上帝不僅會根據我們所說的來審判教會，還會根據我們沒說的來審判教會。在上帝的名和上帝的真理被玷污的時候，尤其是在我們的下ㄧ代，現在是教會不僅要保護和教導他們自己的孩子，而且還要勇敢地向世界宣講福音的真理 – 上帝的公義，上帝的憤怒，和祂的大愛！
約翰斯托特在他的《兩個世界之間 Between Two Worlds》一書中說：“
我們的任務是讓上帝啟示的真理從聖經中流出，進入當今人們的生活。 決心跨越鴻溝的新一代基督徒傳播者； 他們努力將上帝不變的話語與我們不斷變化的世界聯繫起來。
Isaiah encourages those who know God’s law to “fear not the reproach of man, nor be dismayed at their revilings”, for they are like grass that withers while God is the One who created the heavens and the earth! For too long the Church has fallen into the trap of fearing man rather than God, therefore not speaking up against sin, in order that we might avoid “the reproach of man”. We use the excuse that we are sharing the Gospel in an attempt to justify our silence; we try to appease the world regarding the practices that God has clearly stated that He hates.
The Church will be judged by God not only by what we say but also by what we do not say. In a time when God’s Name and God’s Truth is being defiled especially where our children are concerned, it is time for the Church not only to protect and teach their own children but also to speak boldly to the world the truth of the Gospel, of God’s justice, God’s wrath, and, at the same time, His great love!
In his book Between Two Worlds, John Stott said,
Our task is to enable God’s revealed truth to flow out of the Scriptures into the lives of the men and women of today. A new generation of Christian communicators who are determined to bridge the chasm; who struggle to relate God’s unchanging Word to our ever-changing world.
May those “who know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law” speak out for God because God is the One who is to be feared rather than man.
