Recently in Traffic Court a man who received an expensive parking ticket testified that a uniformed Policeman had given his OK for the man to park there.
The Judge asked the man if he would recognize the Officer if he ever saw him again, and the man replied that he would.
The Judge then said, “Good. When you see the Officer again, tell him he owes you $57.”
The point: Whatever an authority figure tells you has no bearing on whether an item is true or false – right or wrong. Truth is truth independent of opinion, polls, and presentation. That is why we must strive to be as the Bereans, where of them it was said, “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11).
Shake or Nod!
