By now, you are probably aware of the great “walk-out” that occurred when Ekemini Uwan, a race-baiter our of Westminster Theological Seminary took to the stage at a recent women’s conference to spout racist anti-White filth to a room full of mostly women who came to hear the Word of God preached. If you’re not, you can read about that here. You may also be aware of Uwan’s racial diatribes against white people continuously on Twitter. Here’s an example:
Empowered by progressive outlets such as The Gospel Coalition (TGC) and the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), Uwan and her many cohorts, like Thabiti Anyabwile, Jemar Tisby, and Kyle James Howard have been bolstered in their efforts to continue to create racial division in the Church. Claiming “gospel-centeredness,” these race-baiters continue to promote identity politics that have far more to do with Karl Marx’s doctrine of divide-and-conquer than biblical Christianity.
Before they were given such a massive platform to boast their racist rhetoric, those who held these views would at least make an effort to pretend like they weren’t evil. But now that they’ve been affirmed by mainstream Christianity, all bets are off and they have no qualms about showing who they really are — militants waging war against “whiteness.”
The war has evolved from taking on white-supremacy to whiteness. What exactly is whiteness? To them, it’s pretty much anything that can be associated with the stereotypical “white” culture — basically, affluence. But you don’t actually have to be white to be sold out to whiteness.
In fact, you can be black, affluent, and not bought into the racial propaganda that blacks are mistreated. You see, to them, anything that promotes self-responsibility, decries a victimhood mentality, and objects to government-sponsored redistribution of wealth
The narrative that they continue to push — that whiteness is wickedness — is nothing short of demonic. Could you imagine the outrage if a white person made the comment “blackness is wickedness?” In this article, Howard argues that the whiteness they refer to is the social construct that is built around people of Anglo-European ethnic descent. It is true that there are social constructs built around ethnicity in America, but to make the argument that one is inherently evil is absurd. These constructs are actually built on the propaganda of people like Kyle Howard who continue to advance them.
To make matters worse, there is no escape — no hope for the white person caught up in his whiteness. By the very virtue of ethnicity, skin color, a white person is forever attached to this social construct of whiteness. This is how they can declare all white people guilty of black slavery while declaring all blacks entitled to reparations — because they do attach racial ethnicity to their social constructs, despite them trying to separate the two. It’s not biblical theology, it’s racism.
Further, he argues that the Bible does not call us to colorblindness, that we should still find our identity in our ethnicity. This is also absurd. 1 Samuel 16:7 says, “For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” God does not judge by our skin color, he judges according to our hearts. But people like Howard, Uwan, Anyabwile, etc. consistently argue that in order to be right with God, we must accept their view of racialism and make every effort to atone for our imputed sins through their made-up
When you move past talking about the historic misdeeds of past generations and atrocities committed against blacks and other minorities and start applying imputed ancestral guilt to an entire ethnic group based solely on the color of their skin while trying to justify your rhetoric against that ethnic group by claiming you’re fighting a “social construct,” you’ve exited the realm of Christianity and taken up secular humanism.
Further, if you truly find closer and more trustworthy friendships in drug-running gangs than you do as a Christian, then it’s probably safe to argue that you need to examine yourself to see if you’re actually in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5). These people are not only assaulting an ethnic group, but they are also assaulting the bride of Christ.
