For "Woke" Apostolics

In Washington, D.C., thousands kneel at the foot of a monument to Martin Luther King Jr. in penance for the sins presumed to be endemic to their race. On the streets of New York City, a Black man approaches numerous White women and demands that they bow and apologize for who they are. Dozens comply as he videotapes their confessions.

Democratic leaders, wearing the priestly garb of kente stoles, kneel in religious surrender at our nation’s capital.

Evangelical churches, too numerous to count, post “laments” on their websites mourning the “unjust fabric of society.” They call on “those who have light skin to confess their sin of willful obliviousness” and plead indulgence for the assumed immorality that comes with their class and color.

Theological seminary presidents issue decrees that talk of “confessing, systemic racism,” and the presumption of evil that is resident in various shades of melanin.

Welcome to the Church of Holy Wokeness.

Welcome to a church that preaches collective blame rather than individual repentance, a church of enablement rather than evangelism, a church of riots rather than revival.

Welcome to a church of “collective guilt” rather than one that preaches personal sin.

Welcome to a neo-Marxist church that talks more about class conflict than the good news of salvation, a church of division rather than unity, one of us versus them, of the 99% versus the one, a church of the proletariat versus the bourgeoisie, of balkanization rather than the B-attitudes. Welcome to a church that has more in common with the Cultural Revolution than it does with the Cross of Christ.

Welcome to a church of racists pretending to stand against racism, a church that marches for “love” while fomenting hate. Welcome to a church that is shamelessly intolerant while it pretends to be tolerant, a “non-judgmental” church that rushes to judgment.

Welcome to a church that categorizes people by the color of their skin rather than the content of their character.

Welcome to an “affirming” church, a church that tells you you’re “born that way” rather than you must be “born again.”

Welcome to a church that bows before men while standing against God.

Welcome to a church that worships what it sees in the mirror while denying what it reads in the Bible.

Welcome to a church that has exchanged the truth of God for a lie, a church that worships the created rather than the Creator; a church that has been given over to a debased mind and reprobate heart.

This is the church of intersectionality over the inerrancy. Pay attention to its high priests. Listen to their words. Hear their liturgy: the virtueless virtue signaling; the dog whistles; the shouts to redistribute power and property. Learn their doctrine: the elevation of the group over the individual; the belief in government more than God; the parroting of Marx, Lenin and Mao; the ignorance of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Jesus.

This is America’s church. It is the Church of Group Guilt. It is the cult of “Holy Wokeness.” It is nothing short of a new religion; one that demeans men, degrades women, sacrifices children, elevates revenge and encourages blame. This is a church whose leaders’ minds are dark with confusion. Their theology is an inch deep with compassion and a mile wide with compromise.

Welcome to the Great Awokening!

Bow in submission. Pay homage to your gods.

“In the last days, people will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God — having a form of godliness but denying its power.

“Have nothing to do with such people … Be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke, and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.” — St. Paul

So people were never lovers of themselves prior to the time of the Apostle Paul?

I’m talking about the scripture placed at the very end. This portion of scripture is always employed when impending disaster in current events are being discussed. Was the apsotle writing about BLM or ANTIFA?

I see your point. He was referring to the "last days" of Israel before 70 A.D.

Partial Preterism.

And the many generations that followed that one had no "signs" to look for to keep them awake and looking for the Lords coming.

They teach this in the Church Of Christ. Jesus could come any day. All signs fulfilled in 70ad.

Same effect as pre trib rapture.
