If we just follow the majority, not questioning the validity of your beliefs, we may be following the crowd on the way to destruction. Sincerity is not enough. It can be very costly at the end of the road. Let us not be lulled by a sense of complacency that, since we are on the side of the majority, we are safe.
For broad and easy is the way that leads to destruction. But narrow and difficult is the way that leads to life:
or raise his voice in the streets.
A bruised reed he will not break,
and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.
In faithfulness he will bring forth justice.
Herd mentality exists not only in wildlife reserves and the financial markets but also in the spiritual realm. If we just follow the majority, not questioning the validity of our beliefs, we may be heading towards destruction.
