Do you ever doubt your own judgement? Well, I have wondered about allowing that last post. It was, most certainly, meant as a concise articulation of a point of view. But did it alienate any friends and readers? I’m torn between removing it and taking a stand upon it.
These days so many people remain silent out of fear of ‘offending’ others. We want to be “politically correct”, but there lies the problem – there is hardly anything associated with politics that is correct anymore. It is corrupt, and usually, being politically correct directly contradicts Biblical Truth. Then there is the subject of tolerance. Tolerance should be a good thing, but lately I’ve seen it as just another way to avoid the truth, especially Biblical Truth. And, to compromise can be a very good thing, but compromising oneself only leads to trouble.
So I stand with Chaff (Well done, Chaff) against political greed, against the hunger for political power, against hate – FOR our republic, and for sensible, unselfish, governmental spending, taxation, and economic policies. The Bible teaches that debt is a very bad thing, to be strictly avoided. However, our whole economy is based on debt. Not surprising is it? And not surprising that we’re in trouble!
To be artificially politically correct, or to tolerate concepts and ideas obviously outside of Christian values seems just a way to compromise with “the world”, which Jesus never did, nor did the apostles, nor did the early believers. Thank God!
To stand upon the unshakeable Rock of Christ is the answer to our worldly troubles. Come join me there! Anyone?
