They Are Just Doing Their Job! Whose Fault Is It?
April 7, 2014
“The Laws of God and of man have been violated, and the guilty must not go unpunished.”
– President Harry Truman, May 1945, Nuremburg Trials “Tyranny on Trial”
Interestingly enough, back in 1945, during the Nuremberg Trials, when the war criminals were rounded up by a world tribunal to bring forth justice concerning those who were responsible for the murder of 12 million people (mainly Hitler’s regime), when it was time to answer for their crimes, the accused stated that they were “just doing what they were ordered to do,” regardless if it was legal or illegal, not only in the sight of man, but also before a Just and Holy God (Proverbs 21:3).
The real question here should be: Who were the real criminals? Those who committed the crimes, or those who let them commit the crimes? Imagine with me for a moment if the people in Germany would have dealt with these criminals before their crimes commenced – how different would the outcome have been (Deuteronomy 28:63)?
Let me show you how history is repeating itself right here in America.
When I look across the country, as I do on a daily basis, and see things taking place in America, I can’t help but wonder why we are where we are today and who is to blame for the position that we as a people are in.
First, I know we cannot blame the professed church in America for holding back the Word of the Lord concerning homosexuality, abortion and government corruption because they do not want to offend anyone. After all, while Christ was being delivered up for the guilt (sins) of mankind, it was the religious hypocrites crying, “We have no king but Caesar!” (John 19:15)
We cannot blame the homosexuals who are being used to upend the Constitution of the United States, to make way for Shariah law. After all, that is the way they were born.
We cannot blame the abortionists who murder over 4,000 babies a day across America. After all, it was the Supreme Court of the United States that sanctioned the victims’ murder under the guise of “choice.”
I know that we cannot blame those in government, namely the corrupt politicians who knowingly, at every step of the way, willfully violate the U.S. Constitution, and who on a daily basis trample our rights that hundreds of thousands of our forefathers, grandpas, fathers, uncles, cousins, brothers and sisters have fought, bled and died to give us.
I know that we cannot blame the teachers across the country that teach what they know is illegal, immoral and un-American in our classrooms under every guise: “No Child Left Behind,” “International Baccalaureate” or even “Common Core.” After all, they have to hold onto their jobs.
We certainly cannot blame the 86 percent of the parents who claim they are Christians, patriots, or conservatives and are dropping their children off at school gates to be illegally indoctrinated by the federal government, for they are just doing what everyone else is doing (10th Amendment).
Or what about those in the state-run media who do what they are told regardless of the information broadcast, whether it is true or not? We cannot blame them either, for they are just following orders on what to report.
You know, this mentality sounds all too familiar. The Nazis during the Nuremburg Trials said they were just doing their job, just following orders.
No questions, no moral conviction, no standing against that which violates God and His Laws. Has America taken on the same mentality?
It has been said that, “A nation whose citizens refuse to see and investigate the facts, who refuse to believe that their government and their media will routinely lie to them and fabricate a reality contrary to verifiable facts, is a society that chooses and deserves the police state dictatorship it is going to get.” How true!
So, I ask, who is to blame? The American people who let them do it!
