‘Wokeness’ begins with platitudes about race, justice, and equality. Going from that to hard facts, fairness, and a workable plan seems to elude the ‘woke folk’. When pinned down to practical solutions, their brain drain is often instant and they begin to ramble and say things that make no sense in the real world. The sure sign that you are a leftist is that you confuse feeling with thinking.
That two-step transition from ranting to incoherence is perfectly embodied in Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. Watch her work. She begins, as I just said, with tirades against evil. After that it is grim, indeed. She simply makes no sense.
As Scott Moorefield said, “…just about everything that comes out of the young congresswoman-elect’s mouth is either patently untrue, ridiculously unworkable, unintentionally hilarious, or ripped straight from the pages of Das Kapital (in which case it’s all of the above).”
She compared Global Warming to World War II. “the last time we had a really major existential threat in this country was around World War II. So, we’ve been here before, and we have a blueprint of what we did before. None of these things are new ideas. What we had was an existential threat in the context of a war, and what we did was that we chose to mobilize and industrialize our entire economy and we put hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to work in defending our shores and defending this country.”
Doesn’t everyone immediately think, “Hey, let’s do to global warming what we did to the Nazis?”
The same mental drain occurs when you question—if they let you—the ‘Woke Christian.’ They begin by representing the Left as being more like the organic message of Jesus, in that they imply, ‘We care for the poor and fight for justice for the disenfranchised.’
Ask them this: “Do you believe the Bible is the complete and inerrant Word of God?” Watch closely what happens next. They either do not know what the Bible says, or they do know, but do not believe it to be God-breathed.
Here is a list of the ways ‘Wokeness’ clashes with the Bible.
-Biblical marriage can only be between a man and a woman, because the Bible recognizes only male and female genders (Genesis 5:2).
-The Bible states that human life begins in the womb, thus making abortion murder (Luke 1:15).
-The Bible’s definition of love makes it racism to hate, censor, or refuse education, or employment to anyone because of their color, and that includes white people (Galatians 3:28)
-The Bible says Christ is the only way to salvation, so you cannot mix Christ and Islam (John 14:6)
-The Bible says that if you do not take care of your own family first, you are worse than an infidel and have denied the faith. Open borders does not help those coming to this country illegally. On the contrary, it has sent children into sexual slavery.
But what it does to your family is this: It permits criminals to roam your streets undocumented and possibly infected with a new strain of Covid. This is not only irresponsible—but according to the Bible—a sin against your own family (1 Timothy 5:8).
Woke Christians,’ if they do answer the question of the Bible’s divine inspiration, will answer by deflecting—that is, they will quote other scriptures (always out of context) in order to try to cancel the ones they do not agree with. The Bible must be taken as a whole, or not at all. And that, by the way, is another thing the Bible teaches (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Still, others will say that you can be Christian and not believe in the Bible. This is utter madness because it turns the central authority away from God and His Word and places it on subjective human feelings. So, now, you can call yourself a Christian and believe in anything. This is the same credo that drives the transgender movement, “I self-identify” (Jeremiah 17:9).
-The Bible instructs us to meet together and to resist government lockdowns based on our faith (Hebrews 10:25; Acts 4:19).
The ‘Woke Christian’ is agreeing to policies that are anti-Bible, and are agreeing with people who hate the Bible, and are at war with the Church.
“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers [do not make mismatched alliances with them or come under a different yoke with them that is inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership does right standing with God have with iniquity? Or how can light have fellowship with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? Or what has a believer in common with an unbeliever? What agreement can there be between a temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; even as God said, I will dwell in them and will walk in them, and I will be their God, and they shall be My people” (2 Corinthians 6:14-16).
If ‘woke Christians’ cannot answer the question about the authority of the Bible, likewise, they will not be able to answer this question, ‘How can you support an agenda that is unambiguously anti-Christ, and then call yourself Christian?’
