How long will I be allowed to remain a Christian?
Fox News ^ | 4-22-18 | Douglas McKinnon

Too many of those who worship at the altar of political correctness have deemed that Christianity should no longer be respected. Rather, they assail it on a regular basis in a coordinated campaign to weaken the faith and its base.

The prevailing view in much of the media is that Christianity is aligned with Republicans, conservatives, or the views of President Trump – and therefore must be diminished and made suspect.

The New Yorker just described the opening of a few Chick-fil-A restaurants in New York City as “Pervasive Christian traditionalism,” and a “Creepy infiltration of New York City.”

In college, they now teach about the evils of “Christian Privilege.” On Broadway and in theaters around the world, mocking Christians has become a massively profitable money-making venture.

In name, on the crucifix, and in art, Jesus Christ is desecrated in the most twisted and obscene of ways. In movies, on television and online, Christians are portrayed in the most dishonest, prejudiced and insulting of ways.

Across the country, Christian colleges are under constant assault from “social justice warriors” seeking to strip their accreditation and put them out of business.

Christian groups on campus are at times being persecuted, their offices and handouts vandalized, with members even being physically assaulted.

A high school football coach is fired for taking a knee in prayer. A teacher is fired for giving a Bible to a student who requested it. A Marine is cursed at and then court-martialed for not removing a Bible verse from her computer. Another Bible verse posted by sailors in a military hospital is labeled “extremism.”

(Skip)

As more and more of the mainstream media, entertainment, academia and the hi-tech world continue to purge or discriminate against Christians, what future job fields will be open to young Christians?

The atheists in America are becoming more and more intolerant. They hate God and so they hate Jesus, the Bible and Christians. They also hate conservatism, with its traditional family values. This is the heart of the growing divide and culture war in the US.

I often wonder how long I will be allowed to be white and Christian?

Christianity is most powerful and grows most successfully when it is bitterly opposed. It is opposed because it stands against the evil of this world. When people come against you for your faith in Christ get excited. You are a witness to the truth.

“[Jesus] shall never be taken away from her” (Luke 10:24).

The world doesn’t define you nor can it ever take Jesus away from you.

I wonder how much longer we will be able to tolerate attacks against our faith? I wonder how much longer we will be able to tolerate being second class citizens in our own country where every deviancy is celebrated?

It’s all okay.

1. Jesus said this is how it would be.

2. Those who believe in Him will be taken care of by Him, even if it gets tough. HE is still in charge and we should carry on KNOWING that.

At General Dynamics, my next to final employer, even innocuous comments on any PC subject could and would be reported to HR. We were informed that we could be written up and “sentenced to diversity training.” (Yep, the HR manager used the word “sentenced.)

At a division that was split off ITT, my final employer, there was a written anti-Christian policy. No one was allowed to speak about Christianity. This included private conversations that might be overheard. Several employees brought in religious items and placed them on their desks or hung them on their walls in protest. I suspect, from conversations I overheard among the top management, that these people were not going to receive raises or promotions as a result.

This political correctness was dictated in military contracts that required “diversity” training. I believe that GD and the ITT spinoff used the same diversity training company. The materials reminded me of Nazi era propaganda posters and the end result was to ban all non-business conversations. At the ITT spinoff (called Excelis) this ban took the form of a contract between the employee and the company where the employee agreed that certain private/overheard conversations were cause for immediate discipline or dismissal.

I agree. Christianity thrives most under persecution.

The forces of militant atheism would be wise to know Christians can also fight a holy war if pushed too far.

Progressives/globalists/neo-marxists in the West have “learned” from the mistakes of their intellectual forbears. They will never come out and propose totally “banning” Christianity or rounding up Christians.

Rather, it will be a continuation of present policies. Step-by-step de facto secularization of all institutions of society, particularly government, which they increasingly control through printed money and debt. A step-by-step de jure tightening of the sphere allowable to “religion.” And finally, the constant social pressure in media and entertainment slandering Christians as bigoted and backward.

Without any change, in a couple more generations, they will have achieved their goal.

I work with several formerly Exelis/ITT guys. Now I know why they look at me oddly when I wear my Veggie-Tales tie.

Exactly.

Persecute us and we become stronger than you can possibly imagine.

Don’t worry. If you have to ask this question, you aren’t really a Christian. You may be “culturally christian”, just going along because it was expected of you, but there cannot have been actual regeneration if you are willing to give it up to make the depraved accept you.

Until the sweet end of eternity - nobody can take it away from you unless you opt to give it up...

They can’t touch free will.

Seems to me this is God’s weapon against them.

As if the world has anything to do with “allowing” a person to be a Christian. A person asking that question doesn’t know what being a Christian is.
