Wokeness and the Gospel
June 11, 2021 2:00pm
This is a conference on the “new moralism,” sometimes described and promoted under the title of “wokeness,” and how this ideology is incompatible with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The ideology of wokeness describes a broad consensus among individuals who describe themselves as having been “awakened” (hence the past tense, woke) to oppression in areas of race, sexuality and social class. While the ideology of wokeness is thoroughly secular and even antichristian in its origins, increasing numbers of evangelicals have uncritically aligned themselves with this movement that is in fundamental ways opposed to a biblical worldview. This conference seeks to highlight the poisonous roots of this movement that lead to both a misdiagnosis of and faulty remedies for modern man’s spiritual and social condition. We then seek to point the way to genuinely biblical solutions that are only to be found in the Gospel.
