Despite her array of worldly “credentials” and an illustrious résumé that spans from BET to Yale, “Pastor” Gabby Wilkes stands as little more than another woke Marxist pawn on the Evangelical social justice chessboard. Her claim to the title of “pastor” serves more as a badge of rebellion against God than anything remotely consistent with Christ-centered leadership. She is no shepherd of the Gospel, rather she is a standard-bearer for a diluted, worldly agenda.
Wilkes is an associate of Lisa Fields, the founder of the Jude 3 Project. But Fields isn’t just the founder of the Jude 3 Project—she’s a darling of the woke Evangelical circle and an indisputable heavyweight champion in their ideological arena. The Jude 3 Project is an organization that claims to be dedicated to “current issues and the intellectual struggles of Christians of African descent in the United States and abroad.” Hailed as a luminary by left-leaning mainstays like The Gospel Coalition, Fields is no stranger to the stage at Evangelical institutions like the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
Gabby Wilkes likens “white Christianity” to Easy Mac, drawing an utterly absurd comparison mac and cheese. She claims, “white Christianity is “Easy Mac. It’s easy to do. You put it on top. You stir it up a little bit. In God we trust. One nation under God.”
According to Wilkes, white Christians are basically dishing out runny, microwaveable theology, whereas black Christianity is akin to a time-honored baked mac and cheese that “requires some sweat and requires some recipes that have been passed down verbally and not written down.” In her view, the former is inferior, almost a counterfeit, while the latter is authentic and superior. The entire analogy not only mangles biblical orthodoxy but also pits one race against another in matters of faith, suggesting that white Christians are not only theologically lazy but also arrogantly assume their “Easy Mac” version of Christianity is the only one that exists.
These people are seriously caught up in a theological cult—one that doesn’t even resemble anything close to what the Bible describes as the Bride of Christ. They are free to believe what they want, as ridiculous as their beliefs are. But it would behoove them to stop calling themselves Christians and remove the name of Christ from their lips altogether. God will not be mocked, and this is a mockery of Christ. The saddest part is that these Evangelical institutions continue to platform these silly “ministries” that only seek to cause division within the true body of Christ.
