If Everyone Else Does It...

A bumper sticker I saw recently: “Eat American lamb; ten million coyotes can’t be wrong.”

Many people operate on the idea that if everyone does it, it must be good, right, or at least ok. The problem with this is that it contradicts Scripture:

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

“There is not a just man upon earth that does good and sins not.” (Ecclesiastes 7:20)

If everyone does it, it must be wrong. When it comes to moral judgment, the majority does not determine what is right.
