What PC Really Means

In my previous post, I linked to a site that referenced a very sobering article at WorldNetDaily. If you missed it, you can read it here.

Who would have thought that in this country it would be politically correct to persecute Christians? In the name of tolerance, we have exercised our right to remain silent. Shall we now face prosecution should we choose to give up that right?

It was to be expected. Jesus said so Himself.

John 15:19-21 ~ If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: 'No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me.

We have been duly warned. In fact, it's only going to get worse.

2 Timothy 3:12-13 ~ In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

We must not be afraid to stand for Truth.

Psalm 27:1 ~ The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?


It's one thing to say that I am willing to face persecution, prosecution, or even death to defend my faith, but am I prepared to do so?

Are you?

Your last sentence there nailed it. We've lived in this country for generations being able to get by with merely talking about how we'd face persecution.

It may well be that we'll be asked to put our money where our mouth is, so to speak. I think it's inevitable, but I'd like to see it delayed as long as possible.

Excellent, excellent, excellent post.

I think we are more prepared to die for Him than to speak up for Him. People are so afraid of being embarrassed or being seen as too religious.
Thanks for putting it all together-great Scripture references.

I had the "don't fear the one who can kill your body" discussion with my oldest today. We live in compelling times, to be sure.

Very sad, scary, maddening, sad.

Compelling post Brenda. It is time to go to the Word....it is time to strengthen our resolve...it is time--God's time--and I don't think he's too worried about that PC thing.

Hello Brenda,
I wanted to come by and wish you a wonderful Valentines Day. I hope it is a special one for you. You are loved!

On this Valentine's Day, this is a good reminder.

I love Jesus...if that means changing my legal name to express my faith to something like "Jesus is Lord", then so be it. Can you imagine every time someone asked me my name, they would hear..."Jesus is Lord".

I'm not joking about this either.
