Correctness with Biblical Correctness It will probably come as no surprise that there are a few people out there who wouldnt exactly describe me as politically correct My Websters Dictionary, which was first developed by one of our founding fathers in the early nineteenth centuryNoah Websterdefines being politically correct as agreeing with the idea that people should be careful to not use language or behave in a way that could offend a particular group of people Hey, if what comes out of my mouth sometimes offends the people who dont believe what is written in the Bible, Im guilty as charged But understand this Im not trying to hurt anyones feelings, and I dont dislike people simply because their opinions are different from mine I dont hate anyone In truth, I love everybody on this green earth I dont believe in stereotypes, and I do believe in respecting everyone, regardless of whether they agree with my beliefs or not All people, whether theyre white, black, yellow, red, or green, are of great worth in Gods eyes, and His desire for us all is that we share in His kingdom Jesus actually commanded us to love John 13 3435 says, A new command I give you Love one another As I have loved you, so you must love one another By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another I simply believe that what is written in the Scripture is the ultimate truth and that its the blueprint for my life Im certainly not the first person to believe it In the very first edition of The American Dictionary of the English Language, published in 1828, Webster wrote the following in the preface The moral principles and precepts contained in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws All the miseries and evils which men suffer from, vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible It doesnt get much clearer than that, folks Webster, who has been called the father of American scholarship and education and whose blue backed speller books educated five generations of our countrys children, spelled it out for us nearly two hundred years ago Webster believed evil occurred because men and women neglected the Bible and didnt follow Gods Word Were still using Websters dictionary today, so I guess he knew what he was doing I imagine Mr Webster is rolling in his grave now that words like sexting, twerking, and selfie are officially part of the English language Hey, only in America, Jack Somewhere along the way, political correctness trumped biblical correctness in America, and in my opinion its the cause of many of our countrys problems today Political correctness tries to dictate what is right and wrong, instead of our country having a moral system of righteous laws Our society is overly sensitive, and we seem to be fixated on building up peoples self esteem and confidence Hey, everybody needs constructive criticism once in a while The way things are going, its okay to have an opinion in America, as long as you dont offend anyone and dont quote the Bible Many people today are eager to share the positive bits and pieces of the Bible in order to be politically correct but ignore the parts of the Scripture that might offend others In 2 Timothy 4 24, Paul the Apostle warned us of the consequences of being ashamed to preach the gospel, saying, Preach the word be prepared in season and out of season correct, rebuke and encouragewith great patience and careful instruction For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths I hate to tell you this, folks, but the times that Paul warned us about are here Everywhere you look across our once great land, politicians, special interest groups, and people under the control of the Evil One are erasing any visible signs of Christianity Theyre muzzling the people who speak the truth If you speak out about sins like adultery, drunkenness, or sexual impurity, youre labeled as ignorant, insensitive, bigoted, or even hateful The PC police constantly preach tolerance and acceptance, but theyre intolerant of beliefs that arent in line with their own Certain Americans condemn businesses like Chick fil A for speaking out against same sex marriages, but then were told to celebrate companies like Ben Jerrys ice cream and Starbucks because they embrace them Is it not a two way street Isnt there supposed to be freedom of speech on both sides of the issue The amazing thing to me is that biblical correctness has never changed Its written on the pages of the Bible and the words have remained the same through the ages The sins are listed and are there for everyone to see Each of us has the ability to read them, study them, and then decide whether were going to sin or follow Gods commands Conversely, political correctness is constantly changing and evolving What might have been PC yesterday isnt PC today, even if its only the smallest of things Now, Im all for being kind and thoughtful in the way we refer to people, but good grief We get a bit ridiculous at times Manholes have been renamed utility holes so as not to offend women, and blackboards are now called chalkboards so as not to offend African Americans People who cant hear are no longer deaf theyre hearing impaired People who cant see are no longer blind theyre visually impaired People arent even short any theyre vertically challenged So do we call a bald man follically impaired Political correctness is constantly morphing into a dark maze of nonsense It keeps getting and nonsensical Yet, there has been a constant erosion of biblical correctness in our country Look at the evidence in recent years A large cross that was prominently displayed outside a chapel at an isolated military base in northern Afghanistan was removed in 2011 because it didnt adhere to U.S Army regulations The army chaplain manual now prohibits permanent displays