We could honestly go on and on giving examples of people being cancelled for speaking the truth about what is real, and of people being elevated for speaking untruth about what is real. It has been happening in the news media for a long time. In more recent times we see it prominently happening on social media, as well. For example:
Abortion (Pro-abortion groups don’t consider abortion the killing of a child.)
And we could go on with other examples about race, homosexuality, illegal immigration, drug use, alcohol abuse, police work, judicial process, and many others.
Now it is one thing for people to have disagreements. That has always existed and will continue until Jesus comes again. It is another thing altogether to actively cancel those who stand for what is real.
The fact is:
At this point it would be possible to turn political and talk about free speech, or take a moralistic angle and deal with biblical morality vs. the moral relativism that is currently so prominent in society. But that is not where I am going with this. I actually do have views on those subjects and don’t mind publicly talking about them, but there is something that I believe is even more important. There is an actual way reality is structured and it is not structured any other way. And people who wish to promote points of view that do not reflect reality will ultimately break themselves by doing so. They will break themselves personally as their own lives spiral out of control, and they will break themselves corporately as the world they create crashes in upon them.
The denial of God is one way of denying reality. The promotion of moral relativism is another. The acceptance of political and economic narratives that are based on a belief in the “goodness of man” is still another way. The truth is, God actually exists. He is an objectively real person who has revealed His expectations regarding morality. Beyond that, He has structured reality in a way that only works personally and socially when people adhere to the way that reality is actually structured.
We live in a world, though, that, to a large extent, does not accept reality. As we look around and see riots, wars, political assassinations, a lack of respect for life, no respect for truth, rampant sexual immorality, a denial of biological reality, hatred of those who are not like us, hatred of those who disagree with us, disdain for the rule of law, lack of respect for one’s own body, and the like. And every time we see those things, we are watching acts based on beliefs that are not real – and everyone is paying the price for it.
There is only one way to turn it around. It will require a change of hearts and minds. It will require that Christians begin putting forth more effort to snatch people out of their fantasy existence and share with them the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is only people whose lives have been transformed by entering into a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ who have the understanding and motivation to live in actual reality.
