An often used term is “political correctness.” It describes words, attitudes, and actions that are commonly accepted in society. Good manners and being polite are always good things, and people should be treated with respect and dignity as much as is possible. There is a line, however, that we dare not cross, and that is to be politically correct at the expense of being biblically and morally incorrect. It is to fear something else more than we fear God, or to show greater allegiance to something else more than we show to God.
Isaiah 51:12-13 says, “I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mortal men, the sons of men, who are but grass, that you forget the Lord your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction? For where is the wrath of the oppressor? “
The Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, it is He causes grace to abound toward us today, and it is He to whom we must give the ultimate accounting at the last day. We want to be kind to people, and we will make every effort to do so, but we must be true to our Lord.
