The conservative governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis’ recent announcement that he intends to transform a woke, financially failing liberal arts public university in the Sunshine State into a classical liberal arts college based on traditional educational values like the search for truth, merit-based scholarship and achievement, and the free academic debate of issues from different points of view has drawn fierce criticism from the leftist establishment.
DeSantis is pro-actively responding to the complaints of conservative students attending major Florida universities who are encountering difficulties in achieving their academic goals in what they described as a hostile anti-white, anti-Christian, and anti-American campus culture that has been infected by the Marxist Critical Race Theory (CRT) ideology.
So why are the CRT ideologues, in particular, so hostile to Jesus Christ and the Gospel of the Kingdom of God? Well, at its base the issue is about who has the authority to say what is right from wrong, what is righteousness or evil. Should we worship the God of the Bible or the fashionable idols of the Woke? Who is it that has the worldview that most accurately reflects reality; who has the Truth? The whole Truth and nothing but the Truth?
Christians understand and believe Jesus when He said, “I am ·the way, and the truth, and the life [that is to say, the one and only true way to have life]. ·The only way to the Father [of all life] is through me,” John 14:6, Expanded version.
For that reason, the CRT/Woke ideologues understand that Christians who base their lives and beliefs on the teachings of the Bible present the biggest obstacles to their path to power because they will always promote the truth of reality that the Gospel presents rather than the twisted version of reality presented by the all too carnal CRT/Woke ideologues.
