The second problem we face is the loss of our freedom of speech and with this our freedom of religion. Political correctness controls and eliminates any disagreement with the "party line." Political correctness has led to censorship by people who disagree with another's point of view. Christians cannot speak up on what the believe because it is considered hate speech and are punished because they disagree with the party line. Again does the fact I disagree with some one's point of view mean I am being hateful? Let me ask the question another way. They fact that they disagree with me isn't that being hateful? You see, its only hateful when you disagree with them. Why is it that some people can speak out and others aren't allowed to speak? The answer is censorship. Take a few minutes and look around you and see what people are saying about other's point of view. Listen to the people whose point of view you agree with and ask yourself how would you feel if they were talking about you.
Unless their is a real revival in America, the hateful rhetoric will continue and freedom speech will be gone. Speak out against hateful rhetoric and stand up for a person's right to voice his/her opinions. This only a superficial solution. The real solution will come when hearts are change as a result of a real returning to God. Jesus said "A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings out good things; and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings out evil things." [Matthew 12:35] When a person trusts in Jesus as His personal Savior, the heart is transformed and it will reflect that transformation. Jesus also said, "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these." [Mark 23:30, 31] One definition of love is to treat another person the way you would want them to treat you.
