Is Prayer Alone Enough?


By: Joseph M. Lenard

A piece for my fellow Christians and those willing to join with me in/on this ChristiTutionalist TM (as I coined such) journey/movement… At the end-of-the-day, as the saying goes, TLB is a Political site not a Religious site, so I fear some may feel this Preachy and go too far. However, as from the Quotations March 9th TLB piece: “Our [United States] constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams. The following adapted from (expounded upon to include some TLB exclusive additions to) my “Is Prayer Alone Enough” chapter of my “ChristiTutionalist TM Politics 2” book (just dropped June 1st 2024) this is also a political issue/question also…

It is not good or normal “practice” to ask a question in a headline and then answer said question right at the top of the article rather than at end deliver the “conclusion” however those of you that read (or listen to my podcast) regularly know that I often do not do “normal” or “traditional” (despite most everything in how/why I conduct my Life is Conservative, ChristiTutionalist TM, tradition, based). So, yes, we should Pray but also remember “Shall Be Known By Our Fruits” clear meaning must get off our Knees, get up, go out, actually engage in DOING THINGS that can make an impact/difference on/in the World we Live in.

Pray? Yes, absolutely, however… Actually do things too…

[As I also spoke on/about during WAAM Radio ART May 11th Show]

Pray? Yes, that’s nice, but 2 Chronicles 7:14 says “and turn from their wicked ways” which obviously commands an action not just words – we are given free-will and like the Rush (Canadian Rock-trio Group, not Limbaugh the Radio guy) tune says: “if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.” In other words: you did nothing to stop evil but whine!

Remember too: “Shall Be Known By Fruits” not Virtue-Signaling and pretending are above it all (those “hubris/pride” Scriptures semi-relate here).

Obviously, and again, TLB is a primarily “Political discussions site” (not to try and put words in the mouths of the site Founders/Creators, but at least as I understand it) vs BeforeItsNews (which I also write for, and indeed now deals in categories of everything from Conspiracy, UFOs, as well as Faith/Christian issues it was originally founded as/for) so let me pivot back to the Worldly/Earthly from the Religious/Spiritual/Moral and remind the Quote: “All required Evil Prevail, Good Peoples Do Nothing!

[Repeated from ChristiTutionalistTM Politics (book first edition)…] There are supposed Christians estimated to the tune of 30-50 million not even Registered to Vote let-alone (another 10-30 million Registered that don’t even Vote or) who refuse to get off their hind-sides in any way to do a darn thing to change our Nation’s downhill slide (at least, “decline” in the minds of those of us on The Right and want a #ROAR (#RestoreOurAmericanRepublic) back from Leftward regressive (not Progressive) march toward Leftist governance of past (300, 700, beyond, years back when all governance was Leftist Ruling Elites over masses based). They (the lazy, looking for excuses, in-my-opinion) cling to 2 Chronicles 7:14 and ignore all other Biblical contextual calls for actual action (talked about in a part 2 also to the previously linked 2C714 piece).

Sadly they, in-my-opinion, are as bad as the scum as they just sit around and whine about (Virtue-Signaling online, is not virtue but vice), just coasting expecting and entitled in a different sense; and don’t expect (as “Known by Fruits” (Your Fruits, actions you take to Sow and grow/Reap something — refer back to that Rush tune quotation; certainly Rush Rock Group not Bible Prophets, but that line prophetic none-the-less)) ever be Judged (read the rest of the Bible’s “Judgement” scriptures beyond the often mis-quoted, lie by omission, Matthew 7 (as more to it than just the first 7 words many cite and leave rest out))?

Remember, inaction is an action unto itself too – feeling they are aloof and Holier-than-all (hubris/pride) to ever be held accountable for their idleness (as all that required for Evil prevail is good people do nothing [whole chapter dedicated to that in the original CTP book]).

And like I say, did so again on WAAM (1600 Ann Arbor Michigan) Radio Saturday April 15th 2023, as I was on with Bruce Fleury (Abolitionists RoundTable Show 9 am ET (primary host Phil Stargell was out)), compare and contrast the #Fascicrats (which I do not say hyperbolically – all the factual details in © 2018 piece) Party Platform with that of the NSDAP.

In-my-opinion, the last “reasonable” Democrat was J. F. K. who is likely rolling in his grave these days as to what that Party has become (but let’s be clear the corruption was rampant back then too, as the Chicago Mob often boasted about “delivering Chicago” and thereby Illinois to “give” J. F. K. the Presidency; and then “potentially” (some highly “allege”) had a part in him being Assassinated. As well as hero M. L. K. Jr (who likely has a special place in Heaven for his “Content of Character” line in his “I Have A Dream” speech alone)). Use DuckDuckGo (or GIBIRU, not biased Google that will try steer you away from these facts) to bring up a historically accurate copy of The Communist Manifesto, The NSDAP (the 1930′s Nazi-Socies) Platform, and today’s Democrat Party Platform — and see for yourself they are one and the
same! Oh, sure, today’s Fascicrats (see too: Originalist Federalists vs Today’s Fasci-Federalists (part of which is reprinted in the “Flashbacks” Chapter of my first ChristiTutionalist
TM book)) use more flowery, often vague or twisted language/words because they have to hide their intent; but it is all one and the same.

