“Everybody Else Is Doing It!”

Wrong is WRONG even if EVERYBODY is doing it. Right is RIGHT even if NOBODY is doing it. When we stand before our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in judgment, we will stand alone. There will be no one else around for us to point at and discuss their activities. Likewise, we will not be asked to explain or defend the activities of others. Judgment will be on us and us alone. We will be asked about our activities, our decisions, and we will be defenseless before a righteous and just God. So please, please… do what is right… even if you are the only one.

Romans 14:11-12 (NASB)
11 For it is written, “As I live , says the Lord , every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall give praise to God.” 12 So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.

Revelation 20:11-15 (NASB)
11 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. 12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. 14 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
