When Seeing, Hearing and Speaking Evil Is Called Good!

see no evil

The DiscipleMD

We live in an age where all around us good is being called evil, and evil is now portrayed as good. Hold fast to any moral principle and sooner or later you will be called intolerant, judgmental, mean, unchristian,  a bigot, or some terms better left unwritten. I wonder what Lucifer and his followers called the obedient followers of the Father in the pre-existence? Sheep, Stepford children, uninformed! After all, Lucifer was the good guy. He was going to save everyone! What a wonderful thing, saving everyone! Of course, you must pledge allegiance to him and give up your agency! But hey, small price for being saved he told us. The Father offered his own plan of salvation and we rejoiced in following it.

Perhaps you recall some words written by John the Revelator. He wrote:

“And there was a war in heaven…and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation…and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” (Revelation 12:7,9-10)

Note that Satan was the “accuser of our brethren.” What was Satan accusing Christ and his followers of?  I don’t know for sure. But I do know that it seems today that if you scream that “evil” is good, long and loud enough,  some people begin to believe it. When I was a boy it was just common sense and knowledge that viewing and participating in something pornographic was not good.  The inherent nature of it screams out that in all its forms pornography is destructive to families and to individuals. No one pretended otherwise.  It was there, but it was not celebrated as a good thing. Today, if you listen to many, they not only promote it, but somehow those that speak against it are not tolerant or informed. In fact you are oft-times labeled to be a self-righteous person. By repeating that “evil” is good forcefully and loudly,  some are deceived into believing that something that is blatantly bad, is acceptable.  It is an old trick from the pre-existence. We know from the scriptures that a full third of the kingdom of God bought into Satan’s deceptive concepts.

We live in dangerous times. Let us be careful that we do not fall into the trap of seeing “evil” as “good”. It is easy to do when all  around us are the clamoring accusations of the masses that you do not have the right to impose “your” morals.  Well then, just whose morals should be imposed? Because having no moral code is a moral code!  Mocking sacred things has become an art and those that do it are called: progressives, innovators,  and talented artists. While those who take a stand for Christian values are berated as intolerant and uninformed. If we are not careful, we might fall for the same trick used so effectively in the pre-existence by Satan and his minions.

“We need the Spirit to be discerning for experience shows us that all that claims it is good, is not good. Things done in the name of tolerance may result in the most wicked kind of trampling of the freedom of others. The misled may call things unreasonable that come directly from the source of all light, truth and wisdom”. (“How Evil Poses As Good”, Proctor, Meridian).

“Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil” is a great maxim for living our life. But symbolically  it can also be used to represent “turning a blind eye” to the commandments of the Lord by never seeing, hearing, or believing anything can be spoken or done that is evil. By so doing we are putting our spiritual safety in jeopardy.  Jesus Christ was very loving towards sinners. But he was never a lover of sin. He came into this world to save us from our sins. If there isn’t any such thing as sin, why did he come? His mission in life was to preach and teach repentance from sin.

May we live our lives so that we can not only “discern” the good from the evil, but that we can have the courage to stand up and say so! Let us not fall prey to those who present evil as good.
