Franklin Graham: 'Political Correctness Gone Amok'
I receive newsletters from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association from time to time because Brenda and I spent a week at The Cove in Asheville, NC for a seminar a few years ago.
I usually just skim over them without really reading them but, the one I got this week caught my eye. It seems Franklin Graham has been caught up again and again in this politically correct country we live in for the sake of our Lord Jesus.
You can almost feel his hurt or maybe a little anger in his words to the Christian reader. Here is some of that newsletter.
by Franklin Graham...One of the most sinister and menacing threats to our society today lurks under the lethal guise of two small initials—PC. I’m talking about political correctness—the maddening and prevailing public sentiment of offending no one (except Christians). It has infected our schools, government, universities, and the marketplace, leaving no room for moral absolutes or the authoritative truth of Scripture.
Instead, political correctness demands tolerance of everything as it panders to the godless values of pluralism, marginalizing and even persecuting men and women of faith.
I am not politically correct—never have been and never will be. Was the Apostle Paul politically correct? He spent more time in prison than anywhere else, but he said, Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;
Mr. Graham said 'Political Correctness Gone Amok' and added "Wishing to offend no one, our nation’s leaders now stand for absolutely nothing".....Amok means: to wildly; without self-control.
It's a scary thought what Mr. Graham is saying but, it seems to be very true. Our country stands for nothing anymore. What really breaks my heart is that to our children and grandchildren a politically correct society will be a way of life!
God have mercy on those who persecute, deny, blast our Lord Jesus and put some dead god's word in the mind of children.
Why do most deny Jesus? Why do some look for other gods? I have said many times when you put the truth in the face of a heathen , they want to remove it at all cost.
Reminds me of when John the Baptist was in prison and sent two of his disciples to check to see if it really was Jesus that he had heard about. Our Lord reaffirmed John by some encouraging words and we can also be blessed by these words.
Bible says in Matthew 11:2 Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, 3 And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? 4 Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: 5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
Jesus assured John that He was in fact the Messiah that had came but, more than that, Jesus was reciting Isaiah 35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. 5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
In the midst of the storm of judgment on a politically correct world God’s people can rejoice because they will know that He will come and save them. The saved has the added hope and joy of never experiencing the Great Tribulation Period. Jesus shows us His credentials through the Holy Spirit that lives in His own and reveals His promises to us.
