Critical Theory: A Disastrous, Unbiblical Worldview

You've probably heard the terms "intersectionality," "cis-gender", "white privilege," "white fragility," "heteronormativity," and "antiracism." But you may not be familiar with the social philosophy from which these terms are derived: critical theory. In reality, these words and concepts have been working their way through academia for decades, perpetuated by disciplines such as Post-Colonial Studies, Queer Theory, Critical Pedagogy, Whiteness Studies, and Critical Race Theory, among others. These fields can be placed within the larger discipline of “critical theory,” an ideology more popularly known as “cultural Marxism," a problematic worldview which comes loaded with problems and is largely incompatible with orthodox Christianity. In the following interview, Christian apologist and theoretical chemist Dr. Neil Shenvi joins Allie Stuckey to break down the complexities of critical theory and the ways it's destroying cultural dialogue and even infiltrating evangelical churches.
