Sony pulled the showing of a million dollars movie. Illegal aliens being renamed as documented aliens. Restoring diplomatic relations with Cuba, a communist country. Police standing by watching people looting and burning down businesses, because they were upset over a verdict. Happy Holiday’s being the accepted greeting, instead of Merry Christmas. All of these every day occurrences in America are the result of someone not standing righteously.
A corrupt VP builds a mini empire for himself on the letterhead of a company not owned or financed or founded by himself.
Pockets are lined by under the table deals and pages left out of contracts ,creating expenses that don’t exist.
The wealthy bring donors to to non profit organizations, that are actually owned by themselves, in order to launder their own ill gotten gain.
Expenses for a non existent employee are approved, by the manager who is reaping the benefit from the company credit card.
Far fetched? Who could get by with such things? It happens more often than you think.
How does it happen? The corruption is never really questioned.
The corrupt surround themselves by the corruptible, those with no integrity, those who will sell their souls for … a scrap, a title, some more money, a little bit of worldy power, something they can’t get any other way, cause they are totally inept.
Minions. They don’t ask questions, other than “How do we please YOU?”. They have no integrity. They stand for nothing. They compromise.
Edward Snowden, is not welcome in America. He will be arrested, tried as a traitor, because he stood strong for the truth,for us. He saw something wrong with our government looking into private citizens email, phone records, private online activity, in order to profile and label, in order to threaten and control our freedom. Snowden did not order the invasion of privacy, he is not the only government employee that witnessed this. Someone compromised, many compromised. If you believe Snowden deserves be ostrasized for his whistleblowing, you compromise.
I heard a discussion on the radio concerning Obama taking law into his own hands and breaking it by ignoring the constitution and proclaiming amnesty for all Illegal aliens. It was being said that it was yet more reason to impeach the president. These conservative men were saying the problem with impeaching the president would be the vice president, Biden. Him being the automatic replacement. These men decided it would be better to just endure Obama and his illegal tyranny for a couple more years so as to not have Biden. This is compromise! Allowing wrong, so as to possibly prevent an imagined wrong.
Would you turn a blind eye to the man abusing his wife, because of the sanctity of the marriage, and besides he might end up taking his frustration out on the kids. Accept killing unborn children, because the life they would live with that mother would be far worse than never existing. Stay in ‘your’ church as the preacher reveals a new and more loving way to interpret God’s Word? Yes, we do that. WE compromise! WE compromise, because it is happening, and WE are watching it, part of it.
We are afraid.
Afraid those doing the wrong will retaliate.
Scared that someone with a different opinion will confront.
Frightened we may be the only that is willing to stand, so we will be out on our own. Floating on an ark 40 days and 40 nights.
Terrified we will be asked to leave, to get out of the way, stop making trouble.
It is safer to follow the crowd, follow man. Why risk everything? Why not just leave well enough alone, and let the people in charge take care of it all, even if they are doing it wrong. They will be the ones held accountable anyway.
WE are to stand against evil, wrong, deceptions,even if it is to one in ‘authority’. They are JUST men.
What the world needs now is not love sweet love. What the world needs now is INTEGRITY.
5Thus says the Lord : “Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord. For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, And shall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, In a salt land which is not inhabited. (Jeremiah 17:5, 6 NKJV)
The fear of man brings a snare, But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe. (Proverbs 29:25 NKJV)
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! (Psalms 34:8 NKJV)
Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help. (Psalms 146:3 NKJV)
Look! You are trusting in the staff of this broken reed, Egypt, on which if a man leans, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust in him. (Isaiah 36:6 NKJV)
Evil men do not understand justice, But those who seek the Lord understand all. (Proverbs 28:5 NKJV)
Blessed are you when men hate you, And when they exclude you, And revile you, and cast out your name as evil, For the Son of Man’s sake. (Luke 6:22 NKJV)
Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. (II Timothy 3:12-15 NKJV)
Don’t be a coward.
