SUMMARY: In clear terms Oak Cliff Bible (Dallas, TX) pastor Tony Evans looks at three aspects of critical race theory (CRT) – the original definition according the originators of the theory, the crisis and confusion over CRT today, and how as Christians we should respond to CRT.
Evans is a master at breaking down complex subjects into easily understandable terms as he takes the complicated, layered, and fluid history of CRT and breaks it down into terms everyone can understand. This is the best resource on CRT from a Christian perspective thus far.
KEY QUOTE: “If you are spending more time discussing CRT then your are KRT (Kingdom Race Theory – Eph. 2) then you have been tricked by the world. You should know about it. You should understand it…but now in Christ there are new rules. And if we abide by the new rules in Christ then we will create something new. So while they are fighting out there, we have peace in here because we are operating on one new man.”
