Dare Not Be Silent

We are to praise our country when it does right. We are to preach to our country when it does wrong. God’s people dare not be silent.

Let me be very frank with you about politics and Christian involvement. Christians should not identify the Christian faith with Democrats or Republicans. We need to be free to tell both parties to repent and get right with God.

Christians will be civil, but we will not be silent. Nathan warned David. Elijah preached to Ahab. Eleazer warned Jehoshaphat. Daniel preached to Nebuchadnezzar. Moses warned Pharaoh. John the Baptist preached to Herod.

We must declare to any government under which we live: Whatever is morally wrong is not politically right. And as long as I am talking on this subject, let me add that as long as abortionists kill babies and doctors practice infanticide, I will not be silent.

  1. Amen and thank you for sharing. If we are bold enough to praise the leaders when they do good, then we must be able to speak out also when they are wrong.

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
