By Dr. Mike Spaulding:
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. Edmund Burke
The quote above has been mentioned many times in many different contexts. It is part of a longer letter that Burke wrote to his friend Thomas Mercer in 1770. The entire thought that Burke sought to express is a powerful reminder of the evil that will befall any people who fail to swiftly and with much malice, destroy the evil actions of those who would by those actions enslave a free people in tyranny. Burke said:
Whilst men are linked together, they easily and speedily communicate the alarm of any evil design. They are enabled to fathom it with common counsel, and to oppose it with united strength. Whereas, when they lie dispersed, without concert, order, or discipline, communication is uncertain, counsel difficult, and resistance impracticable. Where men are not acquainted with each other’s principles, nor experienced in each other’s talents, nor at all practiced in their mutual habitudes and dispositions by joint efforts in business; no personal confidence, no friendship, no common interest, subsisting among them; it is evidently impossible that they can act a public part with uniformity, perseverance, or efficacy. In a connection, the most inconsiderable man, by adding to the weight of the whole, has his value, and his use; out of it, the greatest talents are wholly unserviceable to the public. No man, who is not inflamed by vain-glory into enthusiasm, can flatter himself that his single, unsupported, desultory, unsystematic endeavors, are of power to defeat the subtle designs and united cabals of ambitious citizens. When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.

Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 1 Peter 5:8
We are at war. No I’m not talking about the Military Industrial Complex’s insatiable hunger for profiteering at the expense of American men and women’s lives. I’m not talking about the escalating conflict between the various political factions and their comic stooges played out in the news cycle day after day. I’m not even talking about the globalists and their open borders agenda for the destruction of American national sovereignty. I’m talking about a much more devastating war with eternal consequences. The war between the fallen ones and our great God that is raging all around us.

In this episode, I welcome Ray Moore to SER to discuss the importance of homeschooling children.
The evidence is abundant that Christian children cannot continue to thrive within the government school system as they have done in years past. As historical justification for the withdrawing of our children from government schools, the original Exodus itself is a prime example. The children of Israel spent 400 years in Egypt exiled from the Promised Land. It was always to have been a temporary arrangement. While allowed in God’s providence, it was not God’s long-term blueprint for them.
Just as the conditions in Egypt drastically changed and turned against the people of God when Pharaoh arose “who did not know Joseph” (Exodus 1:8), so the current government system has radically turned against Christian children, their beliefs and even against Christian teachers. This has been true for decades, but now with the adoption of Common Core, indoctrination and coercion have accelerated.

Lots of Christians talk about discipleship. Churches focus their attention on making disciples. However, if Christians and the churches they attend really understood what being a disciple means and what making disciples really looks like, why is there such lack of courage and boldness in modern American Christians and from the churches they attend today?

Enemies Within: The Church is an educational, historical, and evidence-based movie experience that provokes a passionate return to orthodox Christian faithfulness across the western world. As is necessary for such a wonderful turn toward Christ, the movie heralds a clarion call for Christians to turn away from popular, yet errant beliefs held in contradiction to carefully interpreted Holy Scriptures. But Enemies Within: The Church is much more than a mere movie. It is also an invitation for believers to employ a proven Biblical recipe capable of producing restored strength and blessing for all who answer.
