The bible condemns killing in the book of Exodus. However, recently mob justice has become the order of the day. This morning I came across a mob that was mercilessly beating up a guy who had allegedly stolen from them. This reminded me of a story of a man who was caught stealing CDs and was stoned to death!
We have heard of cases where a crowd of protesters have stopped the police from implementing the law. They take the law into their own hands, and end up taking the life of others. It is very possible that some of the victims may well be innocent. Mob justice is an ugly part in most parts of the country and the world as a whole. It is our hope that such practices are cubed but it has to begin with you. Donít you ever try to incite an angry crowd.
Exodus 23:2Mob justice is a sin and has such been condemned by the bible; though people donít heed.Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil - General usage will never excuse us in any ill practice; nor is the broad way ever the safer for its being crowded.
The question is who should take responsibility for the maddening protesters? Who can stand up to the angry crowd?
