I was talking with someone recently who opened the door to the biggest struggle in her faith, it’s probably one of the same as yours. There’s no shame in it, but she is afraid to address her stance on hot topic issues because of the backlash she would receive. The problem was, I didn’t even have to ask her why.

What does the Bible Say about Standing for Righteousness?: The Fervent Mama - It's time for the true church to stand for righteousness. There has never been a better time stand up against sin and prepare for spiritual war.  I didn’t need to ask about her surety in the Biblical text of this topic. I didn’t have to question if her faith was shakeable. I didn’t even wonder what her chosen position was. You see, I know this person. I know that she has a strong background in scripture, I know that she has a steadfast faith, I know where she stands.

So, I didn’t need to ask why she was afraid. I didn’t need to ask because I already knew.

Earlier this year, I wrote a post about my family’s decision to step away from Disney because of their openness regarding LGBTQ issues. Unsurprisingly, I was bashed. I was persecuted. I was sent threats. My personal information was posted on the world’s largest social network for all to see.

Over and over again the emails poured in. Direct messages, letters, comments. They thought that their repulsive rhetoric and vile words may change my Bible-backed convictions. So they continued. Some for months, some I’m still dealing with to this very day.

Yet out of those thousands, were thousands more. More who hid within the confines of their safe spaces and thanked me for being a light. Many apologizing for the horrendous attacks, admitting to being afraid of speaking out for fear of the repercussions. Many who, just like my friend, are intimidated into silence.

I think I’m in a position to say that I understand. I know it’s hard. I know it isn’t fun to be persecuted. I know it isn’t fair to be cast aside. I know that the response is overwhelming. I know that the enemy seems stronger. I know that the costs are great.

Even though there were thousands, I read almost every bit of “hate mail“. I wish I could say that they didn’t bother me, but they did. Each one that called me an ugly name, or that wished ill-will upon my children, or questioned my faith, hurt. Each new, hurt the same as the first.

We have a duty in Christ to be strong (Ephesians 6:10), to fight  (2 Timothy 4:7), to be separate (2 Corinthians 6:17), to be courageous (Joshua 1:9), to suffer (1 Peter 3:17), to be persecuted (2 Timothy 3:12), to be hated (John 15:18). We all have a duty to stand for righteousness and spread the Gospel (Mark 16:15).

I know the opposed are loud and seem great in number. I know they will not come to reason or fight a fair fight. I know that they are boastful and proud in/of their sin. Nevertheless, Christ is with us (Deuteronomy 20:1) and He is greater (Deuteronomy 10:17).

 Never has there been a time when such a pacifying and false doctrine has been taught amongst us. Never has there been a time when the enemy has become so forthright.

What is love, if it isn’t caring for your neighbors soul? What is love, if it isn’t pointing them to the truth? What is love, if it isn’t showing them Christ? What is love, if it isn’t bearing witness? What is love, if it isn’t showing them abundant life? What is love, when they’re dying and going to hell?

The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, but the violent take it by force.Matthew 11:12 Hell is still real and everyday people fall into it’s bellies. Is that blood on your hands? It’s time for the church to show them a better way, for the church to refuse the lies and rebuke the fear of the enemy.

It’s time for the church to be the giant marquee that points towards a Biblical Christ. You are your brother’s keeper. You are a representative of the Lord. You are a billboard of truth. You may be the only true light a person ever sees. Souls lie in the balance between Heaven and hell.

Your words matter. Your actions matter. Your convictions matter.

It’s more than just an LGBTQ issue; it’s an abortion issue, it’s a hate issue, it’s a perversion issue, it’s a lawless issue, it’s an immoral issue, it’s a idolatrous, covetous, broken-love issue, it’s a slothful, lazy, stiff-necked issue, it’s a pacifying doctrine and greedy gospel, pat you on the back because you’re okay in your sin issue.

Sin is sin, no matter the sin. We can’t speak out against one without addressing the others. We can’t be more fervent about one, without being equally passionate about the others. No sin is greater than another, and you are called, chosen, to stand against sin and live a life of holiness.

I challenge you to read Jude 1. We are told of the last days, that the people will be mockers and vile beings. We are told that they will lust after sin. But we are told to love them into Christ, or to deliver them by fear- doing whatever it takes to pull them from the confines of their sin and out of hell.

1 Corinthians 13 tells us what love is, but Proverbs 27 tells us what love does. “Open rebuke is better than secret love” (5), “faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of the enemy are deceitful” (6), “ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel” (9).

Love is not accepting, nor tolerant. Love is gentle rebuke, honest reproof, and a true leading into restoration.

“But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;” 1 Peter 3:14 


  1. Amen! Brooke it is absolutely exciting to see and hear a fellow sister in Christ standing for truth. We live in such crazy times. I agree that we have so many yelling their opinion but where is the church speaking God’s heart and His opinion. We cannot afford to be silent the creation is eagerly waiting for the son’s of God to be revealed. So let’s stand!

  2. Thank you for this article.. ..You are not alone. I came upon this article after several moms and I brought (without request) national attention to our town for trying to keep sexually explicit materials and books with pedophilia out of our public library. CNN, MSNBC, and NBC and other news outlets spread lies about our efforts of trying to protect children and our names were smeared all over our local media by those opposing us. It was a very hard and difficult time but we are continuing to fight and are making a difference. Thank you for standing up for truth and righteousness. Keep up the good fight! We are strong in the Lord.

    I ran across this site googling a bible verse to back my thoughts on the subject of our government and how it is our responsibility to vote for a good candidate to lead our country because the wrong one can bring your nation to ruins just as we are witnessing happen today and not standing up together and taking back our country that once incorporated God in everything and worshipping our God publicly was approved of. The page I was brought to did not give me the verse I was hoping to find but it gave me more then that. I’ll def. Be back for more! I hope that the evil people that think they can send you such disgusting things when you are standing up against their evil thoughts and acts does not hurt you when you hear or read them because remember God is the only one who matters. The only one of enough importance to worry about what they think of you! And following his guidelines is what gets earns your keep in HIS house for eternity! Thank you for the words you instilled in my mind and heart!

    Thank you so much for your blog here. I got so inspired by the scriptures you have addressed here. I took the scriptures and printed them off to share in our ladies bible study and got to 2 Timothy 4:6-8 in the Message bible it reads this way. “You take over. I’m about to die, my life an offering on God’s altar. This is the only race worth running. I’ve run hard right to the finish, believed all the way. All that’s left now is the shouting — God’s applause! Depend on it, He’s and honest judge. He’ll do right not only by me, but by everyone eager for His coming.” That spoke to me because that once you get to the end your race is finished. But from that point then looking back and that was what mattered. Every life you touched,

  5. Thank you for your boldness! These same thoughts echo in my mind. God is calling us to armor up and take a stand and I appreciate your putting into words what I am sensing in my spirit! I am going to share this also, because I believe every believer needs to read it. Blessings to you and your family.

  6. Praise God!! ? Brooke, I admire your strength- the strength that can only be found in our Lord Jesus Christ!! Thank you so much for writing this. This entire article clearly articulated EVERYTHING I’m sensing urgently in my spirit. I will share this. I will be praying for you and your family! ??God bless you dear sister – you are NOT alone! I love you. ♥️
