Marx vs Spurgeon

“Karl Marx, an apostle of evil, and Charles Spurgeon, the “Prince of Preachers,” were evangelists with messages that couldn’t have been more different—and they lived in the same city at the same time.” https://founders.org/2020/09/02/karl-marx-vs-charles-spurgeon-an-epic-struggle-for-the-souls-of-men-in-19th-century-london/

“It is extraordinary to me that both Karl Marx (1818-1883) and Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892) lived and worked in the same city at the same time. Both were, in a sense, evangelists contending for the souls of men with their competing visions of humanity. Moreover, each was at the height of his powers at the same time as the other. While Marx was preaching salvation through bloody revolution, Spurgeon, on the other side of the city, was preaching salvation through the blood and grace of Jesus Christ…

“It would be wrong to say—as many preachers do—that addressing matters of politics falls outside of the purview of the clergy. Of no other sphere of life do they say it. Regardless, Spurgeon certainly didn’t agree with this sentiment. Christianity isn’t merely an accessory to a man’s life; it should define it. Thus, a man’s politics are simply the outward manifestation of the convictions of his heart. Socialism, Spurgeon knew, was much more than an economic or political question. It is a spiritualquestion, if only because it denies the very existence of the spiritual. It is, as I have written elsewhere, atheism masquerading as political philosophy…

“It is very likely that the preaching of Spurgeon, and others like him, prevented the violent Revolution in Britain that Marx sought. Ironically, that revolution would come in the unindustrialized Russia of 1917, when Vladimir Lenin would, at the cost of millions of lives, implement Marx’s unworkable ideas. That is in no small measure due to the fact that there was no viable church to critique the undeliverable promises of socialism…

Overcome Evil with Good – Where are the Men?

“I will not stand by in the presence of evil,” Alita Battle Angel

Like a muddied spring or a polluted fountain is a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.
Proverbs 25:26

Where are the men…

Who is responsible for the safety of your family? Hint: it’s not the government or the police. It’s you. You are the man!

How much time do you spend training? Is it more than you spend golfing, playing video games, or watching tv?

Have you trained for a mass shooter incident? Do you know what to do?

It’s time to take responsibility. This culture needs good men willing to confront evil.

Therefore I stationed some of the people behind the lowest points of the wall at the exposed places, posting them by families, with their swords, spears and bows. After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.” 
Nehemiah 4:6, 11, 13-15

“The grey man is one who simply blends in to any scene or situation. He does not stand out. He does not boast about his skills or abilities, but he is ready to use them the instant they are needed. He is hidden in plain sight but is ready for action. You have seen the grey man; you just haven’t noticed him. That is the way it’s supposed to be.”

Statesmen

“the men who composed the first Colonial Congress… were profoundly convinced of what statesmen know and mere politicians never perceive – that ideas are the life of a people – that the conscience, not the pocket, is the real citadel of a nation”
