"Free" speech is not free—it never has been. There will always be those who will do anything they can to prevent a man from expressing his thoughts. After all, free speech is just an extension of thoughts that often come from the heart and not the mind.
A man is never free if they remove from him the right to say what is in his heart. His words don't have to be true or even respectful, but they are HIS words. Proverbs 23:7 says, "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he."
"You are what you think." Wisdom may teach us to be wary of what we speak because our words have a tendency to expose what is in the heart. That is why we must learn to "guard our heart." America was a better place when we taught that to our children.
But free speech has always been costly. "Free" means unbridled and unrestricted. It never meant "without cost." What do you think they meant when they coined the term "those are fightin' words?" Fightin' words certainly aren't free words. They often are spoken with a price.
That's why they killed Jesus. There didn't care what he thought, they cared what He said. His spoken Word carried power. Ours do, as well. We are His witnesses.
That is why the thought police are so active. They know the power of the spoken word. Have you ever wondered why they called them the "thought police" and not the "word" police? They know they can't control your thoughts, but they desperately want to control what you say.
That is what being "politically correct" means; conditioning us to not say what we think! If they silence your thoughts, they silence who you are. If you are a child of God and you speak for God, they are keenly intent on silencing the voice of God.
Don't you get it? Can't you see it? Free "speech" police are everywhere you look. They embrace the homo flag yet hate the Southern flag, and they will do all they can to make sure you agree with them. Their goal is to control you by controlling what you say.
To be silent is comparable to being dead. They shut your mouth and they kill your thoughts. They make you afraid to say anything that they don't approve of. Heck, they even want to tell you which speech is "hate" and which speech is love. Group-think. Common Core. No tolerance or diversity of thought. They determine which speech is free.
Well, that is no way to live.
I truly believe that, unless the Body of Christ overcomes its laryngitis, and soon, the cost of free speech will become unaffordable for most. As it stands, everyone is free to say what they think…except for those who speak the things of the Lord.
YOU are the one I am speaking to. Not your cowardly pastor; he has already shown his stripes…but YOU! When you stand before God you won't be able to blame your pastor for your lack of backbone. You'll stand before him naked and alone. YOU are responsible for your apathy.
Abortion is murder. Homosexuality is sin. Allah is a false God. Politically correct speech is lying. Bruce Jenner is a deviant. Men who have sex with other men aren't gay, they are perverted. Obama may claim to be a Christian, but he is a liar and he serves the Father of Lies. Parents who put their kids in public schools are in sin because they permit their children to be indoctrinated with lies. Evolution is a false religion. Feminism is rebellion against God. Liberalism is a mental illness. Conservatism is counterfeit salt.
Pornography is not free speech. Government is not the highest authority. A "Supreme Court" decision is not a law. All sexual activity is a choice. One is not born homosexual, bi-sexual, asexual, trans-gendered, or pedophilic. Each of those conditions is a mental disorder. Black Americans have a moral problem, not a race problem. The rainbow has been stolen by the perverted. The "homo flag" is far more offensive to most people than the Confederate flag is. Our schools teach the religion of Humanism, and Christians pay for it. The dollar is only paper and is backed by nothing. Pensions will fail. Governments will go broke. Tough times are ahead.
Most pastors are cowardly. The "church" has adopted the agenda of the god-haters. The churches are silent on abortion, homo-sex, shacking up, public education, the covetousness being promoted by the godless government, the threat of Islam, Jade Helm, pornography, the martyrdom of Christians around the world, the overburden of taxation, the glorification of pagan holidays, the truth about the Sabbath, the subjugation of God to government, child theft by CPS, the destruction of fatherhood by family courts and laws, and the promotion of the gospel of health and wealth as the prime focus of Christ's sacrifice.
Most people that you encounter in your everyday life are spiritually lost—including those in your very own church. Regardless of what the ignorant god-haters spew, judging is a good thing if it is done righteously. In fact, judging is a sign of wisdom. America would be stronger if more Christians could judge between right and wrong. Demons are real, and demons influence the actions of people. Most so-called "mental illness" is spiritual in nature. Here's revelation for some: God hates. Let me say that again. God is love…but God hates. We would do well to hate the things that God hates.
Everyone dies—everyone. We will all stand before God and give an account for our foolishness. Your pastor can't save you. The Pope can't save you. Your Grandma can't save you. Calling your sin "legal" won't save you. Making a god in your own image won't save you. The Pope needs to get born again. Global warming is paganism…earth worship. A Jew is as far from heaven as a Muslim is. I am the chief of all sinners, and only the Blood of Jesus saved me from what I deserve.
You may not agree with me. You may think I'm wrong. But this is what I believe in my heart.
I am a free man and I speak what I believe. I don't care what you think about what I think. No man is truly free if he is not free to speak.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
