The “White Privilege” doctrine is the new Trojan Horse used by Lucifer and the powers of darkness with the specific purpose of diluting the Gospel and silencing the voices of those who would steadfastly proclaim truth.
Members of the Freethought Caucus and the Secular Democrats Political Action Committee are seeking to weaken, marginalize, divide, and remove Christian influence across the United States.
They openly revealed the true origin and roots of the “White Privilege” doctrine in the Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality with their twenty-eight-page document released to President Elect, Joe Biden, Monday, November 30, 2020.
WorldNet Daily News Service reported:
It would ban religious organizations from participating in government programs, support governors who want to close down churches amid the COVID pandemic, require new disclosures from churches, overturn religious-rights precedents such as the Hobby Lobby case, prevent mention of creationism in education and work for a “deradicalization” of “white Christian nationalism.” The document declares the “rise of white Christian nationalism is a national security threat.”WND.com, “Secular Democrats Urge Biden to Pounce on U.S. Christianity, WorldNetDaily Staff, December 2, 2020, 7:53PM
The social justice movement has been seeking to bring justice to the streets of the inner city and racial reconciliation and reparations between people of color for over a hundred years.
Instead of resolving the injustices of the inner city, issues have deepened.
Rather than bringing racial reconciliation the conflict has become more agitated. The ineffectiveness of the social justice efforts are found in the very ideology and systems they foster.
The poverty, violence, and crime fostered by the youth and adults of the inner city are blamed on the circumstances of their families and the living conditions in the neighborhoods.
Individuals are not held responsible for the choices they make and their behavior, rather culture, society, the injustices of “white privilege,” and all manner of other reasons are blamed.
They are the victim.
A medical model has been adopted for dealing with addictive and anti-social behavior.
Alcoholism, drug addiction, pornography, sexual addiction, violent anger, and other forms of “acting out” are termed “a sickness” that must be understood because the individual cannot help themselves.
Personal responsibility is removed, counseling, group therapy, and medication are prescribed for discovery and dealing with the cause of “the sickness” and hopefully bringing relief.
Affirmative action programs have been designed and put in place to make it fair for people of color, race, and gender to compete in the education and employment systems of the United States.
What is not acknowledge is the absolute fact that fairness in a system is never equally fair.
Someone is always passed over, excluded, or marginalized. It is not possible to build a system of fairness that will be equally fair to every person or group of people.
Affirmative action may help a group of people today, but it steps on another group of people and marginalizes them for the benefit of those who are being assisted.
Racial equality, eradicating gender bias and the elimination of homophobia are being “shoehorned” into the culture through tolerance doctrine, state and federal laws, and company policies requiring new forms of speech or limiting certain forms of speech; demanding tolerance and acceptance of new social and sexual behaviors; and redefining moral values.
What is left out of the equation is the condition of the human heart.
Compliance with the laws and company policies to avoid fines, lawsuits, and loss of employment does not mean acceptance and embracing of the individual and the new moral values.
God knew the weakness of human effort to seek justice for all people.
That is why He established true justice in His Word through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Authentic justice is based upon four biblical principles.
4 Principles of Authentic Justice vs. Social Justice
1. Every human being is made in the image of God and has the same original parents.
“Let us make man in our image” (Genesis 1:26) were God’s words before He created mankind.
Adam and Eve were made in the likeness of God and every person that has been born on planet earth after them, are made in the template of God, Himself.
Psalm 139:13-15 makes it very clear God supervises the forming of every child in the womb. The worth and value of every human being is based upon the image they carry in their own life – God.
Scripture also makes it clear, every human being, regardless of color or race have the same original parents and the same blood line.
“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings” (Acts 17:26 NKJV).
One race, color, or gender is not superior to another. We are equal in creation, worth, and value.
2. The heart of mankind is basically evil.
Jeremiah 17:9 records, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked, who can know it.”
There is no law or company policy that will make the human heart love, respect, and value another human being.
It was black men selling black people into slavery in the 18th century when slave ships were bringing slaves to Great Britain and America.
It was Germans and other Europeans arresting and sending white Jews and white Europeans to the work camps and death camps of Germany.
There are more “black on black” killings in the streets of Chicago, Memphis, and Philadelphia today than there is “white on black.”
It is white people, black people, and Asians trafficking in the sale of young girls and even children and babies of all colors and race in the sex market.
It is the sinful heart of man that must be changed if we are going to see true justice in the earth.
3. Every individual is responsible for the choices they make and for their behavior.
Eve tried to blame the Serpent. Adam tried to blame Eve. Cain tried to blame his brother Able.
God held each of them responsible for their own behavior.
He made it clear in Ezekiel 18:19-32 the child cannot blame the parent and the parent cannot blame the child for their behavior.
Every individual is personally responsible for their choices and for their actions.
“I will judge every one of you according to his own ways” (Ezekiel 33:12-20).
4. Love, acceptance, and forgiveness can only come from God and the work of the Holy Spirit in the heart of a person.
We love God because “He first loved us” (1John 4:19). Jesus said, “As I love you, that you also love one another” (John 13:33). Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ are the source of all love.
No amount of social pressure, reeducation, or legal requirements will bring authentic love, honor, respect, and forgiveness of one another into a culture.
It is only God’s love, acceptance, and forgiveness in the heart of the individual that will cause them to love and respect other human beings.
Hatred, bigotry, class warfare, exalting one race while demeaning another has been the bane of human existence since Cain killed his brother Able.
There is no social program, re-education system, or statute that will change the sinful heart and fill it with love.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the only one who can make that happen.
Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality have their origins and roots in the ideology and socialist philosophy of Marxism and Communism.
The “White Privilege” message that is being proclaimed from Christian pulpits across the land is a doctrine of deconstructionism with the same roots.
Although well-meaning in most cases; all-be-it rooted in a false guilt and a spirit of condemnation spawned from the powers of darkness, the message of “white privilege” will not accomplish the desired purposes.
These doctrines will never bring social justice.
Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and similar social justice movements will not bring reconciliation and healing to our troubled nation.
They will bring just the opposite.
They will result in more violence, more oppression, and more destruction of the very lives for which they proclaim they are seeking justice.
That is the authentic history of such movements. Indeed, that is the hidden agenda of such movements.
Where can true justice be found?
True justice will only be found in the hearts of men and women who have experienced the regenerating power of new birth by the Holy Spirit and the washing of their sinful evil heart by the blood of Jesus Christ.
Followed by seeking the love of God to infuse their motive, thoughts, and behavior and allowing Jesus to teach them to love as He loves, selflessly and self-sacrificing.
The history of spiritual awakenings and revivals record the miraculous justice that has come to inner cities and the racial reconciliation that has been experienced from such a mighty working of God.
This is biblical justice that brings true liberty for all people.
