POLITICALLY CORRECT, AND FOOLISH!

“Why do ye also transgress the commandments of God by your tradition? For God commanded, saying, ‘honor thy father and mother; and, he that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.’ But ye say, ‘whosoever shall say to his father or his mother ‘it is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;’ and honor not his father or his mother, he shall be free.’ Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, this people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoreth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” – Mat. 15:9.

Political Correctness can be viewed as conforming with the ideology of those in power. In the Jewish tradition, people were required to financially support their aged parents. However, Jesus pointed out it was politically correct for the Pharisees and scribes to accept this support as a gift to God. How did political correctness evolve? At the core of this process is disobedience, and it involves the need of the spiritual destitutes (i.e. those lacking spirituality) to rid society of God. This truly is the goal of any secularist worth his salt. If you’re blessed without following God, why regard His commandments?

Many people have arrived at the pinnacle (or highest degree) of success without giving God glory. Although Godly principles were used to acquire their wealth, a true seculaist will refuse to admit that (Gen. 4). Just as the Pharisees and scribes circumvented (counteracted) God’s commandment at the top of this paragraph, certain people want to create and maintain traditions that tolerate laxity in obeying God’s law.

For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into Heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High” – Isa. 14:13-14. The Evil One wants to be “like the Most High”, and so does his children, thinking that such an achievement is possible without divinity!

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own; for he is a liar, and the father of itJhn. 8:44. The devil’s big lie involves faith in sense perception rather than faith in God (Jam. 3:15). This of course lead the spiritually blind to believe that they don’t have to really follow the directives of a Spirit, thus these souls won’t ever seek salvation! 

Possibly, being a secularist, you think being a “good” person is our only requirement, or that it’s “cool” or “fair” to be godlike – to a point. However, Heb. 12:14 reads, “follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” To be holy is to be sacred, saintly, pure, consecrated, and awe-inspiring. When you’re holy you don’t want to just be godly to a point – you want to be pure. You don’t want to be just a “good” person – you want to be saintly. You don’t want to be just “trying to make it” – you want to be inspiring!  

You don’t put profits over prophets (Prv. 8:11). You make it a habit to thank and praise God so that you can be blessed in His presence (Psa. 100:4). You don’t seek loopholes in God’s authority because you’re a soldier ready for “the battle of that great day of God Almighty (Rev. 16:14)!” So, why then is our Father so patient with “tolerant” people’s disrespect of His righteous commandments?

“Let both grow together until the harvest; and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn” – Mat. 13:30.

ARE YOU SAVED? Then you are more than just a secularist who only politically correctness, which only makes you “good” for a particular region on earth. In fact you are part of “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a pecular people; that you  should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light (I Pet. 2:9).”

  1. helenl Says:

    Can Being Politically Correct Save?
    No, only the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ can save.

    Can being politically correct give a Christian an opening to share the marvelous truth of the shed blood of Jesus and the salavtion it gave to humankind?
    Of course, it can. When we treat others with respect, they are more willing to listen to us and to consider our message.

    Can God save without the witness of Christians?
    Of course, He can – He’s all powerful – but He usually chooses to bring the gospel through people.

    So why not be politically correct?
    I just don’t know. All politically correct means is refraining from using prejudice and euphemisms in describing people. I can’t see how that’s bad.

    Am I saved? Yes, by the shedding of the blood of the Savior, at Calvary. And if you’re saved it’s by the very same means.

    Did the devil have anything to do with salvation?
    Nope.

    Assignment?
    Huh.

    Just who do you think you are?
    Please figure this out before you leave more comments on my blog that indicate you don’t understand what Thomas Merton meant.

    Do you even know who Merton is?
