Here in the US and to a great extent worldwide, we are consumed by “political correctness.” Not only are we surrounded by the forces of being PC, we find ourselves feeling guilty when we say or do something that is not PC.
There is great danger there at all levels, from the international political level to the very personal. In our efforts to not be offensive we face the danger of turning from Truth.
We are at war with evil, with the forces of satan. satan rules this broken world. And when we give in to the world regarding our faith in order to be PC, we leave the door wide open to satan to overcome the Holy Spirit in our lives. We, Christians, must stand firm in our beliefs and faith, we must stand firm for TRUTH.
I am not saying we should be insensitive or unkind. Taking that course will also lead us to being un-Christian.
I was recently listening to Pat Robertson on CBN. While he was being critical of being PC to the detriment of our faith and TRUTH, he was also being very unrealistic. Specifically, he was talking about the need of Muslims to rewrite the Koran to meet the conditions of the modern world by eliminating references to “jihad.” This can no more happen that we Christians could rewrite the Bible to fit a new world.
This is not just a call to faith, but a call to Christian action. We can not sacrifice our faith, the TRUTH of the Living Word to being politically correct. We must deal with the reality of our world in Light of God’s Word.
Alive in The Word
