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

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” (Edmund Burke) this is a paraphrase of the following passage.

“ It is not enough in a situation of trust in the commonwealth, that a man means well to his country; it is not enough that in his single person he never did an evil act, but always voted according to his conscience, and even harangued against every design which he apprehended to be prejudicial to the interests of his country. This innoxious and ineffectual character, that seems formed upon a plan of apology and disculpation, falls miserably short of the mark of public duty. That duty demands and requires that what is right should not only be made known, but made prevalent; that what is evil should not only be detected, but defeated. When the public man omits to put himself in a situation of doing his duty with effect it is an omission that frustrates the purposes of his trust almost as much as if he had formally betrayed it. It is surely no very rational account of a man’s life, that he has always acted right but has taken special care to act in such a manner that his endeavours could not possibly be productive of any consequence.”

Edmund Burke “ Thoughts On The Cause Of The Present Discontents” 1770 (An- extract)

When words won’t do…God always gives someone music.

After hearing about the tragedy in Newtown, I could find no words to say that might provide comfort the way I wanted them to.  A song came up in my heart.  “Because of who You Are”   It’s a song that provides comfort in the toughest of times.

I found a jewel on Youtube.  Going to try and post it.

You can find it here    Isn’t amazing how God can use someone just willing to be different?  I know I was blessed and I hope you are too!

 

Thank You Sarah92790 whoever you are… You have a wonderful gift and I look forward to hearing more music from you graced with your special  talents.

R U Bringing It 2 Church?

R U Bringing It 2 Church?

R u bringing it 2 Church?  R u prayed up, Praised up, and got ur Word on?   If ur getting a little down and disappointed because ur Church isn’t doing it 4u.  Stop asking what ur church can do 4 u and ask instead what can u do 4 ur Church.   Be a blessing to ur Pastor, brothers, and sisters at church.   Bring it on, bring it all on 2 ur Church & watch what God does.

Behind the Sunday Morning Mask…

A couple of nights from tonight we’ll b c ing lots of masks.   Scary ones, funny ones, Ugly ones, and pretty ones.

We all know that what’s behind the mask may or may not b anything like the facade we c.

What about Sunday Morning?  What’s behind your Sunday Morning Mask?  R U really that person?

Just like the people handing out candy know that the masks on Halloween r not real, don’t U think that the people that sit behind U, beside U and in front of U know that your mask isn’t real either.

Remove the mask and b yourself.  That’s who God created U 2 B.

What sets U apart?

We r 2 b n the world but not of the world.  What sets u apart?  What makes u peculiar?

It’s not your clothes, your Jesus pins nor ur lack of makeup that sets u apart.

Different denominations have different standards they live by just like Families have different rules and standards.

What u do 2 belong 2 a community doesn’t set u apart from the world.

Being at peace when the rest of the world is n fear of “What’s 2 come?” That sets u apart.

Trusting God and relaxing n his rest while everyone else is scurrying around trying to figure out what they r going 2 do.  That sets u apart.

Believing n people when everyone else says u should give up on them.  That sets u apart.

 Loving one another as God loves us when the rest of your friends (Church friends included) tell you “They don’t go to our church why do you hang around them?”  “They don’t believe the same doctrine as we do u better not fellowship with them or they’ll mess u up.   Good Heavens Jesus is coming back for the Body of Christ not one building with a particular Name on the placard.

Maybe u need 2 get messed up a little.  Maybe u need 2 look out the window of ur church and c who else is out there.  Believe me there r a lot of hurting and scared people.  And these people r hurting and scaring even more people.  Wouldn’t it b nice if someone could show them God’s peace and rest?  Wouldn’t it b nice if that person was u?

Show God’s Love, peace, acceptance and rest 2  someone this week.  Let them know they are special in God’s Eyes.  It may b a small thing 2 u.  But it could b a miracle 2 the person that u r  talking 2.

One time I did something that I thought was small and insignificant but God asked me to so I did it.  Just plopped down a $5 bill when a lady ran a bit short and couldn’t pay for her groceries.  No big deal right?

Lady yelled at me crying in the parking lot.  Said she was just crying out to God that morning (not prayer…she was angry because she didn’t believe he was real or that Christians were real)  because she didn’t believe there were anymore people that cared left.  She felt like that $5 bill was God reaching down to her from Heaven and that He did hear her.

She was a pile of bones and flesh sobbing at this “experience”.  God provided an appointment and I accepted the opportunity to show someone that God is still alive and does care very deeply.

Sometimes all u have 2 do is get outside your house and the 4 walls of your church.  B different and b set apart.  Not n an odd showy kind of way.  It’s not your garments, your hair, your make-up or lack there of.  It’s not pants, nor dresses or even Coveralls. It’s not hate words painted on signs or T-Shirts.

It’s not about u or what u do.  It’s about what Jesus Did 4 u.

Share what Jesus has done with someone.

Wondering why people who say they are Christians do not act like a disciple of Christ?

We all have “issues” and where mercy is sown, mercy is given .

However, if you’ve always wondered why some people or groups who profess that they are Christians do not act like their master?

Follow along this week with Andrew Wommack on Gospel Truth and learn “Discipleship Evangelism.”      Like the saying… “sitting in a pew doesn’t make you a Christian any more than sitting in a Garage  makes you a Car”.   Click HERE for link to Gospel Truth.

Also if you have confessed that you are a Christian but you really don’t know anything about Jesus or how to be like Him.  I would encourage you to watch this week and learn how to become a follower of Christ.
