Silent Majority

Will Silent Majority Remain Silent?

This is a question resonating throughout and within the Evangelical Christian community.  Is it possible, they ask, that God is sitting on the sidelines as a result of America’s practice of complacency, apathy and immorality? One thing is for certain, America is starting to resemble the great civilizations past that fell not as a result of war but from rotting within because they elected to eat, drink and be merry and rebel against God.

Dangerous Minorities Evoke Misplaced Fears

The Communist Soviet Union ruled the population with an iron hand, evoking fear by their very presence, dictating every move made and even every thought. Yet, those Communists who bullied and ruled, only encompassed 10 percent of the whole country! A minority. Yet they spoke and moved with such confident authority that one would dare not challenge them in any way.

Life was such behind the Iron Curtain that when Joseph Stalin spoke, everyone in the area was required to be there. At the end of the speech the audience applauded loudly. The applause lasted 15 minutes or more as the visible uniformed authorities scanned the crowd with piercing eyes to see who would be the first to stop applauding. That one would be immediately arrested, pummeled, and hauled off to the Gulag.

With these fear tactics, life was impossible with threatening consequences no matter what you did. Yet again, 90 percent of the Russian population was NOT Communist. Ninety per cent, the MAJORITY of the population, cowed before that 10 % who had managed to brow-beat them into submission.
