Men, Be Courageous in Battle Against Political Correctness Madness
By Benham Brothers
Submission to political correctness creates weak men – men who lack the courage to stand for what they believe, simply for fear someone might get “offended.”
This is the reason why so many men, including us, have become fans of Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz. This dude refuses to pander to limp-wristed political correctness, standing not only for his Christian faith but also for his hunting dog!
Last week, we got a good laugh at his response to a politically correct tweet someone sent him after he posted a birthday pic of his dog, Mama Henley, standing beside a heap of dead ducks.
We loved his response – especially the last part that read, “Stay convicted about it and don’t worry what others think!”
Wentz is spot on. It’s vital today, especially for those who desire to live faithfully according to the moral teachings of Christ, to stand with courage for what you believe and not worry about what others think. Of course, all this is in the context of speaking the truth in love when taking a stand.
So if you find yourself waffling when it comes to standing strong, you can take a page out of Carson Wentz’s book and you can read a few verses out of God’s book to gain the courage needed to push back the crippling force of political correctness:
“The fear of man brings a snare, but he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted” – Proverbs 29:25.
“Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, a people in whose heart is My law; do not fear the reproach of man, nor be dismayed at their revilings” – Isaiah 51:7.
“I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you are afraid of man who dies and of the son of man who is made like grass …” – Isaiah 51:12.
“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the defense of my life; whom shall I dread?” – Psalm 27:1.
“The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid. What will man do to me?” – Hebrews 13:6.
“In God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?” – Psalm 56:11.
“For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ” – Galatians 1:10.
“But just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts” – 1 Thessalonians 2:4.
