Those espousing biblical principles need not have a head-in-the-sand mentality. We must recognize evil as evil, identify evil as evil and denounce evil as evil.
Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forevermore! From the rising of the sun to its going down, the Lord’s name is to be praised.
O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
Denouncing evil is not about bitterness, vengeance or bigotry. The prophet Amos admonishes, “hate evil, love good; establish justice in the gate.”
While we tend to focus on Job’s loss of family and fortune along with his intense physical suffering, in point of fact, it was his godly character that made him Satan’s target for a brief time.
For the Lord loves justice, and does not forsake His saints; they are preserved forever . . .
God’s holiness does not make Him aloof or disconnected from His creation. God is aware of all that takes place in the universe.
But as for me, I would seek God, and to God I would commit my cause—who does great things, and unsearchable,
marvelous things without number. He gives rain on the earth, and sends waters on the fields.
