In Matthew 27:11, Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor questioned Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” And Jesus said to him, “It is as you say.”

Jesus was offered many times the opportunity to save His life. Each time, He show that God is not controlled by man  but rather man  is under the authority of God. Jesus could have easily said that He was mistaken but instead He boldly confirms that He is the King of the Jews. Apparently Jesus missed social training courses of tolerance that is very prominent today. This was the opportunity to say the right thing in order to be politically correct. At that time, Caesar was king over everyone. For Jesus to claim to be a king, especially of the Jews who were under the rule of Caesar, was a direct attack on Caesar’s power. Are we that bold today? Are Christians allowed to stand for what they believe  in? It seems only if it goes with mainstream media. No wonder we see many churches changing their positions on abortion, murder, homosexuality, and things of that nature. It is one thing for non-believers ruling non-believers to have anti-God views on these topics, but when body of Christ joins them, we might as well spit on the cross of Christ with them.
