How is not as important as what happens.

How is not as important as what happens.

Acts 22:5 “…as the high priest and all the Council can themselves testify. I even obtained letters from them to their associates in Damascus, and went there to bring these people as prisoners to Jerusalem to be punished.”

“There are people still alive who know what I was like. They know what I did. I got reference letters from them to introduce me to their counterparts in Damascus. They recommended me to them so that I could bring back the Christians to torture and imprison them.”

It is the high priest!

It is the whole Council of the Sanhedrin!

It is the leaders in Damascus!

So what?

The outcome is not justified by how important the means of getting there is.

Let us not be fooled!

  1. Just because the most respected of leaders brings a good reference, it doesn’t make it right.
  2. Just because there is a consensus of opinion, it doesn’t make it right.
  3. Just because there is an agreement and the door opens, it doesn’t make it right.

Don’t be deceived.
