Are Churches Becoming Politically Correct? – Truth Magazine

As another example of being politically correct the government rewards laziness and calls it welfare. There are churches that do the same and call it a ministry to the disadvantaged. The Bible teaches that the church is to help the needy saints, however if able bodied folk won’t work, neither should they eat (2 Thess. 3:10).

It isn’t politically correct to call people what the Bible calls them. Society says that alcoholism is a sickness or an alcohol problem. The Bible calls such people drunkards. It is sin and such will not inherit the kingdom of God. Many churches choose the politically correct approach which is to ignore it and not teach on drunkenness.

Jesus wasn’t politically correct to the chief priests, the scribes, or the Pharisees and he certainly wouldn’t be in our day. He told the Pharisees that they honored him with their lips but their hearts were far from him. Their worship was in vain because they were teaching the commandments of men instead of the commandments of God. His disciples came to him and asked him if he knew that this had offended the Pharisees? Jesus didn’t apologize for teaching the truth but told them they were like blind guides leading the blind and both would fall into a pit (Matt.15:8-9, 12-14).
