“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” ~~~ Edmond Burke
Can a person justify keeping silent in the face of evil simply to preserve their own skin from attack? I have struggled with this question. I have been watching and studying for years. I have experienced abuses and injustice personally and have watched it happen to others. People I love have been deeply scarred. Only recently have I been freed to open my mouth, and yet still I have wanted to wait – knowing eventually, if I dare to speak out, I will draw fire. But I can’t just sit by and do nothing. I am taking steps to position myself to be a constructive help for Christians who have experienced abuse and whom the church has failed. But there’s also a measure of avoidance in thinking I can wait to speak out until I’ve finished school and have professional credentials.So, I have to take the leap and do what I can to make a difference. If I can help, I will. If not, I will at least not be silent, and thereby complicit, in not exposing evil.
