Those who hold to a Judeo-Christian worldview are being pushed into a corner. Biblical values are increasingly being characterized as racist, bigoted, homophobic, transphobic, xenophobic, misogynist, climate deniers, election deniers, and just plain hate-filled. Whatever the topic, if there is a biblical worldview discussed, it is labeled as something detrimental to society. More and more, the biblical worldview is being pushed into a corner. Bank accounts of Christian organizations are being closed by big banks because the banks don’t agree with pro-life stances or that homosexuality is sin. False narratives are being pushed about Christians settling this country to proliferate slavery. It just never ends.
If you are a parent concerned about public school-sanctioned sexual predation on your children, you are labeled homophobic or transphobic. The public schools should be allowed to teach, groom, and recruit your child into a lifestyle that has the highest suicide rate in the country, and you are a hatemonger if you don’t comply with it. Never mind that the inerrant and infallible Word of God tells us in many places that these sexual practices are an abomination. They say Christians are haters because they just don’t understand that suppressing perceived gender rather than promoting birth gender is what really causes suicidal thoughts. Parents are being pushed into a corner where the immoral assume they are holding the high ground. Even the Biden Administration is trying to paint these parents as domestic terrorists.
The news media goes after Christians at every turn. As an example, The Media Research Center reported September 7 that MSNBC Guest Robert Jones went on “The Reid Out” and called Christianity a religion that justifies slavery and genocide. Jones was claiming that the Catholic church’s “Discovery Doctrine” from the “highest power of the Christian church” in the 1400s empowered Christians to “occupy, conquer, kill, steal” and put people in “perpetual slavery.” Host Joy Reid agreed and stated that this document motivated the landing on American shores and is still practiced today. This is just false. The Pilgrims, for example, recognized the evil in these doctrines, separated themselves from it and were escaping religious persecution in Europe. There is nothing in their documents that justifies slavery and genocide—quite the opposite.
Any “Christian” doctrine—implied or otherwise–that would justify stealing, killing, enslaving, and that non-Christians have no human rights is a doctrine of satan. God is the God of freedom. As is written in Galatians 3:28,”There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” When we are to preach the gospel to all creatures, these precepts must convey to all. Galatians 5:1 says, “Stand fast, therefore, in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” Using what evil men did in the name of Christ to paint all Christians with the same brush is wrong. Those who mock God and believe that the biblical worldview is hateful are pushing good people into a corner unjustly. The question is, how are we going to stand?
