Righteous Indignation Is Biblical

 

My good friend Steve over at Cry and Howl has two posts up regarding how crazy the liberal mind works. In the second post, he rants (and I love his rants!) about how Liberals are such panty-waist freaks. That post was in  reaction to Child sexual identity justice finally arrives for a murderer.

Some definitions:

World English Dictionary

righteous (ˈraɪtʃəs)

— adj
1. a. characterized by, proceeding from, or in accordance with accepted standards of morality, justice, or uprightness; virtuous: a righteous man
b. ( as collective noun ; preceded by the ): the righteous
2. morally justifiable or right, esp from one’s own point of view: righteous indignation

in·dig·na·tion [in-dig-ney-shuhn] Show IPA

noun
strong displeasure at something considered unjust, offensive, insulting, or base; righteous anger.

Origin:
1325–75; Middle English indignacio ( u ) n < Latin indignātiōn- (stem of indignātiō ), equivalent to indignāt ( us ) past participle of indignārī to be indignant, take offense + -iōn- -ion; see indignant

Righteous indignation used to be considered a virtuous standard of morality. However, “political correctness” and the twisted use of the term “discrimination,” (which includes the aberrant overuse of cries of “racism”) unfairly causes people who disagree with the onslaught of evil and sinful moral “values” being inculcated into our children’s minds and society in general – to be silenced.

For example.

There is a new commercial out that is comparing the “wholesomeness” of a cracker to “celebrates” two men raising a child. At the end of it, the claim is made that everything in the commercial is “wholesome.” Wholesome to whom? Certainly not to God! He made them male and female. And, marriage has always been defined as the union of one man and one woman. What’s more, Christians who agree with God’s Word on such issues are labeled as anything but wholesome. They are called bigots, homophobes, racists…you name it!

Where is the tolerance in that?

Well, the leftists are trying to make deeply held biblical Christian beliefs a crime. Unfortunately, their loud, one-sided media blitzkrieg on such issues is making Christian thought, beliefs, and moral practice the one “politically correct” target for hate, discrimination, bigotry, silencing, and punishment.

Christians are not surprised.

The Bible warns us in books like Revelation, Jude, and others, that such evil being called “good” by the unrepentant mass of humanity will increase the closer we get to the end times. But that is a topic for another post.

When you read the content of Steve’s posts, you will understand why such  negative labels presented by him (as well as many more descriptions of evil) would apply.

Excerpt from second post:

To my Christian readers, I apologize for the unsavory language, but sometimes “darn” and “heck” does not cut it.

You know something folks, I’m so sick of pussies ie liberals who cannot take the same crap they dish out. Their little panties get in a wad acting so offended, crying like the little bitches they are when their freakish mind-set is pointed out. This morning I made a comment in my post, A Child’s Sexual Identity … Justice finally arrives for murdered teen, which was, To liberals only the innocent in the womb and new born children are worthy of death. “I can’t believe he said that!” says the liberals. I made that statement because it happens to be the absolute truth. During the Kermit Gosnell trial there were horrific pictures of fully developed babies who had their spinal cords snipped by Mr. Gosnell and then just thrown into the trash. Liberals commented saying “Women need these kinds of services.” The babies damn sure didn’t. Yet now that their dementia is highlighted at Cry and Howl with the above statement by me, liberals are aghast saying I have a tortured mind saying such a thing. Tell me who’s tortured … a person who can see a fully developed, viable baby chopped up and thrown in the trash and say … “women need this” or me by my saying “to liberals only the innocent in the womb and new born children are worthy of death?” I might be tortured, but it’s by the stunning callousness and sick perverse minds inhabiting the every day liberal.

Steve is absolutely correct in his descriptions!  The callousness and sick perverted minds that would allow for the murder of babies in (or out) of the womb is unconscionable!

God’s Word contains many admonitions about “calling evil “good,” and good, “evil.”  And, what did Jesus say about harming the little children?

Mat 18:6

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Mar 9:42

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.

Luk 17:2

“It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

 

Recall that when Jesus was born at the Incarnation, the king ordered that all 2 year olds and under in the area should be killed.

Why?

Because that earthly king didn’t want another King, imposing upon his reign.  Therefore, his evil mindset caused him to  want the eternal King, Lord of Lords, Son of God, and Savior to be destroyed.

