Covert False Righteousness

Covert False Righteousness


“If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything.”

This is a true statement. I am applying it right now to Biblical Worldview. If you don’t have a comprehensive Biblical Worldview you will be easily be deceived by the various ungodly agendas in the world.

One of the most common forms of Worldview Deception is to use an appeal to moral indignation about something that is universally considered wrong in order to cloak a darker Worldview Agenda.

The most common of such deceptions that I have noticed is the manipulative use of the poor. How many times have you heard “God cares about the poor” followed by (basically) “therefore it is un-Christian to oppose these civil government based welfare ‘redistribution of wealth’ plans that we are proposing.” Of course, these types of solutions to poverty are based on a corrupted worldview and will only lead to bondage for both “the poor” and “the rich.” Creating hostility between these two alleged groups is a fundamental strategy of Marxism.

But this note is not about poverty. I want to call your attention to another bad Worldview Agenda that is being cloaked in (false) righteousness.

The agenda is to promote the forced acceptance of homosexual behavior via the force of the civil government. The latest trend for cloaking that agenda is the issue of bullying.

Various states and the federal government currently have legislation either pending or passed to prevent “bullying.”

Things to be aware of:

  1. Classes in schools to prevent “bullying.” Are they really neutral classes or workshops to discourage anyone from bullying anyone else, or are they being used to promote “if you believe or say that homosexual behavior is morally wrong then you are a bully”?
  2. Legislation pretending to be about anti-bullying that is actually being used to promote the use of the force of civil government to silence opposition to the acceptance of homosexual behavior.
  3. News articles, television ads, etc. trying to raise awareness of bullying, especially emphasizing the bullying of homosexual behavior.

No one should be bullied. Not even if they are being bullied because of a perceived “sexual-orientation;” but that doesn’t mean we need a host of new laws, agendas, civil government programs, etc. to stop it. Parents in local communities are the answer, not our “statist” saviors.

I would suggest to you that you always be wary of attempts to solve all of societies ills with the force of civil government, especially the use of the national civil government. There is a good chance that things are not what they appear.

It may sound “righteous” and appeal to your emotions, but it very well may be Covert False Righteousness.

Beware of worldview agendas!

Is it Time to Impeach Some Federal Judges?

Is it Time to Impeach Some Federal Judges?

Click Here for Image SourceI have often considered that one of the necessary steps to restoring liberty in America may be to impeach and remove federal judges who have blatantly made up fiction about things allegedly in the constitution. (For example, the recent case of Judge Vaughn Walker and “gay marriage.”)

Carson Holloway of The Public Discourse argues persuasively for pursuing this course of action:

“Such judicial activism has been an ongoing problem for decades. In response, a conservative legal movement has arisen to offer resistance through public and scholarly argument, the election of constitutionalist presidents and senators, and, ultimately, the appointment of judges and justices who will confine themselves to the requirements of the constitution and refrain from imposing their own values as law. Such efforts have been fruitful but never fully effective. Judicial activism has been slowed but not stopped, with the result that democratic self-governance and the rule of law continue gradually to erode. Since even the incremental surrender of these fundamental principles of American republicanism is unacceptable, it is time to weigh the use of stronger medicine. It is time to consider the impeachment of federal judges as a remedy to judicial activism.”  [Read More]

End of the World vs. Hope

End of the World vs. Hope

I recently posted an article by Chuck Colson on my facebook page:

“There are reports of rioting and looting across the country. But this is no time for such behavior. This crisis will be settled; central bank executives are meeting in Brussels even as I speak.

“I have alerted the Armed Services and issued a provisional order of martial law. This is not without precedent. President Lincoln took similar steps during the Civil War. I want to assure the American people that your safety and the just order of our society is my first priority.”

The President continued, “We must show the world that Americans are law-abiding, peace-loving citizens. So if you see military personnel in your area, obey them. The areas that have given us particular difficulty today have been largely secured. Fires that were wantonly set in Newark are being brought under control.”  [Read More]

One of my facebook friends responded with this comment:

“It makes me want to be an ostrich. I feel helpless.”

I can hardly blame her. For the past decades the Church as a whole has tended to blame all of the worlds problems on the fact that “this is the end of the world.”

How then do we as Christians warn each other and the world of the very real consequences of ditching God and his ways and the consequences of making up our own destructive “answers” to the problems in the world? How do we do sound the alarm of what really could happen while maintaining hope and even assurance of what God is going to do in the Earth?

Here is my response on facebook:

Read Daniel 2:31-45. The Iron in the Statue was the Roman Empire. The Feet made of Iron and Clay are the remnants of the Roman empire. A Kingdom was promised to come in those days (The days of ancient Rome when Jesus came!) that would shatter all of the Kingdoms of This World and replace them with the Kingdom of God filling the whole earth.

It is inevitable. God has decreed it. There is always hope. In fact, there is more than hope, there is assurance.

Read Habakkuk 2:14. (Happens to be quoted on the left side of my facebook profile). The earth WILL be filled with the Knowledge of the Glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea! God has said it and He will do it!

Read Matthew 28:18-20. Jesus tells us to preach the gospel to all nations because All Authority in Heaven AND ON EARTH has been given to Him! Also because of this authority we should teach the world to obey everything that He commanded. (Remember that Jesus also wrote the Old Testament!)

God has given us dominion. Matthew 5:5 says that the “Meek will Inherit the Earth.” That should be us.

We cannot lose. Our job is to preach and teach and live out the ways of God in every area of life and society. God will turn that into Global Victory for Ever!

Perhaps this is one of the reasons why Jesus said things like “Do not Be Afraid.”

As God once said to Joshua “Shout, for I have given you the city!”

Charles Colson’s article is a great example of a dilemma that we have as Christians. How do we warn each other and the world of the inevitable consequences of sin and anti-Christian worldviews while still building hope and giving the instruction and strength to conquer?

Sin (including sinful ideas) produces consequences. The Power of God and the Gospel will triumph. The key is to see that this is true even when it looks like the whole world is “going to hell in a handbasket.”

It is times like that where we find out what we really believe.

Hopefully you will find that discussion encouraging. 🙂
