There is a principle called “Hurt and Rescue”…used to describe the work of ”Progrievants.” What is a Progrievent? Dale, a caller to the Glen Beck show today, invented this descriptive for Liberals who cause suffering…complain about that suffering…and then capitalize on people who suffer.
PGs are always nearby…after a hurricane, financial decline, or trial verdict…they are ever ready to insert and enrich themselves upon our troubles.
Professional grievers were around even in Jesus’ day…hired to manipulate and agitate…moving the emotion and will of the masses in dangerous directions…often against those who called for reason and peace.
Resisted Progrievants are powerless. Too often though, they are empowered, when we choose to submit to their narratives, even permitting them to position us against one another. When we allow them to co-opt our problems…their voices become powerfilled and their agendas become law. Without a vote cast, they become our rulers!
It is noteworthy that many of the “Hurt and Rescue” types call themselves “Reverand.”
One Reverand who knew genuine suffering, said these words not long before he was killed by an assassin’s bullet, “Live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”
The Rev. Martin Luther King was not a Progrievant. His narrative of America’s problems was accurate. He humbly sought answers, and gave peaceful direction to overcome real problems.
America is suffering…again from the charge of racism. This weekend the “Rev.” Al Sharpton has called for 100 cities to “protest” over a co-opted societal issue. We should refuse to follow Al and his Progrievants.
We can stop the Hurt and Rescue cycle, if we refuse to follow the Progrievant’s narrative and stand as MLK did…honest and bold in the face of Liberals who would cause us unending suffering!
“…there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies…And many will follow their sensuality…And in their greed they will exploit you with false words…” (2 Peter 2:1-3/ESV)
