It is said, “all those people can’t be wrong” or “everyone is doing it, and you will be left on the wrong side of history if you don’t join in.” But, equating majority acceptance as proof that something is right, is error, and I shall prove it.
First, morality and correction aren’t established by man. That is true because man is fallible and needs guidance from a higher power (Romans 3:23; Proverbs 14:12, 21:2; Jeremiah 10:23-24).
Next, men need to consult with the word of God before concluding a matter right or wrong (Joshua 9:14; Leviticus 24:12; Rom. 7:7; John 8:31-32; 1 Timothy 4:16).
Bible history has shown us that the majority doesn’t make something right. God destroyed Sodom because it couldn’t produce ten righteous people (Gen. 18:32). Paul was alarmed at the city of Athens because everyone was given over to idolatry (Acts 17:16). God destroyed the world with a flood during Noah’s life, saving only eight people because the majority had gone into wickedness (Gen. 6:5-13, 7:1-2,11-16). God threatened the huge city of Nineveh with destruction because the total population was wicked (Jonah 1:1-2, 3:1-10, 4:10-11).
On the Day of Judgment, Jesus said the majority will go to hell, and only the minority will go to heaven (Matthew 7:13-14). So don’t listen to those who stake their claim on what the majority is doing. Follow those who stand on the word of God, though they may be the minority (Matt. 7:24-27, 24:35; 1 Peter 1;23-25).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
