       I don’t know who coined that phrase, but, especially for Christians,  it’s imperative in today’s “woke” culture, we had better wake up, and recognize the difference between free speech, suppressed speech, and compelled speech.   I heard somewhere that he who controls the defining of words holds the power to control what is acceptable and lawful in thought, word, and deed.  At one time in America, not everyone was a Christian, but because the teaching of the Bible was so widespread and revered,  it had a deep influence upon every part of our culture from the level of the individual, to the family, to the highest reaches of our government.  

      While we still have time, Christians need to stand strong against the present decadence and perversion of the deception of being “woke.” If we allow the ideology of the woke culture to prevail as though it were true, the results will be a lawless and godless society in which God is removed by our choice, and man’s opinions will replace God’s truth in our lives.  

         Compelled speech is a radical narrative that is created in order to force all others to agree with it, and it is completely anti God.  In fact,  not only does it require every individual to exchange the truth for a lie, it also requires each person that is controlled by it to deny the truth of the word of God, and even worse, to declare God to be a liar.  How is that you ask?  The following is just a short list of examples of the godlessness of the “woke” path of “compelled” speech vs God’s truth:

1.                              Marriage is the Union of any persons (same sex, and any number of persons joined together) vs Marriage is between a man and a woman, and the two shall become one.

2.                             The gender of a person is defined by what he “feels” vs. God made mankind as male and female (the FACTS of biological science; no matter what you do to the package, the DNA stays the same).          

3.                             Compelled speech vs freedom of speech is meant to quell one’s ability to think for ourselves, out of fear of not being acceptable in the eyes of the world.

4.                             Compelled speech is meant to remove a person’s ability to make his own choices.  It must be believed without descent and includes other radical narratives such as: all white people are oppressors, and people of color are all victims; we must support open boarders for our immigration laws are not “compassionate” enough so we must not comply with laws that are meant to protect our border;  laws to protect and provide safety and security for the citizens of our nation are considered selfish and evil; laws against stealing were created by white angry men and must be ignored, after all smash and grab looting is merely a form of reprimands to the victimized people of color; all of the conventional wisdom held by previous generations must be torn down and replaced; and on and on.  

        Either God and His word is truth, or God is a liar.  Compelled speech intentionally and purposely attempts to confuse, manipulate, and corrupt the word of God.  This WOKE ideology uses fear of being called racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. to control or force people to comply and agree with them.  How sad, for we, as Christians, have forgotten that we “have not been given a spirit of fear, but of faith, love and a sound mind.”  Far better it is to be seen as a bigot in the eyes of the world than to be seen as a bigot in the eyes of God.  Jesus said, I am the WAY, and the TRUTH, and the LIFE. No man comes to the Father except through Me.”  If Christians don’t get the courage to stand up against this Woke “compelled speech”, we shall be complicate in contributing to its success in destroying ourselves as a people and as a country.  Within the Body of Christ, both those who sit in the pews, as well as those who stand in the pulpit, shall be ineffective as the salt and light to stand against the powers of evil, if we do not take a stand to love Jesus enough to obey Him, not out of have to, but out of love to, because He only wants the best for those who trust and believe in Him.  Jesus has told us, “ He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters.”

(Luke 11:23)

      The tactic of using compelled speech to force people to agree with the lies of the devil, is always meant to exalt tolerance, which is the last remaining virtue of every decaying and godless society.  This form of tolerance declares that one must not only put up with the differences between one another, but also accept and deem that difference to be just as right and equally valued and right.  That is not tolerance at all, but is the acceptance of evil as good and good as evil.

      Our culture has become so secularized that it is true to say, sadly, that we have now become a post Christian nation, where both God and His followers are becoming more and more marginalized with every passing day. Of course, this is not a surprise to anyone who reads the Bible.  God has forewarned us: “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

(Matthew 7:13-1




        I ask this question only of that person that claims to believe in Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.  When asked, many will say: Yes, I believe that Jesus was born of a virgin.  Yes, I believe He died on the cross to pay for my sins. Yes, I believe He arose from the dead that I may have salvation through faith in Him.

      What does Jesus say is the proof that you truly love Him with all your mind, heart, and soul?  He’s rather straightforward and clear with His answer.  He tells us:  

“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him,  and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and  the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.

(John 14:23-24)

      Search your heart.  Can you honestly say that, in your daily life, do you truly seek to know Him and to do that which is pleasing in His sight?  Or do you choose, to ignore what He says, and then live your life that is pleasing in your own sight, and ignore His standards of what is good or evil.  Do you really think you are saved that you may live like Hell?  

No wonder The Lord has told us:

“These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”

(Matthew 15:8-9)

    There is a difference in our weakness to sin, and our willingness to think that we can knowingly and purposefully “practice” that which God has plainly told us is sinful. 

      May each of us sincerely ask of the Lord: “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.

(Psalm 139:23-24)


If I choose to live a life of knowingly and purposely “practicing” the sin of lying (or any other sin(s) according to God’s standards), can I truly claim to love the Lord? 

Or am I merely a Cultural Christian, that is a Christian in name only.  

The following verse tells us what Jesus says about those who truly love Him. 

“If you love Me, keep My commandments.

(John 14:15)

None of us are perfect, but if we really love Jesus, we should never think that God’s mercy and grace comes so cheaply that we can claim Him as Savior and Lord, while we purposely allow ourselves to ignore our responsibility to be accountable unto Him.  Woe unto us, if we think we love Jesus, but live our lives in complete opposition to Him and His word.  Perhaps it would be helpful for us to ask the Lord: 

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my thought; And see if there be any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.” 

(Psalm 139: 23-24)


Let us fail not to sorrow unto repentance, confess our sin, ask for forgiveness, and ever strive, with God’s help, to do that which is pleasing unto the Lord.  In Jesus name. Amen



You & I are responsible for our own actions and choices.  Blaming others for what happens to you, or for what you've become is like saying you are a robot, controlled by some outside being. It's a cop out that gives you or I an excuse for never growing up and learning to deal with our own short comings and problems!
