CRT or Critical Race Theory is all the rage these days. I provide a simple explanation of what CRT is, where it came from and why it’s become so controversial. As with most issues, one of the toughest problems is defining it.

Bebbington Quadrilateral

Biblicism: All essential spiritual truth can be found on its pages.
Conversionism: The belief that human beings need to be converted.
Crucicentrism: A focus on the atoning work of Jesus on the cross.
Activism: The belief that the Gospel needs to be expressed in effort.

The clip of Lecrae discussing his faith comes from an interview on “The Experiment”. This discussion from “The Argument” on CRT influenced my thoughts.
