“Moment of Truth”
This is the moment of truth
Where resolve is put to the test,
Where the truth is placed against the lies,
This is the sifting time of the true and false.
This is where fear faces death,
Where doubt faces a hard decision;
In the face of death the truth is revealed
Whether the faith is real or not.
Just because you’re afraid you won’t defend the truth?
Compromise and pretense are cowardice,
Pretended acceptance of false beliefs
For the sake of being spared is cowardice.
It’s treason, really, to betray what you believe,
To pretend you didn’t really believe it
Because now you’re threatened with death
And you’d rather pretend than die for the truth.
When the blade is brought to your throat,
When the gun is put to your head,
That’s where the test of belief is most real,
When your only choices are to die or betray.
It seems harsh, it seems it can’t be that narrow,
But it is and you must realize the cost is great,
Sometimes it may require your life to stand
For the sake of Christ and His Gospel.
What’s the choice you’d make then
If it wasn’t just a possible event but reality?
When you’re threatened with death
Would you stand or fall with those who fell before?
