Jackson Browne sang “I have done all that I could – To see the evil and the good”. He sang “Better bring your own redemption when you come – To the barricades of Heaven where I’m from.” But, per the Bible only Jesus brings true redemption.
Evil has been beating good frequently ever since the Creation of our tiny earth world. It just did it again (January 7, 2021). Evil won the day. Big, evil events have often splattered history: Eve fell for the Serpent’s lies Adam fell for the seduction of Eve’s greed and envy Man’s wanton sinfulness went worldwide […]
If you tolerate bad behavior, you in effect are condoning the bad. The Bible says here that the person who practices or permits or tolerates evil (evil = that which is not of God) cannot possibly be a true follower of Jesus.
You think it’s bad now, with all the rioting, looting, destruction and murder. Lawlessness is everywhere in the news. Lawlessness seems to reign in the streets. But prophecy predicts that lawlessness will get worse, much worse. Restraining evil Currently the Holy Spirit and His Spirit-filled Christians are “restraining evil“. From the bottom, up to the […]
Technologies are like putting a blow torch to a fire! Our evil quotient is increasing almost daily, just as Jesus predicted.
Pain and suffering, sickness, dying – it’s all part of the curse of God on the world because of sin, because man chose evil over obedience to God. The Fall of Man brought all of this down on us. It will be done away with by Christ – when we get to heaven. But what […]
…why all my pain and sorrow, sickness and suffering, depressed feelings and worries? It’s from the Fall of Man. The Fall of Man, falling away from God and into sin, is recorded in Genesis 3. We live to see the effects all the way throughout history, all the way into our own times – and […]

Jesus said this about light and darkness, what is good and what is bad: (Luke 11:33-36) 33 “No one lights a lamp and then puts it in a cellar nor under a basket [hiding the light], but [instead it is put] on the lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light. 34 The eye […]
“…with inexhaustible patience and [faithful] teaching.” You got it? INexhaustible patience? In our relations with other people, and especially those of the faith, the norm we aspire towards as Christians — is totally unreachable without the power of the Holy Spirit working in and through us. Quite a high standard! 2 Timothy 4:2 Amplified Bible […]
As mere humans, we are engulfed in the vortex of battle between good and evil. Whether we like it, or not, that is the reality within this world that God created.
