The Idol of Popular Opinion
No god is more fickle than the idol of what's popular.
Do you care what people say about you? I do. Having a good reputation is an important part of following Jesus. If people say you’re rude or reckless or unkind, that is a poor reflection of Christ.
But what if people say those things about you, and they aren’t true? Or what you you fear that people believe those things about you, and they actually don’t?
