Using D.E.I. to Fundamentally Change the Church

Thoroughly Equipped Season 2 Episode 38

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has been a hot topic in the economic sphere, but it’s actually not limited there. This anti-racist infiltration has made a huge mark in the education realm and now has for the last couple of years gained access to Christian institutions and organizations.

Under the last step given to white bridge builders in the Be the Bridge 101 guide, Be the Bridge exposes their desire to fundamentally change the church by defeating the white supremacy within it. How do they believe this work is done? Through Diversity, Equity and Inclusion training But not merely diversifying the leadership, but working toward equity and inclusion of, not only race, but theological views.

How might diversity, equity, and inclusion come into your church? Let’s dive in…

Topics include:

  • How Be the Bridge uses a false historical narrative to urge it’s readers to become “Accomplices” within the American Church.
  • How Anti-Racist  presuppositions can influence how one sees the  Church’s role in the Abolitionist Movement
  • The difference between diversity, equity, and inclusion and how they are being used to challenge Headship and Authority in the Church
  • How D.E.I. is ultimately a rebellion against God and Christ’s institution of Authority in the Church.
