Stand for Truth

Christian artist Johnny Diaz recently released a song titled “Stand for You” that should become the anthem of Christians everywhere. Here are the words:

So long politics it’s time to start being me
Take the chains off my lips it’s time to set my tongue free
Some might just turn their heads but some will raise a fist
And You told me to stand so I won’t back down from this
They say there are no absolutes but are they absolutely sure

In a world that tries to water You down
Where beliefs cannot be spoken to loud
I’ll stand for truth
Where they claim Your way isn’t wide enough
And they do their best just to cover You up
I’ll stand for You

Hello reality it’s time we embrace honesty
Teach me to speak with truth and love and with humility
You made a promise that You’re coming back to earth
So how selfish am I if I don’t go tell the world
They say just be sincere
but could they all just be sincerely wrong (Chorus)

They might remove Your name from money
But You own it all the same
They kicked You out of school that’s funny
Cause how could You go away
In a land that’s built upon Your word
It’s amazing You’ve been banned
To think that we control You is absurd
So for truth I’m here to stand

What a great song! As Christians, it is time we stop backing down from confrontation in the name of “loving thy neighbor,” because if we really love someone, then we would care enough about them to be bold and warn them of their error.

We live in a day where every voice is allowed to be heard. Every voice, that is, except the Christians’ voice. Homosexuals can have parades, Hollywood can put out whatever they want, and heretics can preach a false gospel. But as soon as a believer wants to mention the name of Jesus they are censored and accused of being hateful.

Society hates our God, but that doesn’t mean we should concede and keep quiet about Him, that just means that we have to be louder to get the message of truth out over all the lies. And regardless of what the liberal peace-activist Christians say, society doesn’t hate God because of Christians, they hate God because they have not met Him like we have; once they do, they will want to live their lives for Him.

So when society is standing up for their anti-Christian agenda, let’s stand for truth.
