Have you ever heard of the disease Encephalitis Lethargica? The disease attacks the brain and causes people to freeze like a statue, unable to speak or move. From1915-1926, there was a worldwide epidemic of it. It seems to have died out, although there have been some isolated cases noted. However, some Christians seem to have been afflicted with something akin to it. There are times we fail to speak and fail to act.
