The woke are bullying those who are of faith, regardless of their situation: the best documentation is at the BFD, because the original article is behind a paywall. You can’t have those Pacific players saying they are not ashamed of the gospel. We have too many people who have been indoctrinated into stupidity bleating slogans because the certification and credentials of graduation into the progressive cadre make them feel wise.
College students have lost the ability to think. The emotional protests at elite schools like Colgate show that students are incapable of weighing evidence and discerning between truth and fiction. Instead of making arguments based on facts and logic, students can only chant slogans and engage in fascist-style bullying tactics to silence opponents.
But we are called to proclaim the gospel to such. It is not the wise or the humble or the spiritual: but the foolish, the arrogant and the Pagan. Christ died for all, that all may be saved.
And the Holy Spirit will lead those who are saved to wisdom. Even in the most pagan and corrupt situations: and even the Romans knew that the early empire was corrupt.
8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed in all the world. 9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I mention you 10 always in my prayers, asking that somehow by God’s will I may now at last succeed in coming to you. 11 For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you— 12 that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine. 13 I want you to know, brothers, that I have often intended to come to you (but thus far have been prevented), in order that I may reap some harvest among you as well as among the rest of the Gentiles. 14 I am under obligation both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to the wise and to the foolish. 15 So I am eager to preach the gospel to you also who are in Rome.
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith,[c] as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
