Are you “woke” making some people broke.. like they’ll choke? Stop it.

If you are dead inside spiritually.. if you are asleep in the dark guess what.. you really do need to be woke up Christ and His sound Gospel message.

How should a Christian view this popular sort of wokeness today?

The Bible teaches that we’ve all sinned and fallen short of God’s holy standards, yet we all long for satisfying fellowship with Him. We all worship someone or something, yet we each were designed to worship acceptably — I mean worship God alone. God will allow no sin (i.e., idolatry, selfishness, unacceptable worship) or even an unforgiven sinner into His holy heaven. He does have some Good News though.. read on.

We’re to be in the world but not of the world. “Woke” is a fairly modern word that has come to mean “conscious of injustice in society.”

A “woke” person is of this corrupt world’s system. A woke person is especially attentive to racial discrimination and all the issues surrounding that. Although the word woke has been closely linked to the rise of the popular yet corrupt Black Lives Matter movement, the term goes far back. Yes, further than that movement. It can be found in the 2008 song “Master Teacher” by Erykah Badu and in an 1962 essay published in the New York Times called “If You’re Woke You Dig It” by William Melvin Kelley.

“Wokeness” is “the most insidious and dangerous and pervasive ideology I have ever seen in all of my life.” ~ Tommy Nelson, pastor of Denton Bible Church

“One aspect of Christian ministry is to protect the flock. Christian leaders are called to look out for various dangers. The New Testament describes God’s people as a flock, and pastors in the role of shepherds. We’re called to “be on guard” for ourselves and for “all the flock the Holy Spirit has appointed” us as overseers, ready to fend off “savage wolves” (Acts 20:28–29). Faithful shepherds should remain alert, ready for battle when wolves invade the field. If militaristic language and battle motifs don’t sit well with you, pastoral ministry won’t sit well with you either. Scripture is clear: there is a time for taking action, defending the faith, and declaring truth in order to protect the flock from error. It’s true that some leaders today seem to love controversy and appear to fight for the sake of fighting. But the problem of pugnacious pastors online doesn’t mean we reject the call to defend the flock. Faithful pastors must be alert to dangers on the horizon.” ~ Trevin Wax

Love.. always protects” 1 Cor. 13:7

What does it mean that love always trusts?

What does it mean that love always perseveres?

What does it mean that love always hopes?

What does the Bible say about real love?

Cancel culture is graceless — woke is way broke!

Wokeness seeks to cancel anything or anyone that doesn’t bow to its ideology. And how is that Christian at all? It isn’t.

How is that a loving type of grace? It’s totally graceless. Where do we see the cancel culture in the Bible? You know most of the 12 Apostles eventually got killed (canceled) for their faith, but they and their (Christ’s) work lives on!

“‘But to keep this Message from spreading any further among the people, we must warn them not to speak to anyone in this name.’ Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John replied, ‘Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to listen to you rather than God. For we cannot stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.’ After further threats they let them go. They could not find a way to punish them, because all the people were glorifying God for what had happened.” Acts 4:18–21

Listen, victimization is self-righteous vengeance.

They often say that Christ and His gospel message aren’t enough, but He really is enough. For anyone.

In the “love chapter,” 1 Corinthians 13, mentions four specific attributes of love that are “always” put into action. The first of these is that love “always protects” (NIV) or “love bears all things” (ESV and NKJV). Americans and others need protection from the cancel culture — from the world’s wokeness.

The Greek word for “protects” is stegei, which literally means “to cover” and includes the idea of protecting and preserving. “Protects” shares something with the other three actions of love in verse 7 (trusts, hopes, and perseveres): and in the original language, all four terms end with the same sound, creating a poetic rhythm and a pleasing phonetic iteration (for memory-sake). Also the four “always” statements in verse 7 use the Greek word panta, which corresponds to another four uses of the same word (translated “all”) in verses 2–3. First, Paul mentions four spiritual gifts used to their utmost:

If I can solve all mysteries..
If I have all knowledge..
If I have all faith..
If I give away all I possess..
..but, he says, if I employ these gifts without love, “I am nothing” (verse 2) and no one benefits.

Then, Paul goes on and provides the missing ingredient, love. See verse 7. This is the counterpoint to verses 2–3, connected by the repetition of panta.

God’s Love..
..always protects
..always trusts
..always hopes
..always perseveres

“God’s type of love protects. That is, it watches out for others. It withstands difficulty. And, if there is a shortcoming or fault in the loved one, love has the ability to cover it (see Proverbs 10:12). Love is not based on selfish desire or even mutual benefit; rather, it seeks the benefit of the other person. Love aims to give rather than receive.

