Church silence promotes violence to humans, to animals, to our
environment, to our economy, to our education, to our finances, and to our health.
By: Mary T. and Frank L. Hoffman
There are two things that bear on your comments; there is a false teaching going around much of the right wing of Christianity that says that by simply believing in Jesus Christ all of your past, present and future sins are forgiven, so that it doesn't matter what you do.
The other is that most people are selfish, and don't care what happens to the other person or animal, so long as it doesn't happen to them or their family or pets.
Jesus Christ stood against these things, as did the latter prophets in the Hebrew Bible.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
