“If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, Let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause: Let us swallow them up alive as the grave; And whole, as those that go down into the pit: We shall find all precious substance, We shall fill our houses with spoil: Cast in thy lot among us; Let us all have one purse” (Proverbs 1:11-14).
The mob spirit is dangerous. People often do things as part of a larger group they would never do individually. The underlying humanistic philosophy is that the majority determines what is right and wrong. But this is determined only by God. Whether one person or all people oppose Him, God is still true and the opposition is lying.
Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil (Exodus 23:2).
God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar (Romans 3:4).
