The Code Words

As a teenager I well remember the McCarthyism and the hunt for those who espoused the social influence of the “union movement” and the attack on those who allegedly held the “party card” The code words in quotes told the story of fear in the 1950’s.

Again, the “code words” and the separation or maybe the “selection”, to the right or to the left

Albert Mohler writes a notable read.
“There is more to that story, however. The church is not to adopt a social reform platform as its message, but the faithful church, wherever it is found, is itself a social reform movement precisely because it is populated by redeemed sinners who are called to faithfulness in following Christ. The Gospel is not a message of social salvation, but it does have social implications.”

How will I and you implement social reform? We are of the Church, what must we do? What is social reform?

Luke 11:39 Then the Lord said to him, "Now then, you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.

Is fear being spread again? Should we adopt Beckism?
