Consensus


Many folks make decisions based upon “consensus.” We are told things like: 4 out of 5 dentists approve. 4 out of 5 doctors use this product. 9 out of 10 customers agree.  “Consensus” means a “general agreement; the judgment arrived at by most of those concerned.” And so many folks will reason, “If it’s good enough for the majority, then it’s good enough for me.”

Unfortunately, too many allow that to be the standard by which they make their religious and spiritual decisions, as well. “That church has lots of adherents, so they must be doing right.” “This preacher has a lot of followers online, so he must be worth listening to.” “I’ve polled several members at our church, and here are some changes we think should be made.”

Consensus? That’s not the way God works! The way that “seems right” often is not (Prov. 14:12). Following the majority will lead to destruction (Matt. 7:13). The one “way” (Matt. 7:14) approved by God is not based upon consensus but upon His one “truth” (John 8:32).