Then bring up the Magna-Carta, The Declaration Of Independence of USA, the U. S. Constitution, and the GOP (yes, spare me the Uni-Party dodge, I will touch on that again in a bit, why aren’t YOU (if indeed you are not) a Delegate and fighting for the GOP “Constitutional and Conservative”) Platform, and see how they are the same. Which, though, you will never hear me saying all Republicans are great and about preserving our great and most unique Republic – there are CINOs (Conservatives In Name Only) and RINOs (Republicans In Name Only, but obviously “fair minded” people can have some varying degree of difference in definition of what a “real Republican” is) as bad as Fascicrats but the direction of the Parties could not be clearer!

Spare us all the tired Uni-Party bull excuse for laziness, of your own idleness and lack of any real involvement in Party operations/processes (related/discussed in CTP S1E18 “Odds and Ends” episode. Yes, #CINOs, #RINOs, #Fascicrats (as discussed in old RedState / Townhall (whom I used to write “Diaries” (their variation on “blog”) for) piece too of mine © 2009, just all at different pace, are destroying the USA.

Again, spare me the “there is no difference” bull-excrement. Look in a mirror and ask: What have YOU done regarding your contention? If the answer is “nothing really” then get off your butt and become a Delegate and help make the GOP great again.

Of course there is a whole chapter in this book [that would be, ChristiTutionalist TM Politics 2 this is “borrowed” from LOL] dedicated to some Quotations, but let me paraphrase (or adapt) another great one here – again I say yes Pray but to do/act: “Rage, RAGE, against the dying of the Light, Rage too against the dying of our Free Republic.”

My friends bottom-line is Prayer alone is not enough (yes, I shouldn’t have given away SPOILER at the top the answer, LOL). We must proclaim and profess our works/deeds in the name of Jesus Christ and to be a “channel of his Peace” (Peace Prayer of St. Francis) – which as I stated in “Acknowledgements and Dedications” section of my “ChristiTutionalist TM Politics 2” book (as well other of my books): through whom I/you/we can do all things, and without whom all is lost;  and we be a purveyor and messenger of “God’s Will” rather than our own (though, yes, we were/are given Free-Will, you are free to do Evil (based on almost anyone’s definition, whether Religious based or not; like even self-proclaimed Atheist Penn of Penn and Teller speaks to and I’ve held up Penn as a great Secular example in other written pieces and on my CTP Shows) and yes set-up to do so again soon (like in the next paragraph, LOL)).

We must Pray for those (like a Penn, professed Atheist, of Penn and Teller fame) that while may see the “value” (as Penn has) in the tenants of “Religion” as just being a matter of “Common-Sense” and “just being a good social being on this planet” (as a whole, but not necessarily Christianity specifically) that he/they see the Light. However, while great for “morality” of this Earth – there is no eternal Salvation without our Lord Jesus Christ. That indeed “Shall Not Steal” and “Shall Not Murder Innocents” (later changed in translations from original Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin, Greek, texts) worthy on own merits for society, again without Jesus Christ (our Lord, our God, our Saviour (we can and do at times need Earthly “savior” (different spelling, almost really a different word, for a reason, as in a First-Responder saving our Life when in/under our Worldly realm threat) too, as I discuss in my Terror Strikes: Coming Soon to a City Near You book)) as having commanded such loses one’s eternal Soul.

LOOK BACK: The last several TLB pieces and correlating/corresponding CTP Shows (and planned going forward from May 4th – June 29th)…

  • May 4 – S1E46: Issue Never the Issue (#Revolutiontards useful-idiots)

  • May 11 – S1E47: Continued Left-wing Violence

  • May 18 – S1E48: Let Them Keep Pushing, Generational Shift Occurring

  • May 25 – S1E49: Mother’s Day retrospective (Ex Post Facto piece, just as last year’s Memorial Day and 4th-Of-July pieces were)

  • June 1 – S1E50: Slaves To State

  • June 8 – S1E51: Is Prayer Alone Enough? [also note: CTP2 dropping]

  • June 15 – S1E52: Rising Tides Lift All Boats

  • June 22 – S2E53: TLB-Talk relaunch

  • June 29 – S2E54: Speculations and What Ifs

Lastly, an aside, on that whole THE LEFT are #FASCICRATS thing – This is NOT the 1930’s (it many cases, WORSE than when and) where German Nazi Socies battled Moscow backed Commies for control over Germany (remember Stalin invaded Finland long before Hitler invaded anyone and invaded Poland along with Hitler/Nazis – STOP, don’t go there, NO, not a defense of Hitler and/or Nazis, not “apologizing” for anyone nor engaging in DODGE, just outlining some FACTS that many leave out of WWII History and that if Hitler had not done what he did then WWII still would have happened against Stalin/Soviets reality expansionism (instead as Churchill rightly outlined they became a MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE at time necessity to fight Hitler/Nazis and NOT “Enemy of my Enemy IS MY FRIEND” stupidity as previously I wrote about here on TLB))…. Today, they are all ONE AND SAME a CommieFasciSocies blend – no real difference, cooperating for DESTRUCTION OF USA.
