They drew straws to pick Judas' replacement Mathias. Of course God chose Saul (who is also called Paul)...
What the meme fails to mention, among so many other things, is that the people that voted for crucifixion were not Christians. This is one of the stupidest, know-nothing memes I have ever seen.
Hmmmm. I think that actually adds to its relevance. There are a lot of non-Christians these days, trying to harm the church and and their communities through “democratic” means.
They didn't vote on anything. They were subjects of Rome. Rome occupied Judea and Pontius Pilate was the Roman administrator. He, as the designated authority, held absolute power.
No, he certainly was not. In title and theory, maybe, but in practice? No. In fact, at the trial, PP said, “I see no fault in this man…”. He crucified Christ to placate the jews, who were on the thin edge of rebellion.
Pilate: What shall I do with your king?Mob: We have no King but Caesar!
Typical sociopathic beaurocrat, weaseled his way out of having to make the call and put the abomination back on the sociopathic pharises.
