While the proper use of words are important to one’s own life and that of one’s family, this post is going to address a larger issue.
This will give an overview of how progressives attempt to capture the upper hand of narratives through the use of words.
The reason this is being addressed is because it is through the use of words that the progressives seek to take down society.
Regardless of how much virtue and character and uprightness you have in your own personal life, so you perhaps feel that this has nothing to do with you, you still are part of society overall. If you do not at least understand the basics of what the progressives do, you can become a pawn in their hands and unwittingly be used against your interests and values.
It is like people who turn their capital over to investment firms only to find out that those investment firms invest contrary to the customer’s own personal beliefs.
Back to the use of words….
It is important not to adopt the words of the left.
In this post, the term progressives is used loosely to cover communists, atheists, modernists, secularists, satanists and those who engage in anti-Christ doctrines…those who attempt to progress society without the standards of the Lord God.
The agenda of these groups is evil. However, they do understand one very significant principle.
The principle they excel in is the diabolical use of words and vocabulary.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
This is not surprising. There are those who are of their father, the devil, and the lusts of their father they will do. He was a murder from the beginning and abode not in the truth.
John 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John 8:45 And because I tell you the truth, ye believe me not.
Recorded in Genesis, the devil’s words to Eve were, “Yea, hath God said?”
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
By casting doubt on the word of God, satan tempted Eve. She listened to wrong words, doubted God, and disobeyed the commandment of God. Adam followed Eve. With disobedience to the commandment of God, sin, sickness and death entered the world. Adam and Eve were banished from the garden of Eden.
That Fall of mankind ultimately has brought us to where we are today.
Mankind did not evolve from the slime. Mankind was created in the image of God and fell through disobedience. If you doubt that, if you believe that all societies prior to today were primitive, then consider this. In some architechtural ruins, there is evidence of high level inventions. How did that happen unless in the beginning mankind was already endowed with great abilities from his Creator, but those abilities were lessened and degraded after the Fall? Mankind lost abilities after the fall in the garden of Eden. It is a matter of de-volution, not evolution.
So words matter. Listening to the right words matters. Following the right words matters.
Jesus is the Word made flesh. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God and the word was with God, the same was in the beginning with God.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
The Word of God, the Bible, gives a primacy to words.
Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Psalm 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
Hebrews 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
Hebrews 2:2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
Hebrews 2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
Revelation 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.
13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, King Of Kings, And Lord Of Lords.
Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Matthew 8:8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
We could go on with many more related scriptures. If you have a chain reference Bible or a concordance, you can find many other scriptures besides the ones listed. The topic of words and the proper use of the tongue is one that is covered over and over in the Bible.
Proverbs 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
One of the topics, one of the words Jesus spoke about, were words of unity.
Jesus prayed for unity. As a matter of fact, he indicated that the unity of believers would be on of the things that would cause the world to believe on Him.
John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
The importance of unity was understood in the Old Testament.
Psalm 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;
3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
All of the above is necessary as a bit of a background for the topic at hand. The topic is how progressives use words to change society and how people who don’t want a progressive society need to understand these tactics and resist them and stand on the offensive against these tactics of the manipulation of words.
Progressives tell you that they want to include everyone…that is, until “everyone” believes something other than the progressive narrative.
The problem is that conservatives or Christians are generally a bit more accepting or kind than progressives. They want to be thought of as “nice” or “not offensive”.
So kinder people, but perhaps people who are ignorant of what is at stake, may adopt the left’s vocabulary. Politicians might adopt it because they don’t want to be ridiculed or talked about in the leftist press. But on an everyday level, people may adopt a vocabulary they really don’t believe in because they don’t want to appear “mean” or don’t want to “offend” or lose a neighbor’s friendship. They want to appear “inclusive” and don’t want to be branded as “non-inclusive” because they might lose likes on Facebook, be branded as a “meanie” or even deplatformed.
There are lots of reasons why people may succumb to the temptation of using wrong words. Ignorance is one of them.
The fact is, it is dangerous to adopt the words of the progressives. It is dangerous to society because it moves the posts and pillars of society. Remember the primacy of words discussed above.
I would go so far as to say it is sin.
“Woman’s choice”. No, actually, it is the murder of a baby.
“Woman’s health care”. Ditto as above.
“Family planning”. Murder of fetuses, of babies.
“Planned parenthood”. Abortion clinics.
“Birthing person”. There is no such thing as a “birthing person”. A person who gives birth can only be a mother, a female, born a female. Not a man. To use the term “birthing person”implies certain things about the person using that term. One of the things it implies is that the person or group using that term denies the truth of the Word of God that honors the Lord God as Creator who created male and female.
“Diversity”. This is a term that is not what it seems to be. The word “diversity” has become a method by which a minority is used with the pretext of serving the interests of the minority, but actually it is not the minority group that is benefitted. Ultimately, a small group, behind the scenes, in power, uses the issue of “diversity” as a way to funnel money and power for their own oligarchial purposes. That money can be used, for example, to pay lots and lots of TV time to advertise for radical candidates, in the name of “diversity”. But these candidates are never as they seem. Looking back, do their words match up with their subsequent actions?
If you doubt this look at all the “wars on” “whatever” that have been touted through the years. Who is richer and has more power? Does the minority group that was touted as being in need end up having a better life or do those who used the issue of diversity or “war” on an unsuspecting population, end up manipulating that topic for their own benefit?
