"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" - Isaiah 5:20
In this day and age we live in the things that our hearts, and most importantly, the WORD OF GOD tell us are EVIL (sin), our society now calls GOOD.
The things our society calls EVIL (Christian beliefs) are things our hearts and the WORD OF GOD say are GOOD.
One example of this is found in homosexuality. The Bible clearly calls it sin/evil (an abomination - Leviticus 18:22) yet today our society says IT IS GOOD!
Another example is found in abortion.
The Bible clearly says the BABY in the womb is a BABY (with RIGHTS), and is a living human. But the evil act of abortion is called GOOD by society, as “after all, it is a fetus a piece of tissue, not a baby”, and also it would be BAD (evil) if they say to bring “it” (being as they call it a fetus) into the world if unwanted by the mother or parents.
We BIBLE believing Christians are called EVIL for taking a stand for morality against the murdering of millions of babies (abortion), etc…
Likely, my taking a stand against homosexuality and abortion will cause me to lose some readers, but it is TRUTH!
Yet believing the TRUTH does not make me not love (with God's love) the homosexual, the abortionist, or the person having the abortion because my heart goes out to them as the devil has had them believe a LIE. I love them and all others and pray that anyone who does not know Jesus will come to know Him.
Yet our LOVING people who do wrong (sin, evil) doesn’t mean it makes their sin okay!
SIN is SIN and we must start calling it as it is!
Our society and our nation don’t need a weak church (i.e., Christians), but a church that will call evil evil, good good, dark dark, etc...
These are only two areas of concern where we see THE DECEPTION OF A SINFUL SOCIETY. There are many more examples that we can think of that this verse would apply to.
I sense an urgency that we who are Christians need to be living the truth, sharing the truth, and praying for a society that is so in need of GOD.
It starts with US (you and me)!
Let us proclaim God's truth in the face of darkness.
As one minister of the Gospel put it,
“America you're too young to die!”
and as another minister put it,
“If God does not judge the sin of this nation, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”
Christians we need to take a stand for the TRUTH as revealed in the Bible and Christians we need to Pray for our society here and around the world!
Please take these words to heart and feel free to pass this, or any of my devotions, on to others. All I ask is that you use them in their entirety.
In His Service,
One of them said; that’s easy. See that guy standing in the back? Well, we just put two sticks in his hands and we call him a Drummer.
The other responded; well, if we take one stick away, we call him a Conductor!
