Politically Correct Or Biblically Correct?
Politically Correct Or Biblically Correct?
|Tolerance of other religious beliefs is a virtue.||Ephesians 5:11 “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
Psalms 119:104 “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.”
Galatians 1:8 “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.”. Tolerating different paths to hell is nothing to be proud of.
|No particular religion is better than any other. All are equally valid.||John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”. God does not tailor His salvation program to suit the whims of His creatures.
|All people are basically good.||Jeremiah 17:9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
Romans 3:10 “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” If all people were basically good, we would never have to teach children right from wrong.
|Homosexuality is just an alternative lifestyle. Anyone who does not think so is homophobic.||Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”. AIDS, VD, and suicide are nothing to be “gay” about.|
|Abortion is a woman’s right that no one else should interfere with.||Exodus 20:13 “Thou shalt not kill.”
Proverbs 28:13 “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” Other than in wars and in the execution of justice, nobody has a right to destroy human life, be it inside the womb or outside.
|Prostitution is a victimless crime.||Leviticus 19:29 “Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.” If prostitution were a victimless crime, no one would ever have to worry about getting a disease, or an unwanted pregnancy nor would people have to worry about being found out. In addition, prostitution is an insult to the intimacy of the marriage relationship.|
|Pornography and profanity is protected free speech.||Psalms 101:3 “I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.”
Proverbs 30:12 “There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.”
Matthew 12:37 “For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
James 3:8 “But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.”. Offending the eyes and ears of other people and of God with ungodly behavior has nothing to do with freedom of speech.
|The death penalty is inhumane.||Exodus 21:12 “He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death.” The death penalty is not about being humane to murderers. Its about being obedient to God’s command to provide justice for victims and punishment for criminals.|
|We have a right to protest against our government.||Romans 13:1 “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.” Christians are to change the world by prayer and proclamation of the Gospel. It is time to be more preoccupied with one’s neighbors and less concerned about people you will never have a chance to witness to.|
|Cloning and medical research of any kind is OK as long as it provides the greatest good to the greatest number.||Proverbs 16:25 “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” It is never OK to create and destroy embryos in an attempt to make somebody else’s life better.|
|Animals are just as important as people.||Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Animals are NOT created in the image of God. Ironically, many animal-rights activists are pro-abortion.|

Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
