THE WATCHMAN: Liberalism’s Attack on the Family
Isaiah 62:6 ~ I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence…
The attack on the family is vast and unprecedented more than ever before in our history. In this article, I would like to give some warnings to parents. As we travel down this path we will see liberalism in perhaps, a different light. The true meaning of liberalism is much more than the far left or the extreme arm of the Democratic Party. Liberalism doesn’t just have its arms in America, but is worldwide. Liberalism (political correctness – P.C.) is used to describe avoidance of language, policies, or measures that are intended to avoid offense or disadvantage to members of groups in society. As you may have already noticed, this philosophy of liberalism has been invading all spectrums of society including the family, from our elementary schools through the levels of higher education. In my opinion liberalism is the beating heart of the socialistic ideology. Christianity must be put down for others to completely take over.
Have you noticed how many words are becoming unacceptable? Even the words man and woman are under attack for not being politically correct? Some say we should be saying persons, instead. Our children are being fed a boatload of this liberal philosophy, primarily on the East and West coasts.
I am working as a bus driver to help raise my grandchildren, and what I see really doesn’t shock me anymore. However, alarm bells should be going off in our minds because our Christian, core beliefs are also under attack.
Have you ever heard your child say something to you or give you their opinion on something that you didn’t teach them and wonder where in the world they got that? Don’t be surprised, because they probably got it from the classroom, their peer group, social media, or from watching television, which is completely controlled by liberals.
In the scriptures, Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” It could read like this… My people are cut down for lack of understanding in how Satan uses craftiness when he uses our skills or knowledge against us. This liberalism agenda is so pervasive that it is coming into the American family in so many ways and, unfortunately I daresay, most don’t understand it and the damage it is doing to their family.
This next paragraph is a golden nugget to any reader. Please read a couple of times and pray for the Lord to help you to see if you can identify any remarks, words and/or attitudes that may be coming into your home that you didn’t choose for your family.
I Corinthians 3: 10-11 …The words LAID and LAY in the Greek (purpose, promise or fixed by one’s own power) on one’s own or other’s foundation (I Corinthians 3: 10-12) The word SOUL (i.e. mind) means the very battleground that every individual must deal with daily in their own life. Simply put, what you say or by your actions you are laying on another’s foundation (soul or mind) which, in turn, can change that one’s thoughts and/or beliefs. Hitler understood this with his socialistic ideology.
There are children in elementary school telling parents that they think they are a boy, when God made them a girl. In Delaware, they are trying to pass laws allowing small children to determine their race and sex without the approval of their parent. The school system would make this decision and leave the parent out, in some situations. Many of our young people have already been brainwashed in this homosexual agenda, and will even tell us as parents there’s nothing wrong with this. Each person can make up their own mind. That is called liberalism and political correctness, but I call it sin, lies, and deceit by Satan himself.
I do not use profanity, but there is a word that has been coming up more and more in commercials, TV shows, Congress, and children and adults alike are saying this certain word, even on the school bus I drive. This word is called freakin’, which means the F_ _ _Word. When I share this with some, they are not aware of the original meaning and get very defensive when I share about it with them. I was sharing about the word freakin’ with a very close friend and shared what it means. This particular person sees nothing wrong with the word and said to me, “You don’t have a right to say anything.” You see, the word freakin’ has become politically correct, when the original F_ _ _ Word would not be politically correct and has been too crass for most.
I challenge you to an online search to determine…where did the word freakin’ come from? Note the first four or five entries come right out and show the F_ _ _ word.
This shows how far liberalism has reached into the family and even the church, changing our language from within. The word is a very crude and rude word, but it is known as acceptable.
