The national debate over Critical Race Theory (CRT) continues to grow and deepen. Some Christians seemingly find CRT legitimate, useful, and nonthreatening to Christian theological commitments. This view is incorrect. CRT is in fundamental conflict with Christianity due to its misguided perspectives on law, morality, truth, and justice. Although CRT is more than “just a legal theory,” this article examines CRT’s legal origins and outlook, showing the inevitable tension between its claims and a Christian understanding of reality. This article also calls attention to several policy proposals suggested by CRT scholars to demonstrate how they are incompatible with Christian views of divine moral law and procedural justice.
