I have been thinking about this question a lot lately and while doing so was reminded of some Biblical examples where the majority was not correct:
- When the majority (led by Korah) decided to rebel against the leadership of Moses -
- When the spies (Joshua and Caleb) came back and reported regarding the promised land
- When the people of Israel wanted a king and God gave them Saul
There are probably other instances that I have failed to mention here, but I just want you to think about the question that I posed
Personally, I do not always believe that the majority is always right. Watch out, there are people who will check their brains at the door and go along with the majority for expediency sake, to avoid conflict. It is at times like this we can be reminded of the importance of thinking properly and for ourselves, resisting the pull to go with the status quo because it is easy.
