While reading North’s description of the easy Spanish conquests of the Aztec and Incan empires, one sentence stands out:
“The corporate will to resist
is the key to long-term victory.”
Numerous Christian pastors, priests and preachers have dedicated generations to undermining the will to resist intensely evil people and ideologies… so long as said evil comes with the stamp of approval of the secularist, pointedly anti-Christian Academic class.
(That is, all forms of evil except the Nazis… and the Nazi’s had the progressive stamp of approval before 1941, when they attacked the Soviet Union.)
- Sometimes, the religious professionals bleat on about the need to understand and welcome and sympathies with corrupt and evil men.
- Sometimes, they insist that the wearing of badges and uniforms automatically gives evil the stamp of Divine approval: “Power justifies!”
- Sometimes, they insist that we shouldn’t waste our time expanding the Kingdom of God in the Here and Now. “This is really Satan’s world! All we can do is run away and hide, and pray for a Rapture Escape from reality!”
The fearful and faithless (at best) and the traitors (at worst) should be driven out of the pulpits. We need men and women who will lead and strengthen the Christian will to resist the wicked.
And not merely resist the wicked.
The Lord said to me, “You are my Son;Psalm 2:7b-9, ESV
today I have begotten you.
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,
and the ends of the earth your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron
and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.”
The Law of the Land is to reflect and uphold God’s Law: that is, the law given to Moses, and modified by Christ.
The Law of God is to be manifested in every nation, publicly, across the entire world. Wherever there is a community, there God’s Law should reign, publicly, in the law books.
It is the wicked that is to be publicly loathed and driven to dark places… everywhere.
It is the righteous that are to walk freely under the sun, doing exactly as God expects us to do and living as He commands us to live, fearing nothing and nobody except the Lord Most High.
There is no substitute for victory.
