Pilate… washed his hands in front of the crowd. I am innocent of this mans blood, he said.
It is your responsibility! … But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.
There was no neutral option for Pilate – no sitting on the fence – he had to come down on one side or the other. His actions belied his words.
There is no neutral option for us either. We must declare ourselves either for or against Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Our actions in relation to the Saviour of sinners, will either accuse us or excuse us.
