There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12

There is a pushback taking place against the ever-increasing totalitarian impulse of the Left, which seeks to redefine all that God has established regarding marriage, sexuality, gender, individuality, freedom of belief, thought, and speech, punishing or “de-platforming” those who dare dissent.
Leading the pushback are popular thought leaders such as Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro, Dennis Prager, and others who hold tremendous sway with millions of followers who watch their speeches or video and read their books.
They resonate with people from all walks of life—conservatives, liberals, libertarians, and yes, Christians—who see the tyranny of political correctness and identity politics. They espouse degrees of truth, but none believe in “the way and the truth and the life”—Jesus Christ. In other words, they each have an intelligent and highly developed worldview, but not a biblical one that includes an accurate view of God, man, Christ, and redemption.
So how should Christians view these on the front lines of the battle with Cultural Marxism, which seeks to topple the “oppressor” of Christianity or simply make it irrelevant? Are they helpful allies or actually distractions to the gospel?
