When Good Men Do Nothing
Luke 11:23 Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.
With all the stuff going on in this world, terrorism and brutality and persecution, all that stuff, seemingly out of control, we can quickly come to the conclusion that “little old me” can’t make one iota of difference.
Well, if that’s a conclusion that you’ve come to, you’d be absolutely and completely … wrong!!
Back in the 1700’s there was an Irish statesman called Edmund Bourke. Unless you happen to be Irish, you’ve probably never heard of the guy. But he once said something that you probably have heard of. It was this:
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing.
When we see evil being perpetrated, whether on a national or global scale, or in our own circle of influence, we can do something. We can stand up, speak out, act against the evil … even though it may cost us our reputations, and maybe even our lives.
Now is the time for Christians to stand up and be counted. Now!
For Christ’s sake.
