“The positive always has the advantage over the negative, truth over error, experience over theory, spiritual realities over the isolated facts of time and space.”  [UB 1125:02]

Thought Adjuster: “Much is being said these days about being ‘politically correct’, that is: unoffensive, unbiased, neutral, non-discriminatory, appropriate, non-partisan.  Isn’t it then ironic to witness the display of a much watered down political correctness that is in fact very polarized and partisan?

“Are the promoters of such a political correctness fully adhering to the standards they advocate?  Or, are their underlying intentions to disparage others whose views are dissonant?  What about ‘spiritual correctness’? Shouldn’t it be assigned a much higher priority than political correctness?  Wouldn’t it encompass it as well?

“Your Master Jesus was ‘politically correct’ in all senses of these words, even though He was not politically engaged.  He was a spiritual activist whose undivided allegiance was to promote the Golden Rule of spiritual correctness: “Treat others as you want to be treated”—which naturally includes the “Do No Harm” clause. 

“Indeed, a ‘spiritually correct’ life will promote the integrity of your character and bring forth the many fruits of Spirit.  On the other hand, so-called ‘political correctness’ frequently aims at issuing ‘gag orders’ to weaken the expression of some facets of spiritual allegiance.  It is deemed by some as politically incorrect to wish ‘Merry Christmas’, to have prayers in schools, to affirm the “In God We Trust” foundational affirmation of this country. They claim that all the above are ‘offensive’ to non-believers and resort to guilt and shame to promote their godless agendas that lead to spiritual suicide.

“The kingdoms of earth pass away one by one, 
But the kingdom of heaven remains;
It is built on a rock and the Lord is its King, 
And forever and ever He reigns."

[Hymn by Henry R. Trickett (1840-1909)]
