CRU — formerly Campus Crusade for Christ — in recent weeks has been exposed as a political activist organization that has abandoned the gospel in favor of cultural Marxism, intersectionality, and LGBTQ activism. The message of the cross and the shed blood of Jesus Christ for sinners has given way for a message designed to indoctrinate young men and women into activists for racial justice and groom white children into affirming “white privilege,” “white supremacy,” and “white guilt.”
The social justice activism of CRU is rooted in the Marxist ideology of Critical Race Theory. Critical Race Theory has replaced the gospel of grace in the vast majority of mainstream Evangelical churches and denominations — including those that would have once been considered conservative.
Critical Race Theory (CRT) emerged as an offshoot of Critical Theory, a neo-Marxist philosophy that has its roots in the Frankfurt School and its methods are drawn from Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud. CRT teaches that institutional racism exists within every structure of society and that these structures are intrinsically designed in such a manner as to protect and preserve “white supremacy” in our culture. Further, CRT does not rely on factual statistics or objective evidence to support the theory, rather it relies on anecdotal evidence and personal experience.
Not only has CRU bought completely into intersectionality and CRT social justice activism, but it has also taken an active role in demeaning and degrading white people. One CRU speaker at a recent event during a prayer had the white people in the audience stand up and lament their white guilt. The emotional manipulation that takes place at CRU events is incomprehensible. Just like in charismatic circles, here, young people are so often emotionally manipulated by a musical performance that makes them vulnerable and open to receive the message that follows — it captivates and deceives them.
What we see in the CRU video exposé below is the fruit of Marxist Critical Race Theory that has taken over the Church. What is on display here is not a movement of God, but a movement of the culture that is anti-gospel and anti-Christ.
CRU is not only known for its racialized social justice activism, but it has also been exposed for its softened stance on homosexuality and LGBTQ inclusiveness. One CRU leader, Rachel Gilson, who is also a contributor and regular circuit speaker for The Gospel Coalition, was recently exposed for teaching students that it is okay to be gay and also penned an article at Desiring God affirming the LGBTQ teaching that gender is independent of biological sex.
Enemies Within the Church is doing an enormous amount of work in exposing the heresy of social justice that plagues the churches.