of religious symbols I didnt serve in the military, but it would seem to me that the cross might be a source of comfort and relief to the troops who are risking their lives in battles in foreign lands But, hey, thats just me In La Jolla, California, the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups are demanding that a twenty nine foot tall cross that stands on government owned land on Mount Soledad be dismantled Crosses have been erected on the land since 1913, and the present cross is the centerpiece of a Korean War Memorial The ACLU contends the cross violates the separation of church and state because it demonstrates preference to a specific religion In December 2013, a federal judge ordered the cross to be removed, but the case is being appealed At Camp Pendleton in California, U.S Marines are fighting to keep two thirteen foot crosses erected on a remote hill on the base The memorial was first erected in 2003 by seven marines who were grieving for fallen soldiers lost in the war on terror After the original cross was destroyed by a wildfire, a group of marines and widows carried two new ones up the hill At the base of the crosses are several rocks, which were carried and left by the friends, widows, and children of fallen soldiers A group called the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers is demanding that the crosses be removed So far the marines havent buckled, although a moratorium on the placement of religious symbols on bases has been put in place In 2012, the U.S Forest Service denied an atheist groups request to have a Jesus statue removed from government owned land on a Montana mountain The statue was installed in 1955 by the local chapter of the Knights of Columbus as a memorial to local veterans of World War II Fortunately, the Forest Service extended the special use permit for another ten years because the local community revered the statue and wanted it to stay The atheists and the other special interest groups who are opposed to having crosses, statues of Jesus, and other religious symbols on public grounds say its a matter of separation of church and state But if you go back and read what our founding fathers said and wrote while they were building the greatest republic in the world, you would never conclude that they wanted to separate God from the fabric of political life in America In fact, its the last thing you would probably conclude But now the thought police are trying to rewrite U.S history The men who signed the Declaration of Independence, like Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, Benjamin Rush, and John Adams, were godly men They were men who governed according to the principles of God and their conscience But now we have men in power who have renounced the Bible, which is the only accurate map of the human heart that has ever been published Theres evidence throughout American history that our government and its officials have often acknowledged God as the cornerstone of our laws and liberties Dont believe me Pull a few coins out of your pocket and read the inscriptions In God We Trust was first inscribed on U.S coins in 1864 by an act of Congress, and in 1956 Congress made those sacred words our countrys national motto When George Washington became the first U.S president in 1789 he added the words so help me God to his inauguration oath and many presidents since have spoken them Since the early 1820s, the U.S Supreme Court has opened its sessions with the prayer of God save the United States and this Honorable Court, and Congress has started its sessions with prayer since 1789 It wasnt only our founding fathers who were godly men Many American presidents relied on their faith to guide them while serving in the most powerful position in the world When children recite the Pledge of Allegiance before starting a school dayat least those who are still allowed to recite itdont they say, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all Do you know why On June 14, 1954, President Dwight Eisenhower signed a bill into law that added under God to the Pledge of Allegiance Eisenhower stated From this day forward, the millions of our school children will daily proclaim in every city and town, every village and rural school house, the dedication of our nation and our people to the Almighty In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in Americas heritage and future in this way we shall constantly strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our countrys most powerful resource, in peace or in war President Eisenhower said our spiritual weapons would be Americas most powerful resources, whether at peace or in war, and he was absolutely right We need those resources than ever in todays world During a speech before the Attorney Generals Conference on Law Enforcement Problems on February 15, 1950, President Harry S Truman said The fundamental basis of this nations law was given to Moses on the Mount The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St Matthew, from Isaiah and St Paul I dont think we emphasize that enough these days What would President Truman think about our country today Religion, the Bible, and the church are woven within the fabric of American heritage There are religious symbols throughout Washington, DC At the Supreme Court building, theres a marble frieze on the south wall of the courtroom that features Moses holding the Ten Commandments, along with images of Confucius, Muhammad, kings and various Greek philosophers There is a statue of Moses in the rotunda of the Library of Congress, and the Ten Commandments are symbolized in the floor of the National Archives building Even the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, which is a symbol of American independence, was cast with part of