Am I a liberal?
Are you a liberal?
If you aren't one, the more you are in the liberal environment you are in the more liberal you will become.
Either you will become more liberal or you will be emotionally destroyed.
Or you will lose your job.
For it is compromise, hide or be destroyed. Those are your options.
I'm sure I don't claim to be all sufficient in my strength, nor do I claim to have all the answers. But honestly, I wish you could hear yourself! That sounds like it's a movie line or something. Am I right?
No I'm not a modern liberal. I'm a classical liberal, in the vein of John Locke and Edmond Burke. I'm sorry if your life is like a movie--mine isn't. I don't depend on my own strength to stay firm in my convictions. I simply use the mind God has given me and exercise it responsibly, which means learning in whatever situation I find myself--be that here in a bastion of secular humanism, or in my church, or pounding in nails on the job. By God's grace, I can trust Him that as I hold fast in my convictions, whether I receive reciprocation or not, nothing can shake my faith or push me from the good path God has ordained.
I would encourage you to take heart and trust in the Lord. Don't put your faith in political leaders--you of all people should know they are not the answer to the world's problems, much less your own.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." Proverbs 3:5.6
