Nothing more than the common consent of fools!
Any kind of fad which rules the hour, draws a mad crowd after it. No matter how absurd or ridiculous the mania, the worshipers of fashion cry: "These are your gods!" Yes, Satan is marvelously well obeyed by his servants!
Yet many of you church people look around on society—to follow its customs and fashions.
You watch the general current—and then float upon it.
You study the popular breeze—and shift your sails to suit it.
You ask: "Is it fashionable?"
If it is fashionable, then you must do it.
Fashion is the law of multitudes—but it is nothing more than the common consent of fools!
To follow the fashions and customs of the times, is to be an enemy of God.
"You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God?
Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world, becomes an enemy of God!" James 4:4
