Are you speaking with boldness or are you all about political correctness?

And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the Word of God with boldness. Acts 4:31 N.K.J.V.


Boldness, parrhesia, Strong’s #3954. Outspokenness, unreserved utterance, freedom of speech, with frankness, candor, cheerful courage, and the opposite of cowardice, timidity, or fear. In this text it speaks of a divine enablement that comes to ordinary and unprofessional people exhibiting spiritual power and authority. It also refers to a clear presentation of the gospel without being ambiguous or unintelligible. Parrhesia is not a human quality but the result of being filled with the Holy Spirit.

    If there was ever a time where Christians needed boldness, it is now. We need to be asking all that we know, “Are you ready?” When they say, “For what?” Lately I’ve been saying: “For the second coming of Jesus.”

    The last two guys I gave this answer to heard me out. One said, “Wasn’t He supposed to come back last year?” The other said, “I think the Bible has mistakes in it.”

    It was a great opportunity to share what I know. Time is short and the days are getting dark.

    Thanks for another great word study, Manny.

    You are spot on Chris. The political correctness mind set is absolutely part of the on-slot plan of the liar. People everywhere are in a fog, not just the world but major parts of the Bride of Christ. “Tell me what to”–or “what are you talking about?” Nobody seems to care enough to turn on their wipers and headlights and slow down enough to get somewhere.

    That is the answer—-share the good news wherever possible. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit who will give divine appointments to witness. Shine the light of the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ to them and displace the fog. On ward Christian soldier.
