Question:A person is either with this cour or he must be counted against it. There be no road. Do you think that's true? Explain.
Actually, I agree with this quote.
Here is what I mean:
Some people are unaffected by the actions of others, but those who are must either accept the actions (and thereby be in agreement with them) or resist.
*Note: Obviously, people in Singapore were not concerned with the events of Salem, Massachusetts while John Proctor was being executed. Therefore, they were neither for or against the court.
There is the fact that everyone who spoke against the court was tried as a witch.
However, others may have harbored their resentment over what the girls were doing, yet not have done anything out of fear. In my opinion, actions speak louder than thoughts and therefore these people were still with the court.
Okay, there is my answer for the specific situation mentioned. Now let me apply it to life:
In everything we see, we have a choice either to agree with it, ignore it, or resist it. However, everything we ignore will continue, so we are in a sense agreeing with it.
From the Bible, "Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you mine with deeds." Basically, if you don't act, you are not really believing what you say you are.
As a side note, I don't think that you should spend all of your time fighting against things you disagree with, or you become a argumentative hater. However, I do believe that you should help where you are best able.
