What was the mood, the posture or stance of the Christians in Germany during the late 1930’s?
The question is genuine. My sense of the matter is that when most want to be passive, and inner feelings, and intuitions say we should, there are only few who get it, we must stand up for what is right.
What does God expect of us? Defend the innocent, defeat the wicked. We brought the great war to and end, not by passivity, but by well orchestrated actions…actions that have seared our own souls.
Perhaps some want to engage in “white guilt.” Some in “Christian guilt.” I reject both. We are obliged to do what is right. Not what we feel, but what is morally, doctrinally, right.
The future is not pretty. But peace doesn’t not come through passivity or weakness. Peace comes through strength. Enemies and potential enemies must have the clear understanding that we are not soft target victims ready for their plunder and deceit.
I am not recommending a hostile stance. I am merely pointing out that through word and deed, our position points everyone to freedom. We will not accept domination from any.
This is like Germany, 1938-9. It is not a time for Christians to accept the “sit down, shutup” orders of the pc left. It is time to be active in our faith in its every expression. Stand for the right doings and the right sayings, in word and deed be all you were created to be.
Obama: Muslims Built ‘The Very Fabric of Our Nation’ http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/07/28/Obama-Celebrates-Muslim-Contributions-to-the-USA
This is insulting and infuriating! These people have done nothing of the kind. The wounds of 911 have destabilized our country. These wounds have not been healed. There is no liberty in Islam. Participants therein are subjugated, dominated and murdered when they express individual liberty such as Americans know it.
My contempt for a reckless and foolish president are the more intensified!
Here is what John Quincy Adams wrote about the Islamic prophet Mohammed:
In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE. [emphasis in the original]”
When Islam comes to majority in any country, you will see this emphasis of the brutal over the spiritual increase dramatically.
