“What is worse than speaking the truth? Keeping quiet. God has told His people to speak the truth, to the believers and the unbelievers and to do so boldly. The Apostle Paul and Stephen stood up and gave us an example of how we should stand up and speak truth about the evildoers and that is what we must do regardless of the cost. Thanks be God that He has given us mouths to speak and the strength to do so boldly. For those that are offended ask yourselves this question, “does the truth hurt you because you are holding to a doctrine, belief or practice that is not Scriptural? Examine yourselves.
These are the things that you shall do. Each man speak the truth to his neighbor. Judge with truth and justice for peace in your gates. Zec 8:16
But I ask, not being present, that I may be bold with the confidence which I think to be daring against some, who thought of us as walking according to flesh. For though walking about in flesh, we do not war according to flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, pulling down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought into the obedience of Christ; and having readiness to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. Do you look at things according to appearance? If anyone has persuaded himself that he is Christ’s, let him think this again as to himself, that as he is Christ’s, even so we are Christ’s. 2 Cor. 10:2-7” [Jacy, November 2006, “Truth Report Now”]
