Topic: Bold (emotionally) (08/30/07)

TITLE: Will you be politically incorrect?

Do you ever wonder where the political correctness will end?

Does political correctness ever get in the way of your witnessing for Christ?

Do you keep your mouth shut; act shy about your faith because of a fear of offending someone within earshot?

What would happen if we let go of our inhibitions and let go of views of what others think and simply, straightforwardly shared without restraint the love of Christ with those we come into contact with?

Yes ... they would say that we are politically insensitive to insinuate that there is but one way to Christ.

Yes ... someone might not agree with our views, refuse to listen and walk away offended.

However, more importantly, someone might just come to faith in Christ. A life-changing event that begins with a willing someone that is bold enough to say the hard thing, do the right thing, and live the love thing.

Will you be the politically incorrect one that is bold enough to bring another member into the Family of God?

***

Acts 4:29 (New International Version) Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.

You express your point of view clearly and rationally. Very well done.

I really like how you connected BOLD with witnessing. Boldness for the gospel...you've got an excellent example of being bold. And like your title mentions in todays day and age it's sad that being a Christian is politically incorrect.

Your article inspires one to go against the norm. Very well done.

Some good points to ponder here.

I think it would benefit from some more specific examples of political correctness or incorrectness, and how those influence witnessing.

The exhortation really hits home--I'm a timid sort. Thanks for sharing this!

All I can say is AMEN! Good thoughts to think about and well phrased. Could use a little expanding.

It's difficult to go against the flow, but we should be aware that there are always folks around us who need to hear the good news of the Gospel! hanks for the encouragement to step out and be bold for the Lord.
Loren T. Lowery09/12/07
This is a very relevant message for today's time and you expressed it well. It's a question, I'm sure, all of us have asked ourselves from time to time.
Kristen Hester09/12/07
Good message. We as Christians need to be bold regardless of the world's POV. I would like specific examples to make your message stand out. Perhaps a story of when you were BOLD and did something that was politically incorrect. Keep writing! Good job.

This is a good challenge for all of us who call ourselves "Christisn."
