“If I could, I would put this book into the hands of every Christian in America.”
—Dr. David Jeremiah
In We Will Not Be Silenced, Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer prepares you to live out your conviction against a growing tide of hostility. Gain a better understanding of nonbelievers' legitimate hurts and concerns regarding issues like racism, sexism, and poverty - and identify the toxic responses secular culture disguises as solutions. In the process, you'll see how you can show compassion and gentleness to those outside of the faith without affirming their beliefs.

10 REASONS WHY CHRISTIANS SHOULD VOTE
2. Voting recognizes the equality of all people and their right to speak and be heard. (Deuteronomy 10: 17-19)
3. It is one way that we can obey God’s command to seek the good of those around us and our nation as a whole. (Jeremiah 29: 5-6)
4. It shows that we care deeply about who our leaders are as we are urged to offer prayer and intercession on their behalf. (1 Timothy 2: 1, 2)
5. It is a simple yet significant way we can do something about politics in our nation. ‘All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing’, Edmund Burke. (Psalms 34: 14)
6. It makes a difference the way a grain of salt makes a difference, and that is how we are to influence our society for good. (Matthew 5: 13)
7. It is a privilege not to be taken for granted. Those of us who reap the benefits of living in a constitutional republic should play a part in preserving the principles of that republic.
8. Not voting is a form of voting, as it will influence the outcome. We need to take responsibility for our actions, as well as our lack of actions. (Luke 10: 25-37)
9. Voting has biblical precedence for example Acts 14: 23 describes that the early Christians elected elders by voting.
10. Voting is part of our stewardship to use all the resources we have been given in ways that honor God; to waste a vote is to squander a gift. (Matthew 25: 26-28)
