When providing services in the health and human services fields, whether as a social worker, nurse, counselor, minister, human service provider, or even when teaching in these service oriented professions as a university professor, some Christians may experience internal conflict between their orthodox or Catholic biblical worldview and their profession’s new cultural shifts that emphasize values of “diversity, inclusion, and equity at all costs”.
The goal of this presentation is to focus on clarifying some key tenets of CRT and then explore some key problems with CRT in light of Biblical truth, including the concept of sin and redemptive nature of faith. Along the way, Dr. Owens would also like to explore what is “redeemable” within CRT, and to discuss ways that compassionate, ethical Christians can still pursue biblical values of empathic care, justice, and loving thy neighbor while not compromising Scriptural truths.
