My, off the cuff, thoughts on political correctnessPolitical correctness, which is now the “required” standard, is pretty much about making everyone feel comfortable and unoffended. We don’t want anyone to feel bad about anything.
This falls into the liberal agenda of saying that everything’s okay; you’re okay, I’m okay. The fact is, you’re not OK and I’m not okay and we’re all going to hell without Jesus.
It’s not loving to not tell people the truth, that without Christ you are going to hell, but that is an inconvenient and uncomfortable truth. In First Corinthians 6 it’s pointed out that anyone who does wrong will not inherit the kingdom of God. It gives a list of 10 different beliefs and lifestyles that are not acceptable. Two of those 10 are directly related to the LGBT lifestyle. But all of us would be included in at least one item on the list of unaccepatbles, somewhere at some point. Christ did not come to this earth to make everyone feel good, he came to tell the truth, which was not accepted by many.
He claimed a very offensive truth, that He is the only way. Political correctness is more concerned about not offending that it is about sharing the truth.
Instead of using “Our citizenship is in heaven” as an excuse to not be involved, it should be the contrary because our main concern is no longer the rules of this world.
Something feels very wrong about all this political correctness stuff. We seem to be more concerned about getting along than we are about sharing truth. Yes, we need to get along but not to the exclusion of truth. Can we really get along that well until truth is central?
Jesus as well as Paul, Peter and the rest, shared the truth all the time. Our relationships are going to be very shallow if we side step the truth to stay comfortable and appear nice.
My friends thoughts on political correctnessMy verses are The Great Commission where it says “…teach them EVERYTHING I commanded.” That is a lot more than the simple gospel or a happy talk verse or two. And the main passage was the whole of chapter 1 of Isa. I’ll paraphrase:My people are dumber than a jackass. Read it! That is exactly what it says.They are rebellious and EVIL. Why? Because they don’t bring JUSTICE to the land. The whole chapter is civil government language of courts, lawyers, laws, rulers, cities, countries, foreigners, pleading cases of widows, orphans, bribes. This is not synagogue or church language it is the institution of civil government that God ordained for us to take care of.They don’t connect the judgements God is bringing upon them to their lack of Justice in the land.Because of this God rejects their worship practice and refuses to HEAR THEIR PRAYERS.In the end he says he will BURN THEM UP.
That is what I think of ignorant Christians who forget we have a God who actually expects us to not just love but to execute judgement with the sword HE gave us…Civil Government. I have DEEP passion against people who constantly cherry pick a couple of verses and make false doctrine from a verse or two.
Read Psalms 109 and 69. David prays to God to burn people in Hell and even have no pity on the sinners kids. What do these sweet talkers have to say about Biblical prayers of that nature?
Yes I am for love, grace, mercy, and all that, but that is only one side of the Christian coin. If a coin has heads (or even love) on both sides of the coin it is a counterfeit.
Everywhere Peter, Paul, and Jesus went there was civil uprising because they challenged the status quo of government. Why were they all executed by civil government anyway?
