The Cost of Our Silence: Consequences of Christians Taking the Path of Least Resistance

The Cost of Our Silence: Consequences of Christians Taking the Path of Least Resistance

David Fiorazo

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…”

How Can I Be Blessed?

How Can I Be Blessed?

R.C. Sproul

Summary

The Bible is clear that true blessing is only found in the presence of God and in His kingdom. Some of the Bible’s clearest teaching about life in the kingdom of God is found in the Sermon on the Mount. It is there that we find the Beatitudes, a series of promises of blessing. In How Can I Be Blessed?, Dr. R.C. Sproul explores these sayings in order to clearly explain what they mean for Christians and to hold up the glorious promise of life in God’s kingdom.

Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret (Moody Classics)

Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secret (Moody Classics)

Dr. and Mrs. Howard Taylor

A spiritual biography of the “father of modern missions,” Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secret poses the question: What empowered Hudson Taylor’s ministry in China? The answer: a fierce faith that believed God truly would fulfill the promises in His Word. Written by the missionary statesman’s son and daughter-in-law, this book is intended for Christians who “need and long for just the inward joy and power that Hudson Taylor found.” Hudson Taylor’s secret, it turns out, is available to any who call on Christ’s name.

“An easy, non-self-denying life will never be one of power,” Taylor said. “Fruit-bearing involves cross-bearing. There are not two Christs–an easygoing one for easygoing Christians, and a suffering, toiling one for exceptional believers. There is only one Christ. Are you willing to abide in Him, and thus to bear much fruit?”

Assigned to St. Clement’s Church in an inner-city borough just outside Hackney in London, Reverend Annabelle Dixon brings an enthusiasm and drive to her clerical position that baffles her mentor, Father John, but which soon gains her fans and admiration. Annabelle is not your typical vicar, but her strengths prove to serve her, and those around her, very well.

When Annabelle plans to meet her longtime friend, Sister Mary, a Catholic nun visiting from West Africa, at a local café, little does she know that she will soon find herself embroiled in a mystery of deadly design. Their meeting place is awash with horror, with Sister Mary standing in the middle, shaking, her hand over her mouth and a dead woman at her feet.

Armed only with a note, a disappearing dart, vague hints, and a love of cake, this quick-thinking, quick-footed holy woman must gather the clues, pacify a detective, and find the real perpetrator before both she and her friend wind up in jail.

Part Sherlock, part Father Dowling, Annabelle is a new kind of detective – one who sees the truth in the most unlikely places.

It will have you guessing until the very end!

Interview with the Author of the Series

Q – So, what makes the Reverend Annabelle Dixon series special?

A – Annabelle. When I set out to write these books, I wanted to create a series that featured a heart-warming, smart, sometimes ditzy, ultimately good protagonist that we all undisputedly adore. It is Annabelle – her humanity, her empathy, her big heart – who makes the series so special. With her sometimes partner, sometimes antagonist, Inspector Mike Nicholls, they create some fun and drama as the small town mysteries unfold with humor and intrigue.

If you enjoy the TV series’, The Vicar of Dibley, Miranda, or Midsomer Murders, I think you will enjoy the Reverend Annabelle cozy mysteries.

Q – In what order should I read the books?

A – The Reverend Annabelle Dixon cozy mysteries can be read, and enjoyed, in any order. The prequel, Death at the Café is set in London and takes place a few years before the rest in the series. All the books are complete mysteries.

If you do want to read them in order, I’d suggest the following sequence:

– Death at the Café (prequel)
– Murder at the Mansion
– Body in the Woods

Q – Why should readers give these books a try?

A – Because the Reverend Annabelle series is a gentle, but colorful romp through the beautiful English countryside in a place that is picturesque and peaceful on the outside but one filled with amoral and snobbish eccentrics with all kinds of vices on the inside.

Annabelle is a fun, uncomplicated character who is soulful, devout, smart, and funny with penchant for cake. Both Jamie and I are English and we feature many English countryside rituals, institutions and customs in these stories.

Ultimately, readers who enjoy gentle pacing with a plot that twists and turns, features much fun, drama, quintessential Britishness, and small town murder all the way to the end will get a kick out of this series. It will make you laugh and you will, I hope, become invested in the characters and be rooting for them to come out on top.

Body in the Woods (A Reverend Annabelle Dixon Cozy Mystery Book 3)

Alison Golden

Buried bones. A boy. And tales of lost loves.