In the Old Testament, God’s protection of Israel was a sign of His love. “Though we are slaves, our God has not deserted us in our bondage. . . . He has granted us new life to rebuild the house of our God and repair its ruins, and he has given us a wall of protection” (Ezra 9:9).

The Psalms also highlight the connection between God’s love and His protection. Psalm 68:5 declares God to be a “father to the fatherless, a defender of widows.” Psalm 91:14 also promises God’s protection of those who love and trust Him.

We find a wonderful example of love’s protective nature in the story of Christ’s birth. When Joseph learned of Mary’s pregnancy, he was faced with a choice: “expose her to public disgrace” or “divorce her quietly” (Matthew 1:19). Joseph, being a righteous man, was planning to keep the matter quiet. In other words, he was covering over what he saw as a fault in Mary, and he protected her from public shame. This is love.

One of the marks of love is that it always seeks to protect the loved one. This doesn’t mean that we excuse wrongdoing or seek to evade the natural consequences of sin; it means that we strengthen what is weak, shield what is vulnerable, and forgive what is provoking.” ~ Got Questions?

Wokeness is merely “hypocritical racism.”

Greed and exploitation are growing themes in our corrupt world system now.

Hey Christian, please keep three things in mind regarding people being “woke”:

  1. Real Christians who want to walk in God’s wisdom must acknowledge that racism in America has resulted in much shame, injustice, and, at some points in history, terrible violence on the streets. Duh, sadly we’ve all seen this happen. Moreover, no clear-thinking person thinks that all remnants of racism were erased by the American civil rights movement of the mid-twentieth century. For as far as we’ve come since the Civil War, there is still work to be done. Lots of smart work to be done in the USA.
  2. Real Christians should also understand that, while laws and legislation guard the principle of equal rights for all Americans legally, no law on the books can change the inner hearts of individuals. Someone who is filled with prejudice and racial hatred will not suddenly be filled with love simply because a new law is passed. Unlike some who pursue change only at the legislative level, Christians know the evil of the human heart (Jeremiah 17:9). Real justice is possible only when individuals have been justified in Christ. Only when we are saved can we live out the mandate “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” in the way taught by Christ (Mark 12:31). Jesus addressed racial divides, among other things, in the parable of the good Samaritan (Luke 10:25–37).
  3. A real Christian must realize that real racial reconciliation in a sound Christian church occurs when we prioritize our identity in Christ over our belonging to a racial category or ethnicity. Members of the body of Christ should feel more at home in their Christian family than even in their own ethnicity:

The Bible says, “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).

Do you need to be rightly awake? It can happen. Need a second chance at life? Today, even right here and now, you can be born of God’s Spirit!

As Christians, we should be spiritually “woke up” into the real life and love of God for our family members in Christ. Let’s show respect and genuine love towards all people. It starts on our knees.

Once we were blind in our sin, but Christians are biblically given new sight, and a righteous (not self-righteous) standing before God, and a new perspective from the Holy Spirit. The Bible says:

“Anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them” (1 John 2:11).

We each should be “woke up” to the light of the true Gospel (2 Corinthians 4:4). Yes, we each should be “woke” to the fact of real temptations in the world (Matthew 26:41).

I admit it. I still have an old fleshly nature inside that tells me to do what it tells me to do. Sure, and I don’t want to listen to my fleshly nature as a believer. I also now have a new nature inside that I want to feed and build up in the word of God. They are contrary to each other.

We believers are reconciled with God and united to Christ (2 Corinthians 5:18), allowing each of us to be truly reconciled with one another too. It’s cuz of Christ’s finished work on the Cross at Calvary that we have a new and living hope inside! Real change and real answers to the problems of racism, injustice, other societal evils are found in the Bible — in God’s written word and in the fantastic peace that He gives when our fellowship with Him is restored. You can have this. Ask.

Why shall we doubt our doubts and opt to believe in what the Bible says? Why do we each need to repent and choose Christ in order to be forgiven and born again spiritually? It’s because sin destroys so much in our world. It’s due to Adam and Eve’s choice that we’ve been born wrong the first time. We were born in sin and each need a new birth from God. Ask and receive. Why put it off? Walk in a freedom you’ve never experienced before!

If we are born in sin, how is it fair for God to judge us for our sin?

Are we all born sinners?

What is the worst sin?

What does the Bible say about white supremacy?

Where did sin come from?

What is the difference between iniquity, sin, and transgression?

