Speaking Truth to Power


This brave young man who stared down the tanks in Tiananmen Square in 1989 was very likely executed in a Chinese Communist prison, as were the other protesters. Many Chinese today have not even heard of this historic protest, since the Communist state censors everything.

This is a striking image of speaking truth to power, come what may. Christians need this kind of courage, the courage of a blood-stained (but now empty) Cross.

And a startling contrast to what media elites call "Speaking Truth to Power" - writing or saying something that will earn them only approbation from their friends and co-workers.

They block your blog too! I was just there and couldn't get access. The RSS feeds would get through, but not direct access to your blog. Hmm.
