About Pushing Back

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good” (Romans 12:21)

Is the idea of overcoming evil with good an old outdated. first century idea? Or is still relevant for today?
The answer is, it might actually be even MORE relevant today than ever before.

We are all aware of how much violence, cruelty, meanness and perhaps the worse of all, lack of love is in the world today. All we have to do is turn on the television news programs, pick up a newspaper, or even surf around the internet for awhile and we see it everywhere. It may not always be murder, torture, rape, or any of the really violent crimes against humanity, but we see it everyday with folks who think nothing of, “lording it over other people”, or labeling everyone who disagrees with them an “idiot or a moron”, or barking at everyone and as we say “biting their head off” over every little offense.

We sometimes feel despair and wonder if  our little bit of good won’t end up getting torn down and shredded to pieces by all the jealous, hated filled, petty, wicked people who refuse to deal with their sin.

Ever feel that way?

It has been said the opposite of love is NOT hate. Actually the opposite of love is indifference. Don’t give in and let the rude, hate filled people have their way.

This blog is about some of the many people who are on the very front lines of overcoming (or as we like to say — pushing back) evil with good. And we can fortify them and support them with our prayers and our support, along with making sure we do something everyday to make life a little easier, a little brighter for someone we meet along the way.

We can keep overcoming evil with good.

We must !

We invite you to click on the page tabs and get to know a little about some of the guys right out there on the front line pushing back evil.

***********************************************************
They are overcoming evil with a dedicated evangelistic movement:

Matthew 28: 19, 20 —” Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

***********************************************************

With humanitarian aid in the Name of Christ, helping hurting people around the world:
Luke 10:30–37 —  “Jesus replied and said, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead.
 And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
 Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
 But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion,  and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
 On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.’
  Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?”
 And he said, “The one who showed mercy toward him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do the same.”

***********************************************************
They are overcoming evil by educating any and all who would listen. And alerting us to the news the mainstream media never seems to report on and showing us how it ties into the Bible.

1 Chronicles 12: 32 —“Of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command.”

Esther 1:13 — “Then the king said to the wise men, which knew the times, (for so was the king’s manner toward all that knew law and judgment):”

***********************************************************

They are overcoming evil by even educating all who will open their ears and listen about the very nature of some of the most horrific atrocities ever committed on earth:

Proverbs 10:21 — “The lips of the righteous nourish many, but fools die for lack of sense.”

***********************************************************

And they are overcoming evil by helping folks to acquire the understanding of how to deal with difficult people and the wounds many of us carry in our souls.

Hosea 4:6 —“My people perish for the lack of knowledge…”
