This expands on the previous posting from William LePar's spiritual source, The Council.
Questioner: Back to this idea of bravery and standing up for what you believe in. When there are beliefs that you hold strongly and everybody else around you does not, but you can see that they would be beneficial if the other people did, does that come with time when you know when it is right to speak out about it or are you committing a sin of omission by not speaking out about it?

The Council: Sometimes we speak louder simply by our actions. Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: The strongest voice you could have is your actions. Sometimes the weakest voice is talking about it. Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes.

The Council: Let your life be your voice. Let your life be your example. Others will see. They will probably choose your advice much quicker by seeing you live it than by you talking to them about it. Of course, if they ask you a question, naturally you will give them an answer. You see?

Questioner: The truth, you will give them the truth.

The Council: Yes, of course.

Questioner: I was just wondering because there have been a couple times when Bill has said don't bring yourself any unnecessary grief about mentioning some things to other people. Say, for example, my pastor at church.

The Council: That is true. Why create yourself any unnecessary problems? Live your life. You do not have to tell people what your beliefs are. Live them. They will see it, but they will see it in a way that they can understand. Words sometimes can be confrontational. Do you understand?

Questioner: Yes, I do.

The Council: If you live what you profess to believe, you eliminate the sermons, thereby eliminating the misunderstanding or the offensive words because of ignorance on the part of some people.
