I have noticed over the last 25 years or so, The American cultural landscape has been inundated with laws and the people who write, enforce and subscribe to them admonishing us to “be careful not to offend your neighbor” or in other words be Politically Correct – PC for short. PC has done far more damage to the American Christian than other act of terror ever devised. Yes, you heard me correctly. I define PC as an act of terror - psychological terror. It has compromised our message, corrupted our culture and has turned our government into a continually dysfunctional entity. It is in this that the Church has allowed this silent enemy to creep into everything the Kingdom is supposed to influence – government, culture and religion.
My question for the Church is where do we draw the line? When do we as representatives of the Kingdom become Biblically right instead of Politically Correct? I know that the question will be asked, “How have we not been Biblically right?” Consider this:
- When your Pastor have said from the pulpit, “Homosexuality is not God’s best” and you agree with that statement.
- When political candidates have publically stated they support abortion on demand and same-sex marriage and you as a Christian still vote for them.
- When you use Romans 13:1-2 as a reason of not getting politically involved, at the same time ignoring verses 3-4 as proof why you should.
- When the world asks you “Why is your world view better than mine?” and you’re more worried about offending them than telling them the truth?
If you can answer “yes” to any of these, you have been influenced by political correctness. PC and Biblical Truth are not two sides of the same coin. Rather, they are on opposite ends of the spectrum. They are as close together as the East is to the West. It is time for the Church to wake up. To know, understand, and walk in Biblical truth. To proclaim this Truth to a nation that has in essence, put the PC gun to their head and is ready to squeeze the trigger.
Will we “negotiate” with this nation to put the gun down, or will we allow the hammer of that gun to fall?
