Don’t be swayed by numbers

Don’t be swayed by numbers

Acts 25: 2 “Festus went up from Caesarea to Jerusalem, where the chief priests and Jewish leaders appeared before him and presented the charges against Paul.”

We do not know how many, but this is a group of the present high priest and previous ones no doubt and other religious leaders of all persuasions.

As with any group there would be differences of opinion about a whole realm of things. However, they are united over the charges against Paul.

A united front doesn’t mean they are right.

“I am right and you can ask such and such. Hey will you back me up here and tell them what I’ve told them?” And yet even with such displays they can be miles from the truth.

Don’t let the weight of opinion persuade you to believe something is true no matter how many ‘likes’ and ‘comments’ there are!

It is possible that the large group is wrong and the one person is innocent. It takes strength to slow the situation down and discover yourself the truth.

Numbers isn’t everything especially when there is no evidence or fruit.
