It never ceases to amaze me how Isaiah’s prophecy, written around 2700 years ago, is so relevant to the times we live in. Case in point:
The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl [stingy person] said to be bountiful.
In our day the vile person is called ‘liberal’, but Isaiah says the day is coming when that will no longer be so. Dennis Prager has done a masterful job of explaining how the radical Left has misapplied this word to themselves. Watch and see.
Here are some of the key points Dennis Prager makes in his presentation:
True liberals have always been for integration. The Left is for segregation.
True liberals are for more government in general, but against socialism in particular. True liberals have always recognized that free-market capitalism (not corporatism) is the best system for lifting people out of poverty. The Left is for socialism.
True liberals are for the nation-state (any nation). The Left opposes the nation-state and is for globalism.
4. VIEW OF AMERICA
True liberals ever since Thomas Jefferson have always loved America. The Left hates America.
5. FREE SPEECH
This is a big one. Liberals have always believed in free speech. The Left opposes free speech and is doing everything in their power to stifle the speech of people who disagree with them.
6. WESTERN CIVILIZATION
Liberals have always revered western civilization. The Left is either ashamed of or hostile towards western civilization.
Father, protect us from the psychological attacks of the enemy. Fill our hearts and minds with wisdom. Help us to separate the truth from the lies, that we may have the mind of Christ, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
