But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
- Romans 3:21-24
The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
- 2 Peter 3:9
This morning I wrote the quiz based on the Scripture cited in the Four Spiritual Laws tract. My latest stack of tracts was thrown away by someone whose goal was to not spread the word of God.
Thus, to get a full list of the Scripture references, and not trust my memory, I searched online. I finally found an online version, but in the meantime, I was directed to the Talk: tab of the “Cru” Article in the famous, or infamous, online free encyclopedia.
I could simply title this post as, never go there unless you want to see a lot of hate speech. Odd, how you can type hate speech into “talk” tabs about Christianity, but I wonder if the police would come after you if you wrote something about some specific other groups.
One of the people who wrote said that they had changed “Christian” to “people” until, in the narrative, they accepted Christ. At that point, they were “Christians” and there was nothing that could be changed to not offend at that point.
Another attacked the “Laws” as not being supported by the Scripture. You would think that these haters were illiterate, but in considering that when in darkness, you cannot see the light… They could read “For God so loved the world…” and not make any connection that God, in sending His Son, sent that Son for them, personally, if they believed. That is the point, I fear. These haters are not Christians trying to get the words correct; they are people registered with this “-pedia” system trying to use the system’s rule of “neutral point of view (NPOV)” to silence Christianity. The “Cru” article identifies Cru as a “Christian Organization.” You would think that only Christians could comment, for only Christians could have an NPOV on the topic. Non-Christians might easily be offended and NOT have an NPOV. That simply makes sense, but attacking an article that clearly defines Cru as Christian and arguing that the article is not NPOV, because they say things about Christianity, is beyond insanity.
And I think my point here is something that Rev. David Robertson, the Wee Flea, has been saying for some time. These few California billionaires (and a scattering of others) are determining what people are allowed to say, and in time, allowed to think.
At first, I thought the article had been removed until I saw that I was on the “Talk” tab, directed there by the search engine; my dander settled a bit. It looked as if the article had been removed in favor of this vitriol.
And it was uninformed vitriol. The Scriptures support the “Laws.” The article, once defined as “Christian” is neutral in that there is nothing that pigeonholes anything into a denomination or a certain way of thinking. There was one comment about God loving everyone and that the statement could be widely accepted except for Calvinists. I consider that definitely as hate speech. As a Calvinist, of sorts, since I am Presbyterian and thus Reformed, I believe that God honestly stated in the Scripture that it is not His desire that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9). But that verse also talks about how we must repent, and not repenting is our choice, just as writing mean comments is a choice.
And yet, we have a small group of people who program the computer and adjudicate justice on what is a neutral point of view and what is not. If they are not Christians, in this case, they cannot have the understanding necessary to make that judgment, because that understanding comes from the Holy Spirit after they accept Jesus.
Thus, due to a lack of understanding on a spiritual level, they condemn Christianity as “hate” speech and not NPOV, simply due to their own misunderstanding.
And this entire concept of NPOV stems from the concept of “Safe Space” where people can live while never hearing an opposing opinion.
This will lead to people who cannot critically think (measuring opposing opinion against a chosen set of standards), eventually to not being able to think at all. This is what the maniacal power-hungry politicians wish, along with the “.com” companies in California. So that we can abdicate our freedoms as long as we can remain simpletons, unwilling and, in time, unable to think. And as Ezekiel 28 suggests between the prince of Tyre (the human ruler) and the king of Tyre (Satan himself), we know who is fueling these politicians and computer software people.
This blog site states that the views herein are those of the author. I am a Christian. As such, I will hold to my belief that God loves everyone, while we were still sinners, and Jesus died for us to save sinners. But there is no equivocation in 2 Peter 3:9 about maybe repent of some sins or never repenting ever. We may struggle, but we must repent. Or in the end, as Jesus stated in the parable of the sheep and the goats, we may hear the Master say, “Depart for me! I never knew you.”
Soli Deo Gloria. Only to God be the Glory.
