Jemar Tisby, an idolater of skin color, is one of the most notorious left-wing race baiters in the Evangelical Church. Tisby recently went on Latasha Morrison’s — who once held a student conference and had all of the white people in the audience stand up and repeat a prayer of lament for their white skin — podcast to denounce “Christian Nationalism,” or Christians who reject Critical Race Theory.

Morrison asked Tisby about Critical Race Theory, “I don’t even know what it is, so I know I’m not coming from that direction.”

Tisby then responded, “You bring up an important point. I want to emphasize, these are labels that other people are putting on us.” He continued, “I need people to understand, if they haven’t already, that it wasn’t a bunch of us black Christians who are advocating for racial justice running around with banners that said Critical Race Theory, or I am a Critical Race Theorist.”

He then blamed “Christian nationalists” for labeling him that way. “They put that on us. They meaning, here’s how I would describe them, either as fundamentalist Christians of the old school, like 1920’s kind of fundamentalist, ‘here are all the boxes that you have to check to be our kind of Christian.’ And anyone who deviates on any one of these points is not even Christian…”

Of course, nobody — literally nobody — has said that or even implied that. The kind of theological impact that Jemar Tisby and the “racial justice” Evangelicals advocate for falls into the category of “another gospel,” that which the Apostle Paul referred to as “anathema.” They are heretics — they do not fit within the orthodox standards of Christianity set forth in the Scriptures and systematized in the historic church creeds. Nevermind that their movement is filled with pro-abortion, anti-religious freedom, pro-homosexual, anti-police, pro-lawlessness ideology.

Nevertheless, Tisby paints orthodox, Bible-believing Christians as “fundamentalists” and “Christian nationalists.” He continues, “… or, ‘Christian nationalist,’ which I’m sure we’ll get into later, so when I say ‘they,’ that’s who I’m talking about…”

At this point, Tisby cuts into his diatribe against orthodox Christianity to say that black people who partake in this don’t do it on their on volition, but are “trotted out” by white people to legitimize their movement.

“And by the way, this can span races and ethnicities because I’ve seen them trot out people of color and black people to parrot these talking points to try to give them some legitimacy.”

Tisby obviously doesn’t believe that black people should be able to think for themselves and when they do, and they happen to align with theologically and politically conservative views, they are just “trotted out” by white people to parrot their talking points. Who does it sound like is the racist, here?
