A Treaty with the Devil

October 19, 2018

Would you make a treaty with the Devil? It is a silly question, isn’t it? You would never do anything like that. And yet, nations do it all the time.

We could argue that no one would knowingly make a deal with the devil because he is a known liar and a sworn adversary. You wouldn’t believe him. You know he is your enemy. There is no way. The only reason he would make a deal with you is to do you harm. It would be to gain an advantage, to lull you into making a mistake, and eventually to do you in.

In reading Winston Churchill’s “The Gathering Storm” I was struck by how much the nations risked on the treaties they trusted to prevent another terrible world war. I think it is fair to say that we sometimes find ourselves worn down by the world. And so, while we would never make an outright deal with the devil, we are all too willing to make compromises with him, and for the same reasons nations made deals with Hitler.

About Born to Win

Born to Win is the radio ministry of Christian Educational Ministries (CEM).  CEM is a service ministry with two major goals, first, to share the Gospel with the world and make disciples for Jesus Christ and secondly to teach those disciples of Jesus all that He commanded His disciples to do (Matthew 28:19-20).  Paul later expanded on this in his last letter to Timothy: 

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be proficient and equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:17 from KJV and NRSV).

CEM was founded to serve the public, individual Christians of every stripe, and community based churches in every tradition. We are an independent, nondenominational ministry. 

About Ronald L. Dart

Ronald L. Dart is a gifted teacher of the Word of God.  People around the world have come to appreciate Ron’s easy style, his non-combative approach to explaining the Bible, and the personal, almost one-on-one method of explaining what’s going on in the world in the light of the Bible. People say they get hooked on Ron’s depth of insight into the Bible and appreciate the unique gift for clarity and simplicity that enable him to hold an audience. His listeners don’t want to miss a word this broadcaster has to say and they want their community to hear it as well.

 Mr. Dart was born to young parents on a farm just south of Harrison, Arkansas.  His father worked for the railroad and also sang bass with the Melody Four Quartet.  He started school in a one room schoolhouse in Gaither, Arkansas and finished high school in Houston, Texas where he met his wife to be, Allie Driver.  

He joined the Navy in September of 1952 and earned the rating of petty officer first class in four years.  After the Navy, Ron attended Hardin Simmons University in Abilene, Texas for two years, and Ambassador College for two years, getting a bachelor’s degree.

Ron served as a pastor of a church, and returned to college to get his Master’s Degree. Then he went to the University of Texas, in Austin and did work towards his doctor’s degree in communications. It is through his continued studies in theology and  communications that Ron’s gift for teaching the Word of God became evident.  He has taught Old Testament Survey, Epistles of Paul and public speaking.  He has CDs of sermons he has given on virtually every book in the Bible. After retiring from teaching and church administration in 1995 he started Christian Educational Ministries and the Born to Win radio program.
