Throughout the course of the last week I have heard some say speaking out about what’s going on is not worth creating division between believers. I respectfully disagree. Allow me to explain.
This nation has fallen victim to political correctness. Satan has used it as a weapon to sow compromise where there should be confrontation. We have sacrificed biblical morality and have held up the idol of acceptance in its place - all in the name of peace and loving our neighbor.
Satan wants everything God has. He is a copycat, and this thick and heavy manual of acceptance has become his bible. He’s been passing it out on the street corner for decades. Even centuries. People are picking it up and reading it. They are believing it. They are even being empowered by it and seeking entitlement through it, and any stand for biblical morality is now met by an angry mob. Those people fighting for truth are shamed and ostracized. Shadow banned and cancel cultured.
If standing up for biblical truths creates division between believers, then so be it, because that could be a life-saving signal to check which manual we have been reading from - God’s or Satan’s. I said it this morning: don’t stop speaking truth and don’t stop receiving it. But if you speak truth, pray about it first, then speak what God approves in love. And if you are given truth, receive it, pray about it, and let God show you what is truth. But once He shows you, be brave and humble enough to do something about it.
In the past few days I have had to receive some truth and make some adjustments of my own. Adjustments I genuinely feel grateful for because they make me a better version of myself. If we continue to stand idly by and say nothing in order to keep peace with other believers, then one of us may be doing the other a grave injustice.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t ever want to be robbed of truth. It is the essential ingredient to every choice we make.
“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”Joshua 24:15
