The silence of God isn’t always the approval of God

We really make a mistake when we make an argument for silence on behalf of God. We think it means… well… whatever we want it to mean. Because, quite frankly, we may not know. 

But we may be in danger of living “on the edge” in disobedience and find out the silence of God has an end point… and that end may not be so pleasant:

You’ve done these things and I’ve kept quiet.
    You thought I was just like you!
        But now I’m punishing you;
        I’m laying it all out, right in front of your face. (Ps. 50:21, CEB)

We really need to gauge our actions and our motives more by the standards of the Kingdom instead of guessing that God is just like us and rolling the dice.
