It is impossible to be a bystander in your relationship with Christ. If we are not actively following Him and working to further His kingdom, then we are technically working against Him. In Matthew 12:30 Jesus says, He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters. Anyone who chooses to remain neutral is no better that someone actively fighting again Christ. To stand on the sideline and watch, when we have the opportunity to engage in the battle, is the equivalent of cheering on the enemy.
