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
Consider, if you will, a country in which its president’s first action in office was to close a oil pipeline which was important to our country’s energy needs and which employed thousands of Americans.
…a country whose majority political party builds a wall around its capitol building in order to separate itself from the citizens whom they are supposed to be serving..
…a country whose President and his Administration gave billions of dollars of our weaponry behind during a botched pull-out from a Radical Islamic Nation, leaving Islamic Terrorists in charge of it who worked with others who killed 3,000 Americans 20 years ago, leaving hundreds of Americans are trapped inside the country now.
…a country whose President announces with glee that he is going to require private businesses to force their employees to either get a vaccine that may require a booster or lose their job…increasing an already massive unemployment problem.
…a country whose President vows to fight a law protecting unborn babies having a heartbeat from getting ripped out of their mothers’ wombs.
a country whose President is obviously battling dementia, getting worse every day, and no one is making him step down because the cabal who is “handling” him will not allow it.
…a country in which the faith of 75% of its citizens is constantly attacked by the same people who constantly clqaim to be tolerant of others.
“You are traveling through a previously unknown country, a country whose population has politically been torn asunder, a country whose Democratic Leadership have forsworn its traditional faith and values to embrace those of its enemies. A country whose great promise is now being broken, subjugated to the wishes of a political minpority who follow the teachings of Karl Marx.
There’s a signpost up ahead. Next stop, Socialist America.”
This country has been pulling apart at the seams since Barack Hussein Obama was elected as our 43rd President.
The direction which the Modern Democratic Party has taken to the Far Left of the Political Spectrum has put them at odds with the majority of Americans who still hold dear the Traditional Faith and Values System upon which our Sovereign Nation was founded.
In an article written for Decision Magazine dated February 12, 2012, America’s Pastor, Rev. Billy Graham, wrote on the subject of “Confusing Evil With Good”. Here are some excerpts…
Humanity has always been dexterous at confusing evil with good. That was Adam and Eve’s problem, and it is our problem today. If evil were not made to appear good, there would be no such thing as temptation. It is in their close similarity that the danger lies.
Modern social righteousness often differs from the righteousness of the Bible. Someone has said: “A wrong deed is right if the majority of people declare it not to be wrong.” By this principle we can see our standards shifting from year to year according to the popular vote! Divorce was once frowned upon by society, and laws against fornication and adultery were strictly enforced. But now divorce is accepted by society, and fornication is glorified in our literature and films.
The Bible says: “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.” God has not changed. His standards have not been lowered. God still calls immorality a sin, and the Bible says God is going to judge it.
Honesty was once the hallmark of character. But it has been set aside with an “It’s all right if you don’t get caught” philosophy. Only when we are in court are we required to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
…How do we get our values so mixed up? How do we fall into this trap of Satan? For one thing, we’re shortsighted. We look for shortcuts to happiness. Our lust for immediate pleasure prompts us to think of evil as good.
In one of novelist John Steinbeck’s books he has a character saying: “If it succeeds, they will be thought not crooked but clever.” In our desire to achieve success quickly, it is easy to get our values mixed up and call evil good and good evil.
Another way to call evil good is to say that morals are relative. Someone has said: “As the occasion, so the behavior.” We have changed our moral code to fit our behavior instead of changing our behavior to harmonize with our moral code. Nothing is firm today. We are not on solid ground. Young people are shifting from one side to the other. Morally, they are drifting aimlessly without compass or guide.
Still another way that evil is called good is for the conscience to be perverted, and certainly our consciences today are perverted. But right is right even if nobody is right, and wrong is wrong even if everybody is wrong. God does not change the moral law to suit our behavior.
…The modern conscience has been twisted and distorted so badly that it is difficult to tell what is genuine and what is false.
Self-centeredness is another reason we are so inclined to call evil good. When something brings profit or pleasure to us we are inclined to call evil good, even though we know it is dead wrong. “But it’s what I’ve always wanted,” or, “It’s good for me, although I know it’s wrong” are the alibis we have manufactured to justify evil and call it good.
