Believing that sin has corporate, not just individual, effects is not CRT.
Believing that every human heart is prone to prejudice against other groups is not CRT.
Believing that diverse perspectives can help you arrive at a fuller understanding of Scripture's objective truth is not CRT.
Accounting for racial disparities in the church (Acts 6:1) is not CRT.
Preferring one another and mourning with those who mourn are not CRT.
Believing that some problems are solved in part by legal remedy, and not just preaching the gospel, is not CRT.
Believing that the Bible is sufficient for what it intends to be sufficient for, and that truth gained from general revelation and common grace (e.g., science, the social sciences, psychology, etc.) is still God's truth, is not CRT.
Critiquing the reigning political order from the perspective of the kingdom of Christ is not CRT.
Celebrating diversity in the body of Christ and acknowledging that racial diversity will adorn the coming kingdom (Rev. 7:9) are not CRT.
I don't doubt that CRT/"wokeness" can be taken too far in secular universities or corporate boardrooms or wherever. But finding some superficial similarities between those extremes and what fellow orthodox, evangelical Christians are saying and then demonizing them is just wrong.
Wrong in both senses: untrue and immoral.
This whole thread explicitly said what was *not* CRT and people still took it as defending CRT.

"So you are insulating yourself from hearing contrary opinions?"

Nope. I'll let people I know in real life and serious, long-form content provide that pushback. Not keyboard warriors.
I slip on this all the time, but my best Twitter experience is when I keep it mostly light-hearted (music, movies, sports, food) and when I go serious, it's quotes from books I'm reading. Tweet-threads on controversial topics have their place but should be carefully chosen.

The problems with Buice’s original tweet weren’t limited to this issue. But let’s talk about this list of quotes. All they show is the doctrine of appropriation. These sources would all affirm inseparable operations as well. So yes it’s the wrath of the Triune God.
Reformation and post-Reformation Reformed sources were much more careful and nuanced on the atonement and its trinitarian dimensions than a lot of contemporary “Reformed“ preaching and teaching.
Also what’s up with the tattle tag?
