Question: Don’t You Think You Can Be Little Bit More Civil In Your Approach?

 

Donald Bohanon: I’m not here to appease anyone, or to behave in a way that you want me to behave, or convey a message that you or anyone else wants me to convey.I’m not here to say what you or anyone else wants me to say,or say what makes you happy.

 

In terms of supporting and justifying evil, perversion and wrong doing. Or keeping silent in the face of it.I’m here to speak the truth as I’m instructed by God, and if it  comes across a little rough at times, if God is okay with it, I don’t have a problem with it either.

 

I try to carefully compare what I convey, what I say, with what’s outlined in God’s word. Because his opinion is the only one that really matters to me.I could care less what a celebrity,politician, activist,professor,doctor,false minister,or any professional or common person,etc, thinks about what I say,the content of what I say,or how I say it.I’m not impressed by titles, academic accomplishment or achievement, celebrity and or another persons  personal gain,it means nothing to me,and more importantly it means even less to God.

 

Being politically correct is what got us into this mess now, in terms of the promotion,support and legalization of perverse,twisted,destructive, lifestyles and behaviors, etc. I don’t subscribe to the accepted norm and narrative, nor do I seek to be accepted or fit in with this new, popular,perverse,corrupt,conforming culture.The opposite is true.I’m repulsed by it, and run the other way when I see it.

 

My goals is to speak the truth about God his word, his requirements and what pleases and displeases him,as I am instructed.And although I don’t intentionally, necessarily, set out to offend anyone.I understand that being bluntly honest is sure to rub some the wrong way. If you know and study scripture, you would know my lord and savior Jesus Christ ( of whom I’m proud to call my example) was equally as blunt if not more so, on a number of occasions when exposing evil doers,evil, and calling it what it is. .


 

Matthew 10:24-27

King James Version (KJV)

24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.

25 It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

26 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

 

 

Matthew 23:13-33

King James Version (KJV)

13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

19Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.

21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.

22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.

23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.

27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.

29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,

30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.

31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.

32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.

33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

 


Christ also requires and commands his present day servants to boldly reprove or expose evil  and apply that same judgment in righteousness that he applied when he walked the earth.


 

Matthew 23:23 

23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

 

John 7:24
King James Version (KJV)
24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

 

John 8:26
King James Version (KJV)

26 I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.

 

John 9:39
King James Version (KJV)
39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.

 


 

And if  I were primarily concerned about offending others, I would have to keep silent because the truth will always offend, especially in such a perverse and wicked society we live in today. So to answer your question, I believe I’m civil for the most part.But I think my blunt delivery of the truth is what offends some,as opposed to a lack of civility, because their own guilty conscience condemns and convicts them.


 

John 3:20-23

King James Version (KJV)

20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
