Hey 1689 Twitter, Reformed brothers and sisters, et al.,

Serious question and I sincerely want to know what you think:

A lot of professing Christians are concerned about economic justice and institutionalized racism in our country. I understand that many of you disagree.
What I don’t understand is the severity of your reaction, and the contempt that many of you have shown to fellow Christians who dedicate time to studying these matters—both in Scripture and otherwise.
Your contempt for these convictions means that one of two things must be the case:

A) You think that believers who are concerned with correcting material injustice *don’t* hear from God and *don’t* know how to interpret Scripture; or
B) You accept that believers who are concerned with correcting material injustice *do* hear from God and *do* know how to interpret Scripture but you don’t like what those believers have heard from God or how they interpret Scripture.
Do you think that those who care about material injustice are incompetent believers—do they not hear from God?
Or should they, having heard from God, abandon their convictions and adopt *your* theological priorities? On what basis? If you think this is a false dilemma, please say so.
