We are currently living in what we believe to be the most cowardly season in our nation’s history. We are a nation of people who for the most part, no longer pursue the truth in any arena.
We have been led to believe, rather we have been bullied to believe that there is no God and the truth should not, cannot be spoken if it offends anyone. We have collectively decided that we have an unwritten constitutional right not to be offended by anyone or anything!
And yet if some brave soul does proclaim to know and discuss the truth in an open forum, especially a truth regarding any moral issue, he or she is immediately accused as a hater or host of other derogative labels that often results in the marginalization or silencing of that lone, brave voice.
These types of assaults have created an immense amount of confusion and fear not only in the secular community, but in the Christian community as well, which has had a stifling impact on how many parents are raising the next generation.
Instead of raising a generation of men and women of courage and purpose who have a common moral identity in the greatest nation on the face of the planet, we are willingly raising a generation of snowflake children who are offended by every spoken word outside of their close minded belief system.
We are for all intents and purposes, raising weak minded cowards who have become drones in a politically correct society who continue to proselytize the false narrative that truth is just relative and that to be tolerant, one must believe that all views are equally valid.
This twisted philosophy is suffocating the truth in
our culture and forcing us into a type of immoral and unethical bondage. It is amazing to
consider that in just a few hundred years Americans have forgot that our nation was founded by a
people who escaped religious bondage and tyranny; fought for their freedom and liberty which
gave rise to decades and decades of prosperity, which has led to complacency and even now
apathy; ultimately resulting in bondage...again!
