Look!...New Age McCarthyites!

"The church is safe from vicious persecution at the hands of the secularist, as educated people have finished with stake-burning circuses and torture racks. No martyr's blood is shed in the secular west so long as the church knows her place and remains quietly at peace on her modern reservation. Let the babes pray and sing and read their Bibles, continuing steadfastly in their intellectual retardation; the church's extinction won't come by sword or pillory, but by the quiet death of irrelevance. But let the church step off the reservation, let her penetrate once more the culture of the day and the...face of secularism will change from a benign smile to a savage snarl."

-- (R.C. Sproul, John Gerstner, Arthur Lindsley, (“Classical Apologetics: A Rational Defense of the Christian Faith”)

Look!...New Age McCarthyites!

 

Liberal Hollywood's offended,

By the truth (God’s Holy Word...)

Indeed, Tinsel Town’s not happy

When the Gospel's being heard.

 

Yes, they’ve got their own Agenda…

Humanism’s Master Plan.

(Ahhh… recycled paganism!)

Listen to their Ten Commands….

 

“Keep ‘em on the reservation,

In the back woods, on the farms!”

“Keep the ‘children’ isolated

So they can’t do any harm!”

 

“Keep their “Good Book” banned in Boston,

Denigrated in L.A...

Keep it quarantined from Gotham,

Drown it out in 'Frisco’s Bay."

 

Let ‘em know who runs the culture…

Keep ‘em out, and lock the door!

Keep the faith in Evolution!

We’re the ones we’ve waited for!

Yes, the Glitterati’s snarling,

In their sequined gowns and tights.

(Who could ever have imagined!?

Look!...New Age McCarthyites!)

Listen closely to their growling....

There's no reason to be stunned,

There’s a simple explanation.

Read John 15: 21.

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember the words I spoke to you: 'No servant is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the One who sent me."

(John 15: 18-21)

"Do not be surprised, brothers, if the world hates you."
