Hot Air

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭63:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬

 

In our society today, the “hot air balloons” are sailing high.
Out of so many mouths comes “hot air”. There are numerous people who are full of hot air! (full of beans, full of bull, full of it; full of prunes)
We have come to expect lies, exaggerations, and nonsense—just check out our media. Sadly, we behave as if there are no consequences; but, each lie empowers the evil one. Standing for the truth and what is right may be tough sometimes and may lead to persecution, but the end results are blissful.

Evil

He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”
‭‭John‬ ‭8:44‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Evil
By definition, evil is profound immorality and wickedness, especially when considered as a supernatural force.
When we look at all the cruel events happening in our world, how can we explain them without thinking about “good vs evil”. It seems to me that we have lost our moral compass by living however we feel is right. Our legislators and judges and politicians are such champions of individual “rights” that they condone so much bad behavior for society. And society has chosen the “easy” path of accepting it. Tolerance of unacceptable behavior has been bullied into our culture. Why? I believe that evil is behind the lies that many want to believe.