It is very apparent that there is something that is literally tearing apart the fabric of our country.
The only conclusion that I, as a Christian American can reach, is the fact that our Sovereign Nation is in the midst of SPIRITUAL WARFARE for its very soul.
Make no mistake about it, boys and girls, EVIL EXISTS.
My friends, I believe that we are fighting a war not just against the Chinese Coronavirus and the Taliban, but also against “princes and principalities”. Evil is still alive and well and flourishing in a world in which relative morality and situational ethics are increasingly being accepted as normal behavior.
We see it everyday around us.
It inundates the cable news channels and our country’s failing Liberal Newspapers like the New York Times. Heck, you can even see it on Facebook.
Since Cain slew Able with a rock, mankind, because we are all fallen creatures, has had to deal with the presence of evil in our lives.
From the legendary massacres, perpetrated by Vlad the Impaler, to the horrific scenes of Hitler’s Concentration Camps, to the killing fields of Pol Pot, to the massacre of innocent Middle Eastern Christians by Islamic State, to the murders by Chicago Street Gangs every night, the Forces of Evil continue to flourish across the globe.
Who we as a nation are struggling with are those forces who want to turn our country into not just an immoral society, but, an amoral one, whose concept of right and wrong is “Whatever Gets You Through the Night (It’s Alright. It’s Alright.)”, and whose ultimate authority is not the God of Abraham, but a Godless All-Powerful Central Government, whose credo is
From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs. (Karl Marx)
Just as Marxism has failed wherever it has been tried before, so, if allowed to do so, it would lead to America’s downfall.
The galling thing is the fact that, even though American Christians remain 75% of the population, we are propagandized and suppressed by the Liberals in both the Old and New Media, to make it seem as if WE are the Minority, when, in fact, WE are the overwhelming Majority.
It is this New Generation of Amoral Socialists, who have taken over the Democratic Party, who are in fact, just a tiny, albeit vocal, Minority of America’s population.
So, what can an average Christian American, like you and me, do about this “Tyranny of the Minority”?
Christians have to make a choice in these tough times whether to allow those who are attempting to “radically change” our Sovereign Nation, given to us by God into a Democratic Socialist Paradise or…
As the Apostle Paul tells us in Ephesians, we can STAND.
However, you cannot stand without “the full armor of God”. I have found, as have my family and friends, that the better that you are doing, in terms of your Christian Walk, the harder that you will be attacked.
10Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.…- Ephesians 6:10-12
Now, more than ever, in the midst of this pandemic, our Christianity as Americans does not and can not end at Noon on Sunday as we finish watching church services on the internet via our Smart TVs.
“Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.”
Because believe me, Americans…we are in one with three enemies. Two enemies are invisible and one is political.
Pray for those who are out “on the front line” fighting the Chinese Coronavirus every day and caring for those who are sick with it,
Pray for our country.
God Bless America.

One thought on “Sunday Morning Thoughts: An America Divided by Good Vs. Evil and “Princes and Principalities””
Thanks for the post. Brought me to a better place
Every year I am more amazed that parts of the Bible I thought I understood gain meaning.
– principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this age, spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places – seemed simple to understand
Did I ever conceive that so many of the rulers of the world would join against us? No. Yet it was there in the Bible, in the plural, but I looked at history as one war at a time
Even then my mind said when you defeat an army you win. But you dont win unless you defeat the system behind the army and the powers that prop up the system.
Macron, or Biden, or Trudeau can send armies against us which we must battle, but ultimately we must fight Macron, or Biden, or Trudeau and the powers behind them
The other concept my brain trivialized was the full armor of God. In this day and age, when we are being locked out of healthcare and right to travel or buy or sell, I feel like someone who has been denied the right to self defense. When I am in the colliseum, denied a sword and shield, my recourse is to ask God to wrap Himself around me and that will be my armor. My body may be killed, but my soul will be under His protection. Earthly armor does not protect your soul
