“The world is a dangerous place…because of those who look on and do nothing.”

“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”

Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955) Physicist & Nobel Laureate

SEE:

From the sermon–which is about watchmen, not other subjects:

“It’s not the job of the preacher to be well liked. It’s not the job of the preacher to make money and be wealthy. It’s not the job of the preacher to be notable in society. It’s not the job of the preacher to belong to all the social clubs so people can say what a wonderful fellow he is.

The preacher has one job. To sound the clarion call of truth, and to warn the people about what is right and what is wrong, and the danger they are in when it comes.

America’s problem is not a political problem. America’ problem is not a social problem. America’s problem is not an education problem. America’s problem is not a liberal problem or a left problem.

America’s problem is a pulpit problem. The men of God in the pulpits today are not the watchmen that God has instructed them to be.

In other words, whenever you see the danger, when you see the wickedness, and you choose to be silent and you excuse your silence saying “I didn’t know about that,” does not the Lord know your heart? Does He not know your cowardice? Will He not avenge the innocent and judge those of you who had the responsibility to sound the trumpet and failed to do so?

Proverbs 24:11-12:

11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;

12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works.

Pastor Chuck Baldwin

Failure to speak against evil and passivity–WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY? And what did Dietrich Bonhoeffer say?
