Are ‘social justice warriors’ a danger to the Gospel? In August 2018 a group of conservative Christians in the USA, led by John MacArthur, released The Statement On Social Justice And The Gospel to take a stand against the church being influenced by “questionable sociological, psychological, and political theories presently permeating our culture”. Some of the affirmations and denials in the document caused controversy among both evangelicals and progressives for its statements on political activism and racism.
James White of Alpha and Omega ministries, was one of the framers of the document and a key signatory. He debates the Statement with Australian pastor and justice activist Jarrod McKenna, founder of Common Grace, on whether the concepts of privilege, intersectionality and identity politics should have any part to play in the Gospel.
