Z72-05/16/15 - We are living in a “Hyper Politically Correct” society. As Christians, for many of us this is exactly where our persecution will begin…if indeed we’re obedient to our commitment. Our Master was NOT politically correct at all. Neither when He drove the money changers from the temple, or when he told the crowd that they must “eat His flesh and drink His blood…” or when he told the church leaders, “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.” (Matthew 23:13)
We do not need to be rude, but by the same token we do need to learn to speak up and say what we believe—and believe in what we say! The world (our society in particular) is being lulled into numbness as they literally perish and slide into eternal darkness, and yet in the name of political correctness, we hold back on proclaiming the Answer! We have GOOD NEWS!
Most interestingly, Sally & I have found that most times when we just swallow the lump in our throat and say exactly what the Lord has placed on our heart – it is received, often through tear-filled eyes! When I was a kid, things were “groovy” then as I got older things were “cool” today, somehow to express the same appreciation, kids say things are “sic!” That’s all in a period of 30 or 40 years, and yet the Word of the Living God, and His timeless prescription for eternal Life has NEVER changed a bit—AND it’s still changing lives today! As I once heard on a broadcast set, “Just read the copy…the copy is good!”
If you’re born from above, then face it…this world is NOT YOUR HOME! You ARE different, but if you’ll be free in your New Life, you’ll find yourself more relevant in a dark, dark world, than you ever imagined!
We Love You in Christ,
Sally & Terry