This is why it is dangerous to use their language. They really don’t care about these topics in the way that they say they care about them. It is a form of double speak. These oligarchs and their mouthpieces attempt to convince good-hearted people who live and work at a “working man’s” level of society, that they, the oligarchs, really care about an issue, when they, the oligarchs, don’t. These oligarchs who operate in the background, and their mouthpieces, care about the collapse of western civilization and the bringing in of a total new world order, “a great reset”, as a book by the same name indicates. And through that “Great Reset” which they are pushing for, they hope to attain even greater power and wealth than what they currently have.
Back to words. Don’t let them push you in a corner using their words. They are helpless if you are on the offense and push back. They use domination and various psychological tricks to move the goal post and push society in the direction they want. These rules were written by Saul Alinsky in Rules for Radicals. Saul Alinsky, in his writings, makes mention of Lucifer, which is the name of this creature before the fall from heaven, when it became known as satan.
Once enough of the conversation has been changed and enough people have been brainwashed into the wrong narrative, politicians, afraid of losing their place, are more susceptible to putting in legislation that would not have made any sense 30 years ago, 20 years ago, ten years ago, or even five years ago, but now, politicians are afraid, because their constituents are using the same language as the progressives.
This is why every voice is important. Every voice that refuses to be silenced is important. Every voice that refuses to be brainwashed is important. Every voice that pushes back makes the job of the progressives harder.
Having said all that, I’m going to take this to the next level of some of the next goal posts that I see the progressives attacking. This is not the first time this has been written about recently, but it is good to review what progressives are doing so that they can’t accomplish their purposes.
There is an agenda. The progressives throw out some poison through an article or event. They watch what happens. They see how society reacts. They see if they can use it to weaken society. If it doesn’t work, they try something else.
Their principle is “never let a crisis go to waste” and if they can create a crisis, a ruckus of some sort, they will use that to divide and conquer society if they can.
So this is where I see them going next, and again; other people see this as well. But for those who are unfamiliar with this, you need to know this.
Recently, there have been some agendas to use the war of words against some conservative groups. There have been implications that the use of patriotic symbols implies some kind of radical or terrorist group.
Now the, newest, latest along these lines, in the case of Catholics, is that the use of the rosary implies that these groups who pray the rosary are some kind of radicals. This is a lie about Catholics; Catholics are not radicals for praying the rosary. There was a hit piece written in The Atlantic that implies this.
Whether you do or don’t totally agree with a particular conservative or religious group, do not get on the bandwagon of allowing those words to be words that you adopt.
What goes around, comes around.
Jesus talked about the power of oneness.
Mark 9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part.
Conservative voices form a wide swath through many layers of conservatism, some more active or not, and through various denominations.
If the progressives start going after a denomination that is “not yours”, don’t get on that bandwagon. Because if they eliminate one denomination, the next one they might go after is yours.
They might criticize your group for something else. If they can succeed in picking off one group, then they can freeze and target another group. These are Saul Alinsky’s tactics. Don’t let them draw you into imitating them.
Do not feed into this.
Remember the words of Jesus.
Mark 9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part.
If you don’t understand why another denomination does something a certain way, as long as that denomination is preaching faith in Jesus Christ as the way to salvation, leave it alone.
The oneness of power will come with unity.
Satan knows that. His time is short. And he will use division as an attempt to weaken the body of Christ and conservativies. He will use words to try to cause division within the various members and denominations of the body of Christ. He will drop his poison in certain articles and see if jealousy and hatred can cause division.
That tactic worked in the case of President Trump. It was sad to see someone of obvious talent be fought by so many people. And look where we are today.
A lack of unity will keep the power of God from operating. It doesn’t mean that everyone is exactly the same or works in exactly the same way or even focuses on exactly the same target. But they can work together in a larger sense without fighting one another. They recognize that the enemy is ultimately, satan, and politically, communism and progressivism.
I mentioned this in another post more extensively, but I was in a position to listen to various conservatives talk about how President Trump had “meanie tweets” and so I was told that they wouldn’t vote for him. The “meanie tweet” narrative was started and then some conservatives picked it up. It is a prime example of how this works.
Satan, who comes to steal, kill, and destroyed accomplished those objectives through a “meanie tweet” narrative and voter fraud. There is destroyed economy, a destroyed border, lockdowns, sickness, death, inflation. Satan always comes with soft words. Satan understands that he has to use sly words in order to trick people.
You have to realize there are two influences in the invisible world. One is the Lord God. One is satan who warred against God in the heavens and was thrown down to the earth. And, until satan is thrown into hell and the lake of fire, he roams the earth stealing, killing, and destroying.
John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I [Jesus] am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Revelation 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
Revelation 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Since satan cannot get at God directly, he attacks the object of God’s creation and love, mankind.
Open rebuke is better than secret love.
Tough love…of all the times I have heard “credits” and “thanks” given, I’ve never heard anyone say something along the lines of that he “thanked” the person who gave him drugs, alcohol, or taught him to party. The credit is always given to someone who had some “tough” love and encouraged discipline and the seeking of a higher pathway.
Do not let the progressives again move the goal posts, this time against conservatives and certain denominations, by using progressive poison to spew out words causing division.
Do not let them convince you to use words that destroy society. Do not let them use you to destroy other conservatives or other Christian denominations.
Since publishing this, an article came out that articulated well the lies that have been told about the Ukraine. Since this is another story where lies were put out, where a narrative was put out by the lying media, and many people were encouraged to take up that narrative, the link is published here. It is recommended to scroll down and read the first hand accounts of Ukrainian soldiers.
