Heavy topics after a weekend of heavy developments in the move toward global socialism. Discussed this invaluable insight, posted by Doug Wilson, from Theodore Dalrympe, and how it fits with everything else we’ve been trying to communicate of late:
Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
The issue of shame, humiliation, and the need to be focused upon knowing that we are pleasing God (and hence we cannot care if man seeks to falsely shame or accuse us), was in the forefront for the first part of the program. I also referred folks to my sermon from Sunday at Apologia Church, which you can find here.
Then we transitioned into a discussion of the global church and my challenge to pastors to make sure the flock is being fed, not by internet streams but in partaking of the Supper, fellowship, prayer, and the ministry of the Word.Tags: 00:00 Changes of 2021 04:00 Christian Protections Under Fire 09:45 Micro Blog RSS Feed 11:30 Doug Wilson Quote 12:00 Pleasing God 16:15 Wild Eyed Hypocrisy of the Left 24:30 Double Standards and Irrationality 26:50 Theodore Dalrymple Quote 31:00 Living According to Lies 33:00 Humiliation of Living Lies 36:15 Living a Lie is to Become Evil Oneself 42:00 Encouraging the Global Church 42:00 Talking to the Church Now 44:00 Government Interference in the Church 58:30 It is Well with My Soul 65:00 Two Years Ago Today
