The book of Exodus, chapter one, has these ominous words: “‘Look, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we; come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and it happen, in the event of war, that they also join our enemies and fight against us, and so go up out of the land.’ Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with their burdens.”
I just returned from Auschwitz, Poland—an unimaginably evil place where over one million people were murdered. Though the good in that society were more and mightier than the hellish minority leading this assault, for some strange reason, most stayed silent while the misguided tried to form a new society. We must learn from history and never stay passively silent when evil tries to take wrong and call it right.
My friend, it’s time for you and me to pray.
