These verses have been in my mind lately from Luke 12: verse 51 Jesus talking, “Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.” and verses 56-57 “Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time? Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right?”
Why are we letting others (government, peers, friends, and family) tell us what is right? Why don’t we read the Word of God and judge for ourselves? Are we afraid of being different? “Others” won’t get you to Heaven.
