In life we have a lot of opportunities to make good - bad - decisions. As intelligent - informed people of faith - we have been provided a ton of information to assist us when making any and all decisions. Even in the face of controversy - misguided public opinion - we do not have to - go with the flow. On the contrary - particularly as Christians - we are called to go against the flow of popular beliefs. We - ourselves - may not win any popularity contests - but doing what is right - correct - just - does not make you an enemy - simply a person of conviction - standards.
Jesus was often misunderstood - even when He was attempting to bring goodness into the lives of others - many did not understand what He was attempting. As Christians - Christ followers - His disciples - we are asked to stand strong in our knowledge and faith. There are no options when facing wrong - uninformed ideas - concepts. Standing firm in our beliefs - even when unpopular - is possible through the grace of God. Nothing more - nothing less. Just because I can do anything - does not mean I should. Period
