We often hear certain phrases used in woke Christendom that sound biblical. However, like most cults, the cult of anti-racism redefines biblical terms to mean something completely different from its biblical definition.
Today’s term is “fruit of the Spirit.”
Term: Fruit of the Spirit
Biblical definition: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” –Galatians 5:22–23 (ESV)
Woke definition: (1) total submission on the account of white people to the narrative of wokeness. (2) characterized by the general attitude that white people have no authority to speak on the subject of racism and must place themselves in a perpetual state of listening and learning. (3) acknowledgment by white people of their a.) white privilege and b.) complicity in systemic racism by the very virtue of their skin tone.
Example: Latasha Morrison says that white people need to display the fruit of the Spirit when having conversations with black people about their experiences of racism. What she means is that despite their grounding in objective reality, white people need to submit themselves to the narrative on racism.
Example: Jarvis Williams says that “there are diverse Christians hurting b/c of their experiences of racism or b/c of the lack of the fruit of the Spirit in many race conversations.” What he means is that there are white people who still refuse to make themselves subservient to the “experiences” of black people despite their lack of grounding in objective reality.
