The Evangelical social justice movement is a conglomeration of a bunch of leftist propaganda combined with feminism, Critical Theory, and intersectionality. Disguised as biblical exegesis, the social justice movement is working hard to rewrite history and reinterpret Scripture to support their agenda — and their agenda is to tear down all power structures and hierarchy.
The goal of the social justice movement is to dismantle the perceived “power structure” of straight, white males who they perceive to be the “oppressor.” To do so, they continue to paint a picture that portrays them as evil, malicious, and power-hungry. It is the driving force behind intersectionality — men oppress women, white people oppress black people, straight people oppress gay people. And if you fit into more than one of these categories, the higher you rank on the intersectional scale.
The movement is rooted in a Marxist ideology known as Critical Theory. Critical Theory is the umbrella for a number of sub-ideologies, including Critical Race Theory. Reformation Charlotte has reported a number of times on Critical Race Theory, but Critical Theory applies to other areas as well, such as gender and sexuality.
Another hard push within the Evangelical social justice movement is egalitarianism — or feminism. The goal is to move away from biblical patriarchy and, despite what the Scriptures teach, place women in leadership positions within the Church. The feminists are making unprecedented moves to destroy all biblical notion of male headship even to the extent of reinterpreting the Scriptures.
Last week, Beth Moore railed against biblical womanhood at a Southern Baptist conference where she said that the biblical doctrine of complementarianism — that is the doctrine that teaches men and women are equal but have different functions — fosters an environment of sexual abuse. Jen Wilkin, another feminist out of Matt Chandler’s Village Church, is also pushing for the destruction of male headship and the installation of women in teaching and leadership positions.
But one of the most unprecedented moves of late is the campaign against the interpretation of 2 Samuel 11 where David sought Bathsheba for a sexual encounter. Historically understood and properly exegeted, the consensus is that the encounter was mutual — after all, you have a woman bathing nude on her roof in the sight of a King. What woman who isn’t also seeking a mutual encounter does this? Yet, the social justice warriors and feminists are now seeking to reinterpret the encounter as rape.
It began with Rachel Denhollander’s tweet — now much of the social justice bandwagon has jumped aboard. Historically, there is not one commentary written that interprets David’s encounter with Bathsheba as rape. Of course, they’re all straight, white men, so what do they know?
But that doesn’t matter as the goal is to paint a picture of male patriarchy that is archaic and abusive. The logical conclusion to this is that anyone who has any authority is automatically guilty of abuse whether or not the encounter was mutual.
The end goal of the feminist egalitarianism movement isn’t to end sexual abuse — it’s to tear down hierarchies. Just like the racialism movement, the goal is to destroy civilization and to rebuild a society that is socialist and rejects such things as individualism, capitalism, and freedom altogether. And to do so, a picture has to be painted that portrays the majority as evil, power-hungry, and sex-obsessed abusers.
