Distorted by Darkness

Kathy—Many of the battles we are seeing erupt in our nation are starting from the wars within people because hatred or deception or pride or greed or fear or lust or revenge has divided their heart and conscience.  Here again is the divide and fall principle.  A conscience that is divided has a tainted sense of right and wrong and cannot stand as a moral guide.  Just consider corrupt politicians and fake news media that have divided themselves from truth and accuracy to boldly lie and mouth a weaponized script.  Their consciences have been so distorted by darkness that they call evil good and good evil.  Isaiah 5:20 spells out the results of such subversion:  “Woe (pain or grief) to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!  You accept bribes to let the guilty go free, and you cheat the innocent out of a fair trial.   You will go up in flames like straw and hay.”
