Finally, Hate Speech legislation is coming to New Zealand.
We have gone past the “You will know hate speech when you hear it”
Now the population waits with baited beath as to what will be considered hate speech as opposed to Free Speech.
The control of conversations and language is a huge part of the agenda on the left as it continues its march towards Marxism.
Think back over the years have you consciously said something out of anger or as humour, like in a throwaway line.
Have you ever responded on social media using sarcasm because the original post was a shocker.
Have you ever told someone asking a question, “If I told you the answer, I would have to kill you first,”
Then what about having a viewpoint on a subject which you oppose because of morality, fairness or just because,
The determination of the government to control our thoughts very much mirrors the 2002 Steven Spielberg movie The Minority Report.
The main theme of Minority Report is the classic philosophical debate of free will vs. determinism. One of the main questions the film raises is whether the future is set or whether free will can alter the future.
For some odd reason, none of the streaming platforms have the Minority Report available in their libraries these days.
Maybe because it’s too close to what is reality today.
I have always thought when Hollywood comes out with futuristic movies such as this, they are probably an indicator of what’s to come.
At the crux of Hate Speech is censorship.
The ability to speak freely is to be eroded and already in New Zealand we have seen how far this current government was prepared to go during the parliamentary grounds protest in March earlier this year.
Even the media organization STUFF produced its one-sided documentary Fire and Fury.
So New Zealand we are stuffed if we allow freedom of speech, an exchange of ideas and the difference in philosophy around religion, ethnicity, or culture to be shut down.
I have many questions as do some academics in this country who are asking the questions of the government as to definition and how much reach legislation will have.
Will we see a comparable situation as the German Population did when the Fascist government called on its citizens to Dobb in, not just their neighbors but family members as well.
But then I forget, this is encouraged by this government already,
Lots of questions are raised about Hate Speech, e.g. Here at Christian Voice New Zealand, we have been forthright on several issues, once hate speech arrives, could we see the authority come to our door and ask us to take a post down or be arrested for things we have said in the past.
Which brings me to what really Hate Speech is all about.
And this depends on how you look through the lens.
If we look at the bible through the lens of today’s culture, those who promote the culture don’t like it.
Their opposition to it is swift,
And yet if you looked at culture through a biblical lens you would see a different picture. One I believe every human should take rather than dismiss it
Recently the announcement was made that the planet Earth now has a population of 8 billion people and yet there are the elites who want to see the number go backwards, alternatively we see governments encouraging growth. Go figure.
At the heart of Hate speech is the populations desire to rid the world of accountability.
Accountability to, and acknowledgement of our creator.
Accountability to the Truth, regardless of how it affects you.
We mentioned the one sidedness of a New Zealand media outlet, but the media is no longer interested in reporting the truth anymore.
They cannot jump fast enough on negativity about God’s church, but in fairness to them, some church organizations deserve the negative press, but the impact on others in the faith is brutal.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern stood on her podium of truth and told the population the Government was “the single source of truth,” with fact checking and now hindsight, it was just another lie.
The apostle Paul in writing to Timothy mentioned evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But to remember “all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,”
Right, there is really the sole source of truth and while it may contain verses and statements about morality, the world remains opposed to it,
So if you want to stay out of trouble in the future then do not quote God’s word The Bible because what is contained between its covers, is the truth that the world no longer accepts.
They want their own truth, but there’s will not set them free, instead it will only cause their demise.
A definition of Hate Speech is coming, and if you profess to be a footstep follower of Jesus Christ make sure you remain steadfast in your beliefs, know exactly how and the reasons why you should respond in a world that is rapidly changing.
Consider today the ramifications of standing steadfast in your beliefs and do not waiver.
Eight Billion people on the planet, it just makes me sad to think when the one who is faithful and true rides to claim the earth again, many will be lost because they choose to believe in the ever-changing culture,
Jeremiah 13 states These wicked people, who refuse to listen…to follow the stubbornness of their hearts and go after other gods to serve and worship them, will be like his belt—completely useless!
My personal invitation to you is to investigate the scriptures rather than dismiss them.
Seek out a bible believing preaching church and you will be set free.
What is Hate speech?
Whatever is decided upon will be a defining moment in the history of New Zealand and its ramifications will be felt throughout the land
