A prominent Critical Race Theorist who has infiltrated evangelical circles, who is supported strongly by Beth Moore of Living Proof Ministries, Russell Moore of the ERLC, and numerous contributors to The Gospel Coalition, recently told his social media followers it was okay for forsake the assembly of the saints.
His encouragement that people sin is in direct conflict with the word of God which says, “not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.“
Howard suggested that those who have experienced spiritual trauma (whatever that is) can avoid church if their feelings have been hurt.
Although Howard claims to be “Reformed” (he also claimed to have been an intern for Heartcry Missionary Society, which is another lie), he apparently doesn’t hold to the Reformed view of the Lord’s Day. Neither does he seem to have even the most basic respect for the Lord’s Day that’s common among those who don’t hold to classical Reformed traditions.
Kyle J. Howard was raised by both African and Caucasian parents, who were both attorneys, in a high-privilege home in an affluent suburb. Because Critical Race Theory requires the narrative of victimology, Howard made up a false life story that included secretly belonging to a gang and having taken part in the thug life, but the story couldn’t be further from the truth. Because Critical Race Theory embraces “story-telling” over objective facts and empiricism, we’re not allowed (supposedly) to doubt his testimony or question his fantastical experiences.
Well, baloney to that.
Howard uses the word “abuse” through the analytical tool of Critical Race Theory, and refers to the perceived subjective experiences of a coalition of minority identity groups that include ethnic minorities, women, homosexuals, the transgender, and other kinds of (real or perceived) victims.
Critical Race Theory is not a friend of the church, but – like Howard – is an enemy of it.
Biblical advice to those “hurting” would be something along the lines of Colossians 3:13…
Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
However, Critical Race Theory is designed to divide the church, rather than unite it. Consider what Howard posted on his Facebook page today.
To Howard, white ministers who want whites and blacks to worship together are bad. He wants segregation, division, and continued hard-feelings. It is not of Christ.
It is anti-Christ. It is anti-Church. It is anti-God. It is anti-Gospel.
