Christians scared to speak up or should they keep quiet?

Follow

By now, you’ve likely heard of the princess boy. You know, the little boy that wants to dress like a princess (on a regular basis). His parents completely support his decision and, in fact, his mom wrote a book about her supportive stance.

Then there was the mom that allowed her little boy to dress as female character last Halloween. Did you hear about that one?

There’s more.

The latest news is about the popular retailer whose ad depicts a mom painting her son’s toe nails a vibrant pink! Again, the social support has flooded in and I’m assure the retailer is simply thrilled for the press and national attention.

But, is a larger issue at play?

As guests on the morning talk shows discussed the latest ad, the commentators largely support it. In fact, conflicting opinions were labeled as “bullying” or inappropriate. In other words, their minds are completely open to accept transgender realities, then completely closed to views of Christianity or any conflicting modalities.

Have you noticed that society can speak of any lifestyle and any of choice, but when Christian values are raised, the social “boot” drops. What do you think? Does the world hate authentic Christianity? Now, I am not speaking of Christianity that is synthetic, all-accepting and wimpy. I mean a true, real depiction of the faith that is Bible-based, and encompasses the Godly standard while mirroring the life, commandments and knowledge of Jesus.

Hey, a simple visit to an online news outlet discussion group quickly reveals the contempt people have for a Christian World view.

So should Christians assimilate in silence or take a stand to confront wrong, sin and erroneous theologies? If so, then why don’t more Christians do it? Bear this scripture in mind as you contemplate your answer:

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. “If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.” John 15:18-19

  1. Hello Godsy Girl
    I recently wrote about this subject in my newsletter titled A WORLD THAT HATES GOD. Jesus spoke about these times, and to me it’s incredible and mind blowing how bold these advertisers / media / groups are.

    GOD’s people MUST SPEAK UP! John 18: 36…

    Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight

    We must continue to speak and stand on TRUTH!

  2. Amen P-Man,

    The world is growing more and more hostile, but this isn’t the time for us to hide our heads in the sand.

    You wouldn’t believe the emails I get from people that hate my posts. Oh well, I just laugh at them and hit the DELETE button!

    Likewise, I get emails from folks encouraging me and some evening re-dedicating their lives to the Lord. I guess it all balances out in the end, huh?

    Thanks for reading and commenting!
    Blessings forever,

    GodsyGirl
    P.S. Gonna check out your post.

  3. Great post! I just found your blog today and I really love it. I actually have my own blog for Christian girls in the dating process. I would LOVE for you to check it out and give me a few pointers, as I am new to all of this. Also, I think it would be beyond amazing if you could maybe write a post for my blog about the wisdom you have for girls who are not yet married.
    It seems like you have lots of wisdom being a pastor’s wife and a step ahead in life compared to most of my readers.

    Let me know what you think. Thanks, and God Bless!

  4. a resounding YES – we are to speak truth in love always. And if people are going to call us intolerant or close minded, than so be it. We must stand up for what is right, even if we are standing alone.

    I heard Dr. Tony Evans say, “The absence of righteousness in our culture has everything to do with the absence of God’s people penetrating the culture. When there is no yeast, the bread stays flat.”

    I couldn’t agree more.
