Conservatives – both in politics and in Christianity – have upheld absolute morality for quite some time. Unfortunately, as of late, they’ve been slowly acting postmodern. The political conservatives are bending to public opinion polls, saying, “Well if we don’t do these certain things, people won’t vote for us.” Thus, they caved in, started supporting liberal ideology…and aside from failing to live up to their promise to true conservatives for ten years, lost the election last cycle.
Conservative Christians are starting to say that they need to tone down certain messages in Christianity because if they don’t, people won’t come to church. They’ve begun to water these messages down and all we’ve seen is an increase of immorality, emptiness, and pointlessness in the Church…all the while the numbers have been declining.
This is because they have forgotten one simple rule: Truth is immortal. If what you are supporting is truthful, if it is virtuous, then all the opinion polls, the demographics, and pressure have nothing to do with determining how you should act on the truth. If it is truthful, if it is good, then it is to be followed no matter what.
