POLITICALLY CORRECT, NO SPIRITUAL RESPECT

There is a new form of persecution that we must contend with in this age. It is called political correctness. A persecution not of the body, but of the emotion.
It is a false sense of tolerance; a tolerance because of restraining laws on the mouths of men, but not the minds of men.
A tolerance based on fear and not on love.
But this is the only thing that men without God’s rule in their hearts can do. Let us not condemn them therefore. For Our Lord allows this for a season, though it may hurt us for now.
But you will notice the occasional slip of the tongue, when what is actually believed bypasses the well-organised defense mechanisms of the mind. You’ll notice the violent responses when toes are stepped on – people getting sacked, verbally abused, being ostracized, physically attacked etc…
Is this a reflex reaction to the subjugation of the mind?
The world would be a very boring place if we all looked the same, had the same culture, the same colour, the same language, and may I add – the same religion! All religions are a system of worship, including atheism.
Our Lord will conquer all hearts, for He seeks the heart of worship – not the system of worship. All will have a living worship for the one true God, as Christ is received into each heart. And that, my dear friends, is very different from religion – including visible Christianity!
Father, that men would be free to think, free to speak, and free to love. A love that comes from within, not from pressurizing from without.
Evermore Lord, do this: so that we may be saved.
Stay blessed in Him,
