Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Crowd pressures have unconsciously conditioned our minds and feet to move to the rhythmic drumbeat of the status quo. Many voices and forces urge us to choose the path of least resistance, and bid us never to fight for an unpopular cause and never to be found in a minority of two or three.”
Spiritually speaking, Christians are sometimes urged not to speak out on unpopular issues – issues like abortion, homosexuality, denominationalism, and etc. The faithful are sometimes ridiculed for speaking out against brethren who are not standing in the old paths, or against those who are setting forth uncertain sounds in their writings and teachings. We as God’s people have an obligation to voice our disapproval of sin and every false way. We must be strong and courageous in standing against immorality and falsehood. When good men keep silent we allow the evil to reign. Do not be afraid to be of the minority who will speak out against the evils of our day. Let the Christian’s voice be heard! Remember, “Ye are of God, my little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). Therefore, “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 3).
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
