I have been reading the book, Beyond Biden: Rebuilding the America we Love, by Newt Gingrich. I have to hand it to Newt for learning and understanding all the stuff he has put in his book, especially about wokeism and racism and critical race theory, etc. It is so complex to wade through it all. And it has its root in Marxism; and its goal is to destroy America. I feel so sorry for all the black people who are so taken in by it all. They have already gone through enough. Now it seems that they are forced to go through it all over again.
America is not a racist country. But we are now being told that everything in America is racist and that it all has to be torn down and “built back better.” This is why they are endeavoring to rewrite our language—because everything we say and do is embedded with racism. For example, the term hiking, baseball, Star Wars, specialty coffee, classical music, the candy industry; those terms they say are racist. And we have to get rid of them. I suppose they are thinking that if black people are not substantially involved in those things, the terms can’t be anything but racist. And so, anything where there has not been an equal involvement between blacks and whites is racist (but I’m sure there is more to it than that).
But for those who tear it all down, aren’t they also being racist? And if we do tear everything down and build it over, won’t all the new terms and ideas and culture be a new racism? Can man in his sinful nature get rid of the sin of racism? No! Only God who is perfect can do that. Man needs a new heart, a new self, which will come only through a conversion, only through redemption through Jesus Christ. He will redeem us from our old sinful racist nature. Then, for the first time we can know how to overcome racism and how to be whole. And then when we sin again, we can know where to go to find forgiveness.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things past away; behold, new things have come (2 Corinthians 5:17).
