Awake, Not Woke: A Christian Response to the Cult of Progressive Ideology
*We experienced some technical issues at the beginning of the lecture but were able to resolve them within the first few minutes.*
The long-simmering crisis that grips our culture has exploded in recent years, leaving us divided and intransigent. Discourse seems futile when we are no longer a people with shared principles or even a shared understanding of reality. What seems obvious to one person is patently absurd to the next. Noelle Mering, co-author of Theology of Home, details how this collapse of meaning is not accidental but instead has been plotted for decades and now presents in its current form as Woke ideology. She unmasks this ideology by examining its history, major players, premises, and tactics, showing us that “Wokeness” at its core is an ideology of rupture. Indeed, it is an ideology with fundamentalist and even cult-like characteristics that is on a collision course with Christianity.
