If you take enough of it you won’t be able to say anything. The Political Correct agenda is out to anesthetise the world from morality and conviction…maybe not intentionally but very effectively.
Political Correctness proposes a philosophy and culture in which the citizens are expected to believe everything and nothing. It is required of everyone to affirmed everyone else in their status quo. The agenda demands that everyone’s belief system and world view must affirm everyone’s belief system or world view. What happens when status-quo is destructive, ineffective, or apathetic?
It is creating an atmosphere where everyone wants to be identified by their individual attributes. But only those attributes that they want to be noticed; it is a Selective Identification Crisis. We are not allowed to say anything that can be perceived as negative by the person, even if it is correct. We want others to tell us how awesome we are but don’t want our failures to be pointed out to us.
It is much like a scantly-dressed women who becomes upset that creepy guys ogle them and make suggestive comments, but is excited when an attractive and desirable man makes the same ogling stares and the same suggestive comments. It is called being “double-minded” or having a double-standard. Your attire is meant to create an eye-catching scene but it is impossible to dictate that only certain people will look at you the way you are hoping them to.
It is like a person who is in an adulterous relationship but gets upset when they are labeled a “Home Wrecker” —— an (adulterer). They are also confused when they are cheated on by their partner in adulterous crime in the same manner. We think that we will be exempt from the consequence of their actions or the actions of others. This constipated thinking is a result that humans are inherently Good, innocent, and sympathetic. [See Line of Demarcation]
There is a entitlement issue that says, ‘I can do whatever I want but I shouldn’t be held responsible for the consequence.’ Unfortunately, there is a Law of Gravity; if you do [X] then [Y] will happen. You can not live a life with no moral boundaries and think that you are going to have healthy perspective on the world.
Every aspect of our world is governed by Laws; Food, Sleep, Exercise, Love, Sex, Work, Playing, Money, Family, Genetics, etc. There is nothing random in life, everything is governed by universal laws. For example, if you refuse to eat a healthy diet over the course of the early and middle decades of your life then when you are in the golden hours of your life, you will probably spend a good deal of that time on medication and in doctors offices trying to ward off an untimely death. We reap what we sow, in every aspect of life. No one is exempt from the consequence of their actions.
The only variable in life is the choices we get to make; every choice you make is a cause and effect mechanism.
The coming generations will not only be satisfied with double-mindedness, they will demand it. Any person or persons who disagrees with this inane and watered-down universal philosophy will be deemed cancerous and dangerous. There will be pass laws that prohibit certain religions to hold and express moral convictions, and disallow any warnings of eternal judgment. Maybe except for Islam or atheism. And yes, atheism is a religion.
I refuse to be numbed by this Novocaine laced PC smoothie. Whether intentional or not I will not be lulled to sleep by the gently wooing of Political Correctness. I will continue to hold the world accountable according to the 10 commandments. The same commandments that Christ and the Apostles were held to; the same commandments that I hold my life to. The same commandments that have shaped every successful societies for the last 4 or 5 millenniums.
Judging life and actions by a moral or ethical code is not wrong, in fact we do it thousands of times a day. Yet, we don’t think about the small judgments we make about people based on the emotional leakage or outburst, their misuse of the English language, etc, as real judgments. We like to think of those as mere observations. We often judge others by a standard (socially or colloquially) that we violate ourselves.
These mere observations lead us to make make decisions about how we will interact with these people or if we agree with their actions/opinions. We judge them based on what we feel are the correct social norms, and we weigh them against our own actions/opinions and ideals. The only difference is that we are okay judging someone by what we feel is fair and just in our current perspective but if the perspective is one that we don’t agree with then we think that the judgment is invalid and despicable. We morally/ethically judge people who make moral/ethic judgments against us that we don’t agree with by a set of standards that we think is more correct and fair.
The problem is that if we don’t have a central code or base from which to draw the fairness of the judgments are going to vary greatly from one person’s perspective to another. What if there was a simple code that was not a influenced by wealthy, lineage, or charm, would that make it easier? If no one was exempt from standing next to the standard and seeing how they measure up simply because they had a little money or political pull, would that be fair?
There is just that, it is called the 10 commandments.
What about the statement, ” judge not lest you be judged?” Let’s look at the misunderstood quote.
Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
Mat 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
Mat 7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Mat 7:4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
Mat 7:5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.
