Critical Theory and Intersectionality

The spirit of the age says all human beings find their value in group identity, can be divided into oppressor and oppressed, have varying degrees of moral authority based on their level of oppression and can find salvation through activism with the goal of social liberation, but the Spirit of God says all human beings find their value in having been created equal in the image of God, have fallen in sin which includes expressions of oppression, can find salvation and reconciliation through repentance from sin and faith in Christ and can dwell with God forever in beautiful diversity. In part 8 of Deciphering the Cultural Zeitgeist, Pastor Dan Cox reads from Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:21-25, Ephesians 2:11-16, and Revelation 7:9-10.
