Conventionally conservative groups like the Southern Baptist Convention have tried to champion Critical Theory, the analytical tool of Cultural Marxism devised by the Frankfurt School of the Weimar Republic and transplanted to the United States by men like John Dewey. This podcast is a simplified explanation of Critical Theory and a brief critique, showing that it is contra-biblical, self-refuting, and culturally destructive. To attempt to maintain it as a critical tool “within a Christian context” is to betray a fundamental misunderstanding of what it actually is.
