First Friday Prayer is streaming live
I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we ask on behalf of our nation and its leaders that we would have courage to resist manipulation, pressure and the fear of man.

There are many societal and leftist influencers who are seeking to redefine our cultural norms and the words we use. In turn, if those participating in society do not conform to these redefined “woke” norms and words they are at risk of being challenged or cancelled. Our society has been bombarded with new “woke” speech. This speech is meant to introduce a socialist mindset and divide our society to force a disturbing change in the fundamental norms that define our society.

It is important to fully comprehend “left-speak” to avoid confusion and to protect the foundation of our republic and the Constitution. The Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution to ensure specific protections were present to guard against tyranny. James Madison, a founding father wrote, such “fundamental maxims of free Government” would be “a good ground for an appeal to the sense of community” against potential oppression and would “counteract the impulses of interest and passion.” As we watch our freedom of speech erode, we see a rise in passions that threaten our liberty and peace.  Richard Henry Lee added “those essential rights of mankind without which liberty cannot exist.” 

Here is an example of some of the new terms being used by the left that support their revolutionary goals and are taken from Left Speak-A Glossary of Terms.   

Arsenal:  Plural of “Firearm” 

Assault Weapon: Firearm 

Bi-Partisan: Leftist/Progressive, Socialist, Marxist, etc… 

Border Security: Racism 

Budget Cut: A massive government spending increase that could have been even larger if not for the “Divisiveness” in our society. 

Capitalism: (see “Greed”) 

Change: Socialism. Example: “I am the candidate of ‘Change’.” 

Children: Government. (Variations are, “The Children” and “Our Children”) Example: “In our ‘Compassion’‘We’ are creating this new entitlement program for ‘Our Children’.” Or; “This new national RFID implant system will help ‘Our Children’. 

Climate Change: See “Global Warming”. Climate change is slightly more flexible in that no matter what happens, it is bad, Liberty is to blame, and socialism, as for all things, is the solution. 

(The) Common Good: Socialism 

Compassion: Deep, warm, heartfelt desire for government intervention against one’s neighbors. Example: “‘We’ must approach all issues with great ‘Compassion’.” 

Compassionate Conservative: A concept used to allow the government to invade all aspects of life through increased “Resource Allocation” while invoking religious tolerance to garner support.  

Compound: The home of a firearm owner. 

Compromise: Letting go of ignorant and outdated American ideals of Liberty and moving always in the direction of pure socialism.

Read “Words for Warriors” by Sam Sorbo (wife of Christian filmmaker Sorbo) for understanding about 200 of the crazy terms and their deceitful, tricky usage these days. We must speak up against these dangerous works and reveal the truth.

    Sam is a very brave and unafraid woman of God! I saw her on a Christian program and she is awesome!

We have FREEDOM OF SPEECH in this country! It’s not left speak or right speak, woke, not woke, etc. We do not want or need a left speak glossary!! We the people are NOT going to conform to their re-defined “woke terms.” Who do these people think we are? Mindless dummies who just do and say what they want? Yes, I am mad! My grandchild has to put up with this insane bunch of what my husband used to call, “educated idiots.” They are what the Germans called “useful idiots! I think they like to hear themselves talk! They don’t realize they are being used by the Marxist/Socialists in academia, media and government, but will later be discarded by them!
It is totally absurd and unacceptable. My vocabulary will remain the same! Speaking the truth, in love, and praising my God with all my heart! Forgive me, if I offended anyone! I’m just really tired of what’s going on! People should know better. Believers really should know better!

    I sympathize with your position, Pauline. We conservatives are in a quandry to preserve and propogate our values against the threats to them brought about by (what I will euphemistically call) “cultural trends.” The glossary Camille brings to us reveals the nature of those trends. (What they call enlightenment, we call sin.) I think we need to preserve conservative values by doing it in a progressive way. By using modern weapons, like understanding leftist thoughts by knowing their language, we can be a modern reaction to a modern world gone astray. The Gospel of Jesus Christ must remain our central message. It is on His truth that the founding of our republic was based. But, to communicate truth it is necessary to use words understood by hearers of what we say. If I say, “Accepting Jesus CHANGED my life,” the “woker” will think I became a socialist. “..may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” I Thes 5:23

      I took Camille’s information as a warning that the “new” woke language is a part of the socialist agenda to divide us and FORCE their change in us to make us conform to what they want, and if we don’t, they “cancel” us. This is control and very dangerous! It is very disturbing! I am not perplexed or uncertain about how to react to this situation. With all my heart, I believe we cannot allow anyone to change our vocabularys in order to adapt to a Socialist agenda. Words have meaning. Words, like “changed” do not mean socialism, and any clear thinking person knows that. Jesus changed my life and continues to change it. Clearly, that does not mean I am a socialist. The word “change” has nothing to do with socialism. The solution to the “woke” people is not to change the language,by which we have communicated for years, the solution is, Jesus! These are lost, confused,deceived, , people. They are in need of the Saviour, so that their lives can be changed. We need to change hearts, not words, or language. God’s Word does not change. He is the same, yesterday, today and forever.
      The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty, through God, to the pulling down of strongholds. We have to use God’s words, his vocabulary, to pull down these deceptive strongholds. I pray that we will. Our world cannot afford to lose this battle! God bless you.

I pray that CORRECT definitions will be understood and courageously used in conversations, debates, in news media reports, in legislation and legal documents, and in schools. Our children are at risk . Lord, I pray for Your angel armies to surround and protect the minds of Your precious children, and bring strong parents, teachers, and leaders into the light of Truth. We must cast out the darkness, according to Your Word. In the most Holy Name of Jesus, and according to Your Will, Father God, I pray.
