We teach our children tolerance.
We as adults are taught inclusion and how to be politically correct.
Most are so afraid of offending someone that they never STAND UP for truth! WE DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO FEEL HURT OR UPSET, so we never tell the Word of God TRUTH.
We are more concerned about hurting people than betraying the Word of our God.
WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF SHADRACH, MESHACH, AND ABEDNEGO HAD DONE THAT?
Dan. 3:6, and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.
“WELL, I DON’T WANT TO OFFEND THE KING OR HIS FRIENDS SO I WILL BOW WHEN THE TRUMPET SOUNDS.”
Really!!! STAND UP FOR SOMETHING OR YOU WILL FALL FOR ANYTHING.
I am so glad that these three young men stood up and were not politically correct or tolerant of false belief.
Dan. 3:17-18, If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. 18 But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.
THEY WERE INTOLERANT OF THE KING’S WISHES TO BE WORSHIPPED. THEY WERE NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT. THEY WERE NOT ACCEPTED BECAUSE THEY WOULD NOT BOW TO LIES. THEY MADE SOME PEOPLE UPSET. THEY MIGHT HAVE HURT SOME FEELINGS.
They stood up and when they were thrown in the fire…….GOD DELIVERED THEM!
Dan 3:24-25, But suddenly, Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and exclaimed to his advisers, “Didn’t we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?” “Yes, Your Majesty, we certainly did,” they replied. 25 “Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a god!”
STAND UP AND BE COUNTED.
You will end up not being politically correct, or inclusive, or tolerant, but you will STAND FOR THE WORD OF GOD!
