What About Evil?

Church Shooting Sutherland Springs

Pure evil showed his face today, Nov 5th, in Sutherland Springs.  Yes, on Guy Fawkes day.  

Long ago we were warned that those who sow the wind will reap the whirlwind, Hosea 8:7.  

The Biblical concepts of good and evil have been largely rejected by our progressive culture. Inclusion and diversity have pushed back three thousand years of Judaeo Christian heritage.  

Isaiah 5:20
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet 
and sweet for bitter!

Surely it is time to encourage a return to Biblical ethics and morality.  Guns are not the problem.  Evil  ungodliness is the problem. Any person who is truly following Jesus would not murder innocent people.  

Many who have claimed to follow Jesus have been murderers, but they can only murder when they have rejected Jesus and His teachings. A culture of evil inflicts madness upon those who are not protected by the blood of Jesus.  Love from a sincere faith is the solution to evil.

Warning Against False Teachers

1 Tim 1:3 As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus so that you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine, 4 nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship[a] from God that is by faith. 5 The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 6 Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions.
