What is wrong?
"24 million Texans can't be wrong" Really? I think to myself as I drive by that billboard for the 40 hundredth time on my way home from work. It's a billboard advertising Lone Star Beer and I disagree, I think 24 million Texans can be wrong. It baffles me sometimes when I remember how much alcoholic drinking goes on in the world.
But as I am driving by it, the slogan got me thinking about several current affairs and shifts in our nation's thinking. People are wanting laws passed to legalize same sex marriage and to keep abortions legal and to use embryonic stem cells and many other things that our tolerant way of thinking leads us these days. If we can just get enough people to say it's right then it's right. If the law says we can do it then I am justified in taking those actions.
How many people do we need to agree with something to make it right?
And as I am driving God says to me "Lindsey, no matter how many come against me and my ways I am still truth". God stands alone above any man and whether the stances we take for things are with Him or opposite of Him, He will always be right. The whole world can stand up for a woman's right to choose, but if God says it is wrong, then that will never change.
Woe to the multitude of many people
Who make a noise like the roar of the seas,
And to the rushing of nations
That make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
The nations will rush like the rushing of many waters;
But God will rebuke them and they will flee far away,
And be chased like the chaff of the mountains before the wind,
Like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
