Silent Compromise

It is cowardly not to stand up for your convictions. If you believe a thing is right and true, by all means, say so! The silent majority cannot change things unless they have the courage to stand up and be counted.
John speaks of a group of Jewish leaders who practiced silent compromise:
“Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue” (John 12:42).
Those Jewish leaders believed in Jesus but they compromised their faith by saying nothing. They did not want the disapproval of the Pharisees or to be cast out of the synagogue, so they kept silent. They were afraid.
All it takes for error to prevail is for those who know the truth to say nothing.
