Many have been so indoctrinated with the “don’t offend anyone” philosophy that even many Christians are afraid to speak up against moral and spiritual wrongs in this world. That thinking is not biblical. Christians should stand up and speak out on the issues of our time. Certainly the biblical teaching never intends the Christian to be purposefully rude and hurtful to anyone. We are to warn the world, however, of encroaching dangers and pitfalls. We have the spiritual eyes to see them coming, and we are to warn those that cannot see or understand them…. Getting rid of true Christianity, (God’s witnesses) does not diminish the truth it can only briefly quiet the conviction. We need to call sin what it is and not lessen its reproach. If we don’t speak up, who will?
J. Frank Norris said, “Whenever you find a preacher who takes the Bible allegorically and figuratively…that preacher is preaching an allegorical gospel which is no Gospel. I thank God for a literal Christ, for a literal salvation. There is literal sorrow, literal death, literal Hell, and, thank God, there is a literal Heaven.
