A Word To The Wise

“Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the LORD, But the blameless in their ways are His delight” (Proverbs 11:20, NKJV). What is a perverse heart? One translation conveys the idea of twisted. Clearly, that word conveys a meaning. Isaiah said, in a different context, but with the principle extending itself: “Those who call evil good and good evil are as good as dead, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness, who turn bitter into sweet and sweet into bitter. Those who think they are wise are as good as dead, those who think they possess understanding. Those who are champions at drinking wine are as good as dead, who display great courage when mixing strong drinks” (Isaiah 5:20-22, NET).  RT
