This Is It

23Sep13

“ … with the great evil of abortion, silence is simply not an option.
Nor is inactivity.
We are all called to be salt and light here.
We are all called to stand up for the defenseless,
the innocent, and the oppressed.

Each of us can have a role to play here.
So stop making excuses and start asking God what you can do.
Or at the very least, ask God what you can say on behalf of the unborn. But know that refusal to speak or to act is in fact sin for you.
Let me close with the words of Bonhoeffer.

He paid with his life for his beliefs, so he has some real credibility here. He said this: ‘Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.’”

— Bill Muehlenberg
