Political correctness kill Knowledge, lessons from Bible

Political correctness often kills knowledge, rather than discuss how it kills first ,let’s learn from Jesus himself.

Luke 2

The Boy Jesus at the Temple

41 Every year Jesus’ parents went to Jerusalem for the Festival of the Passover. 42 When he was twelve years old, they went up to the festival, according to the custom. 43 After the festival was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it.44 Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends. 45 When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him. 46 After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47 Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.”

49 “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”[f] 50 But they did not understand what he was saying to them.

51 Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart.52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.

Now you have read it, I would like you to bring you to this certain part of verse. Multiple lessons can be learned from from one single verse. But this came to my mind. Two verses I would like to bring to your attention.

46 After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. 47 Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers.

Remember how he was sitting among them and was listening and asking questions. There so many cool things that can be learned.

Unlike present day Christians, Jesus was capable of listening and asking questions in a balanced way. As well as found answers to the questions others couldn’t.Most traditional as well as radical Christians either question authority or blindly believe the higher authorities like Pastors or Ministers.He asked questions without fear of man. Remember they were highly educated men. Like PhDs of these days.

So it is important to ask questions and raise doubt’s, as well as wait on the Lord for the right answers.

Matthew 7:7

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.

But being political correctness leads to self deception, as we will see

Matthew  19

16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,

19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

If you read the story, It was very interesting,

16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

See how the rich dude called Jesus Good Master, there are many interesting things to note:

Jesus was considered a prophet among the crowd. As I have provide proof :
  
Mark 8

27 Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?”

28 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah;and still others, one of the prophets.”

29 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

30 Jesus warned them not to tell anyone about him.

But yet he came to him, calling him good teacher. That was odd,what was even odd; why did Jesus correct him?

That brings you to a interesting point. Jesus knew he was putting him down just so he wouldn’t offend the Pharisee and Scribes.
If you have read the bible Pharisee and  Scribes didn’t like Jesus.

Jesus knew the Man was politically correct, and boasted of keeping his commandments. Bringing your attention to the story again.

20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.

22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.

As you have noticed he was greatly depressed when he heard this.
Remember the greatest commandment is Love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul.

But he loved money more,he was deceived because he was entangled in the fear of man.

Proverbs 29:25

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe

Umm..yeah ….that’s about it.😁😁
