When the vain philosophy and empty deceit of the “woke church” movement takes one captive, logic, reason, and rational thinking cease to exist in the mind of that person. And this movement has taken many Evangelicals captive–from Southern Baptist pastors like Thabiti Anyabwile, David Platt, and Mark Dever to leaders of the most heretical denominations that exist on the planet.
Irrational thinking and the lack of reason are largely associated with progressivism and liberalism–and progressivism and liberalism are largely associated with the “woke church” movement. It’s why Critical Race Theory, for example, has taken over progressive congregations. Critical Race Theory is not backed by objective facts or sound reason, instead, it is grounded in the subjective personal experiences and assumptions of a manufactured “oppressed” class.
This same methodology–or lack thereof–is how such an unreasonable person can reason within his own mind that he is a “Christian atheist”–yet, still preach from the pulpit of a Presbyterian church.
Andre Henry, who is regularly platformed by the National Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) does just this, joined self-described “Christian atheist,” Jo Luehmann to explain how they stopped believing in God several years ago, but still believes in Jesus–because Jesus is the embodiment of divinity within them.
“I don’t believe in God. At all. But I believe in Christ, and to me, Christ is just the embodiment of divinity in me, in you, in all of humanity. So for all intents and purposes, I’m a Christian atheist…I just tell people I’m a Christian to avoid all of the ‘what do you mean?'”
Andre: “I stopped believing in God, as well, I think it was 2016…Someone told me that if I did mushrooms that I would believe in God again.”
All of this is because, well, “white Jesus” and stuff.