Some non-believers might claim that Christ was destroyed, years later, at the crucifixion. But Christians know better.  The purpose of that universal act was not just physical, but spiritual, and took away the consequences of sin, evil, and death for the souls of mankind who repent and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

My comment there:

As one of your Christian readers, I must admit that your “colorful” language actually makes me laugh! In my view, taking the Lord’s name in vain, the f word, c word – well, you know the really crude stuff that often gets tossed around – is much more serious and really bothers me. I can’t stand watching any movies that utilize such language, so I stick to the Hallmark Channel and movies that are Christian themed; as well as movies that have redemptive value and are uplifting.

Sometimes the truth hurts – and in this case, the truth is that the liberal mindset is not only hurtful, harmful,  and despicable, but evil and deadly as well.

It amazes me that the Hollyweird crowd won’t wear fur because it comes from the hide of an animal, but they wholeheartedly support abortion that kills a helpless child in the womb…going so far as to approve of  a partial birth abortion method that delivers a child outside the womb, then gruesomely kills the baby.

As you expressed in your excellent post, God in HIs Word says, “Woe to those who call evil “good”, and good “evil.”

Therefore, why shouldn’t Christians take a stand and say WHOA to stop such evil practices?

Let’s take that “woe” verse and include the following:

Isa 5:20

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isa 5:21

Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!

 

Isa 5:22

Woe to men mighty at drinking wine,
Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,

 

Isa 5:23

Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away justice from the righteous man!

 

Isa 5:24

Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble,
And the flame consumes the chaff,
So their root will be as rottenness,
And their blossom will ascend like dust;
Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts,
And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

 

I would like to add that reprobate and degenerate minds cannot be fixed without confession and repentance at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ.

In a previous post at my former blog (included in link above), I wrote:

I am a sinner, too. Similarly, I could list all of my former heterosexual sins that required my confession and repentance. I can say that I would never EVER want to return to the way I once conducted my life in the past. But I have to tell all of you that it wasn’t in my own power that this happened. Ask any Christian whether or not they were able to leave their former life of sin (ANY sin) and I think you will find that they will most often say something similar to:

Only after being born again in Jesus Christ did His power, (through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and my (our) love for Jesus Christ) enable my (our) flesh to be “crucified” and my (our) spirit(s) to DESIRE to follow Christ and keep his commandments.

Yes. No one is perfect and sinful choices can still tempt us and we can backslide and succumb to them. We have seen many a Christian believer (especially those in the public arena) do just that. But they realize the wrong they have done and turn back to Christ. They realize that their actions were a result of the flesh and because they did not “retain the knowledge of God” at that very moment where they succumbed to a sin. Not allowing the Holy Spirit to guide them at that moment can lead to backsliding. However, backsliding is not the same thing as willful sinning!

Those who willfully continue to sin and haven’t completely given themselves over to Christ are in danger of being told by Christ, “Go away, you evil doers, I never knew you!”

This is what is at stake my friends.

Unfortunately, those who don’t want to hear it – or believe it – will resist, at all costs, any admonition by anyone regarding what is necessary to repent, be saved by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and reconciled back unto God.

This is why it is often futile to try to reach such individuals. In some cases, God has “given them over” to a reprobate mind.

However, don’t take my word for it. Read God’s Word:

Rom 2:1

Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.

Rom 2:2

But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.

Rom 2:3

And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God?

Rom 2:4

Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

Rom 2:5

But in accordance with your hardness and your impenitent heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,

Rom 2:6

who “will render to each one according to his deeds”: [fn]

Rom 2:7

eternal life to those who by patient continuance in doing good seek for glory, honor, and immortality;

Rom 2:8

but to those who are self-seeking and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness—indignation and wrath,

Rom 2:9

tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek;

Rom 2:10

but glory, honor, and peace to everyone who works what is good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

Rom 2:11

For there is no partiality with God.

    Wow! You’ve done a great job at breaking things down Christine! Yes, “reprobate” is a perfect word to describe those who not only defy God, but those who make Him like unto them. It disgust me when liberals use God’s to in the attempt to back up their ridiculous claims.
    I love your testimony … (oh that God would continue His mercy upon me!) and admire your continued stand for God. Amazing!

    Hi Steve!

    Thank you for your very kind comment!

    I think it is important to lift up and support what our fellow Christian believers are writing.

    Scripture has a way of overcoming the lies of those caught in reprobation against God. All we can do is share the truth and hope that the Holy Spirit will grab some of those being swallowed up by evil and take them “out of the fire” towards salvation in Christ.

    Jude 1:23

    but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, [fn] hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.
