The easiest thing in the world is to abdicate responsibility. If you can talk yourself into believing that no matter what you would have done, the outcome would have been the same, then having done nothing won’t seem so bad. I hear this more and more often from people of all stripes, and it’s beginning to grate.
Whether it’s the elites, the cabal, the CIA, the shadow government, the NSA, the FDA, Bill Gates, the New World Order, George Soros, the Mayan Prophecies, or The Simpsons, the outcome of everything of relevance has already been predetermined, so no matter what you do it’s akin to tilting at windmills. There. You have been absolved of any duty heretofore, and henceforth.
It doesn’t matter who you vote for, or even if you vote, it’s always going to be a puppet who’s going to get the nod, and he’ll have his strings pulled by people in the shadows whose names are whispered in hushed tones only when thirty-third degree Masons have had one too many and get a bit tipsy.
If that were the case, all the people in the know four years ago would not have been borderline suicidal when the presidential election didn’t go their way. If everything were predetermined, the results of said election would not have been such an unexpected psychological groin kick.
Although the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing, many a good man is doing just that nowadays, nothing. We see no evil, we hear no evil, and if we speak evil, it’s against our brothers and sisters who realize they still have to contend with living on this spinning rock for a spell, and would rather not live in a more violent version of Venezuela if they can help it.
We’ve become fans of the circular firing squad in Christendom. We are quick to point out that anyone showing a modicum of concern for where society is headed is simply not up to our high spiritual standard.
If you were more heavenly minded, these things wouldn’t bother you so much; I had someone say to me recently. Perhaps, but if the church weren’t so cowardly, then maybe, just maybe things wouldn’t be degrading at the level they are. Ever since the genesis of creation, the light and the darkness have been at war, constantly struggling for dominance.
Moreover, the reality of this struggle was acknowledged by generals and foot soldiers alike. When the darkness attempted to encroach upon the light, the light stood its ground and pushed back against the enemy. Virtue, decency, truth, faith, and family were all things worth defending, fighting for, and if need be hills to die upon, but sadly, no longer.
We keep telling ourselves that we have to pick our battles, that the sleeping giant will awaken when it must, but battle after battle our snoring shakes the rafters, and the darkness advances unimpeded. If our children are not worth defending, if the lives of the innocent and the unborn are not worth fighting for, pray tell, what is? What are we waiting for? Why is our silence so deafening? Why is our indifference so all-encompassing?
Perhaps we’ve lost the stomach for battle. Maybe we never had it to begin with, and if this is the case, we should perhaps stop calling ourselves the Lord’s warriors and singing lies about Him having an army marching through the land. Apologies. I did not mean to disturb your slumber.
With love in Christ,
