More Spineless Wonders

Do you know why we keep losing the many battles we find ourselves in, be it the culture wars or the battle for truth or what have you? A good part of the reason is the spineless wonders who claim to be on the Lord’s side. They are actually a bunch of woosies and weenies who don’t seem to know the first thing about warfare, battle, and actually showing a bit of backbone.

They will utterly collapse in a heap – and chew you out like mad – if you even dare to use words like “spineless wonder”. The world is going to hell, souls are being swept away into a lost eternity, society has become an open sewer, and all these pansy Christians can do is whine about someone using the word “spineless wonder”!

backboneWell guess what: they are spineless wonders. If the only thing that is going to stir them up is a mildly strong bit of language, while the whole world is sliding into the abyss, then no wonder we are losing. These little precious ‘girlie men’ as Schwarzenegger put it, are losing the war all by themselves.

They will not lift a finger or say a word about all the evil exploding all around us, but they will come out of hibernation to write you a message when you dare to use a bit of forceful language. Well, to be honest, I have had a gutful of these delicate little flowers.

They are usually doing nothing for the Kingdom, but are happy to waste time blasting those who are. In my books they are nothing but Pharisees. And I get this happening all the time. These little girlie men will blow a moral gasket over a colourfully-worded expression, but will do nothing to save the unborn from the slaughter, etc.

Folks like this are the reason why the various secular left militants are winning one battle after another. These invertebrate pansies could not be bothered over the destruction of marriage, or the war against the family, but they will get all wound up – in true Pharisee fashion – over words that are a bit stronger than cotton wool.

Consider the latest example of this which just appeared elsewhere. This little delicate flower really was offended by my words, and took the time to make a stink about it:

“cowardly, compromised and carnal Christians” “their cowardice and betrayal” “compromised and spineless wonders” Harsh and a little Judgemental and not very loving…

To which the only obvious reply I could give was this:

“white-washed tombs” “you hypocrites!” “you brood of vipers” “you snakes!” Harsh and a little Judgemental and not very loving…

These foolish Pharisees really think they can be more loving than Jesus. Indeed, if Jesus walked the earth today, these same spineless wonders would be rebuking him, insisting that it is unloving and judgmental to talk this way! They actually think they are more Christlike than Christ!

As I have written elsewhere, Jesus was constantly using less than flattering language. He was time and time again using very strong, very harsh, very coarse, and very critical language. He simply did not hold back here. I recently did a count and found at least 65 occasions in the four gospels alone where Jesus let ’em have it, dishing out very strong words of rebuke, of judgment, of chastisement.

See here for more on this:

It did not bother Jesus in the least to use such harsh and forceful language. Yet we have so many weenie Christians today who will faint if they hear this kind of talk. Puh-leeese, spare me. Away with these babies who are such weak, effeminate and worthless warriors for the Kingdom.

Give me men who will tell it like it is – just like Jesus did, or Paul, or so many other great saints. Away with the woosie babies who think they are so spiritual when they are really just cowardly dandelions who need to get their act together.

We are in a war. It is time some real men came to the fore, instead of all these delicate pansies who would likely jump at the sight of their own shadow. We will get nowhere with such cry babies. We desperately need warriors now, not wimps.

As I have often pointed out before, it is most interesting to see who tops the list of those who will receive the judgment of God as recorded in Revelation 21:8: the cowardly. We don’t need cowards at this important time in history – we need men and women of steel who will stand strong and resist the enemy while advancing the Kingdom.

And if we could just get believers to stop majoring in minors and concentrate on the real issues at hand, we would be making a whole lot more progress here. A bit of backbone would certainly do the church wonders. As Leonard Ravenhill put it: “It’s going to demand a lot of courage before too long— to really live and maintain the true Christian life according to the Word of the Living God.”

Or as Tozer pleaded: “It is true that the church has suffered from pugnacious men, but she has suffered more from timid preachers who would rather be nice than right. The latter have done more harm if for no other reason than that there are so many more of them. I do not think, however, that we must make our choice between the two. It is altogether possible to have true love and courage at the same time.”

  1. Strong words and even stronger leadership is a definite need. The ease with which the ‘kind hearted’ can be suborned to do the work of the Great Enemy has been alive and well for too long. The fire and brimstone message is not only rarely heard from most church leaders but they themselves are far too ‘kind’ to those who need criticism and correction.

    I am a Catholic. I am pleased to see Michael Voris at Church Militant TV sending very strong criticism with far tougher words that ‘spineless wonders’. He aims them directly at the senior Bishops and Cardinals who have chosen the path of career over the stony uphill road of saving souls and leading their flocks away from the Abyss. More warriors are needed.

  2. Essential Christian doctrine tells us that Jesus was a MAN. He came in the flesh. We should therefore expect that he has all the PARTS of a man: INCLUDING TESTICLES.

    The Body of Christ needs to find theirs.

  3. “Onward Christian soldiers -marching as to war” indeed.

    “Play time” is over. Time to take a STAND..not a sit.

    Thank you, Bill…we need more REAL men… like you !

  4. “…..And if we could just get believers to stop majoring in minors and concentrate on the real issues at hand, we would be making a whole lot more progress here. A bit of backbone would certainly do the church wonders….”

    Fine let’s have it with them!

    The Knights Templar rode knee deep in bodies throughout their Crusades, and they more than matched their opposition with the weapons of the day too.

    You’d think then that today’s ‘regular Christians’ wouldn’t be too scared to pick up pen, mouse or mobile to fight the battles of today – but they are. The reason being, as soon as they have said ‘anything negative’ in the past they have repeatedly been told they are bigots who ply hate speech. The government and media ‘publicly punish’ Christians, or anybody for that matter, for doing so. So too does business, as peoples jobs are on the line, just look at league; the media stay around till someone is punished to the complete satisfaction of a disaffected group; by having to endorse their view no less! Unionists and lawyers stay around too – but in the regular workplace. People, including school children have been conditioned to say nothing at all that could be ‘perceived’ as being negative, anywhere. If in doubt shut up!

    Except for politics. Christians are in parliament but they have been divided amongst the Caesars – today’s parties. They do however speak out – only sort of. They have it very very hard. [as you’ve said Bill]

    Christians do need to put pen to paper in the ballot box for a Christian party – so as to be a concentration of our forces to divide the complacent ‘enablers’ – the Caesars themselves. Or they can pick up a sword.

    I read you daily. Thanks for your good work Bill. God Bless.

  5. Hey Bill, you’re spot on here. If it’s good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for you. Keep stirring the pot.

  6. Thank you Bill for giving Christian leadership and encouragement on these issues.

    Let me add my name to those who support you.

  7. A voice of reason, a light of tenacity in a world of darkness.

    I agree with you friend; you’ve written a great article. To be honest, I was beginning to lose hope in the majority of Christians (and to an large extend still have), especially the leadership, regardless of denomination.

    We are losing many battles on many fronts, but we should never give up this war, it’s our sacred duty not to.
