Silence is Cowardly

If we know God’s Truth
We must speak it boldly
Silence is cowardly
Apathy destroys slowly

Irreparable damage results
When we choose to ignore
The “little things” unaligned with God’s Word
Soon manifest and we will eventually abhor

Finding repugnant the state of affairs
In which we now live
All because we didn’t speak up
Satan now penetrates and gives

Fuel to the flaming arrows
His minions impale against our hearts
Snuffing out the truth and desire
God intended for His Believer’s to impart

With every brother, every sister
Every Father, Mother and friend
To live in harmony and peace
And with demons… not have to contend

But our apathy, lack of interest
Absence of obedience to God’s Word
Finds us in these reprehensible state of affairs
Which is now utterly absurd

Deviation from God’s Word
Might not have been the original intent
But careless thoughts and actions led to
The uprising of those against

All that is good and pure from God’s Word
His Ten Commands to keep order and peace
Our careless lack of interest allowed
Satan’s foothold to increase

Among the un-churched, among the un-learned
Among those that don’t know about God
But as Christians we are to testify so that
No one is fooled by defraud

It is our calling to speak God’s Truth’s
Until every ear has heard
The Gospel of Jesus Christ
Submitting their heart to His Authority and Word

Yes, as children of God
We must speak The Truth boldly
Silence is cowardly and
Apathy destroys slowly
