The Masses Are Wrong

“But they were insistent, with loud voices asking that He be crucified. And their voices began to prevail.” (Luke 23:23)

            Pilate chose to crucify Jesus.  What won him over?  It wasn’t truth and logic.  Pilate was convinced by the size of the crowds and the noise of the voices.  The majority cried for Jesus’ crucifixion, and the masses were going to get what they wanted.

            Just because a view is loudly spoken doesn’t make it right.  Insistence isn’t proof of accuracy.  Before you accept a point of view as your own, check its validity.  The loudest religion of Jesus’ day chose to crucify Him.  Religious confusion has always been a problem, and the masses typically end up on the wrong side of history.

            Listen for truth.  Investigate the Scriptures yourself.  Seek what is right, not what is popular.  It is the road less traveled, but as Robert Frost once said, it will make all the difference.
