The Silent Majority

Injustice is often celebrated because of the shout of silence. For a while, Truth is violently overthrown, exiled, or assassinated because its vanguards are too afraid to speak out. Our days are no different from the days when Ahab and Jezebel, actively aided by the silence of “the elders and nobles,” conspired to murder Naboth (1 Kings 21:1-16). Alas, reputations, prospects, and lives are often ruined because the voices of conscience are mute. NO, the silent majority are never silent! Their voices of apathy are louder than the courage of their convictions. And because they passively go along in order to get along or get ahead, the silent majority are worse than criminals.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
