I will not sing louder!

Leo Alexander, who was consultant to the Secretary of War and on duty with the office of Chief Counselor for War Crimes in Nuremberg, says that what happened in Nazi Germany “all started with the acceptance of the attitude that there is such a thing as life not worthy to be lived.”

An elderly German man who lived through the Holocaust tells the following story:

I always considered myself a Christian. I attended a church since I was a small boy. We had heard the stories of what was happening to the Jews; but like most people in America today, we tried to distance ourselves from the reality of what was really taking place. What could anyone do to stop it?

A railroad track ran behind our small church, and each Sunday morning we would hear the whistle from a distance and then the clacking of the wheels moving over the track. We became disturbed when one Sunday we heard cries coming from the train as it passed by. We grimly realized that the train was carrying Jews.

Week after week that train whistle would blow. We would dread to hear the sound of those old wheels because we knew that the Jews would begin to cry out to us as they passed our church. It was so terribly disturbing! We could do nothing to help these poor people, yet their screams tormented us. We knew exactly at what time that whistle would blow, and we decided the only way to keep from being so disturbed by the cries was to start singing our hymns. If some of the screams reached our ears, we’d just sing a little louder until we could hear them no more.

Years have passed, and no one talks about it much any more; but I still hear that train whistle in my sleep. I can still hear them crying out for help. God forgive all of us who called ourselves Christians, yet did nothing to intervene.

Is this what you want to remember as you grow old?  That you watched movies and followed football while the government  turned our kids into socialist drones in the public schools via Common Core?  Do you want to remember that your children lost their souls to Planned Parenthood, LGBT, Hollywood, etc because you were afraid of offending anyone?  Do you want to have to tell future generations what it was like to live in a free America and how you could have saved freedom but didn’t because you were too afraid you might lose your job?   Do you want to tell God that you could have done more to speak out against cultural decay but wouldn’t because you were afraid your church might lose your tax exempt status?   Do you want to someday watch as radical Islam overwhelms America and rapes are through the roof because you were too afraid of being branded an “Islamophobe” to speak out?  Do you want to watch your kids work in third-world conditions because Big Business and the phony climate change movement destroyed manufacturing in America yet you were too afraid of not fitting in to speak out?

Or do you want to know you did everything possible to stop the forces of evil and fought back?
