Brief on Political Correctness
Dr. Mike Johnston
By definition, political correctness means “conforming to a belief that language and practices- which could offend political sensibilities as in matters of sex or race- should be eliminated.” In Biblical terms, this appears to be something Scripture warned us would earmark the last days: “the way of truth shall be evil spoken of” (2 Peter 2:2).
Political correctness holds to the following unwritten yet demonstrable tenets:
1. Truth is what we say it is
2. Everyone has their own truth
3. All truth is equal except Bible truth
4. Bible truth is hate speech
5. Deception, derision, and denigration are encouraged in the fight against hate speech
When discussing or examining the purveyors of political correctness Christians need to bear in mind that Satan is a master deceiver skilled at providing liars with a platform of acceptance, applause, and advancement. Studying Scripture shows us that all of his schemes are lending themselves to the final world empire ruled by Antichrist (Dan. 7-12; 2 Thess. 2:3-12; Rev. 11-19), the incarnation of Lucifer who will himself be the king of delusion.
