Dear Readers:

The famous Irish statesman/historian, Edmund Burke, in reviewing the history of wars and bloodshed, and millions of men, women, and children who perished under the ruthless heel of evil, concluded:

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

Throughout history as in America today, “good men” stood silent in the face of evil. As a consequence, by turning their backs on the fast-approaching tidal wave of evidence in their time;  by NOT taking action as commanded by the Author of Liberty, Christ Himself, they ushered their families into infernos of unspeakable suffering and death.  God describes freedom’s evil enemies:

Their feet are swift to shed blood: Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace they have not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes (Rom: 3:15-18).

Q:  IS Faith without works dead? (Jas. 2:14)   Can a contemporary proclaiming Christian rationalize that everything, including the above horrible current events, is in God’s hands, and that what we do or not do will have no effect upon our salvation?

Numerous of my previous blogs, listed by title in the column to the right,  enumerate mandates throughout the Bible  from our Creator which make it clear that freedom is not free; that it’s price is eternal vigilance; that to stand neutral and unengaged in the battles for our Christ-given freedom is to usher in by invitation called “default”, the evil workers of iniquity: …your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour (1Pet.5:8).

Christ makes it clear that a truly saved born-again person, indwelled by the Holy Spirit will, by his or her transformed nature, automatically, irresistibly be able to identify Satan’s works and will engage in the conflicts with evil.

Our Lord has made crystal clear through His word the Bible, His mandate that we are to Stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free (Gal 5:1)!

In fact, from Genesis through Revelation He has proclaimed the same never-changing truths regarding the Source of liberty; what is necessary to win and maintain it.  Following are some of those mandates: Eph 2:10; Titus 2:14  

Continuing: Mat 21:19, [consequences for disobedience]: And now the axe is laid to the root of the trees…every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire (Mat. 3:10; John 15:2).   To sin by silence (Eph 5:7).; halting between two opinions (1 Kings 18:21); turning the other cheek (Luke 10:31-32); knowing to do good but doing  it not  (James 4:17).  Watching the slaughter as a spectator… (Obad.11);  Just as guilty as the perpetrators of evil  [If you refuse to reprove, rebuke, and exhort] (Obad 11); (2 Tim. 4:1).

God is not mocked; for whatsoever a man soweth [through lack of diligence], that shall he also reap (Gal. 6:7).


For more action mandates spanning the Old and New Testaments, go to my last blog titled SIMILAR OBSERVATIONS, OPPOSITE INTENTIONS: HITLER, DR. R.C. SPROUL, CHURCHILL, GOD. It includes comparison between Hitler’s pre-Nazi Germany and the United States today; and,  read part 2 – action Bible verses.  Bear in mind that in pre WWII, Germany was a Christian nation, but the clergy turned passive and thus undiscerning of evil, as in America today. Hitler saw his big chance.

Obviously, our Creator is delivering the same message to all generations (Psalm 100:5):  Events change; circumstances change, but Truth (the foundation of God’s laws of liberty and a Christian’s duty) is absolute and never changes.  What is Truth? I am the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). 

The mandates from God to us for eternal vigilance could not be more clear; nor could the consequences to our children and loved ones for passive disengagement in today’s life or death struggles with the workers of iniquity; that is, for the preservation of America’s God-given freedoms.

THINK ABOUT IT: how good are “good men” who, in effect mock God by doing nothing while claiming salvation through “faith”, who turn their backs on their families and children in these perilous times, thus by default usher them into a fast approaching indescribable inferno of suffering which they, as parents, can help avert? 

IS “faith without works dead?” (Jas. 2:14)  Also:  I know thy works, so because thou art lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth (Rev. 3:16).


What will Muslim ISIS, unless stopped, do to your children?  ISIS has just decapitated 21 more Christian captives, and buried alive and burned to death many Christian children.
