Religion vs. Carnality
Politically Correct=Pleasing a standard that was developed by a society. People of the society voluntarily accept a standard that has been placed upon them. It is an unofficial declaration. It is not based on an official absolute, therefore, it is subject to change according to the convenience and pleasures of that particular society
Religion of itself does nothing to change a society. It is not much more than a belief system that regulates its members by the standard of rules interpreted by the members themselves. For the most part it is a moral group that is clean in its lifestyle, but large in its judgement. Thus, allowing a judgmental attitude to be unattractive to those they intend to reach. The religion group in in contrast to political correctness, but does not have the power to make change...The result is two opposed groups in one society. Both claim to bring hope to people's lives, but creates such a stintch in its self righteousness that it is difficult to see the difference. Carnality tends to create a definition that makes sin seem acceptable. Carnal is the word that is used to excuse sin for weakness or convenience It compromises absolute standards to benefit results. In the political correctness & carnality are both in contrast with true Christ-likeness.This is not to say that Christians don't stumble and fail at times but, stumbling and failing are admitted, not justified.
