If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you know that, from time to time, I post biblically edifying, informative movies, videos, or documentaries on Tuesdays – ergo, “Movie Tuesday.”
Recently, my friend, Pastor Travis McNeely, released a six video series on Critical Race Theory featuring LSU law professor, Randy Trahan. In this series, Randy, a former proponent of CRT, describes his journey into – and out of – critical theory, explains what CRT is, and why it’s a danger to the church, particularly to Southern Baptists.
So, for the next few weeks, every Tuesday will be Movie Tuesday as we make our way through this video series. I would urge you to carefully watch each episode – especially if you’re Southern Baptist (if we actually have an SBC annual meeting this year, this issue is sure to come up) – so you’ll be informed and able to develop a biblical position on this egregious false teaching that is quickly spreading through the church.
Travis has developed a discussion guide to go with the videos, so as you watch, consider whether this might be a good series for your pastor to guide your church through, and pass it along to him.
If you were a Southern Baptist who was paying attention to the goings on at the 2019 annual meeting of the SBC, you’ll recall what might have been the most controversial resolution submitted in the history of the Southern Baptist Convention – Resolution 9. Originally written to condemn Critical Race Theory, the resolutions committee got a hold of Resolution 9 and rewrote it (as they’re allowed to) 180 degrees until it actually supported CRT. In today’s episode, Randy discusses what happened and why this is detrimental to the SBC. You’ll want to watch even if you’re not Southern Baptist to see what could happen if CRT comes to your denomination or church.
You may find my article The Mailbag: SBC Resolution 9- On Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality (and the additional resources linked therein) to be a helpful supplement to this episode.
Without further ado, here is part 5 of the series.
