A Word About Political Correctness

Posted in Encouraging Bible Verses, Encouraging Christian Resources, Encouraging Quotations at 10:21 pm by Administrator

In these godless, immoral and spiritually confusing times, it is exceedingly important that we Christians realize that we have NOT been called to be “politically correct.” Instead, we have been called to be biblically correct, morally correct and spiritually correct.

“Then Peter and the other disciples answered and said, ‘We ought to obey God rather than men’.”
Acts 5:29

Christians have no business whatsoever getting direction and validation from a popular culture that is anti-God and anti-Bible, no matter how glamorous or sensational it may be. In other words, we who are blood-bought, blood-washed and Holy Ghost-filled believers should NEVER get our moral and spiritual guidance from Oprah, Dr. Phil, Tyra Banks, Steve Harvey, Tyler Perry, Judge Judy, Modern Family, The View, Lady Gaga or Jerry Springer, to name a few.

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly.”
Psalm 1:1

We would do well to listen to the words of the great Scottish homiletician, Dr. P. T. Forsyth, who said, “If we do not have within us that which is above us, we will soon yield to that which is around us.”

My dear friend, C. E. McLain, has astutely said, “It is one thing to be tolerant and open-minded, but it is another thing to try to re-write Scripture.”

Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2

In this loose and “anything goes” society, God’s Word instructs you and corrects you (II Timothy 3:16). God has the final Word. Don’t get to the point where God can’t tell you anything!

Stand on the principles, values and standards that are in line with God’s Word and God’s Will.

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Mark 8:36
