Remaining silent on abominations is a sin

Scripture very clearly warns us against several abominations. Christians must raise their voice and cry out against such abominations. Otherwise, we make a mockery of God for destroying Sodom and Gomorrah. This post is for Christians who choose to remain silent on issues that are abominable without crying out against them.

Mark 8:38 “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”

If we are ashamed to stand for Christ and His Word in this adulterous and sinful generation, He will also be ashamed of us when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.

Witness remaining silent is guilty

Lev 5:1 ‘If a person sins in hearing the utterance of an oath, and is a witness, whether he has seen or known of the matter–if he does not tell it, he bears guilt.

The law clearly explains that when we are a witness but if we keep silent, we bear the guilt.

Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

If we claim ourselves to be a witness to Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, how can we remain silent to such abominations?

God will not spare if you don’t cry out

Ezek 9:4-5 and the LORD said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.” To the others He said in my hearing, “Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity.

God wants us to cry and sigh against all the abominations as we read during the destruction of Jerusalem in Ezekiel’s vision. Just as God spared only those who cried out, if we remain silent without crying out against this abomination, when God judges this nation, He will not spare us.

Remain silent and perish

Esth 4:14 “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

If we remain silent, relief and deliverance will arise for His people from another place but we will perish.

Conclusion

A witness remaining silent is guilty according to the law. How can we be witness to Christ if we don’t cry out? God will not spare us if we don’t cry out against abominations. If we remain silent, relief and deliverance will arise for His people from another place but we will perish. Therefore, let us cry out against abominations that are happening in this world.
