Divide and Conquer

One very simple rule of warfare is to “divide conquer”. One way to implement this strategy is to divide your enemy into sects that fight against each other and away from you. We see this in the Christian churches. They are divided into over one thousand separate denominations, doctrines, and sects some of which despise the others. Each is more concerned in maintaining their system than in combining forces against their common enemy, the Devil.

Another implementation is to assault your adversary from two or more fronts at one time. This causes confusion and it is pretty much guaranteed to overwhelm and demoralize the enemy and to wear them down in a war of attrition. This deadly dynamic has been proved effective on two notable occasions in history. One was during the Napoleonic Wars where Napoleon mounted a two-front campaign. The second was during World War Two when Hitler initiated a “Zweifrontenkrieg” (two-front war). History books are long in relating the disastrous results of these errors in tactics.

It is this second strategy I want to focus on. Napoleon and Hitler both initiated the two-front war. But, I want to call attention to the multiple-front strategy initiated from without (the dynamics are the same either way). It is being directed on all sides by those forces that are bent on destroying America and Christianity. These are the same forces that are plotted and choreographed by the same mastermind, Satan, who, from the beginning, has hated this country and its Christian population.

To counter the various and almost uncountable threats, many so-called “Right-Wing” organizations and Christian groups have marshaled their resources against the “Left-Wing” atheists, witches, tree huggers, baby killers, New Agers, and a plethora of other haters of our nation and our God. They are making constant pleas for funds so that they may continue taking a stand against those who hate truth, justice, and the American way

But that’s also my point. There are so many organizations that you almost can’t count them because there are so many heathens fighting against us that you can hardly deal with them. Surely they are doing a great work. But, the onslaught against truth and the cries for help are overwhelming the mind of the average Christian. Everywhere they turn they are being asked to help and to give. It may be to help rescue children from the slave trade in North Africa or it may be to help feed the indigent in the Appalachian Mountains. It is my opinion that, as a result, he simply shuts down and does nothing. The entire matter is just too much to contend with.

This perhaps helps to explain why such a large majority of “believers” and other lovers of truth simply do nothing. At least I certainly hope so. Nothing else makes much sense as to why the people of this great nation simply sit passively by one day at a time and watch it being ripped from their hands one piece at a time. They don’t contact their Congressmen, they don’t support those who are fighting for their very existence, and they won’t even vote! According to a CNN poll only about 25% of “Christians” vote. Of those, 25% vote for the baby killers and those who hate Christians. Go figure. Not much else other than epithets can account for this (and I prefer to think more positively about the family of God and other decent folks so I won’t go there).

Yet, what else can be said when the enemy is working indefatigably day and night to pillage our rights and nation and the good people of our country do…nothing. Watchmen are screaming the alarm from the rooftops and our people do…nothing. The internet is buzzing with truth. We have more information instantly available than at any other time in history and our people do…nothing. The churches are empty at most other times than Sunday and Wednesday because no one is crying out to God in prayer. They’re doing…nothing. Some appear to prefer abject ignorance while others don’t want to rock the boat. Others actually repudiate the truth because they bear no witness with it.

On such example is my ex-brother-in-law who is an intelligent hard working individual. He’s a great guy and good friend. Yet he would have none of this “crazy talk” about “Big Brother” taking over. There were no “ears to hear” concerning the government’s complicity in the overthrow of the working man and of the country. He wasn’t concerned as long as he had his new Sony big screen TV and his gas BBQ grill. I was unable to further communicate with him on the matter. He was in abject denial and was doing…nothing to save his sinking ship. He and I were divided on the issue.

And so the story goes day after day, church after church, home after home, neighborhood after neighborhood, city after city, and state after state. Save for the few brave stalwarts who have been and are sacrificing for the good of their country, the “Silent Majority” remains mute, divided, and immobilized.

Perhaps people only unite and cry out to God when they have to live on leeks and onions and are required to build bricks with mud and straw. We shall see.
