For the time is coming when people will not put up with sound doctrine—2 Timothy 4:3
It’s amazing how so many Christians are afraid to stand up when it comes to taking a public stand that is morally correct and grounded on biblical principles. They fear being labeled a hater and a racist—a bigoted or prejudiced person. They fear not being politically correct.
But did Jesus Christ ever allow himself to be so controlled? Never! He hated the abuse of God’s house so he drove out the money changers with a whip. He hated evil and sin, not simply because these were opposed to his truth but because they were, and still are, damaging to those whom God loves—us. But he always loved sinners, rubbed elbows with them, and was against anything that hurt them, kept them in bondage, or hindered their growth.
Jesus was not committed to being sensitive and respectful of the felt needs of people by being culturally, religiously or politically correct. No! Instead, he was completely committed to teach people the truth—that they may grow to know and love God and make him known. And he was strongly against anyone or anything that came in the way of this life-transforming truth.
If being politically correct means that we treat people of different backgrounds with respect and do not stereotype them based on their race or gender, then it is in fact, very biblical. But this is not the real intention of our modern, politically correct movement.
In truth, this movement is designed to intimidate people into using language that has been pre-approved. Political correctness tends to be focused on human sensitivity and self-esteem. When you exclusively focus on human sensitivity and self, you eliminate God from your life.
