April 22 – What’s Up Is Down

“He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous, Both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord.” – Proverbs 17:15 (NASB)

We might make the heading of today’s post to be “What’s Wrong is Right and What’s Right is Wrong.” This may seem to you and many others that our system of justice has turned upside down and is skidding along on its roof. Disaster seems immanent and when it comes we’ll wonder why we did not see that iceberg immediately in our way. God does not condone and God will judge this twist on what He has declared right and just. It really is a result of verse 13 previous. “He who returns evil for good, Evil will not depart from his house.” The promise is not for a blessing but for embedded evil first we tolerate, second we excuse, and finally adopt as a belief. Nobody wants to be disapproved or called names but those who believe God and His Word and also stand against the wholesale embrace of social debauchery are being vilified and all who speak against this evil will also be scorned and subject to being cancelled, denied and detested. Calling evil good and giving it a pass while condemning the faith of those righteous to God – they are repugnant to the Lord.
