The Gospel Coalition Contributor Says If You Don’t Believe in Social Justice, You’re a Heretic

Justin Giboney, a co-founder of the social Marxist organization known as the AND Campaign and a prominent The Gospel Coalition (TGC) contributor, says that a rejection of redemptive social justice is a rejection of orthodoxy. To phrase this in simpler terms, Giboney is essentially saying that unless you’re on board with the Marxist oppressor/oppressed ideology and its tenets of class warfare, you’re a heretic.

Yep, he said that–out loud.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack. Members who subscribe to us on Substack will gain exclusive access to all of our work, free of ads and other annoying pop-ups, as well as member-only access to our podcast archive and controversial moderated content.

He goes on to suggest that Christians who aren’t all in on this Marxist ideology are more ideologically conservative than biblical. Let’s be clear, the Bible is the objective standard of conservatism; anything that deviates from the Scriptures in any way cannot be considered conservative.

What Giboney and his cohorts–like Jemar Tisby, Tim Keller, Matt Chandler, David Platt, and Kyle Howard–continue to promote is, in actuality, heresy. In fact, these people have no idea what the gospel is; to them, social justice is the gospel. It is in the same category as the Galatian heresy of adding to the gospel.

Tim Keller, in one sermon, said posed the question “How do you know you’re saved by faith?” He responded to this with a gospel of social justice, stating,

You care about the poor. When you see people without resources, your heart goes out to them. If it doesn’t, maybe you’re saved, but you’re lacking the evidence of salvation. Justification leads to justice. Justice is the sign of justification. It’s all through the Bible.

You can see the entire sermon here.

As I wrote in a previous article, Social Justice is Not the Gospel, It’s Heresy, the gospel is not.

  • The gospel is NOT fixing social injustices in this world, be them real or perceived.
  • The gospel is NOT acknowledging “white privilege” and turning from it.
  • The gospel is NOT reparations.
  • The gospel is NOT redeeming the culture.
  • The gospel is NOT loving others or seeking justice.

The gospel is clearly defined by Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4,

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures
