Stand Firm In Your Faith

If Christians are silent at our universities for fear of being disgraced; if believers are intimidated at work because of new laws that might keep religion out of the workplace; if a Christian nurse is silent about abortion because to speak out would put her job in jeopardy; in short, if we keep Christ to ourselves out of fear of reprisals, are we not taking our stand with those pastors in Germany who chose to close ranks with Hitler?  Is not our sin even greater since the consequences of our obedience to Christ are so minimal in comparison with what they faced?  Are we qualified to sit in judgment of the church in Germany if we ourselves have never lost a job or failed a course because we are Christians?
