17 Feb Politically Correct
S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
When two years had passed, Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus, but because Felix wanted to grant a favor to the Jews, he left Paul in prison.
This Governor of Caesarea, Felix, was a political nightmare for a man like St. Paul. Felix was a politician who wanted people to like him. It didn’t matter to him whether his choices were righteous. He made choices based on his perception as to whether or not they were “Politically Correct.” Did the people like what he was doing? That was the way Felix led. He left Paul in prison when he handed his position to Porcius Festus because he wanted to please the Jews.
We’re living in another season of history where the idea of being “Politically Correct” is driving everything in our society. It’s as if the politicians lick their forefinger and point it to the sky to figure out which way the “Political Winds” are blowing before they decide. And it has infiltrated the Church of Jesus Christ. As of this writing, in the midst of a pandemic, pastors are being thrown out of their pulpits based on political stands they refuse to bring into the pulpit. I, for one, support the presentation of scripture and not of politics in our pulpits. We are called to yield to earthly leaders and pray for them, but we are only called to FOLLOW one man. Jesus Christ the Lord. I just don’t see where Jesus was ever “POLITICALLY CORRECT!”
This AM, I’m signing up again, not as a political activist, but as a Christian soldier unwilling to kill a soul. I’m ready to lay my life down to save souls. Amen
