James Cone Reveals What WOKE, Black Lives Matter, & CRT is Really All About

“Black theology refuses to accept a god who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community.”

James Cone
Black Theologian 
“Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy.” 

James Cone
Black Theologian 
“If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer and we better kill him.”

James Cone
Black Theologian 
“When we look at what whiteness has done to the minds of men in this country, we can see clearly what the New Testament meant when it spoke of the principalities and powers. To speak of Satan and his powers becomes not just a way of speaking but a fact of reality. When we can see a people who are controlled by an ideology of whiteness, then we know what reconciliation must mean. The coming of Christ means a denial of what we thought we were. It means destroying the white devil in us. Reconciliation to God means that white people are prepared to deny themselves (whiteness), take up the cross (blackness), and follow Christ (black ghetto).”

James Cone — Black Theology and Black Power
Quoted in The Decline of African American Theology: From Biblical Faith to Cultural Captivity by Thabiti M. Anyabwile (Orbis), p.150

When your Pastor or Church caters in any way to CRT, WOKE, or Black Lives Matter — when they suggest that whites have been uniquely oppressive over and above all other peoples and so now they need to somehow make up for all that by bowing and scraping over every real or imagined complaint of the cultural Marxist minority community — when they communicate that inter-racial marriage is perfectly normative, they are at that moment seeking to accomplish what Cone desired and that is the destruction of the White Christian people.

I am a Pastor of a small Church in Mid-Michigan who delights in my family, my congregation and my calling. I am postmillennial in my eschatology. Paedo-Calvinist Covenantal in my Christianity Reformed in my Soteriology Presuppositional in my apologetics Familialist in my family theology Agrarian in my regional community social order belief Christianity creates culture and so Christendom in my national social order belief Mythic-Poetic / Grammatical Historical in my Hermeneutic Pre-modern, Medieval, & Feudal before Enlightenment, modernity, & postmodern Reconstructionist / Theonomic in my Worldview One part paleo-conservative / one part micro Libertarian in my politics Systematic and Biblical theology need one another but Systematics has pride of place Some of my favorite authors, Augustine, Turretin, Calvin, Tolkien, Chesterton, Nock, Tozer, Dabney, Bavinck, Wodehouse, Rushdoony, Bahnsen, Schaeffer, C. Van Til, H. Van Til, G. H. Clark, C. Dawson, H. Berman, R. Nash, C. G. Singer, R. Kipling, G. North, J. Edwards, S. Foote, F. Hayek, O. Guiness, J. Witte, M.

It is my hope that people will be challenged to reconsider what are considered the givens of the current culture. Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.
