Churches Are Behind Political Correctness
“Political correctness” is a much-used phrase nowadays, the origin of which is thought by many to be Washington politics. Nothing could be further from the truth.
“Political correctness” has its origin in the liberal seminaries and churches. Government always reflects the faith and beliefs of the people. What is taught in the churches has its outworking in politics, and eventually the law of the land.
It is impossible to separate religion and state. There is no such thing as neutrality in education or law. All law is religious in nature. Proof of the above proposition is the recent legislation that approved adding to the ballot for the next election a marriage amendment, defining marriage as being only between a man and a woman.
The disturbing factor is that the liberalism in the churches has created the division that we are dealing with in our government. Our state and the nation are filled with denominational churches that have been systematically educated out of the view that the morality taught in Scripture is absolute. The modernism in church doctrine has resulted in a similar view of the nation’s Constitution.
Church leaders who think lightly of Scripture versions and literal interpretation reflect the same trends in leadership in Congress toward a literal application of the Constitution. They believe that both Scripture and the Constitution are living documents that need to be adjusted to an ever-evolving society of people.
What should be most feared are not the leaders in our government, but rather the spineless hirelings that parade themselves as ministers of God in our churches. Many pastors fear their congregations more than God. This is the real origin of “political correctness.”
