Quote of the Week

"The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as American citizens. The time is come--it is now--when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship. America's future depends upon her accepting and demonstrating God's government.”

Peter Marshall, chaplain of the US Senate, 1947.

Compassion as a Tool of Deception

Deception:  1. an act or statement intended to make people believe something that is not true (Merriam Webster Dictionary)

As I look around the world, I am amazed by the deceptions that dominate the media air waves and many of our classrooms. Here are a couple examples: 

  • Changing the definition of marriage to allow any consenting adults to believe they are "married"--something which can only take place between a man and woman as recognized by 5000 years of history. (You can watch a powerful short video here that shreds this deception to pieces.)
  • That man-made global warming is the great issue of the 21st century when there is no proof that it is taking place and temperatures have been constant for over fifteen years. 

I could list scores of others, from politics to medicine. But there are two that are currently in the news that really got my attention.

They both involve the tactic of compassion as a tool of deception.

Saving Liberalism: An Appeal to My Progressive Friends

 

I've never liked the words "liberal" or "conservative" to describe people because I'm both liberal and conservative in the historic meaning of the words.

The problem comes when words carry multiple meanings or change over time and end up connotating something far different than when they were first introduced.

Words are sometimes like the proverbial frog boiling in the kettle:  slowly and subtlety they can change over the years and need to be either renounced due to distortion or renewed to their original context.

I want to make an appeal to my liberal, progressive friends today. Liberalism has devolved; It is in danger of becoming nothing less than brute force-- which is not liberal.

Will you join with me in saving liberalism?
