Aggressively Inarticulate

We live in a world where they've stolen my language and twisted it. I want it back and I want it straightened out too. I want truth to mean truth, and light to mean light again.

Just like George Orwell penned in his novel 1984, words have been perverted and deconstructed only to be reconstructed to mean something they don't mean.

War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength

Black is White and White is Black
...but only when "they" say so.

Love used to mean something sacred not sex.

Hate use to have a purposeful but negative connotation not just a word that that people tossed at others because you didn't like their view.

Differing opinions were differing opinions not "hate speech"

Liberal and liberation used to mean freedom not oppression.

Believing in something was conviction and you were willing to stand behind that conviction and back it up with words and actions if need be.

There was only one absolute truth, now everyone is correct.

There was only one truth not a construct of the state or society's leaders, privileged classes, and institutions of power to manipulate the masses.

Laws were based on inalienable rights given to us by God not based on case law and decisions handed down by other judges based in their opinions and their godless capriciousness.

Inclusive meant including someone or something not excluding them because they don't agree with you.

Where sin was called sin not pro-choice, tolerance or an alternative lifestyle.

Where tolerance was a form of forgiveness and not an excuse for ignoring blatantly obvious sin or ignoring people that chose to live immoral lives.

Where diversity was a strength and enriched culture not an excuse to give certain people unfair advantages and the right to discriminate against a host culture or the majority.

Gender was determined by your genes and chromosomes not your opinions or perception of reality or based in a social construct.

That terminologies or words themselves were interpreted not deconstructed. That words themselves have actual and absolute meanings in their context and that there was a single authorial intent when they are/were written not a myriad of possible interpretations by the readers, each one subjecive.

People use to be call men men and women women not human resources.

Where you were sexually promiscuous or sexually immoral not sexually active.

Where criminals were called criminals not behaviorally disadvantaged or societal victims or victims of the system or "the man".

Illegal Aliens were people in a country illegally not Undocumented Workers.

When someone failed a test they actually recieved and "F" not a "Unsatisfactory but Passing" grade or a second chance based on their societal orientation or whether the School Board considered them disadvantaged enough so that they could meet the quota for funding from the Federal government.

Where "new and improved" actually meant something better or bigger not that it was produced or made more cheaply or produced faster by the manufacturer with fancier packaging that said "New and Improved".

While we're on the topic of companies making things. I want "quality" to actually be a quantifiable characteristic of something I buy. I want to be able to see and feel the quality in an item I buy. I do not want it to be a label given to a product by a corporation because the paperwork process and process behind how its made has been streamlined to produce an inferior product and still charge the same price or more.

I want peoples thinking to stop being like this: "I really want you to see it my way but if it really offends you, you do not really have to listen to me and your way is okay too. We're all okay. Are you okay? I feel okay about myself today, I have good self-esteem. Ya know? We don't really need an absolute truth to adhere to as long as we can get along and feel good about ourselves too, right?"

The list goes on but my patience for deliberate disinformation does not. When you cannot pinpoint through terminologies or words what something is or isn't you cannot identify it. If you cannot identify you cannot say with certitude what is right or wrong. If nothing can be determined to be right or wrong than chaos and anarchy ensues.

Isaiah 5:20-22 ~ "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!"

We have become the most aggressively inarticulate generation in history that has emphatically and insistently had nothing to say...and we have been aggressively and ardently inarticulating nothing for a while now. You hear things similar to this now, "That's a lot of words to say nothing" or "he/she is all filler, no substance". The truth is, according to the world I cannot determine the exact date for you that this nonsense started because that would actually require me to produce facts and actually blame someone or a particular generation. We're not about blaming people and fault finding anymore either, are we? There is no one at fault now, is there? There are only victims, no victimizers. Oh! Wait! Unless you consider people like me, the judgmental "meanie" Christian who is simply trying to live to a code that the culture won't allow me to live by because of obtrusive laws that tell me my code is not inclusive enough. I thought living by a code by its very nature WAS EXCLUSIVE! Sorry for not getting the deconsructed meaning of the word "code" or "standard" right---at least its meaning for this year (2011). It'll probably change for next year (2012) and even though my opinion and stance will not have changed and stayed exactly the same, I might actually be right next year? Here's to hoping!

How absurd.

On the opposite side of this...I will issue a challenge.

I challenge you all to speak with the conviction of which you burn with deep inside. Speak truth. Speak like your life depend on it (because it may) and instill in your speech the value which bespeaks the determination of the one speaking or the One speaking through you (God). You are a Christian first and foremost, behave and articulate like you know you can. You will then be a beacon to those whose minds and logic have been deconstructed and confused. One that speaks with authority is rare nowadays and will be like a light in the world of darkness. You may not be welcome but as light, at least you and others like you will be able to see where you are going instead of fumbling and bumbling around in the dark.

Where are the intrepid of our generation that are still willing to 'walk the line' and speak their mind and speak the Truth. Where are the daring souls willing to skate out onto the the thin ice of political correctness and be politically incorrect...because to do so is to tell the truth in love? Have we all turned into a nation of well-thought out but inarticulate or silent cowards?

Speak the Truth, articulate it clearly and speak with authority. The Gospel is offensive to many no matter what we do. Better to just speak the truth and let things fall where they may. I mean, good grief man! Look what Paul finishes off this portion of Scripture with below. After having referred to circumcision, he then says that he wishes they would go the whole way and castrate (emasculate) themselves! Do we suppose Paul was worried about having PC conversation at this point or hurting feelings? Eh...no, I don't think so. Speak sensibly and boldly people!

"You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you.“A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.” I am confident in the Lord that you will take no other view. The one who is throwing you into confusion, whoever that may be, will have to pay the penalty. Brothers and sisters, if I am still preaching circumcision, why am I still being persecuted? In that case the offense of the cross has been abolished. As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!" Galatians 5:7-12
