I was on a Zoom meeting with a bunch of old guys. One of the questions we were throwing around was how people could do the things they do. Look at the media types that blatantly lie about everything and still go home and sleep at night. Watch Nancy, Chuck and Adam set out to manipulate the political process and they still get reelected. No one seems to have an understanding of why.
It is simple: Evil.
We as Americans have lived in a sheltered world. The warlords of history have walked softly around us because our robust republic was anchored in Biblical values. Even people who did not believe in the God of the Bible were willing to stick in the ballpark with the values it taught. That has been withering for years and we are seeing that we are returning to the days of early Israel:
(Jdg 17:6 KJV) In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes.People today all want to do their own thing. Church attenders reject the parts of the teaching that limits their self gratification. People have turned away from God. The book of Proverbs tells us what is motivating them.
(Pro 4:16-17 KJV) For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall. For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.When you watch the talking heads on TV and listen to them on the radio remember that they are only going to be happy when they drag you down. This is what goes on in the riots we see being portrayed as peaceful protests. They steal what they can carry and destroy what they can’t. The object is to ruin everyone else and then go back to their lair and party. Tomorrow there will be new victims.
They thrive on it. It is called evil and it is rampant in our society. The question is are there enough good people left to sway things right.
Let’s hope so.
