Isaiah 62:6-7 Christians Can’t Keep Silent

Isaiah 62:6-7 (KJV)
I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

One of the things most hated about evangelistic Christians is that they are too outspoken about their faith. The irreligious tell us they would be fine with us if we would just be quiet about what we believe. There are many things wrong with this:

Our faith requires we be evangelistic about our faith
We are really practicing our faith if we are quiet about it.

Their argument isn’t sincere
They believe that if they can keep us quiet they can starve us out. If we are not evangelistic we will have no converts and we will die out by attrition.

This would be terribly hypocritical of us
Even those who hate what we believe need what we believe. God is. That being the case, for a Christian to know this and be quiet about it is heartless and cruel. The sleeping family in a burning house may not like being awakened but to allow them to sleep in their condition is unconscionable.

So too for the Christian to keep silence.
