Political Correctness in America – The Streamlining of Evil by Rev Michael Bresciani, April 12, 2013
The primary thrust of political correctness is the elimination of offensive or contrary speech that may offend, or point out particular behaviors, casting them in an unfavorable light. It is like the old communistic effort of the KGB to silence all speech against the state, but in today’s PC it is a voluntary program that you are not forced to obey – but woe to you if you don’t!
It is the acceptable form of collective dishonesty that seems to protect everyone, while it suggests that doing, seeing or promoting sin or bad behavior is not wrong - only talking about it is wrong.
Political correctness is a societal perversion parading as an effort toward civility and world peace. In fact it is a bulldozer sent to level all resistance by labeling free speech and honesty as evil. It is one of the greatest evils of our time masquerading as a knight in shining armour.
PC is the little white fences and chutes that the sheep travel through, deliberately driven in fear by the calls and pokes of the herders who are leading them directly to the place of slaughter.
It is the literal and virtual fulfillment of a moral decay that was spoken of many years ago by the great prophet Isaiah.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isa 5: 20)
PC is so perfectly perverted that it actually passes itself off as philanthropic love in action. In actuality it has segregated entire segments of society – moralists, the church and anyone with half a brain left to them, and has delivered them to the PC lords to be ostracized, criticized and generally disdained.
The Decline of Definitions always precedes the Decline of Morality
The Bible breaks the definition of love into three major categories. One is physical ‘eros’ the next is brotherly love ‘philia,’ and the last is ‘agape,’ which is unconditional love.
The common definition of love used in today’s world is eros or physical love. It is feely, touchy and sloppy love, but it is at the bottom of the list of definitions.
Christ not only provided us with the greatest definition of all time but he capped it with an actual demonstration of that love in his death on the cross for sinners.
Jesus said, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (Jn 15: 13)
We have deluded ourselves into thing that it is not laying down our lives for mankind but it merely lying down with mankind that is the greatest love.
We have decided that kindergarteners must be taught about sex, high-schoolers must be given free condoms and college students should be able to drink themselves into oblivion while having sex with anyone or anything that moves. And the government should pave the way to do this, via funding for contraceptives and abortifacients.
Prophecy and Political Correctness are Natural Enemies
With physical love (eros) being the most widely accepted form of love in today’s society how can things go wrong? Sexual freedoms have capitulated to the top of the list on everyone’s agenda. Lying around with any gender at any time night or day is the new freedom for this generation.
In truth, the only thing that is being freed up is human hormones in a world where hatred is rampant, murder and mayhem are in the streets and nations are rising against nation with threats of terrorism and nuclear missiles.
Have we chosen the wrong definition? Has the PC that allows for unbridled sexual pursuits deceived us?
Was Christ’s prophecy about the conditions of mankind in the last days incorrect or an extravagant exaggeration?
While describing the warfare and unrest that would mark the last day’s generation Jesus said:
“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” (Mt 24: 12)
In this generation of unbridled sexual immorality this prophecy, no doubt, has nothing to do with eros.
Can no one see that it is the absence of the other kinds of love that is driving this world toward Armageddon?
PC says if you do see it – be sure not to say it!
Political Correctness has its own Priests and Prophets
The halls of academia, the liberal progressive media, Hollywood and the general consensus drawn from those who repeat today’s ‘common wisdom of the day’ are the priests and prophets of PC.
They are priests from the temple of fleshly lusts and prophets of self-indulgence. They are honored and referred to at every turn in the modern drive to destruction.
When Bill O’Reilly made his plea to America to come up with an argument against gay marriage that was not derived from the Bible and ordinary ‘Bible thumping’ we can only surmise that he was referring to some academic, psychologist, politician or public figure whose own wisdom would put the matter to rest once and for all.
A barrage of answers came from writers and others, including this writer, but as yet Mr. O’Reilly has not acknowledged them and has continued to express his own PC version of the need for ‘equality’ to rise above the command of biblical morality, natural law and common sense.
One evangelist, Bill Keller, offered $10,000 to O’Reilly’s favorite charity if he would openly debate the matter with Keller.
Those who fully recognize the infallibility of the Word of God should not offer him a nickel to dispute any part of this hyper-nonsense. Putting PC against the commands of a Holy God is like asking dogs in heat to explain the meaning of the Greek word ‘agape.’
