Preface: During a time of prayer regarding the pressure many pastors and Christians are feeling to be silent regarding truth, the following bold declaration stirred in my heart and was originally shared on April 20th, 2014.
I AM A CHRISTIAN AND I WILL NOT BE SILENT!
I am not a racist
I am not a bigot
I am not a homophobe
I am not a hater
I am a Christian who loves God and the sinner too much to be silent.
I will not be silent when I know multitudes are racing towards an eternal hell!
I will not be silent and allow Satan to deceive the whole world.
I will not be silent knowing that sin destroys lives, families, and nations.
I will not be silent knowing that the wages of sin is still death.
I will not be silent knowing that I can save even just one from the clutches of sin and hell!
TO BE SILENT…..
To be silent would be the greatest demonstration of selfishness I know.
I will not be silent, but
I will speak the truth in love,
I will shout it out from the rooftops.
So, go ahead and call me names, but I will not change!
I will love you even more and I will pray for you,
but I will not be silent!
For Christ paid too high a price,
and He shall receive the reward of His sacrifice!
