Should we speak up or remain silent? What would God have us do?

Commentary By:  Gordon King

As believers in Jesus Christ are we to speak up when we see evil happening in the world around us?  Are we to shine a light into the darkness and expose the evils in the world?  Or are we to just shut our mouths and allow it to happen without saying a word or exposing it?  We should all know the answers to these questions, but I am assuming that there are actually many believers that don’t actually know the right answers and are doing just the opposite of what God has called us to do in this world.

John 1:5

“And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

Of course the preceding verse is speaking about Jesus Christ, however, as believers in Jesus Christ we are the children of light and the light resides within us.

Ephesians 5:8-11

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”

As children of light we are to expose the unfruitful works of darkness, this is what we as Christians are told to do in this world, it’s in the bible!

So when we see evil and wicked atrocities happening in this world then we are in fact told to speak up about them, not remain silent, but to expose them.  Even some unbelievers can see the deception, and some of them are even speaking up about it!

I just happened to stumble upon a Rumble video from a comedian who I don’t believe is a Christian, but who knows?  Anyway, this video is very telling of the times that we are living in, and also very telling of what will happen if we remain silent!  And if an unbeliever (I am assuming) can speak up about these things then how much more should we?

 The following Rumble video is from JP Sears, a comedian (whom I have never heard of before this), who has some very strong and valid points to make regarding us being silent while we are quickly loosing our rights and freedoms.  For the most part this video is well spoken, however, as a warning there are two points in which he uses some foul and inappropriate language, so if this offends you then please skip these segments (one at 4 minutes and 22 seconds, the second at 6 minutes and 24 seconds, from 6 minutes and 28 seconds is all advertisement).  I highly recommend that you watch this video, it’s very, very important and makes some excellent points!

12 Reasons NOT To Speak Up!

JP Sears, comedian on Rumble, this should wake you up!

We as believers must speak up and take a stand for righteousness, we must shine a light into the darkness.  The times are very dark and getting darker by the day, the wicked are tightening their grips with ever increasing force as quickly as they can.  And they will continue to do so if they are given free reign and not held accountable for their actions!

If we sit back and do nothing then we deserve what we get, we must stand against this tyranny and aggression, if not then by being silent we are agreeing to it and allowing it to happen!

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!
