Righteousness is not by Popularity

Fill Me, Lord
Do not spread false rumors, and do not help a guilty person by giving false testimony. Do not follow the majority when they do wrong or when they give testimony that perverts justice. Do not show partiality to a poor person at his trial 
(Exodus 23:1-3, GNT)
Righteousness and truth is not a game of number, nor is it about that which is popular. The word of God remains the measuring stick and the plumb line. If it does not fit with the word of God it is not true. It is not righteous. Period! There are no two ways about it.
"Right is right, even if everyone is against it; and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." (William Penn)
Jesus’ prayer to the Father was, and still is, “Dedicate them to yourself by means of the truth; your word is truth.” (John 17:17, GNT) Note, He did not say, “Separate them by that which is popular.” Nor, did He say, “Separate them by what the ‘Big Shot’ (otherwise known as Bishop) says.”
“Dedicate them to yourself by means of the truth; your word is truth.” 
It is the Word. It is the Way. It is the Truth. It is Life. And, even if I were the only one, I’ll keep the course. It is my compass back home.
