Living In Evil Times

We live in evil times, and it’s getting worse.

Evil people are taking the lives of strangers because they’re different.

Evil politicians from both political parties are pushing division and hatred of the other party.

Evil “entertainers” are promoting violence, hatred, and rebellion against God.

Evil people of every skin color are pushing distrust and hatred of people of other “races.”

We embrace the “right” of a mother to murder her unborn child, and then we wonder why someone thinks it’s OK to murder men, women, and children on the streets of Dayton or in a Walmart in El Paso.

We’re only tolerant of those who agree with us, and we hate those who don’t.

It’s not a gun issue, or an immigration issue.  It’s a hate issue.  And it’s an issue of evil.

We’ve believed the lie that it’s OK to hate others because they look different, think different, have different politics, come from a different place, or have different beliefs.

Why have we embraced this evil lie?  Because we’ve been deceived by the father of lies, Satan.

We’ve been deceived into believing Satan doesn’t exist.  Satan has deceived us into believing that God doesn’t exist, or, if He does exist, He’s irrelevant.  He’s deceived even most in the Church into believing the lie that the Bible’s teaching is irrelevant (except when convenient), the lie that God doesn’t truly love us, and the lie that goodness comes from our hearts, not from obedience to Jesus Christ.

Our culture hates, because we are sinners who have rejected Jesus Christ, and have replaced Him with the evil lie that we can do whatever we choose.

We live in evil times, and the culture will continue to become even more evil, unless we repent and turn to Jesus Christ, and follow Him.

I pray we do, but I’m not holding my breath.
