howard, a recent graduate of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, has been at the forefront of this movement over the last year primarily taking to social media to create a false narrative of black oppression by whites. Along with his auxiliaries, Thabiti Anyabwile, Russell Moore, Matt Chandler, Eric Mason, and many others, they continue to paint an entire ethnic group as evil and guilty of mass systemic racism upon which all blacks to this day suffer from. This guilt, they say, is in need of atonement and restitution far more advanced than the cross of Jesus could provide. This guilt requires monetary reparations.
Some people would argue that Kyle Howard is smart and that he knows exactly what he’s doing. Some would argue that he’s purposefully continuing to push this narrative because he actually wants what the progressive agenda will logically conclude with — the destruction of society as we know it. I don’t think so. I think he’s a useful idiot in this game
It’s no secret that one of Howard’s ally, Russell Moore, is a beneficiary of George Soros’ funding at the Evangelical Immigration Table, of which Moore is a leader. Essentially, Moore has been co-opted to carry out George Soros’ open-borders agenda and he does so by strategically changing the minds of Evangelical Christians on issues of immigration. Continually painting illegal immigrants as “refugees” and subsequently “victims” of US government totalitarianism when they enter the legal system, Moore has successfully moved a large part of the Evangelical landscape in his favor.
Using these same tactics, Howard spends his time on social media causing dissension and division by relentlessly painting himself and blacks as a whole as victims of white oppression. Howard, who says he’d be afraid to be in the same room as James White, now attacks Ed Dingess of Reformed Reasons because Dingess said that Thabiti Anyabwile should be “marked.”
Of course, anyone with a modicum of biblical acuity knows that this is a reference to Romans 16:17. The King James version, of which Howard is well aware despite his theological ineptitude, says “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and
I really shouldn’t have to point out just how stupid this is. But let me point it out, this is insanely stupid. To actually suggest that Dingess would be in favor of some kind of violence on another human being is laughable, at best.
In fact, Ed has written a number of articles on this subject to which I believe you would benefit from reading:
- Justice in All Its Parts: Responding to Thabiti Anyabwile
- Justice in All Its Parts: Responding to Thabiti Anyabwile – Part 2
- The Heresy of Liberation Theology
- The SBC and Its Mostly False Gospel
- and more…
Of course, Howard wouldn’t have a voice if he weren’t a victim. He actually runs a business as a “racial trauma counselor” which is nothing more than therapeutic victim training. Even sadder are the comments that follow Howard’s thread.
At least for now, Howard’s claptrap seems to be contained to his fringe group of sycophant followers on Twitter. All reasonable clear-minded Christians wrote him off a long time ago. But Kyle is only one example of a mass influx of useful idiots being taken in to promote and cause division in the body of Christ. Praise God that the gates of Hell will not prevail against the Church and no matter how hard people like Howard try to stop it, the gospel will prevail.
