Eight Logical Fallacies Commonly Used By Politically Correct People

It's important to know the logical fallacies involved in promoting the sin of political correctness. It's a weapon designed to silence people whose arguments CANNOT be refuted. So what are some of the fallacies used in political correctness? Here are eight commonly used weapons to promote the stupidity of being politically correct:

1.) Ad Hominem 

In the quest to silence Christians, it's a very common tactic to say that if a person is a Christian then you shouldn't listen to that person. More of then than not, Christians are labeled to be wrong simply because they are Christians. This would mean discrediting any facts and figures Christians may share with the public.

2.) Appeal to tradition

It's very common to appeal to tradition to justify sinful practices. Let's just say it becomes politically incorrect to tell Muslims that they're not saved because they have sprang out from several generations of Islam. This may also say that as long as it's done for several generations then it must be correct. One way to refute it is to say that maybe they should accept human sacrifice since it's been done for several generations.

3.) Argument from silence

It's very easy to say that silence means yes. But it doesn't always mean yes because the person may be hesitant to say no. Sometimes a person refuses to debater because it's no use arguing with a person who never listens. It's better not to argue with a foolish person as such people can beat the smart people with their experience.

4.) Guilt by association

It can be as stupid as since Christians hate homosexuality and the ISIS hate homosexuality therefore hating homosexuality is evil. This is one of the easiest ways to make an argument. What's often ignored is that the moral standards are not other people. One good way to refute this argument is by saying something like that the late John Paul II loves chocolate but that doesn't make eating chocolate wrong.

5.) Non sequitur

There's always the assumption that disagreement automatically equals hate. One good example is how homosexuals got mad that Christians don't condone to their wrongdoings and called them as pretentious hypocrites for sending aid after the homosexual night club attack by an ISIS member.

6.) Poisoning the well

False accusation is a very common ground to discredit people. They may produce fake evidence or use people's love for gossip to destroy the Christian's reputation. It's already expected as Matthew 5:10-12 already warn that Christians will be hated by the world. On the other hand, blessed indeed are Christians who are wrongfully persecuted for the cause of Christ.

7.) Special pleading 

This is another term for double standard. One of the worst tactics is to call Christians as haters for simply refusing to bake a cake for a homosexual couple. On the other hand, they may even invite a statesman from a Muslim country who says homosexuals should be massacred to speak in a secular university. They simply give everyone rights but Christians.

8.) Straw man argument

Many times, politically correct people always say that they've won arguments even when they haven't. They may set up imaginary debates or imaginary victories. One of their favorite tactics may be that when a person walks away from the argument that they assume they've won.

Pastor Robert Kent Jesalva Evangelizing to Manny Pacquiao

Apparently Manny Pacquiao has already received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.  Here is a picture of Pastor Robert Kent Jesalva evangelizing Manny Pacquiao to the Lord.  Now pray that his was a real conversion and that his family will follow too.  Now looks like the Vatican has lost another faithful ally... pray that the Lord will lead Pacquiao's life to a different direction.  I just hope though our churches will continue the type of preaching that Pastor Ray Comfort carries out namely the use of the Law in preaching.

Let's just pray that if Pacquiao had a false conversion, it would be a real one as Paul Washer would repeatedly warn, "The only evidence of eternal security is continued fellowship."  True Christians will definitely continue to receive trials as life goes by to continue assuring them this that their conversion was real and to cure all doubts that they possess salvation and can't lose it.

What's Wrong with the Ang Dating Daan Movement?

The Ang Dating Daan movement is by the Members Church of God International spearheaded by its pastor (and so-called "prophet") Eliseo Soriano.  While claiming to be an expositor of the Scriptures with his "Itanong Mo Kay Soriano" or "Ask Soriano" In English, this religious group actually isn't Christian as some of the ignorant would want to believe.  Though the group claims the Bible is their only authority (as some cults do) but the problem is that they believe only Eli Soriano may interpret the Scriptures.  This is utter heresy!  Not even a great man in the Scriptures, Charles Spurgeon ever made such a preposterous claim!  This is no better than the "true church" movement by Darwin Fish which is exposed by Pastor Phil Johnson as a heretical movement.  In fact, I'm not going to waste my time debating with ADD members, they are a total waste of my time as every other debate.
Unlike John F. Macarthur of Grace to You that actually encoura…

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

Politically Correct People Tend to Think That They Have the Right to Offend Others But Not to be Offended By Others

Politically correct people have this new problem where they tend to think they have the right to offend others while they have the right not to be offended by others. What examples can be pointed out with politically correct people's demands that they can offend others while having the right not to be offended? Here's a few examples that could be enumerated and observed daily with how hypocritical politically people can get:

Feminists get offensive with their so-called "women's rights" but when somebody criticizes them regardless of gender then they tend to go on a full outburst. They get mad when a man hits a woman but think it's okay for a woman to hit a man that is unless if it's the frustrated housewife who slaps her husband for constant infidelity.The LGBT Community of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders insist that people should accept their homosexuality as "normal", it's okay for them to post hate comments against Christianity …

Testimony of Former Iglesia Ni Cristo Member, Now a Born Again Christian

Editor's note: 
First and foremost, I would like to thank the Bereans for this wonderful story of a former Iglesia ni Cristo minister (or pastor), now he has become a Baptist Christian.  It's a sad story that some people have just jumped from one cult to another.  Some members of the Watchtower Society, Charismatic Movement or the Iglesia ni Cristo have left Roman Catholicism but they have never truly come to know the truth of salvation is by faith in Christ alone and that any good works after Christian life is but the grace of God at work in the believer.  Now for this brave testimony that I can really share after many years of searching for one testimony which I hope will further bring more INC members to Jesus Christ.

May I begin with a word of prayer that in the midst of all these trouble, I call upon Jesus Christ the Son of God who the Iglesia ni Cristo deny is indeed God, the only way to salvation, that they trust upon their works and church membership than Him alone.  I…

The Idea Homosexuality Harms No One is a Huge Lie From the Pits of Hell!

Homosexuals have their tendency to say that if I am not affected by what they do personally then I should just shut up and leave them alone.  They say that they are just a "normal loving couple" and that their activities are "perfectly safe".  They may be able to deceive the public with false statistics but God cannot be fooled.  I can be fooled, I can fall into doubt but my God is greater than all my weaknesses.  The picture above this paragraph shows some facts from Christian Apologetics Research Ministries on some documented research on how homosexuality harms those who practice it.
A lot of painful facts really need to be addressed when it comes to homosexual activities.  Every sin has its consequence that is why God hates sin.  God hates sin because of the harm it brings.  God is not trying to be a cosmic killjoy when He forbids homosexuality because He knows the consequences it will bring to those who practice it.  Instead, He is doing so in order to protect…

Difference Between A "Good Person" (By Worldly Standards) and a Righteous Person

Romans 5:7-8 says, "For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  So where is the difference between a "good person" and a righteous person?  There is God's measuring stick vs. man's measuring stick.  Being a "good person" is when a person is compared to the others.  Let's say they compare "Mr. Nice Guy" with the likes of corrupt politicians.  To worldly standards he is a "good person" because he tries to do what is right (by his own flesh).  They are only good according to the worldly standards.  Many may be better than the other like for example, Mr. Nice Guy may treat everybody well.  However here's the real issue with God there is NO such thing as a good person as Romans 3:12 says, "There is NONE that doeth good, no not one." which goes together wit…
