Now I could go on because as I said this whole "let's not be judgemental" thing has bothered me for quite some time. It is just one more catch phrase in the book of Political Correctness or as I like to call it "Political Convenience".
What I am going to do is send you over to Abbot Joseph at Word Incarnate. There you can read his very intelligent post On Truth and Judging~Pt. 1. He does a far better job of explaining this calmly and rationally; me, I would probably end up on one of my soapboxes.
This topic has so much relevance for the time in which we now live. Our culture wants no part of objective truth; absolute right and wrong. We live in a "if it feels right to you then think it, say it, do it!" And well you can see where that has gotten us...
So click the link and read Abbot Joseph's excellent post and stay tuned for Part 2. I will put it in my Worth The Time box on my sidebar when he posts it.
Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King
My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.
Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
