“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”

Psalm: Who will rise up for Me against evil or stand up for Me against workers of iniquity?

Ephesians 5:6, 11-13:

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.  [this is not a command for passivity]

12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.


Failure to speak against evil and passivity–WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY? And what did Dietrich Bonhoeffer say?


Isaiah 58:1: Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet,..show their transgression, and their sins


Ignoring the commands of the Bible by not crying out against sins and transgressions


When you quit protesting against sin you become a part of it. Isaiah 58:1


Praying against evil and evil men

Jeremiah 5:30-31–A Horrible Thing Is Committed In The Land; And My Prophets Prophesy Falsely




They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge. Jeremiah 5
