Do you ever listen to the “health experts” talk about the heath crisis of the day? They often talk as if they know everything associated to curing the latest malady. For example first there was the “don’t eat salt” rage. Then we found out that using salt is just fine. Then it was the “don’t eat eggs” craze. Now eating eggs is encouraged in the high protein diets. Then there was the “everyone is too fat” fad. This one is really funny because last year the government released the ideal body weight charts for Americans. I have always been pretty skinny, but on the government chart, 6ft. tall 177 lbs and I am 10 lbs over weight. Now just this week we hear on the news that being over weight is a good thing. So what is it?
Liberals are like these “health experts”, they first talk of this crisis, then the next one then on to another one. They are constantly changing what is right and wrong, both in politics and in society and they change the measuring stick by which we are to judge the issue.
One example of this is the same-sex marriage debate. Could you imagine John F. Kennedy supporting same-sex marriage? Could you imagine him making any of the augments that the liberals are making now in support of same sex marriage? I think not.
Look around in liberal circles; you see significant support for the Communist, Castro of Cuba. Could you imagine Kennedy thinking that way? Again, I think not.
Liberals change their minds and their arguments whenever it suits them. They go with the direction of society, whatever that direction is. Whether it leads to debauchery and destruction or not.
Let me give you an example of this. Liberals supported “no fault divorce”. They say this was for the protection of women so that if they were getting abused they could easily get out of a bad marriage. That is just fine, if a woman was getting abused she should get out of a marriage. The problem is, she could have gotten out of an abusive marriage before with the laws the way there were.
But, what was the result? We have rampant divorce everywhere. You don’t need any real reason at all to get divorced. And what has been the cost to society? As Hillary says, “It’s about the Children”. Our children have experienced massive devastation, from school shootings, drugs, cutting, teen pregnancy, the list goes on and on.
But Christian Conservatives generally stand for absolute unchanging truth. In our current example, a Christian conservative would have said that divorce is wrong and we should not go down the path of easy divorce. Therefore we would not have experienced this current devastation. Conservatives believe in absolute right and wrong or absolute truth.
Once you move to the world of absolute truth, relativism gets pushed aside. The effect of this is that for most of the issues of the day, Liberals loose the debate. Their debates are not based on unchanging truths; they are based on emotions and feelings so when a trump card of absolute truth gets played they quake in fear. They know they are defeated.
What does this mean for Conservative Christians?
1. Know the truth
2. Live the truth
3. Speak the truth
If you do this, you will have an incredible influence on society.
