Is evil good?

Posted by Elaine May 24, 2011 at 12:00 AM AEST

A popular trend these days is to describe something that is really good with words like bad, filthy or even fully sick. This can seem like harmless fun but surprisingly the Bible has something to say about the words we speak and the warnings are pretty serious:

In Isaiah 5:20, God says:
Destruction is certain for those who say that evil is good and good is evil; that dark is light and light is dark;

This scripture also goes on to warn those who think they are wise, or who brag about how much alcohol they drank last night.

If we aren’t careful we can become anaesthetised by the headlines or even our own surrounding into accepting a popular trend without acknowledging whether it’s right and wrong.

For example:
I’ve heard some women have considered having babies, aborting them, then selling the tissue for research. The scientific community is promoting this because of the ‘good’ they say the research will have on the whole of humanity! …… But what about the price these aborted lives would pay? Is one life more valuable than another?

If we aren’t careful, promotion of the apparent ‘good’ can distract us from the evil that needs to be present to activate the ‘good’.

Our life choices bring consequences, but that’s where forgiveness comes in.

Where is your heart on this issue? To see what God has to say about it, take the time to read Psalm 139 and ask God to show you what His truth is.

Then you will begin to see how relevant the Bible is for every situation you will face in life.
