It’s been some time since the terms Pharisee and Puritan were converted into pejoratives, used to describe a hypocrite and overly judgmental censor respectively. In many cases, these words have been employed against Biblical Christians by secularists to euphemistically represent our views as duplicitous and repressive to the rest of society.
Ironically enough, those very same heralds of human liberty who’ve denounced Christianity’s propensity to enslave (I write this sarcastically), have turned out to be the very same thing they’ve supposedly been fighting all along.
The internet chapter of the social justice warrior club whose specialty is causing unjustified outrage within the confines of social media is our prime example. Consider that the wrongs they usually criticize are nothing more than expressions of opinions – in many instances, opinions based on fact. A microcosm would be a person who disagrees with the pseudo-reality known as transgenderism. Almost immediately said person will be mobbed by the pack of ravenous wolves known as the SJW‘s, demanding that his voice be silenced by the powers at Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms for the sin of causing “violence” to those they simply disagree with.
What ultimately brings joy and consolation to these barbaric inquisitors is if somehow those that differ are excommunicated from public discourse. Notice that their modus operandi is unjust judgment and vilification swiftly followed with oppressive censorship – all things Christians are not called to engage in. Yet these are the very same individuals who claim to be the most tolerating, patient, non-judgmental persons on the face of the earth (as if tolerating evil and not judging with righteous judgment is morally correct). Aside from their rank hypocrisy and repressive inclinations, they don’t seem to notice their penchant for sanctimony (or, as some call it, virtue-signaling).
I think it behooves Biblical Christians to highlight this dissembling when confronted by a duplicitous SJW in order to defend themselves and the Gospel from derision. What could irritate an SJW more than asking rhetorically and sarcastically, “How does it feel to become a mirror image of me?”
Undoubtedly, they’ll respond in an indignant manner, claiming they are nothing like Christians. That is all the opening the believer needs to highlight the stark differences.