the Scripture from Leviticus 25 10 Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof Of course, many of those government buildings were constructed when faith and religion were still the foundation of our country Are we going to one day remove these religious symbols from our history, too Nowadays, theyre trying to remove the Ten Commandments from courtrooms across the country In 2001, Roy Moore, then chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, installed a 5,280 pound granite monument of the Ten Commandments in the rotunda of the states judicial building Of course, it didnt take long for three attorneys to sue him, alleging that the monument was an unconstitutional state endorsement of religion A U.S district judge ordered Moore to remove the monument after he lost his appeal, and when Moore refused, he was removed from the bench by a state ethics panel In 2005, a sharply divided U.S Supreme Court ordered that framed copies of the Ten Commandments on the walls of two rural Kentucky courthouses be taken down because they were violations of the separation of church and state At the time, Justice Antonin Scalia, one of the dissenting voices, said the decision was inconsistent with our founding fathers own views In fact, Scalia recalled the dark day of September 11, 2001, when terrorists attacked New York and Washington, DC When President George W Bush spoke to the American people shortly after the attacks, he concluded his remarks with God bless America Scalia, who was in Rome that day, said a European judge confided that he wished European leaders still included religious references in their speeches For the life of me, I cant figure out why anyone would want to remove the Ten Commandments from a courtroom Let me get this right youre an atheist and youre saying its a violation of your rights to have to look upon the Ten Commandments when you walk into a courthouse But much of the foundation of civil and criminal laws around the world was founded on the principles of the Ten Commandments Okay, lets start with number five in the laws God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai It says, Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you Well, let me ask you something Where does law enforcement take your children when they find them drunk and tearing up other peoples property They take them to stand before a judge If they honored their mothers and fathers, they wouldnt be disobedient and violate the laws of the land Where do they take children when they really step out of line and are rebellious Theyre going to take them to a juvenile court to determine their punishment It would seem to me that if the judge is going to try to teach a child a lesson for breaking the fifth commandment, the Ten Commandments might need to be hanging there for the child to see them If a man kills his neighbor, he has violated the sixth commandment, which says, You shall not murder If a judge is going to sentence him to life in prison, dont you think the Ten Commandments should be there so he can see what law he broke If a man commits adultery and gets caught in the act by his wife, he has broken the seventh commandment, which says, You shall not commit adultery His spouse is probably going to take him to divorce court and take half of his money and possessions And if a man gets caught robbing a bank, he has violated the eighth commandment, which says, You shall not steal The judge is probably going to sentence him to prison for knocking off the bank Wouldnt that be a good time to read him the Ten Commandments What happened to our country, folks Nowadays, our children no longer pray before the school day begins and greeters at certain department stores are no longer allowed to welcome customers with Merry Christmas during the holidays In some schools, our children arent even allowed to sing Christmas carols because the lyrics include Christ Dont even think about putting a nativity scene near a courthouse or public building They might throw you in jail When did Jesus Christ, the most perfect human to ever walk on the face of the earth, become a bad guy Political correctness trumps everything else in America nowadays, and Im convinced its another example of the Evil Ones ploys to deceive us Todays truth is based on what is socially acceptable, and biblical correctness has somehow become hate speech Satan is a master deceiver, and he works to provide nonbelievers with a platform of acceptance As it says in 2 Peter 2 2 Many will follow their depraved conduct and will bring the way of truth into disrepute When you move Jesus out of the equation, all thats left is political wrangling Theres no Gospel, and theres no Good News So everyone tries to fix Americas problems with politics alonethe spiritual realm has been pushed aside America desperately needs a political correction that only God can give Politicians cant fix the things that matter most, beginning with sin, physical death, righteousness, and holinesswell talk about these in the last section of the book Attributes such as morality and integrity cant be legislated Politics cant bring people peace, love, joy, honesty, and gentleness Only following Jesus can do that Even though were being scorned and mocked by the PC police, we have to stand up for what we believe, regardless of the consequences Its not about being politically correct its about being biblically correct And with the direction America is headed, Id much rather put my faith in the Bible than in politics Id rather our politicians be men and women who believe that the Bible is the Word of God You want political correctness Elect spiritual politicians who are biblically correct, and you will have itThe beloved patriarch of As Duck Dynasty series, Phil Robertson, shares his thoughtfuland
