Since Political Correctness set in to America’s culture, we need to hear more than ever from those with real Common Sense (wisdom). What is the difference between Political Correctness and Common Sense?
Meriam Wester Dictionary definition of “political correctness” is: conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend ‘political’ sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be eliminated. 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.
So powerful is the draw of political tribalism that people are now increasingly able to turn their tastes on a dime in order to conform with what is politically correct.
Common Sense: sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts.
P.C. says: Everyone must have a college education. C.S. says: It is senseless to pay to educate a fool, since he has no heart for learning. (Proverbs 17:18)
P.C. says: What is truth, but what we say truth is? And, what is justice, but how we see justice? C.S. says: “Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent; both are detestable. It is not right to acquit the guilty or deny justice to the innocent.” Proverbs 17:17
P.C. says: Who are you to judge us? C.S. says: When you deny God’s truth there are sure consequences. “So they read from the Book of the Law of God, explaining it and giving insight (common sense) so that the people could understand what was being read.” Nehemiah 8:8
Proverbs 13:16 “Every sensible person acts knowledgeably, but a fool displays his stupidity.”
Proverbs 14:15 “The naive believes everything, but the sensible man considers his steps. The inexperienced one believes anything, but the sensible one watches his steps.”
Proverbs 14:18 “The naive inherit foolishness, But the sensible are crowned with knowledge.”
P.C. says: We must open our borders to all, since that is our American heritage. C.S. says: Protect your borders and your law-abiding citizens by establishing, upholding and enforcing prudent laws and right systems to govern by. For those who want to come into your nation, understand and judge why they want to come in.
P.C. says: When there is mass killing it is because of guns; so we must take away the right for law abiding citizens to own guns. C.S. says: This mass killing was because of evil in the heart. We must punish the criminal with quick justice and make people responsible for their actions.
Jeremiah 16:12 “And you have done more evil than your fathers. See how each of you was following the stubbornness of his evil heart, instead of obeying Me.”
James 1:14-15 “But each one is tempted when by his own evil desires he is lured away and entice. Then after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is fully grown, it gives birth to death.”
P.C. says: We must allow men who think they are women into the women’s bathroom with women and little girls. C.S. says: Normal women and children have rights too; therefore, give those who are confused and deceived – their own bathroom. Why take a right away from one in favor of another?
2 Chronicles 19:6-7 “Consider carefully what you do, for you are not judging for man, but for the LORD, who is with you when you render judgment. And now, may the fear of the Lord be upon you. Be careful what you do, for with the Lord our God there is no injustice, partiality or bribery.” People who only think and care about themselves, will lash out at those with Common Sense. (Proverbs 18:1)
So where is our country headed, and what will my grandchildren be faced with if Political Correctness continues to be used in governing our nation? Free speech ended for those who live by God’s Word. Arrests for those who get caught preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Imprisonment for those who convert others to Christianity. Educating all children in schools in how to think and speak and live.
The Bible says that in the last days, “That which is evil will be called good, and that which is good will be called evil.” So, the question is: Are we in the last days, and if so – are you ready?
