The "un-churched" look to Christians for a delineation of what is right and what is wrong. They know right from wrong as well as we who belong to Jesus Christ, and when they see Christians dodge the responsibility to call evil for the evil that it is, we who call ourselves Christians have effectively sabotaged their spiritual experience. Ezekiel 33:8 should be a red flag to us: "When I say to the wicked, O wicked man, you shall surely die; if you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand." Who and what purpose have we served by our silence in the face of this responsibility before God?
More specifically, the silence of the Christian Church in the face of continuing rampant evil, lack of integrity, and public shame even among the Christian Church is appalling. Jesus is the Prince of Peace, but He also took a whip and drove the unfaithful out of His Father's house. We are closer today to the end times than we were yesterday, and we are already seeing lampstands removed from churches (Rev. 2:5). When we do not solve the problem with the responsibility to share light that God has put in our hands, God will solve the problem. Almighty God is going to do what God is going to do.
