Darkness is still darkness, Light is still light!
There are still two trees. Only one teaches evil.
Evil now 'hollers' out, demands that it is correct. Evil binds its adherents. Goodness/holiness/righteousness is shouted down and falsely labelled as evil or hatred.
One man's sins are now honored by other men.
In the last days 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. (Isaiah 5:20)
'Christians' and pagans alike are unable to divide good from evil. Morality is jettisoned, virtue is at best a mere memory. And, life's divine compass within lies crushed under foot. Gay is now good. But, yesterday it was sodomy.
Few men can grasp this wicked sleight-of-hand, even less care to fight it.
Evil is honored and goodness/holiness/righteousness is dishonored.
A struggle exists within man and between men to define 'evil', for it is still recognized but not agreed on.
There exists no human measuring rod to grade evil, and no calculator to number it.
Science can't explain evil, let alone solve it.
Mankind is doomed to always fail as the only true God continues to be denied, resisted or lambasted. But, darkness will never enjoy the last word.
Mankind leaves himself open to all manner of malevolent air-bound spiritual authority. This is dressed up as lamb, but is truly a wolf.
No man is sufficiently skillful to create a correct sense of life without first consulting the Author of life, the Pioneer and Perfecter of the Christian faith.
Christian wisdom names the Darkness as darkness and the Light as light. It equips us learn how to live and work in the Light so that the darkness does not overcome us. ~ anon
There continues a righteous love amidst this pervasive darkness, but it is difficult to see.
