There is power of life and death in the tongue. I struggled with this topic for a while. Out of everyone in the world, why should I have the right to speak out in a forum? Why should I give others rules to follow. It was once said something about Christianity is telling fellow beggars where to find bread. I came to the conclusion - Jesus is the light of the world - and I could point others to him. This is probably a rhetorical question -

Prayer: Father in the foolishness, sinfulness you died for, and vanity of speaking may others see your glory and come to know you through your Son Jesus. Amen.

It's not only a right but a responsibility. God commissioned us to share the gospel as we have oppurtunity. It doesn't matter what the modern age thinks about that, we are here to please God, not man.

I found this cool verse that someone shared: Deuteronomy 4:9-10...
I also put in "teach your children" in the Berbible bible word search-
God wants us to teach our children his laws so they might have life.

The difference as to whether should speak out or not is wisdom of the shepherd. You have to graduate from being a sheep before you can be a shepherd. And you cannot give advice in areas you do not know much about. And you pray and ask for God's wisdom to become a shepherd. If it's what God wants as well, things will change and your eyes will be opened.

It is wisdom to know your place and to know it does not warrant more until you are ready. Being humble is a sign that you are the willing clay and will allow the potter to mold you into something new. Humbleness is one of the hardest things to learn. And it's one of the main things that stands in a Christian's way when they want to grow in Christ, yet don't know what's wrong. You show from you post that your heart is ready. You just need to commit, ask for what you want in helping in God's kingdom, and wait for your answer.

God will not do anything until you pray about it.
