The Silent Majority – Baptiste Institute

(Reading Time: 1 ½ minutes)

Are you familiar with the term “Silent Majority?” You hear it a lot lately… people are using it in a way that makes it sound virtuous.

But in my opinion, it’s a concept that’s dangerous to society.

People are cautious about what they’re saying because they believe they’re part of a ”silent majority.” It leads to actively choosing not to speak up about what you believe in for fear of someone leaving you, being canceled, losing your job, or destroying your reputation.

People who are successful, prosperous, or shining just a little too bright are being shut down…  

And because of this, the world is missing out on hearing some important opinions and truths. 

Facts are being missed because people aren’t speaking up.

And it’s getting to the point where many Christians and people from almost all walks of life that I know are terrified to speak out publicly about their beliefs, personal experiences, and how they see things.  

We live in a world today where everyone is expected to act or think a certain way. Anyone who deviates from this is shut down immediately. 

You may have seen in the media big names being “canceled,” almost as an example to all of us of what could happen if we were to be open about our opinions.  

But don’t be fooled!  

It won’t stop with celebrities. They’re coming for you, too, if you don’t align yourself with their beliefs and “group think”.  

Accepting being a part of the Silent Majority may seem like the safer option, but in the long run this is detrimental to society, and to YOU. 

Instead, we should be speaking up for ourselves, especially in the ways that scare us.  

The thing about a Silent Majority is that it is the majority. We may feel outnumbered because we’re not loud…  

But if we each were to all speak up and take action both individually and together, we can break free of the Silent Majority identity that is rooted in fear and start confronting the forces that try to control our speech, your voice, and the truth.  

Do not fall into the deadly trap of being silenced. 

We can agree to disagree, but we have to be willing and able to use our voices and have our truth heard. 

The idea of a Silent Majority… or a Silent Minority, for that matter… is not one we should be willing to allow for if it means losing our voice. 

As Greek writer Euripides penned back in the 4th century B.C…

“This is slavery, not to speak one’s thought.”

Have you found yourself holding back when you wanted to speak up publicly or with those closest to you? If so, are you being stopped by the fear of something? What’s one way you can practice using your voice this week?
