I’ve been hearing an argument from our own side of the critical race theory (CRT) fault line as of late. The argument basically goes, “Use biblical terminology. The biblical term is ‘ethnicity’ (ethnos in Greek), not race. Race doesn’t exist.” I see a couple of problems with this line of argumentation. First, CRT advocates are […]
We had a total of three current and former Things Above Us authors at the Wokeness and the Gospel conference this past weekend. It was truly a joy meeting new people, catching up with old friends, and digging into some solid teaching! I plan to have more later concerning the conference itself. For now, please be in […]
John McWhorter is a linguist and an assistant professor of English and comparative literature at Columbia University. I heavily cited his work earlier when previewing Voddie Baucham’s Fault Lines and discussing McWhorter’s contention that the word “Antiracism,” referring to the new woke religion of critical race theory, ought to be capitalized as a proper noun.

This year we’ll walk through the entire book of Ephesians and learn what it means to Walk in Love. The advertised […]
All sound theology flows from a proper and biblical understanding of the atonement of Christ. Juxtaposed to this, every heresy or agenda in some way will distort or redefine the cross. Knowing the biblical reason(s) for why Christ died is critical, essential, and foundational to immunizing ourselves from the heretical diseases that seem to abound […]
Nestled within 1 Corinthians 11, we find a likely familiar passage concerning the Lord’s Table which pertains to the current social media conversation on racism and socioeconomic class. Critical race theory is probably the last topic I want to write about at the moment, but it certainly is the topic du jour, so let’s take it on […]
