Political Correctness Exposed
Sunset in Aroostook Maine
is PC guilty of plagiarising the Word of God?
We live in the world infected by political correctness or PC. Political correctness is a fact of life and the theology of the highly educated unsaved and sadly many who say they are saved. A fact that is particularly the case in the United States is to bow a knee before PC. What once was considered simple courteousness and common sense now become encapsulated in PC. Can we expect to get courteousness and common sense from people who possess neither? We live in a PC world that has little to do with the truth. Hitler once said quoting Goebbels, "If you tell a lie loud enough, long enough, and often enough it becomes true." (nndb.com) Undeniably true of political correctness.
Political correctness is merely carefully packaged, presented and attempts to replace the Word of God. If every Christian indeed walked as Jesus walked, the world would have no need of political correctness. Those that wrote the book of political correctness have placed themselves above God. Many were and are currently an atheist. They are not evil people but deceived by the god of this age. Proverbs 16.18 says, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.”
Any nation, including the United States, which places itself above God must repent or face the fall. It is the very same sin that the archangel Satan committed. Edward Younkins says, “Political correctness involves the translation of Marxism from economic terms into cultural terms.” (Younkins “PC”) Ed Younkins is Professor of Accountancy at Wheeling Jesuit University. The idea of political correctness is to change society. Political correctness well integrated into the media, internet, government, universities, and society overall.
Let me make myself clear. I am not proposing bullying, talking down to either women or men, insulting family, and friends or any other verbal or physical assault. Christian principles authentically applied prevents this type of behavior without godless political correctness. Christians by nature have a new heart and changed mind that treats people with respect and kindness. Christianity, properly applied, produces a man or woman of character and discipline to do the right thing.
Multiculturalism is well established under political correctness trying to nudge out Judeo-Christian society. Multiculturalism, carefully examined, is the new communism. Ever Jew and Christian needs to shove back or face the consequences. I try my best to deliver the truth in love for those that are seeking the truth. In some respects, political correctness plagiarized the Word of God. We are to love those who are in sin but try to bring them out of the darkness and death into the light. After all, someone did the same for you, and I.
One of the goals of political correctness is to rewrite history in light of their current rules and philosophies to name certain groups as victims and to name those supposedly mistreating them as the demons or aggressors. We have all had these thoughts without the help of political correctness. For example, we would all agree that the Indians of America were mistreated by both the government and many other individuals. It is also true that some of the Indians of America were just as guilty of despicable acts of aggression as well. But is it right to place the immoral and maliciousness of men from the past for atonement on me as an individual or the Indian today solely based on race?
In radical feminism, the leaders say that in past times some men had all the power and chose to oppress and mistreat women. Here too is it right for me to atone for the past injustices by men who I would not even consider as an acquaintance today? Is this something I should feel an obligation to repay based on my ethnicity alone? Another goal of multiculturalism is to change your primary language. Your main way of speaking has to change. Dr. Younkins says, “This means that language should:
(1) not favor one group over another;
(2) not infringe on any group’s right to sovereignty;
(3) not interfere with the peaceful relationship of any minority group with those from other groups;
(4) not hinder society (i.e., the state) in its attempts to protect cultural groups (i.e., social, economic, and ethnic minorities) whose views are declared to be equally valid and who have the “right” to equal opportunity, integrity, and point of view; and
(5) not promote stereotypes of any kind.” One must carefully memorize these rules if speaking in the public forum includes work, education, or other forms of public speaking.
The morally superior, sympathetic, and evidently empathetic elite of our society has decided how your should speak and act without the Word of God of which they universally abhorred. Political correctness is in sync with the godless Humanist Manifesto. Politically correctness has their “linguistic smile buttons” which tries its best to create a feel-good atmosphere, but in reality, it does nothing to change humanity’s hearts and minds. Was it not James, who said, “You adulteresses [disloyal sinners—flirting with the world and breaking your vow to God]! Do you not know that being the world’s friend [that is, loving the things of the world] is being God’s enemy? So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” (Amp, James 4.4-6)
Our world is an increasingly pagan society never before seen with examples of pagan decisions made by America’s U.S. Supreme Court on display for all to see. Same-sex marriage is only the tip of the iceberg of the godless legislation by adjudication. Taking God out of the public forum as if we are ashamed of Him along with school prayer, abortion on demand used as a birth control that has sacrificed nearly 57 million babies with a separate DNA from their mother, and other decisions. I do not propose making Christianity as the state religion. But can anyone deny that many Godly men formed this nation fleeing persecution from a state run religion in England?
Political correctness has gone too far. If one casually says the wrong thing in this environment, you could be fined, fired, or face prosecution. There is a similarity in George Orwell’s 1984 and the PC environment today. Orwell envisioned a society where speech would become significantly restricted. In his society, they created what Orwell called “newspeak” that bears a striking resemblance to political correctness. Anthony Burness says Orwell’s “newspeak” is, “a reduced language created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit free thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace, etc. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as ‘thoughtcrime.” (Burgess p. 8)
While what you say may not be a crime where one is hauled off to prison yet, but I believe we are heading down that slippery slope. It is one-sided as well. While the rules that apply to one group does not apply to another. Bill Maher Sarah Silverman and Larry David are examples of biased atheistic theology that insults both Christians and Jews. The mainstream media of America bombards us with messages of what we should think, say, believe and do. Appropriate speech predetermined on how you should speak and think by PC. I should know. I worked fourteen years in a governmental office where the right language required on a daily basis where one had to toe the line.
I believe we can state that PC in the form practiced in America and Europe is not from God. However, PC did borrow many of the principles found in the Word of God. While God is loving and kind, political correctness is not. If one violates the evolving rules and many judges of political correctness, the results may be very harsh and severe. A Christian is advised to follow the principles in the eternal Word of God and they will not only please God but get along in most situations in the workplace and public situations.
Please note: I invite your comments and suggestions. Over the last two years, I have had comments from Christians, existentialists, logical positives, Hindus, Buddhists, liberal Humanists, liberal Protestants and Roman Catholics, Reformed Jews, agnostics, and atheist. I love them all. I believe they are sincere in their beliefs. Some of the above are sincerely wrong.
Paul told the Colossians, "See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following the truth—the teachings of Christ." (Colossians 2.8) That is a powerful verse and seldom followed.
There is an ongoing war in America not against ISIS, the Humanist Manifesto, or any other enemy of the state. What is this war being fought over? It is a 10,000-year war for the souls of men to join not a religious system, but to become lovers of God and grow into sons and daughters of a King, the Lord Jesus Christ. If any philosophy has any untruth, it is a lie. Wake up America. We are inviting the wrath of God because of an abandonment of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
We need to thank a living God for holding off His judgment in America. God is loving, patient and kind, but his patience will not last forever. America is on the verge of either repenting at a national level or face the consequences of turning its back on God.
I hope you learn by reading the short articles. I hope they inspire you to study the Word of God. Within lies salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ, the only way to God. (John 14.6) Please contact me at email@example.com and let me know what subjects you would like for me to write.
There are so much junk and untruth out there that is not Biblical that masquerades as Truth. One must not be deceived. Those who are trying to prove that Jesus was not a real man for example. Jesus was black; He was a Galilean, do we care what color He was? Adam was not the first man as an example of another untruth. The Bible is just a book written by men is another. The untruth goes on and on and is as old as Satan deceiving Eve in the Garden of Eden. If it is not Biblical, it is a lie no matter how convincing the information looks. The author of all lies is Satan. Stick with the Word of God and you will never go wrong.
