I am frustrated as I write this diatribe. I was just part of a conference call in which three men, most likely business men and leaders in their city, were wondering if we were “too political” to be part of a kiss-but-don’t-tell event they are sponsoring in a few months. The ‘kiss-but-don’t-tell’ is my stamp on them for their lack of strength when it comes to standing for the things of the Lord. Really?
In actuality, the three men said, “We agree with you completely. We thank you for the stand you are taking.” Then they tucked their tails between their legs and said, “We’ll take this back to our board.” Not one of them had the courage to stand up and say “Yes! We agree.” They could only whisper it.
Well, Pilgrim. What about it. If you agree with us, why are you afraid of us? If you agree with us, why are you afraid truth will hamper the success of your event? Out of courtesy, and because it wouldn’t be politically correct, I will not say who the men were or what the event is; but, I will say, I’m very disappointed.
Being politically correct is a plague that has hit this country like the freezing ice and snow has hit the southeast and eastern seaboard of America this winter. It is freezing. It is debilitating. Nothing – absolutely nothing – gets accomplished because we are so afraid of hurting someone and being thought of badly! Well wahoo! Get over yourself. If we cannot stand up for truth; if we cannot stand up for right; if we cannot stand up for righteousness, then what on earth will we stand up for?
I’ve seen this plague take over America and I’ve seen it wash across the globe until everyone is afraid of their own shadow. How sick. How very sick. When the jack booted soldiers show up at your door, will you still be afraid to take a stand? Wouldn’t be politically correct, would it. Just surrender and do what they tell you to – it’s easier that way. No waves. No trouble. No guts. Just surrender.
As for me and my household, we will stand with the Lord!
