Am I saying this now to win the approval of people or God? Am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be Christ’s servant (Gal. 1:10).
Swing open that closet door and tell the world who you are, and most people will applaud you. The one glaring exception to that is if you are loud and proud of your Christian faith. Very few Christians speak up for righteous living today. Recently Joe Biden described Vice President Pence as a decent man. People criticized him for such a thing, one actress in particular. He later retracted the statement and said, "There is nothing decent about being anti-LGBTQ rights, and that includes the Vice President." You get the drift, right? Your Biblical views are best kept in the closet because they are increasingly no longer tolerable in today's culture. Keep your mouth shut unless you are ready for public denouncement.
Take note reader of how unpopular it is to be a person of faith in the United States. Amy Coney Barrett has taken the liberal establishment by storm. What do they most dislike about her? She unashamedly holds a Christian world view. Her own words reverberate loud and clear: "I've endured attacks on my faith and family to serve my country." This is the first time in American history that a Supreme Court nominee is a woman who is openly pro-life. Our President is at the heart of this lifetime achievement.
The Church of Jesus Christ must rise. All those who live godly will suffer persecution. No one who has laid down their lives for Christ is above His Lord. Christ suffered because He did not compromise. He put it out there and suffered hate because of it. Something is amiss when we enjoy the Lord's blessings while maintaining a milk toast commitment to Him. You have a voice; raise it in righteousness and let the chips fall where they may. A life-altering experience of any kind is worth sharing much more the radical changes that Jesus Christ performed within you! We are in the decade of the mouth. Whose voices will we hear above the rest?
