Are You Biblically or Politically Correct?

In 1998, I preached a message called "God's Standard of Cool vs The World's Standard of Cool." I followed the title with the phrase, "Which standard are you using to measure truth by?" In and through this message, I showed teenagers and adults that we have a standard to measure truth by called the Word of God, the Bible. The word standard has multiple meanings. It means normal, a flag, and or a method of measuring.
Most questions we are faced with can be adequately answered by saying yes or no. Yet, other questions are dependant on what standard we use to measure truth by. Our backgrounds, religious upbringing, political affiliation, and lifestyles determine our worldviews. We have all been indoctrinated with the doctrine called relativity. It says that what is true for you may not be true for me. It says that one religion is as good as another. It says that good and evil are nonexistent. Relativity teaches us that one opinion is aequally viable as another.
Now, political correctness is only mildly different from relativity. Political correctness is the successful global establishment of Liberal opinions, phrases, and patterns of acceptability. It is also the restriction of what is considered unacceptable opinions, phrases, and patterns of acceptability. Political correctness has become the norm in Western Civilization. What standard do you use to measure truth by?
With the exception of unelected judges, popular opinion sets the stage for what is considered normal in our societies. We allow the opinion of the majority to set the patterns for our lives. In the words of a popular Christian band:

Whatcha thinking, doing the things you do
Whose opinion are ya listening to?
Justifying, you turn it all to gray,
Synchronizing to society's ways.

Society has gotten to be all outta whack,
Don't bother with excuses whether white or black.
To blame it on a color won't get a result
Because history reveals to me how ethics were lost.
In reality our decency has taken a plunge,
"In God We Trust" is an American pun,
Funny how it happened so suddenly, yo fellas, kick the melody...

Socially acceptable, it's okay, it's alright
Socially acceptable, it's okay, in whose sight
Socially acceptable

Times are changing, with morals in decay,
Human rights have made the wrongs okay.
Something's missing, and if you're asking me,
I think that something is the G- O- D.
To label wrong or right by the people's sight,
Is like going to a loser to ask advice.
And by basing your plans on another man's way of living life
I is creating a brand of ethics sure to be missing the punch,
No count morals that are out to lunch.
They're sliding away 'cause everything is okay,
It was taboo back then but today we say, "What the hey."

Repeat Chorus

We gotta back to the principles found in the Word,
A little G-O-D could be society's cure
From the state that we're in 'cause again we're slipping,
So pray for America cause time is ticking.

Christianity is still the largest "religion" in the world. But have you considered that if you add all the numbers of members of nonChristian religions together, we are far outnumbered? What happens when you look back to the numbers included in the Christian religion and investigate to see how many no longer believe that the scripture is the standard we are to measure truth by? They have begun to rely on opinion, popular opinion mind you, instead of God's pattern of normality.
When if 4 billion humans agree together with one voice that something is good but the one God says it is evil and should be avoided, what pattern is the norm? Which voice becomes the stage by which you pattern your life and beliefs? What standard are you using to measure truth by?

When my friends go to vote this Tuesday November 2nd 2004, I ask that you be Biblically Correct instead of Politically Correct.

The doctrines of Jesus are simple, and tend all to the happiness of mankind.

I concur with the author in considering the moral precepts of Jesus as more pure, correct, and sublime than those of ancient philosophers.
