Speaking Truth With Courage

“If we serve our heavenly Father, then we should never fear anything or anybody.”[1] This statement was not spoken by a pastor or denominational leader. This was from Hungarian President, Katalin Novak, speaking at Ave Maria University. In her speech entitled, “The Calling of the Christian in Politics: What We Can Achieve” she also focused on the importance of life, beginning at conception and defining marriage as between one man and one woman. Overall the solidarity of the family is seen as the foundation of a strong culture and nation. Therefore, being willing to stand up for these truths and speak against the lies of the communistic regime that tried for forty-five years to break down family values in Hungary was the key to overcoming and winning back their Christian values.

In the United States we are facing the same assault against the family from many fronts. The current administration, public education, LGBTQ+ activists, etc. are all uniting in an effort to tear families apart. Fathers are being stripped of their masculinity, far too many school boards are insisting that they have the final say in how to raise and educate our children. If a person chooses to stand up and question these, they are ridiculed and threatened to lose their jobs, their businesses…to be “cancelled.”

But the tide may be turning. We are seeing, hearing and experiencing more and more people that are willing to stand against these evils. In the city of Colorado Springs a group is successfully working at the school board level to eliminate books that are obscene.[2] In Florida colleges and universities are banned from using state funding to pay for DEI programs (diversity, equity and inclusion).[3] And parents are not backing down in their law suits against school boards for violating their children’s rights.[4]

As we join our brothers and sisters here in the U.S.A. and around the world, let us go forth with the courage that comes in speaking truth and knowing that God goes before us. A few words from just one book of the Bible assures us of His presence and His victory on our behalf. “The Lord your God has given you the land. Go up and take possession of it as the Lord…told you.” -Deuteronomy 1:20 “Do not be terrified, do not be afraid of them. The Lord your God …will fight for you.” Deuteronomy 1:29 “When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God will be with you.” -Deuteronomy 20:1) “Do not be fainthearted or afraid; do not be terrified or give way to panic… for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight with you against your enemies to give you victory.” Deuteronomy 20:3-4

When you hear something being spoken that is false; speak up, speak truth. When a company or school board makes a wrong, even evil decision, stand up against it with truth and speak for what is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy. -Philippians 4: 8 God will honor it and stand with you.

“Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.” Psalm 1:5. “The Lord is my light and my salvation-whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life-of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1.
