5 comments on “People Behaving Badly

  1. Isn’t it so true that just as one voice can command an army; one voice can start a riot? When I read this portion of scripture I see what Jesus meant “the blind lead the blind and both fall into the ditch.” As we as Americans view the electorate via TV, social media etc. it seems that what goes around comes around…or as Solomon said, “there is nothing new under the sun.” People never change, they will follow blindly; quite a commentary on this race of humans of which we are a part isn’t it? No wonder Jesus sighed in his spirit and said: “you unbelieving generation, how much longer, must I be with you?” The only positive in this story is how Paul responded by listening and heeding the advice of those in higher up places and how God protected him. We can take a lesson from this and apply it to our own lives, stay away and do not mingle with those who are seeking to riot when you know darn well they haven’t a clue what they are rioting about! Be wise and discerning and be thankful when God protects us.

    Good blog Don! Food for thought.

    • Excellent thoughts; thank you. You remind me of a very famous quote, and although I don’t often quote Nazi criminals, Josef Goebbels really got this one right, and he should know, having been Hitler’s minister of propaganda. He said that “people will believe a lie more readily than the truth, and the bigger, the more readily they will believe it.”

      Scary thought.
