"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32

VOCABULARY 101


~ by A.M. Kisly

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS DOES NOT EQUAL TRUTH BY DEFINITION

There is a Hal Lindsey Report posted at the top of this website. I hope you will watch it in its entirety, because it deals with the issue of political correctness taking over every aspect of life. As believers, it is important to hold true to our Christian Worldview as opposed to the New World Views being pushed at us by those who have embraced "CHANGE".

Black
is not white; red is not green; the sky is not orange and TRUTH cannot be changed to fit a political agenda.


Since so many of our "so-called" leaders, teachers, and educated news media feed us a constant diet of "UNTRUTHS", I thought it would help us to look at the definitions of a couple of words. I am just fed up with the BRAIN WASHING of society.

According to: The Free Dictionary

POLITICALLY CORRECT
adj. Abbr. PC
1. Of, relating to, or supporting broad social, political, and educational change, especially to redress historical injustices in matters such as race, class, gender, and sexual orientation.
2. Being or perceived as being over concerned with such change, often to the exclusion of other MORE IMPORTANT matters.


According to:Webster’s American Dictionary of the English Language 1828

TRUTH

1.Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.

My mouth shall speak truth. Proverbs 8
Sanctify them through thy truth; thy word is truth. John 17

2.True state of facts or things. The duty of a court of justice is to discover the truth. Witnesses are sworn to declare the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

3.Conformity of words to thoughts, which is called moral truth. (Shall truth fail to keep her word? Milton)

4.Veracity; purity from falsehood; practice of speaking truth; habitual disposition to speak truth; as when we say, a man is a man of truth.

5.Correct opinion.

6.Fidelity; constancy.

7.Honesty; virtue.

8.Exactness; conformity to rule.

9.Real fact or just principle; real state of things. There are innumerable truths with which we are not acquainted.

10.Sincerity. (God is a spirit, and they that worship him must worship in spirit and in truth. John 4)

11.The truth of God, in his veracity and faithfulness. (Psalm 71) Or his revealed will. I have walked in thy truth. (Psalm 26)

12.Jesus Christ is called the truth. (John 14)

13.It is sometimes used by way of concession. (She said, truth, Lord; yet the dogs eat of the crumbs. Matthew 15) That is, it is a truth; what you have said, I admit to be true.

14.In truth, in reality; in fact.

15.Of a truth, in reality; certainly.

16.To do a truth, is to practice what God commands. John 3

There you have it in plain English! Let's not be duped into the NEW WORLD VIEW being imposed upon us. Stick to the TRUTH, especially where it concerns our Christian values.
