Quoting Quiverfull: Silence in Abuse

by Boz Tchividjian, Executive Director of Grace – Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment posted at Religious News Source – A Church Silent in the Face of Evil is No Church at All

GRACE was recently fired from it’s investigation into allegations of sexual abuse at Bob Jones University.

There is nothing silent about being silent

A silent church will always protect perpetrators over God’s little ones.  A silent church will always abandon the very ones God holds precious.  In fact, a silent church is no church at all. God was certainly not silent in the face of evil, neither should we.
