THE EVIL OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS — PART 4

What were the first three posts in this series on the vile nature of political corectness?

In Part 1, we considered examples of political correctness. In Part 2, we looked at the importance of the proper instruction of our young people. In Part 3 we examined the meaning of political correctness. What is the topic of this post?

What Is The Relationship Between Political Correctness And Sin

Why is politics more difficult than Physics? Consider the definition of “politics/”

politics, noun
UK /ˈpɒl.ə.tɪks/ US /ˈpɑː.lə.tɪks/

:the activities of the government, members of law-making organizations, or people who try to influence the way a country is governed

POLITICS | meaning in the Cambridge English Dictionary

Politics is about using the power of government to make us do things even when we don’t want to do what government officials want us to do. Because we need a government to protect us from EACH OTHER, We the People give government officials great power. That power is alway ripe for abuse, and politics is difficult because it is difficult to keep us, We the People, from abusing power.

Every Communist must grasp the truth; “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”

Quotations from Mao Tse Tung — Chapter 5 (marxists.org)

Political Correctness is a tool for demonizing our opponents. We demonize our opponents so we have an excuse to shoot them. We demonize our political opponents so that we have an excuse to deny our opponents their rights. We demonize our opponents so we can enslave them in service of our own personal beliefs and wants. What is our basic argument? My side is good. Your side is evil. Therefore, James Madison, the father of our Constitution observed the following.

But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. — James Madison

The Federalist Papers by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison (The Federalist No. 51, gutenberg.org)

You say that cannot be true, that mankind is basically good? Are we innately good? Is that the lesson of our history?

What is good and what is evil? Without God, the definition looks like this.

Definition of Good and Evil: Good is what you like. Evil is what you don’t like. — Anton Szandor LaVey

Anton LaVey – Wikiquote

Don’t think so? Consider what an “expert,” a psychologist, suggests.

‘Good’ means a lack of self-centredness. It means the ability to empathize with other people, to feel compassion for them, and to put their needs before your own.

….

‘Evil’ people are those who are unable to empathize with others. As a result, their own needs and desires are of paramount importance. They are selfish, self-absorbed, and narcissistic. 

The Real Meaning of ‘Good’ and ‘Evil’ | Psychology Today

Where do these definitions from the field of Psychology lead us? Evil is just a pathology.

 ‘Evil’ is an aberration, a form of pathology, as the psychopathic personality shows, which only emerges when we are broken off into disconnected fragments.

The Real Meaning of ‘Good’ and ‘Evil’ | Psychology Today

Are those possessed by the pathology of evil politically incorrect? Are the good politically correct? Doesn’t that make political correctness whatever we want to use to define the difference between good and evil? What would be evil to someone like Hitler, Stalin, or Mao? Would evil be the refusal to be joined and obedient to the great collective body of the people they controlled?

We don’t like those who oppose us. So, it does not take much to persuade us to destroy our opponents, but political correctness — demonizing our opponents — involves a fundamental denial of history. When we demonize people just for disagreeing with us, when we call ourselves good and someone else evil, we deny the truth of history.

History is the story of mankind. Because mankind is not good, history presents us with much unpleasantness. Don’t agree? Then consider what the Bible — which contains much history — tells us about ourselves.

Jeremiah 17:9 New American Standard Bible

The heart is more deceitful than all else

And is desperately sick;

Who can understand it?

When Jesus argued with the Pharisees, He told them a parable to show them that their dietary habits did not address their spiritual sickness, that what we eat does not make us evil. Confused, Jesus’ disciples asked for an explanation.

Matthew 15:15-20 New American Standard Bible

15 Peter said to Him, “Explain the parable to us.” 16 Jesus said, “Are you also still lacking in understanding? 17 Do you not understand that everything that goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and is eliminated? 18 But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart, and those things defile the person. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, acts of adultery, other immoral sexual acts, thefts, false testimonies, and slanderous statements. 20 These are the things that defile the person; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile the person.”

All of us are spiritually sick. Because all of us have hearts which are capable of leading us into sin, Science does not have a solution. That is why this passage describes all of us to some degree.

James 4:1-3 New American Standard Bible

4 What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is the source not your pleasures that wage war in your body’s parts? You lust and do not have, so you commit murder. And you are envious and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask with the wrong motives, so that you may spend what you request on your pleasures.

What is required for sin? To sin, we must first believe a lie, that the sin we would commit is not actually wrong. To steal, we must believe that it is okay to take what we want. To commit adultery, we must convince ourselves that sex is “free.” To murder, we must convince our self that our victim deserves to die. To lie to ourselves and others — to acquiesce to political correctness — we must believe the truth does not matter.

Ecclesiastes 7:29 New American Standard Bible

Behold, I have found only this, that God made people upright, but they have sought out many schemes.

How does it work? How are we persuaded to believe a lie? Why do we sin? Using the first sin as an example, that sin committed by Adam and Eve, Charles F. Stanley explains in TEMPTATION AND TACTICS how believing a lie leads to sin.

Satan’s deception is progressive in nature.

Doubt. First of all, he led Eve to question God’s word.

Denial. Doubt leads to the denial of truth.

Deception. Once we deny the truth of God’s Word, we are headed for full blown deception regarding His nature and commands.

Disobedience. Next, we do what God has forbidden because we don’t believe Him.

Destruction. Finally, we suffer the destructive consequences of sin because of our disobedience.

TEMPTATION AND TACTICS (intouch.org)

Political correctness is a tool the more devious (those who have already deceived themselves) happily use to create doubt. That doubt leads us into denial and self-deception. Once we have been deceived, then those who lead make us into their tools. We can then rationalize OUR disobedience to God and OUR sin. OUR demonization of OUR enemies gives us an excuse to abuse OUR enemies. OUR sin eventually leads us into OUR self-destruction.

Why does political correctness work? Sin is attractive. When we love our sin instead of God, we idolize that sin. We allow our idol to enslave us, but we are not as gullible as some would like to believe. We choose to believe lies. That is, our ignorance of the truth is willful. And what is key? We refuse to anticipate the inevitable consequences of our sin.

Need a good example? Read the story of David and Bathsheba, 2 Samuel 11-12 NASB – Bathsheba, David’s Great Sin – Then – Bible Gateway. When David should have been in the field, leading his army, he relaxed in his palace. Bored, when he saw a beautiful woman, he lusted for her. When he feared being caught in adultery, he killed a man who trusted him. Evil? Yes. Yet only those who refuse to examine their own hearts would call David evil and themselves good.

  1. Tom,
    Great message. For those who still have a problem discerning how political correctness has been developing in the USA over time, I recommend you read Michael’s post today titled: What are the Devils (evil) Strategy.
    His post gives a lot of clues how to discern our contemporary times.
    All resulted from beliefs now in progress as a result of our government leaders, (judges, legislators, lawyers) to be politically correct in one way or another, or best “strategy: for the USA.
