6-15-2015 Ruling by “Offense”
The late atheist Christopher Hitchens said, “I’m very depressed how in this country you can be told ‘That’s offensive’ as though those two words constitute an argument.” Indeed, minorities rule by simply saying they are “offended” by: God, Jesus Christ, the Bible, Christians, the Church of Christ, or sin. But these are truthfully taught in the Bible. God’s blessings are on those who are not offended by them! Jesus Christ said: “And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me” (Matthew 11:6 NKJV). Jesus condemned Pharisees. “Then His disciples came and said to Him, ‘Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?’ But He answered and said, ‘Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted’” (Matthew 15:12-13 NKJV). Truth cancels someone’s “offense.”
