3-13-2017 Good & Evil
God, through Moses, told Israelites: “See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil” (Deuteronomy 30:15 NKJV). Solomon ask God for “an understanding heart” “that I may discern between good and evil” (1 Kings 3:9 NKJV). God’s prophet, Amos, said: “Hate evil, love good” (Amos 5:15 NKJV). To Christians, Paul wrote: “Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good” (Romans 12:9 NKJV). The difference between “good” and “evil” is clearly drawn, described, and determined. Jesus said, “the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth–those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation” (John 5:28-29 NKJV). There are not enough “shades of gray” to confuse those who follow God’s Word.