Three Stages of PC – Now Entering Stage Two – What’s Next?
Stage one, as mentioned, is the voluntary collective acceptance of regulated speech. The first stage is an attempt to filter out responsibility for our worst behaviors by just being silent about them.
We must not use words, like perversion or sin, no visuals like pictures of aborted babies in pools of blood. The voluntary absence of these words must then be followed by actively condemning those who dare to cross the unseen PC line.
Stage two, is to bring the law to bear and make all non PC approved speech punishable by fines and imprisonment. Canada and some European countries have already started down that road and it is clear that America is entertaining the idea.
Stage three, is made clear by asking a single question about a bible prophecy spoken by Christ, to John, who gave us the book of Revelation while exiled to the isle of Patmos.
The prophecy is this: “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God…” (Rev 20: 4a)
The question is this: What will these people die for, why will they be violently removed from the last day’s scene?
The answer is simple: This is the third stage of the great scourge we now call PC. It is where those who will not concede to the filth of man’s last day’s romance with every whim of the flesh, including same sex marriage, will be forcibly taken out of the picture - completely.
It is why all the so called ‘great religions’ may be tolerated with the exception of one - true biblical Christianity.
The Supreme Court Vs. The Supreme Judge – A Non-PC Prophecy You Can Count On
America has lots of pros and cons about her past and her future. Setting the details aside for clarities sake we will put her best attributes together to create a reasonable chronology or timeline by which to gauge our future. In general there are four distinct stages. We are better than midway through them all and we are not doing well.
It must be noted that these things can be altered by us if we choose to do so, however, if the trends are any indication, at this moment it seems we are not moving to change course.
1. The fall into immorality has many facets, the sexual revolution, the pill, godless academia, but the most evil aspect of modern America’s fall is clearly our 40 year-long slaughter of our own unborn. We have failed this test and as yet we have implemented no permanent remedy.
2. The general acceptance of homosexuality and other perversions has marked the second stage on our journey to the land of full reprobation. (Ro 1: 26-28)
3. Stage three is looming and seemingly rests in the hands of the same governing body that gave us Roe V. Wade and the sixty million aborted human beings that followed. Same sex marriage may be decided by the Supreme Court, but it will be judged by the Supreme Judge.
How will it be judged? It will no doubt lead us closer to the full and complete demise of our power as a nation. This is a biblically based, forgone conclusion and you needn’t ask Bill O’Reilly if it is a sufficient argument.
4. Stage four is how we respond to Israel. Put simply, if we give up active support and defense, if needed, for Israel, we will have absolutely nothing left to present to God. Our fall will be complete and the concomitant results will follow.
To the O’Reillys’ of this world, no argument will ever do, but let’s not pretend that one has never been made. It is the life, words and sacrificial death of Jesus Christ for the sins of this world and his subsequent resurrection from the dead. This is the greatest argument of all time. Yet, for some, even this, - is not enough.
“And he said unto him, if they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.” (Lk 16: 31)
In the last days the prophet Daniel said that some people will be assuaged by mere flatteries to abandon the faith along with biblical morality. (Da 11: 32) If some of the Christians can do exploits as Daniel indicates, it follows that the rank and file Christians should at the very least – hold the line. If the bible is clear on issues like homosexuality, same sex marriage et al, then speak up, gently, lovingly, but affirmatively. But speak up!
It is not a prophecy we must heed in these last days, but a personal warning given to all believers by the Lord concerning his words and the teachings of his prophets and apostles – to wit:
“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” (Mt 8: 38)
As a final word of advice to the Body of Christ (the Church) we should be mindful that the admonition to be brave in the face of hostility to the gospel and all of biblical doctrine was made abundantly clear when the Apostle Paul said “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.” (1Cor 16: 13)
The Greek word for Quit in this passage is andrizo – it means ‘to make a man of’ or to ‘play the man.’ As we approach the difficult days close to the great tribulation period the call to be brave has never been more important.
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the trumpet call obey;
Forth to the mighty conflict, in this His glorious day
Ye that are brave now serve Him against unnumbered foes;
Let courage rise with danger, and strength to strength oppose
Stand up, stand up for Jesus, the strife will not be long;
This day the noise of battle, the next the victor’s song
To those who vanquish evil a crown of life shall be;
They with the King of Glory shall reign eternally
Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus Geo. Duffield Jr. 1858
