Enough is Enough!

“At what point can we say, ‘ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!’” – Dan Flury
Last month, Deanna and I attended a meeting at the clubhouse in our community. While I was distributing literature at the far end of the room, Deanna was within earshot of two gentlemen who were arguing over some matter. Apparently, the discussion escalated to the point where one of the men started using profanity.
“Knock it off!” Deanna admonished them. “There are ladies in the room.”
I was proud of my firebrand of a wife for saying what needed to be said. Like most people, Deanna hates confrontation and usually shies away from such things. But she had had enough and so, she spoke her piece…and I’m glad she did.
Edmund Burke famously said, “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” That means that when evil raises its ugly head, men and women of faith and courage must confront it – and stop it in its tracks – or be guilty of tacitly approving of it.
Today, we see legislators advocating abortion in the third trimester…and even after birth. That kind of degenerate thinking must be called out for what it is: infanticide and evil incarnate. Likewise, we are told that there are now more than 120 different genders and each one deserves special accommodation. That’s absolute nonsense! Up until it became politically-incorrect to say so, the American Psychiatric Association labeled “gender identity disorder” as a mental illness and sought to provide proper counseling. Now, it is illegal in many places to offer such help. Instead, we are told that we must enable – and even celebrate – these delusions.
I don’t know about you, but I will not shy away from confronting evil in our society. I will seek to do so with humility and tact, but I will boldly confront it just the same. My Lord – and my precious grandchildren who someday will inherit this mess – deserve no less.
“So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.” Ezekiel 22:30 (NKJV)
