It is hard to distinguish between good and evil these days. The world is constantly redefining the two. Bad has become good, right has become wrong, true has become false, and nothing is what it seems to be. Everything has a “spin” on it. That’s the new term.
There’s nothing really new about redefining good and evil. The ancient Greek sophists made their living putting a “spin” on anything for pay. Whatever view one wanted; the sophists could justify it. Many lawyers practice sophistry today. And sadly, so do many people who claim to be Christians.
Good and evil are absolutes. God defines them in his Word. To avoid the confusion, we must continually define our values in the light of what God says. Otherwise, we, too, will be confused by the “spin”.
Isaiah said, “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).
Watch out for the “spin,” Christian. The results can be dizzying.
To the Point!
