It’s not hard to get discouraged in our day-to-day lives. Every day the media bombards us with sex, violence, greed and other immoral messages, and we are expected to accept this as what is normal and good. Political correctness has even got to the point where many of us don’t feel comfortable sharing our faith, in fear that we might offend somebody somewhere somehow at sometime in some way. If you don’t believe me, go before a large group of people and tell them that homosexuality is immoral and marriage should only be between a man and a woman. Some will whole-heartedly agree, some will argue with you and call you a bigot from the stone age, but most will just sit there uncomfortably, not saying one word.
So why don’t the majority speak up? Maybe they don’t want to offend someone, maybe they are just tired of talking about the subject altogether or maybe they simply do not care. “It doesn’t affect me, why should I even worry about it?” But, what if it does affect you? Do you have children or plan on having them in the future? Do you want them raised in a world where they are taught that they can do absolutely anything they want, just as long as it makes them feel good. A world where morality isn’t even in the back seat anymore because political correctness threw it out the window and sent it bouncing down the highway three counties back.
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. -Colossians 3:16
As Christians, we are instructed to spread the good word. We must speak up when we see something wrong. We cannot just sit by and watch as our values are surely being stripped away and we can’t be afraid to speak of our faith. We have to know that with God, we will have strength that can be matched by none. It is not easy, but we know in our hearts it is right. We must run and not grow weary, and we must walk strong in the name of the Lord.
We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, -2 Corinthians 10:5
