Throwback Thursday ~ Critical Race Theory Video Series, Parts 1-6

Originally published February 9, 2021

For six weeks, in January-February 2021, I ran this series of videos on Critical Race Theory created by my friend, Pastor Travis McNeely, and 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.

I am running the series again (all six parts today) in hopes of helping my fellow Southern Baptists prepare for the upcoming annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention in June. CRT/I will be a front and center issue.

Pastor Mike Stone (anticipated nominee for SBC president) will be making a motion at this year’s annual meeting tentatively titled: Resolution on the Incompatibility of Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality with The Baptist Faith and Message, as something of an antidote to 2019’s Resolution 9. (Read more about Resolution 9, here.)

Any Southern Baptist from a qualifying church can co-submit (sign on in support) this resolution, even if you’re not a messenger, even if you’re not attending the Convention. Click the link above, download the form, fill it out, have your pastor or church clerk sign it, and upload it TODAY, Thursday, May 27 (deadline).

If you are Southern Baptist, I encourage you to serve as a messenger from your church and vote to support the above resolution and any other denunciation of Resolution 9 or Critical Race Theory.

But even if you’re not Southern Baptist, it’s urgent that you understand what CRT/I is and make sure it doesn’t infiltrate your 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.

Movie Tuesday: Critical Race Theory – Part 6

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.

For the last few weeks, every Tuesday has been Movie Tuesday as we’ve made our way through this video series. Today is the final video. If you haven’t already, 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.

In this brief, final episode, Randy wraps up the series by explaining how CRT attacks the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture.

Without further ado, here is part 6 of the series.

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.

Maybe you’ve been blessed in that you haven’t seen CRT in your church, your denomination, or any Christian organizations you’re connected to. Or maybe you have encountered CRT in one of these venues, but you weren’t aware of it because you weren’t exactly sure what it looks like “in real life”. Today, Randy gives us some real world examples of what CRT looks like as it has appeared in several well known evangelical organizations, including the Southern Baptist Convention.

Without further ado, here is part 4 of the series.

Maybe after three weeks of seeing a video on CRT in your inbox or newsfeed, you’re thinking, “What’s the big deal? After all, isn’t CRT just a helpful ‘analytical tool’ we can use for thinking about race and solving racial problems?”. In today’s episode, Randy helpfully explains that CRT is a big deal, and gives us nine reasons why.
