Are You Trying to be Politically Correct?


By Andrea Merrell

Your word, Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.

Psalm 119:89 NIV


“You can’t say that word anymore,” the daughter said to her mom. “It’s no longer politically correct. People will get offended.”

Her mom frowned. “Says who?”

I’m with the mom. Who gets to make the rules? The government? Society? Hate groups? I know one thing for sure … it certainly isn’t the Christian community.

I guess you could call me old-school and a bit stubborn because I’m not about to try and blend in with the crowd. Even if I wanted to, the rules change from one day to the next. It would be exhausting—not to mention nearly impossible—to stay up with the most current trend of acceptable terms.

In these days we’re living in, it’s far more important to be scripturally correct. We need to know God’s Word—which never changes—and not be afraid to speak truth whenever we have the opportunity.

This world and all its evil ways will one day be gone. But God’s kingdom and His Word will go on for all eternity. We can either keep trying to please the world and the powers that be or know that we are pleasing God by standing strong in faith on His truth.

Politically correct or scripturally correct? The choice is yours.
