We Cannot Be Silent
The following quote is taken from Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr.’s new book: We Cannot Be Silent; Speaking Truth to a culture redefining sex, marriage, and the very meaning of right and wrong.
“When it is demanded that Christians respond with compassion at the expense of truth, we must understand that any compassion severed from truth is false compassion and a lie against the truth. Scripture teaches that the truth is itself compassionate. The apostle Paul spoke of this in Romans 7 when he explained how the law revealed his sin so that he understood his sin by the indictment of the moral law. In the same way, Christians must affirm the compassion of truth in this troubled generation.”
“All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever” (1 Peter 1:24 – 25a, CSB).
The present generation will pass as have all former generations, but God’s word remains always the same. When Jesus returns in all of His glory He will be called “Faithful and True.” “Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war” (Revelation 19:11 CSB).
