As political correctness continues to infiltrate the church, it’s worth noting there are no examples of political correctness to draw from in the Bible. To the contrary, Scripture and church history are filled with men and women who stood for gospel purity in exceedingly adverse situations. The Bible calls us to contend for the faith (Jude 1:3) against those who would corrupt or compromise it. Why? Because future generations are at stake (Galatians 2:5). Because souls – yours, mine, and those around us are in the balance (1 Timothy 4:16). Because gospel truth, when undermined, will shipwreck your faith (1 Timothy 1:19) and destroy entire families (Titus 1:11). And finally, the message of the Cross, which is salvation through faith in Christ alone is utterly subverted when we make peace with the very falsehoods that sent Jesus to the cross. Here’s a clip from Ed Moore, Senior Pastor at North Shore Baptist Church, on the importance of contending for the faith. If you would like to hear the sermon in its entirety, click here.
