Quotable Quotation

“All it takes for evil to prevail is for a few good men to do nothing.”

—  Irish statesman Edmund Burke, a conservative Whig politician from colonial times.

This famous quotation is an already mentioned reprise, yet is good to remember from time to time.  The denouement of any nation is never a blow out but always a slow leak.  The United States of America was founded on Christian principles and they became the law of the land.  The Ten Commandments were posted in courts of law, Sunday became the national day of rest, the Bible was sworn on in courts of law, and the list goes on and on.  Because of the fallen world we live in, however, these precepts are ALWAYS under attack.  How ironic that we are now fighting for the right to live out our beliefs in our own private business that we founded (Hobby Lobby), without government interference.  Once the proverbial camel’s nose is in the tent……  One observant commentator to this blog site noted that one more liberal Supreme Court Justice will turn the tables in their favor.  Who appoints the justices?  Yes, we can see the domino effect.  Pray for this nation.  Pray for our leaders.  Pray that the true church would courageously rise up, and along with our political leaders take heed to Burke’s quotation.  Conservative politician Patrick Buchanan wrote an excellent book entitled “The Death of the West.”  In it he said that our only hope is revival.  I could not agree more…..  Pray that in God’s infinite sovereignty, grace and mercy, that He would shower out His blessings upon the United States even though we do not deserve it.  If the church does not intercede, who will/can?
