Today we’re talking to Owen Strachan, a professor of theology at Grace Bible Theological Seminary, about critical race theory and its complete incompatibility with Christianity. Recently, the Salvation Army launched its “Let’s Talk About Racism” initiative, but the material in the program comes from the neo-Marxist view of CRT. Professor Strachan explains what the Salvation Army gets wrong and why the core tenets of critical race theory, which makes broad claims about oppression and racism, are totally different from the biblical definition of oppression and God’s call to impartiality. We also discuss the relationship between Marxism and CRT and how this ideology pops up in society in often innocuous ways.
