10 Mistakes People Make with Evil (plus 1 bonus)

Lightning fast read meant to make you think…

10 Mistakes People Make with Evil (plus 1 bonus):

1. Shrink back from confronting it. (Esther 4:14)
2. Overlook that all religions apart from Christianity are evil (lead people to hell and away from God). (Galatians 1:8)
3. Are ignorant of the fact that every single human being that has ever lived (and will live) has an evil heart (no one is immune). (Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:10)
4. Forget that it was our first parents that were responsible for the introduction of evil into the world. (Genesis 3:1-7)
5. Forget that Satan was cast out of heaven to earth and he brought evil with him (evil is everything that is opposed to God). (Luke 10:18)
6. Overlook that the very presence of evil is evidence of the existence of God (there is no such thing as a “bad” unless there is a “good”; how does one recognize “bad” apart from “good”?). (Genesis 2:9; Luke 6:45)
7. Don’t realize that evil is allowed so that people will have a choice (will you live for God or will you live for the devil?). (Romans 2:5-11)
8. Respond to “evil” with evil (evil is only defeated by good). (Romans 12:20-21)
9. Don’t realize that there is only one way of deliverance from evil thoughts, words and deeds (through the blood of Jesus Christ). (John 3:16; Romans 10:9; 1 John 1:9)
10. Are ignorant to the fact that evil will have one “last hurrah” before the return of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 12:12; 13:1-18)

BONUS Don’t realize that the whole of creation is about (in the midst of) the God of Heaven ridding the universe of evil (He broke its power through Jesus Christ’s death on the cross) while rescuing a people for Himself. (Revelation 19:7; Philippians 1:6)
