Political Correctness Detours Us from Biblical Truths, Visiting Scholar Kelly Kullberg Says

NASHVILLE, Tennessee–Socialism is a less loving form of government than one that nurtures human creativity.

Building walls and teaching a nation to rebuild its faith and its culture is sometimes important.

Pansexuality or an anything goes culture shepherds no progress.

You won’t hear these things come out of the mouths of the trendy and the politically correct among us, but they are some of our most important Biblical truths. And the world suffers because it seems to have long forgotten those truths, said Kelly Kullberg with the American Association of Evangelicals.

AAE is a growing and informal coalition of Christian Americans who want to do three things.

One is get back to a Christ-centered Gospel. The second is to explore Biblical worldviews on many issues. The third is to stand up to Gospel opponents.

Kullberg was in Nashville this week and spoke with The Tennessee Star. She is most well-known for starting the Veritas Forum at Harvard University in 1992. Veritas has expanded to more than 200 universities and explores hard questions about the Bible and Jesus Christ.

“Politically correct people need to use their brains and their hearts and think about what causes suffering and what causes flourishing,” Kullberg said.

Before there was a Biblical view of marriage, Kullberg said, there were no moral guidelines.

“A covenant marriage was a breakout of actual progress. Solid families are the building blocks of a flourishing culture and always have been. It’s unloving to demoralize the formation of families,” Kullberg said.

“People were lifted out of poverty, polygamy, disease and loneliness. Children were protected from abuse and trafficking. Pansexuality is actually the old news. We need to take our words back, including love, justice and progress.”

What got us so far off track?

Kullberg blames modern society’s outright denial that sin exists. That, she said, keeps people from coming to repent.

There’s another cause, she said.

“Some of us have traced the decline of the church to the funding of anti-Christian billionaires like George Soros’ open-society foundations and various progressively destructive foundations,” Kullberg said, citing groups who, for instance, protest U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Is society past the point of no return and of going back to Godly principles?

Kullberg paused and chewed that one over a few seconds before she said the following:

“With God all things are possible.”

    Political correctness is a an old canard trotted out when someone takes a position that doesn’t fit your perception, especially if it’s liberal. It’s used when there’s no factual basis in your disagreement. I bet nobody including Kelly knows the origin of the term..
    We need to take our words back, including love, justice and progress.”Yo Kelly Those words are universally used.. another example of Trumpism Make a broad statement and don’t back it up with facts. like Kullberg blames modern society’s outright denial that sin exists. I I’ve never met a person who espoused such a ridiculous idea, She’s making this sh!t up. A sign she has no original ideas she can back up with facts,

    “you’re too evasive”

    You’re reading a little human interest article covering what someone is doing, not a transcript of their speeches. Your criticism is disingenuous.

    While i respect bother her views and faith, as a fellow Christian, with that said, you’re too evasive on what exactly context you hope to rejuvenate Christianity within.
    *Culture*? ..fine.
    *Government* ? .. not.
    You’re completely free and more-than-welcome to be open and recruiting others to your own faith perspective within a cultural space, but American politics is and was intentionally established with a ‘wall of separation between church and state’, and i’m sure you know and have a ready answer to respond to that.
    I’m not an Evangelical nor Fundamentalist Christian, and while i respect that, i also know it is is a mandate in the Evangelical Christian faith to, well, EVANGELIZE. But you cannot and should not try to shoehorn your own particular faith-based perspective on others, or thru the gov. One’s faith’s rights to swing their Bible and faith freely, ends where another’s nose begins.
    (There’s a quote i can’t find from Ben Franklin about extending the freedom of religion for Islam, saying somethiing along the lines of we having to have to accomdate and allow them to speak from tehir pulpits too.)
    Madison; ” The purpose of separation between church and state is to keep forever from these (US) shores, the ceaseless strife that had soaked the soil of Europe with blood for centuries.” “An alliance or coaltion between government and religion cannot be too carefully guarded against.”
    Jefferson:” Erecting the wall of separation between church and state is absolutely essential in a free society.” “Religious institutions that use governmental power in support of themselves and force their views on others of different faiths or no faith, undermines all our civil rights.” “Christianity neither is. nor ever was, part of the common law.
    While i don’t agree with this, here’s Adams’ take:” The would be the best of all possible worlds if there were no religion in it.”
    Reagan:” We establish no religion in this country. We command no worship. We mandate no belief, nor will we ever. Church and state are and must remain separate.”
    On the possible context of *government* you may be addressing :
    And given these truths, that Trump s in no way able to be fairly framed as a “Christian”

      You need to research the real premise behind the separation between church and state. And you also need to read Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:15-18.
