Charles Carrin Ministries

Thank you for praying for my broken arm! I am doing very well!. All pain is gone!  I have returned to my full writing schedule and should be completely normal in a few weeks. Please continue to pray for the ministry and its far-reaching effects. I get e-mails almost daily from pastors in Africa, Pakistan, India. other far-off places, who have been helped by my writing. Some of these articles are available in French, Spanish, Chinese, and Japanese--perhaps other languages also.  That is God's grace! Thank you for your prayers and support!

Comments On Today’s Politics by Cecero
     In the history of the Roman Empire no other speaker surpassed Marcus Tullius Cicero, 115-53 BC.   His writings on politics, philosophy, other topics, still influence Western thought today.  As an example, read his comments about a nation’s betrayal from within, remembering that this was spoken before the birth of Christ.  He said:

A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly, but the traitor moves against those within the gate freely. The traitor speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and wears their face and their arguments. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear."
  —Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)

Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. ... Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new, wonderful good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious."
  —Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 B.C.)
