“History will record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the (so-called) good people.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
Good people shouldn’t make excuses
Excuses on the left and excuses on the right. Oh, the little games that the so-called grown-ups have played. The lack of gratitude toward the sacrifices given for the freedoms that Americans have, and yet, Americans play the game of blaming others for what all are responsible, doing the right thing.
I headlined Edmond Burke’s quote where he stated:
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. – Edmund Burke
Yet, the statement is not true.
What do we mean by good and good people?
Good according to Webster’s 1828 Dictionary means
Having moral qualities best adapted to its design and use, or the qualities which God’s law requires; virtuous; pious; religious; applied to persons, and opposed to bad, vicious, wicked, evil.
Therefore, good people are those who do the right thing under God’s Moral Government (Exodus 20), not the wrong thing.
Americans have conditioned themselves to call themselves the good people. Yet, they do nothing concerning the bad people. As a matter of fact, today’s conservatives are, without a doubt, yesterday’s liberals.
God is speaking to those would call themselves the good people of the day:
They [have grown] fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. – Jeremiah 5:28
An instructive example
Let me give you an example. This week, someone had posted a meme on a live feed, which read:
This is what the Democrats have done to America:
Let illegals in
Let criminals out
Coddle the lazy
Persecute the Christians
Demonize police officers
Let boys into girls bathrooms
Tolerate and accept radical Islam
Advocate for the murder of the unborn
First of all, I would ask the reader where in any founding document does a divided party system appear? (Article 4, Section 4, US Constitution)
John Adams dreaded a divided party system
Furthermore, President John Adams said
There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution. (Exodus 18:21).
All the meme says about the Democrats and their crimes are only a reflection of what the so-called good people have tolerated from those they call the Left or Democrats. There is no such thing as the Left, America. It is simply a scapegoat to blame others for what the Right has left off.
Martin Luther King, Jr. rightly stated:
When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build (Isaiah 58:12) and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love (1 John 4:8). Where evil men would seek to perpetuate an unjust status quo, good men must seek to bring into being a real order of justice (Isaiah 26:9).
Spot on. Justice is the answer (Isaiah 56).
War between humans and the Law of God
There is a war between you and God’s Law. The Ten Commandments are against you. The first comes forward and says, “Let him be cursed. For he denies Me. He has another god beside Me. His god is his belly and he yields his homage to his lust.” All the Ten Commandments, like ten great cannons are pointed at you today.
For you have broken all God’s statutes and lived in daily neglect of all His commands. Soul, you will find it a hard thing to go to war with the Law. When the Law came in peace, Sinai was altogether on a smoke and even Moses said, “I exceeding fear and quake!”
What will you do when the Law of God comes in terror; when the trumpet of the archangel shall tear you from your grave; when the eyes of God shall burn their way into your guilty soul; when the great books shall be opened and all your sin and shame shall be punished… can you stand against an angry Law in that Day? – Charles Spurgeon
And that Law is a school master (Galatians 3:24), which drives us to the foot of the Christ, who came not only to deliver His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21) but also manifested Himself and empowered His church (2 Corinthians 7:10) to destroy the works of the devil (I John 3:8).
