“Let us, therefore, foresake the vanity of the crowd and their false teachings, and turn back to the word delivered to us from the beginning.”
—Polycarp of Smyrna
It doesn’t say to avoid the crowd, but to forsake the vanity of the crowd. Remember, we are different and have been “born again” of Spirit. The old self was buried at the cross upon receiving salvation. Avoid the temptation to go back to relying on the “flesh”. Instead, Live By The Holy Spirit!
Keeping it 💯