It says don’t be hypocritical. Don’t call someone out on being a liar if you are engaging in lies and dishonesty yourself. But if you are a reformed liar, and now you hold to the code of honesty you can call someone out for lying. Furthermore, it is not incorrect for me say that lying is wrong and a life of impenitent lying of will lead to an eternity in Hell. Revelation 21:8 says that all Liars will have their part in the Lake of Fire. So, if I am still lying both the person I am judging about lying and myself are violators of the Law of God and are in danger of Hell;two wrongs don’t make a right.
What Jesus is saying here is that if you don’t have a clear perspective your judgments are going to be skewed and incorrect, he is not saying that we aren’t to judge the actions of others. Paul tells us in Philippians 3:15-19 to “mark” those that walk with you. Know what type of people that they are; are they Christians or are they out to destroy Christ:
Php 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
Php 3:16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
Php 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
Php 3:18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
Php 3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
Again in Matthew Chapter 7, Jesus tells us to judge the actions and lifestyles of those around us:
Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Jesus was not politically correct. Look at verse 21: “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” Not everyone will go to Heaven. He is not affirming everyone’s worldview, lifestyle, belief systems, etc. He makes a distinction between a good tree and a bad tree.
We are all bad trees producing bad fruit, and there’s nothing we can do can change our status. The good that we produce is still considered bad. The only True good can come from Him. We can take on His Spirit, His Nature, His Will and do good through that, but our own spirit is bad; corrupted from birth. Then we are changed into a new tree, with a new root system and we can then bear good fruit. If you do not have this transformation you will be hewn down and cast in to the fire.
People souls hang in the balance, I am not going to let their pride get in the way of eternal consequences. I should let someone’s house burn down and leave them inside because I am afraid that if I entered it to save them I could offend them. Maybe they like the intense heat or the lapping of the flames? I could walk on by and ignore them but I would be the greatest hypocrite to with hold such information.
I had to set through secular education that teach Marco-evolution. They are not afraid to offend me. It is deemed science, and therefore is above reproach. I ask this question, “Can you believe science, if you are not the one doing the experiment?” And the answer is that you have too. Do you think that scientist can be completely trusted to only report that data that they find? That seems unlikely, considering that fame, Nobel prizes, and accolades are all on the line, not to mentioned grant money and scholarships. (The Story linked here is no definitive but there are both pro and con stories linked to it, mainly toward the bottom and the comments sections.) Yet science and those that believe in science are bold in their affirmation of my idiocy to believe in what they call “fairy tales”.
Having said that, even though I believe (and the Bible makes clear) it is wrong, an act of sinning, to lie, steal, cheat, covet, envy, lust, “sleep-with” someone other than your spouse, disobey your parents, creating Religions and gods that you are more comfortable with, and hate God…I will say that you are free do those things if you want. You can do this as much as you want; as much as the civil law allows you to enact these deeds, but I will never say that you “right” in your actions. I cannot say that you can be a Christian or be “eligible” for Heaven if you reject Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life and you stay impenitent. It doesn’t matter if I am guilty of the same misdeeds, I cannot say that I am “right” in my actions. Just because someone says they are a Christian and the commit the same sin you do doesn’t negate Christianity or Christ, it simply negates that persons witness and maybe even their own salvation. I will say that we have the ability and freewill to do wrong deeds, but we can never be “right” doing the wrong things.
Here is a list of the 10 commandments in which to compare you past and present action and lifestyles to:
Exo 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Exo 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Exo 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Exo 20:9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
Exo 20:10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
Exo 20:11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Exo 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Exo 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.
Exo 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Exo 20:15 Thou shalt not steal.
Exo 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Exo 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s
The only way to Heaven is through Christianity. It is to Repent of our sins, and accept the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to remit those sins. Anything else is not Christianity and by virtue of the Bible non-Christians are not “eligible” for Heaven. Tying to be a good person will not get you into Heaven: charity, smiling, being kind, being gentle, being merciful, etc. These are good things but you are still guilty of sin. Everyone has broken at least one of the 10 Commandments, and one commandment offended is the same as offending them all. The action of sin must be paid and the only payment is the Death of Jesus Christ.
You don’t go to Hell because you don’t know Jesus Christ, you go to Hell because you have broken the Law and that is the consequence of an impenitent offender of the Law. Listen to Paul’s explain the fine or penalty for committing sin:
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
I will not affirm anyone’s (not even my own) sinful lifestyle as a wholesome lifestyle just to make someone feel better about themselves. Jesus came to save us from our sins, not in them.
