Playing Down Evil
© 2014

by


Stephen A. Peterson


In fact, everyone who wants to live a Godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

II Timothy 3:12-13 (NIV)


Since rationalization and reason was afforded humanity, there has been a tendency to play blind to evil by far too many. These believe the course of least resistance will save them from the effect of evil and the wickedness, destruction, and death it always renders. It is less disturbing, in their minds, to see no danger in going along to get along.

Yet humanity has constantly been warned against accepting evil. Edmund Burke, the 18th century, Irish philosopher stated and wrote: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing”. Yet for most, it is unthinkable that someone would walk off a mountain top, telling themselves it is not there; or after a person is falling a thousand feet to pronounce and exclaim, “Everything is going well so far.” So why do we cower when we witness evil all about without a word?

To close our eyes, stop our ears and seal our lips against evil changes nothing.

The first step in dealing with evil is the recognition of evil for what it is; the second is for us to acknowledge evil an insufferable wrong for which compromise is impossible; and third to speak up for what is right without fear.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
