[quote]ETA - I think its somewhat disingenuous to state that race is entirely a social construct while recommending that Christians need to read a book entitled "White Fragility".[/quote] Fair critique. Ethnicity is not race, but I see your point. Does it really matter? ...

[quote]They spent more time agreeing with CRT than critiquing it and encouraged people to buy a book, thereby financially supporting this despicable movement. [/quote] I don't think reading White Fragility is a bad idea for anyone. You've got to know the other side if you want to criticize it. ...

[quote]It wasn't until Ligon Duncan's essay that he saw that this was important. I've seen this guy go out of his way to help black people down on their luck. He's helped me deliver Christmas gifts to needy families. He isn't a racist. But his worldview shaped his view of the flag. [/quote] Wow. Co...

re: The Gospel Coalition on Critical Theory (a great primer) - bayoubengals88
[quote]When having these sorts of discussions, it's very important to understand people in terms of the worldviews they espouse, because worldviews are lenses that people use to interpret reality. Attacking the argument without addressing the underlying worldview is like treating a symptom without a...

The Gospel Coalition on Critical Theory (a great primer) - bayoubengals88
There's some good advice here no matter who you are, like educating yourself before you speak, and engaging with specific arguments instead of presumptions. I cut a few paragraphs, but it's not a long read if you want to check out the article. [link=(https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/in...

re: I had to call the police for the first time in my 43-year old life yesterday - bayoubengals88
This is nothing new. Probably the result of 15-20 years of marital issues that have gone unchecked. It is human depravity. Liberals think that humanity is good at is essence. Christians think that humanity is inherently flawed and fallen. Liberals are shocked by atrocities. Christians aren't....

re: Pornography: the seed of today's anarchy. - bayoubengals88
[quote]BugAC[/quote] I’m doing nothing other than pointing out that speaking in absolutes (like 100% and [i]nothing[/i]) automatically demonstrates your lack of thoughtful consideration to someone who has been taught to think critically. It’s ok to have opinions, but to say something with com...

re: Great lecture on Postmodernism. All we are now seeing started in the Universities - bayoubengals88
[quote]which makes it appear you have examples in mind is all. As to why it makes a difference, I guess I mean are your objections on how "Postmodernism" is a tool and not an actual set of beliefs? I'm not trying to be combative, I'm genuinely interested. [/quote] From the two times I started liste...

[quote]Can you expound upon that? As someone who's recently discovered his New Discourses site I'd like to know where you think he's being sloppy and to what extent it makes a difference. [/quote] Give me something to listen to. Why does it make a difference? Because feeding people what they wa...
