The appeasement of one - good? (08/11/2013)
From: David Foss

Galesville, Wis.

One person is upset at the sight of a cross, so letís remove all the crosses in America. Letís give in and appease the one.

One person is upset hearing ďMerry Christmas!Ē so letís only allow people to say,ĒHappy Holidays!Ē Letís give in and appease the one.

One person is upset by the Pledge of Allegiance, so letís not allow the Pledge of Allegiance to be recited in the classroom. Letís give in and appease the one.

One person is upset about saying a prayer in school, so letís take prayer from the classrooms in America. Lets give in and appease the one.

One person is upset about the mere mention of God or Jesus Christ, so letís not allow anyone to mention God or Jesus Christ. Letís give in and appease the one.

One person is upset about proselytizing the message of salvation to those who are lost, so letís not allow the lost to be told the truth of Scripture. Letís give in and appease the one.

One person is upset about the preaching of Godís word, so letís not allow the preaching of Godís word. Letís give in and appease the one.

One person is upset about mentioning God or Jesus Christ at graduation, so letís not allow this to continue. Letís give in and appease the one.

One person is upset about praying before a sporting event, so letís not allow this to continue. Letís give in and appease the one.

One person is upset upon hearing ďHappy Thanksgiving!Ē so letís just say, ďHappy Turkey Day!Ē Letís give in and appease the one.

Allowing the rule of one in America has been nonsensical, has been of an unsound mind, has been demoralizing. What we have allowed (in giving in to the one) is indeed nonsensical because we have allowed one individual the power to destroy that which is righteous.

Why doesnít everyone realize how nincompoopish we have been? Here is but one example: 100 people are presented with a gift of a new Bible. One person complains and says, ďI insist that all of these Bibles be returned to the person who gave them to us!Ē Said and done. This makes good sense? Again, why doesnít everyone realize the obvious absurdity of such thoughts and perverse decisions? No one with any common sense and honesty would agree that demoralizing decisions have made things better here in America.

Has the appeasement of one been good for America? A resounding NO! We are no longer a nation going right; we are now a nation going wrong. It is never wise to appease the one (getting rid of that which is good), while angering everyone else. There will always be those who will oppose anything that stands for what is right and good, but we should never give in to their wicked demands. No, the appeasement of one is never good ó for anyone.

Ponder Isaiah 5:20, Proverbs 17:15

P.S. Everyone should insist on appeasing the 99 and then do what God says we are to do for the ďenemies of righteousness.Ē Matthew 5:44
