Again and again an opportunity presents itself to speak for our Lord Jesus Christ, but we hold our peace. And what is true of us as individual believers seems to characterize and paralyze the whole church. What are the causes of our guilty silence? No doubt any answer to this question would tend to be an over-simplification, because the reasons are legion. But I believe there are four major causes. Either we have no compelling incentive even to try to speak, or we do not know what to say, or we are not convinced that it is our job, or we do not believe we shall do any good, because we have forgotten the source of power.
