1. Ask the crowd. 2. Let the crowd make the decision. 3. At all costs maintain the status quo. 4. Obey the crowd, even though it is morally repugnant. 5. The leader, manager or father is not responsible. 6, Its the individual or group's choice. 7. We cannot override free will.
Matthew 27:21-24 Pilate said to them, Then what shall I do with Jesus Who is called Christ? They all replied, Let Him be crucified! And he said, Why? What has He done that is evil? But they shouted all the louder, Let Him be crucified!So when Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but rather that a riot was about to break out, he took water and washed his hands in the presence of the crowd, saying, I am not guilty of nor responsible for this righteous Man's blood; see to it yourselves. [Deut. 21:6-9; Ps. 26:6.]
