"Nevertheless many even of the authorities believed
in him, but for fear of the Pharisees they did not
confess it, lest they should be put out out the
synagogue: for they loved the praise of men
more than the praise of God."
(John 12:42,43 RSV)
Am I more concerned about the opinions of my
fellow men than of God who made me, gives me
life and loved me enough to die for me?
