Today in America, if you stand against the hard left’s new definitions of values and virtue, you will be insulted and falsely accused in the most aggressive way.
The attacks are relentless – accusing conservatives and Christians of being white supremacists, xenophobes, racists, bigots and haters. We’re supposedly now part of the “alt-right,” and the minute you speak biblical principles that stand against their agenda – “You’re one of them!”
Of course, nothing could be further from the truth, but, unfortunately, the horror of Charlottesville provided a spark that lit the fuse of a fomenting fire of false accusations.
But it’s OK – we’ve seen this before, in Scripture and with our dad when we were kids.
As for Scripture, Christ said, “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me” (Matthew 5:11).
