The Cost of Our Silence
Hide the light of Christ and retreat, or let it shine and expose the darkness; live an inconsequential life, or bear fruit that will last. If most Christians remain silent, fewer people will be saved, society will collapse, and we will continue to be part of the problem.
There are consequences when God’s people take the path of least resistance and back out of culture. One only needs to look at our society to see we are living with those consequences today.
- Why do you think so many Christians pursue comfort over commitment to Christ?
- Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by the darkness and moral decline in society today and wonder what happened to the salt and light?
- How have we reached a point where Christians who do preach the gospel and speak up about sin are called hateful, intolerant, or judgmental?
Christian in name only, America has become an epicenter for the culture war as too many of us keep ducking the issue of sin. Due to decades of Christians being silent, failing to preach the gospel and speak the truth in love, we’ve reached a tipping point in which political correctness refuses to coexist with religious freedom. Why do you think Christians who defend God’s Word are often called hateful, intolerant, or judgmental? There are consequences in this life and for eternity, when Christians take the path of least resistance. We cannot reverse the moral decline, but we can choose to stand for righteousness as we pray for revival and be the salt and light Jesus called us to be while we’re still here.
Hide the light of Christ and retreat, or let it shine and expose the darkness; live an inconsequential life, or bear fruit that will last. If most Christians remain silent, fewer people will be saved, society will collapse, and we will continue to be part of the problem. Dietrich Bonhoeffer said it best:
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless…”
David Fiorazo has an uncompromising, hard-hitting writing style overflowing with compassion for all people, and his perspective is soundly based upon the truth of God’s Word. His sense of urgency to warn the church about our silence cannot be overstated. He is one of my most articulate radio guests. I consider him one of the best “watchmen on the wall” sounding alarms today.

The Cost of Our Silence should be required reading for high school and college students, professing Christians, and perhaps most importantly, our pastors and church leaders. This book will open people’s eyes and motivate them to action.

David Fiorazo is an eloquent and excellent writer, challenging Christians to speak out and take action against the growing secular culture infiltrating our nation. His new book, The Cost of Our Silence, builds to a powerful conclusion and is a clarion call to all those concerned about the direction of our nation as well as the church in America.

I appreciate David Fiorazo’s thoughtful and passionate analysis concerning the moral and spiritual decline facing believers today. While many in the church waver under the pressures of secularism and unbiblical thinking, David is counted among the clear voices, enunciating God’s truth in these troubling times.

We live in dark times disguised as enlightenment. David Fiorazo not only identifies the reality of the underlying problem, he also gives his audience real hope in a world filled with false hopes. David is a modern day “voice in the wilderness.”
– Dr. James Langteau, Director of SE Asia, Wycliffe Associates
David Fiorazo lives his faith. His new book communicates biblical truth with an uncompromising passion and takes aim at the many “professing” Christians who refuse to acknowledge or oppose the evils ravaging society – and the church – in America today. A MUST READ.

David Fiorazo is a rare and refreshing voice for truth in an age of apostasy and deceit.
