It struck me the other day that all the battles concerning Political Correctness are aimed at promoting and protecting perversion. They have made up their small minds that promoting a moral America is not worth their time but seeing to it that sexual perversion is forced on the silent majority.

The Bible is still the most popular book on sale in America and represents a huge majority of American citizens. With this majority to fight, the liberals chose a strategy to shame us into shutting our mouths by a campaign of name calling and labeling. Have you noticed that we don’t call them moralophobics or godophobics? That sounds so foolish and so do homophobic, bigoted, haters etc. etc. I for one chose a long time ago to NOT try to be politically correct but to be biblically correct. They can rant and rave and call names until they are blue in the face and it is like water off a duck’s back to me. I know that I am doing what is right and pleasing to God and that is all that matters.

  

Bill Clinton was the champion of the immoral folks in America, especially the Hollywood crowd, and a disgrace and disgusting to those who love what is right. The Bible calls homosexuality an abomination in the eyes of God. Liberal politicians and others have decided that perversion is what is right and that God is wrong. You know that the Bible says that this will happen in the last days. Guess what, it is happening NOW! I have a few quotes to demonstrate this.

  

“He who speaks truth tells what is right, but a false witness deceit.”  Proverbs 12:17

  

“A righteous man hates falsehood, but a wicked man acts disgustingly and shamefully.”  Proverbs 13:5

  

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.”  Proverbs 14:34

  

“The way of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, but He loves one who pursues righteousness.”  Proverbs 15:9

  

“He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, both of them alike are an abomination to the LORD. Why is there a price in the hand of a fool to buy wisdom, when he has no sense?”  Proverbs 17:15-16

  

Their strategy has worked very well and millions of godly people have shut up and just mumble to themselves and their friends about how bad things are. If you would just decide that no one is going to shut you up and that your most powerful tool is your vote then the liberals would sit up and take notice.

  So, are we going to speak up and vote out of office those who are slowly destroying this great nation? I for one am sick of the sewer of immorality flowing into our homes via the television. I turned mine off about six years ago and seek my information from sites like Townhall.com and WorldNetDaily.com

Christians in particular have often been dumbed down even by their own pastors. Preaching milk toast sermons is never going to make Christians strong. We need more preachers like Jonathan Edwards and his sermon, “Sinners in the hand of an angry God,” and “Payday Someday” by R. G Lee, and Charles Finney with his pulpit aflame with righteousness and hundreds like them. They saw righteousness once again aflame in America in different generations. Don’t we want that too? We are taught to “Just love them and let them have their own way. We wouldn’t want to offend anyone, you know.” It would do us all good to read about the lives of the prophets of the Old Testament and how Jesus, Paul and others dealt with opposition. Paul said these words,

 

Acts 13:8 But Elymas the magician (for so his name is translated) was opposing them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.

  

Acts 13:9 But Saul, who was also known as Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, fixed his gaze on him,

  

Acts 13:10 and said, “You who are full of all deceit and fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to make crooked the straight ways of the Lord?”

  

This one is not exactly “seeker friendly” is it?

  

Jesus called them white washed tombs and told them that they were the sons of the Devil. Peter did not mince words in confronting those who opposed God and righteousness. There is plenty of room for love but confrontation is what is essentially needed NOW!

  

Here is the biblical mandate for preaching. “… preach the Word, be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance with their own desires and will turn away their ears from the TRUTH and will turn aside to myths.” 2 Timothy 4:2-4

  I believe that Amos 8:11-12 is happening now in America.

“Behold, days are coming,” declares the Lord GOD, “When I send a famine on the land, not a famine for bread or thirst for water, but rather for hearing the words of the LORD. People will stagger from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east; they will go to and fro to seek the Word of the LORD, but they will not find it.”

  

There are still faithful preachers but far too few of them. If you have such a pastor, love him, take good care of him and encourage him to stay aflame for God. Today’s pastors might need to stop attending so many conferences and just get alone with God to find out what HE wants them to preach and do. Reading the preachers of the 17th and 18th centuries is also a good idea.

  

Our founding fathers would be ashamed of us if they were alive today. Let’s get some guts and backbone going and soon. Let’s let the lion out of his cage and let him roar!