When a young boy is running home through the woods, he finds a bone: a forearm to be precise; a human forearm. This discovery sets in motion the reopening of a cold case that Reverend Annabelle Dixon, it seems, simply can’t leave alone.
In the quiet and relatively uneventful village of Upton St. Mary, gossip arises as word spreads that a body has been found in the woods. Once the investigation begins, the forensic team believes that it has been there for over a decade. But the question remains: who was buried there all those years ago?

In the sequel to Murder at the Mansion, Reverend Annabelle finds herself, once again, in amongst the thick of the investigation. With her knack for gaining people’s trust, winkling out their secrets, and piecing clues together, Annabelle is determined to solve the mystery.

In Body in the Woods, there are laugh out loud moments as Annabelle gets herself into plenty of scrapes. There is also a newcomer to the village with his heart set on love, antagonism with her crush, Inspector Nicholls, and Philippa, her church secretary, once more supplying Annabelle with gossip, cake, and her own little puzzle that gets Annabelle a-thinking.

Included in this book are recipes for:

– Ecclesiastical Chocolate Éclairs
– Divine Chocolate Dipped Shortbread
– Rapturous Raspberry Cheesecake
– Annabelle’s Favorite Apricot Tart
– Saintly Strawberry Cupcakes

Can Meredith escape the hell that is her marriage with cold and cruel Patrick Monroe?

Meredith Monroe is married to what was once considered one of the prime catches in her small Amish community of Morristown—the widower Patrick, several years her senior. However, life with him is anything but ideal, with daily verbal abuse and occasional beatings that no one seems to notice. Rather than finding solace with her family, they often seem to side with her husband, and blame her for his cruelty.

When Patrick is killed, Meredith believes that she can finally find relief from the living hell, but she has no idea what’s in store for her. Everything in her life will drastically change in the instant when she witnesses the brutal murder of a young girl and runs for her life…directly into the arms of a handsome millionaire.

“What the hell are you doing in my house?” His mind ran in every possible direction.

“Oh, just a little harmless visit to your lovely wife. She is stubborn, isn’t she?”

Just then he heard Meredith’s muffled voice. Then he heard something hitting the ground, followed by more muffled screams.

Holy Jesus! Rudolph had Meredith hostage. “What the hell are you doing to her?” Landon hissed.

“Nothing yet. But if you don’t listen to what I say, I am not responsible for my actions. I am one crazy man and when I lose my mind, I do things that no one likes.”

Rich Landon Blackwell knows that he’ll marry someday, so when the pretty Amish girl angers him and flees his home, he tracks her down and makes her indebted father an offer he can’t refuse. The Amish man is all too willing to sell his widowed and pregnant daughter for the right price, regardless of her own plans for her future. Landon refuses to admit that the girl he saved without even knowing it has captured more than his passing attention, especially when things just don’t add up in her stories.

From the moment that Meredith becomes Landon’s legal wife, he is determined to make their married life as cold and fruitless as possible. It is the best vengeance that he can think of for this loose woman and her illegitimate child on the way—since they dared to cross his path. However, when the truth finally comes out, Landon must make the most desperate plan of his life—and even his riches won’t save the woman he finally admits that he loves…

Can Meredith convince the world of the truth and finally find arms to surround her with love?

Will Landon begin to believe the truth before his chance at true happiness with the woman of his dreams dies before his very eyes?

Two Brothers, two paths.

“I know what’s going on. What are you going to do to make it right?”
Jude barked out a laugh…he was prepared for every argument. His stance declared he would have none of what Silas had to say.
“Who says we’re not right?”
Praying for the right words to be spoken and a fertile heart to hear them, Silas reached for his brother, plunging into the discussion he knew they needed to have. “Jude, you know the right thing. I don’t need to spout off a list of Scripture. What can I do?”
“Mind your business.” Jude shook off the hand on his arm. “That’s the first thing. No, that’s the ONLY thing.”
“My brother walking in sin isn’t my business?”
“We’re not kids anymore; you can stop looking out for me, it’s getting old. So, mind your business and go home. I don’t need Jiminy Cricket hanging around the door…”
“Jiminy Cricket? How about the Holy Ghost? Don’t be a fool, Jude. You’re not hiding anything from Jesus.”
“You’re boring me, Si. I pray every night and I haven’t missed church. All is well on that front. Now, go away.”
Silas adopted a stubborn set to his face. The fabric of their relationship, worn to tatters from recent strains, tore apart.

The impasse reached could destroy their close bond.
