Proverbs 12:6, “The words of ungodly men are crafty; but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them.”
Hosea 6:5, “…I have slain them by the words of my mouth:”
Psalms 12:6, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”
In his book, “1984,” George Orwell warned that in the future words would be redefined and weaponized by the Left in their effort to establish a tyrannical dictatorship where government controlled and engineered group-think and consensus (called “newspeak” in the book) would replace individual thought and creativity.
Despots and dictators have always known that those who control the meaning of words largely control the thoughts, attitudes, and behavior of society.
In fact, the first sin ever committed resulted from God’s Word being twisted, distorted and manipulated when the Serpent (Satan) deceived Eve by making her question God’s clear and unambiguous command not to eat from the tree of Good and Evil.
Here is a partial list of the most common words, terms and phrases that the Left has re-defined, twisted and distorted for the ultimate purpose of deceiving the masses and ultimately controlling them.
Sadly, many self-professing Christians and conservatives frequently use many of these words and phrases and unwittingly perpetuate the deception the distortion of these words and phrases leads to.
The purpose of this article is to list the most common words, terms and phrases as well as their real meanings in context with hopes that, in the future, Christians and conservatives use the proper words and terminology.
Words, indeed, matter.
May we all chose ours carefully.
