Biblical Truth Or Woke Truth?

Feb 4, 2023

For the Christian, something is true not because of our background, cultural standing, or lack of privilege. Something is true because it accords with the Word of God; “Truth is truth, whether I experience it or not. The Lord does not need my experience to validate His Word.… The Word of God speaks for itself.” (H. B. Charles).

In Biblical Christianity, truth is the Word of God. Our doctrine is grounded in the text, but ultimately in the God who has authored the text through human writers. In wokeness there is no such foundation or grounding for truth. Human narratives are the grounding of truth in a woke system. Wokeness simply asserts its commitments without foundation beyond its own narrative(s).
