Random thoughts on intolerance

teacuppamela.pngI’m doing housekeeping today… many things needed sorting and filing, washing and ironing.  Teatime brought to mind some thoughts from the past weekend.

  • It’s getting fiercer and fiercer, the slick and sick double standard of those who scream to be tolerated —  not just tolerated, but venerated — endorsed — lauded.   I’m not a proponent of beauty pageants per se, but it’s sure detestable that a ‘qualified contestant’ is being dragged through the mud for articulating her answer to a question regarding her thoughts on marriage — the answer was contrary to one or more of the “judges'” personal beliefs and, therefore, she’s unqualified.  So much for tolerance.
  • The new Free Speech:  You’re free to say what you like and hold the beliefs you choose to hold so long as you make sure you agree with  homosexual behaviour and the propaganda machine that is ravaging the world.   And if you don’t believe there’s an agenda, read:  The Marketing of Evil by David Kupelian — you’ll be introduced in that book to another book, After the Ball, and if you dare to read it (and I don’t say this lightly, it is not light reading and may not be suitable for anyone) it is sobering, you’ll see the agenda is well underway and very, very successful in a dark way.   (I wrote about Mr. Kupelian’s book a few years ago…. I can’t recall the blog date on that).
  • Voddie Baucham

    Family Driven Faith

    A man who is not afraid to speak the Truth.

    David Kupelian’s

    The Marketing of Evil 

    it’ll change the way you see everything in society!

  • As long as you don’t mess with the agenda, you’ll be accepted — if not, you’ll be castigated, mocked and scorned to death.  You can read a bit more of what happens when you dare to teach the truth which is not believed by a percentage of the population.   We attended the Worldview Apologetics Conference held at the Crossroads Bible Church in Bellevue last weekend — obviously a predetermined target — at the start of the conference, the church building was vandalized by a group determined to “bash back” with pink paint, foul words and phrases and broken locks and other damages.

    Two of the speakers at the seminar were Voddie Baucham and Doug Geivett.  Both were excellent at articulating the Truth of the Word, the climate of society today and the bold attempt to destroy the Truth and Believers.   Voddie Baucham is probably one of the most articulate and inspiring speakers I’ve ever had the privilege of listening to.  I first heard him and thought this two years ago at the Heritage Homeschool conference — he will be the keynote speaker again this year.  If you haven’t heard him or read any of his books, I would highly recommend that you hear his talks and read his books.  For info on the Christian Heritage Conference being held this coming weekend go here.    I would recommend this conference for *every* believer… *every* parent.

  • One of the weapons against the church or “conservatives” is the word: hate.  If you disagree, you hate.  If you disagree, you’re a hater.  If your view is Biblical, you’re intolerant.  If you, on biblical grounds, disagree with a lifestyle choice, you are an intolerant, judgmental person.  But those who disagree with Christians… are not judgmental?Christians must judge situations — Christians must prove all things — must hold to that which is good.

    Those in disagreement are duping Christians into believing they must be tolerant… they say Christians are not to judge — au contraire — Christians must identify that which is Truth and follow it — and those things that are contrary to the Truth are to be condemned – it takes wise judgment to discern good and evil.  I marvel that Christians are willing to allow ideas contrary to the Word of God to determine their world view.   For lack of knowledge, believers are being destroyed.  When Bible teachers do not teach what the Word says and believers do not read what the Word says — and when, instead, “pastors” teach from stories of paraphrases of the Bible, people, who do not study for themselves what the Scriptures say, will be ignorant of the Truth.

Fear of being judged by those who hate God’s Word
is keeping those who would love God from obeying His Word.


One thought on “Random thoughts on intolerance

  1. I was upset about President Obama’s speech in Turkey (I think) when he said that the US is not a Christian nation (or Jewish or Muslim). Then he went on to say something like we’re a nation of citizens who are bound by a set of ideals and values. Really? And what are those ideals and values and who is setting the bar for them? Today I caught part of another one of his speeches, and he ended with “God bless you and God bless the United States of America”. I just don’t get this president.