Why am I held accountable for my sin when I didn’t ask to be born?

What is the sin nature?

Hey, I’ve got some more questions about sin.

What is imputed sin?

Why do we still sin after salvation?

What does it mean that we are conceived in sin?

So do forgiven people (real Christians) who are spiritually born again..blow it and sin? Yup. Sadly, though they try to avoid sinning, they still do sometimes and yet God forgives. No charge. Believer, when you were “saved” (a Bible term) by faith in Jesus Christ (cuz of His death on the Cross) God has forgiven all of your past, present and future sins.

Is there any sin that God will not forgive?

What is original sin?

What is the new birth?

God indeed loves gay people, yes all sinners, but what does the Bible clearly say about homosexuality?

What does it mean to be born of God?

If Jesus paid the price for our sin, why do we still suffer the consequences of our sin?

Bottom-line. We each need a brand new heart and a new nature in side — that’s the work (God’s greatest miracle that He still does) that Jesus Christ specializes in. Ask Him.

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9 kjv

“The heart is hopelessly dark and deceitful, a puzzle that no one can figure out. But I, God, search the heart and examine the mind. I get to the heart of the human. I get to the root of things. I treat them as they really are, not as they pretend to be.” Jeremiah 17:9 msg

“The heart is the most deceitful thing there is and desperately wicked. No one can really know how bad it is!” Jeremiah 17:9 tlb

“The heart is deceitful above all things And it is extremely sick; who can understand it fully and know its secret motives?” Jeremiah 17:9 amp

“‘Believe me,’ returned Jesus, ‘a man cannot even see the kingdom of God without being born again.’” ~ Jesus, in John 3:3 phillips

Wowza! What a strategy woke BHO has in the USA! Man, please listen to his every word and then you’ll easily reject what he and his many friends (on both sides of the isle) really stand for.

Reminds me of what Theologian Taylor Swift keeps saying: “Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play. And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate!”

A tragic consequence of the fall in the garden is the sin of racism today, which is one way that humans wrongly show partiality. God has never been an elitist. The Bible is so clear that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (yes, one God, three distinct Persons) are kind hearted and holy. They shows no partiality to anyone because it’s not at all in them. Weird favoritism has never been in them. The apostle Paul frequently spoke about this in his letters (See Rom. 2:11, 10:12; Gal. 2:6, Eph. 6:9).

The New Testament demonstrates how every human on the planet if they choose.. can be united and reconciled in Christ Jesus (reborn spiritually) through the Gospel message (Eph. 2:14–18, 2 Cor. 5:16–21). God freely forgives any repentant believing sinner today.

God the Father deeply desires intimate fellowship with you. He acted in sending Jesus so that you (that all of us humans) would hopefully choose to turn and trust His Son Jesus as both Savior and Lord. Yes, He wants this to happen a.s.a.p., sooner rather than later on.. that ultimately, every tribe, tongue, and person of any language be untied in Christ to form the household of God (Eph. 2:19; Rev. 5:9–10, 7:9, 21:3). Not all humans are His Children today (we all of course are His creations), and yet all could be His children if they’d each choose to be in Christ.

“A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Ephesians 6:10–17 nlt

Today many believers and non-believers suffer with some sort of dementia, but none of them shouldn’t be put into office leading the whole nation. Wouldn’t than be called elder-abuse? Uhh.. yes.

“Always keep on praying.” 1 Thessalonians 5:7

Are all people born good.. like our school teaches have taught us?

What does it mean that believers do not continue to sin (1 John 3:6; 5:18)?

Sickness and disease are from man’s sin and I don’t mean that the one suffering is always the one who sinned. Sometimes they are not. Many innocent people suffer from the sins of others. How can a Christian person cope while suffering with a degenerative disease?

Did we all inherit sin from Adam and Eve?

Are all sins equal to God? Is all sin the same?

Can God break the cycle of generational sin? Yes.

Can a person be born with the wrong gender?

Is same-sex attraction a sin?

Could Jesus have sinned (peccability or impeccability)? He didn’t sin.

What is the fleshly nature?

Total depravity — is that even biblical?

How does my personal, private sin affect others?

Why do I face the consequences of Adam’s sin when I did not eat the fruit?

How can I become a child of God?

Is being gay a sin? Is it a sin to be gay?

How can I overcome a habitual sin?

What does it mean to be free from sin?

“I have decided to denounce communism [i.e., Marxism] though I love communists. I don’t find it right to preach the gospel without denouncing communism.” ~Richard Wurmbrand
