Craziness is the new normal. There are more than two sexes. Having no borders is good. Vaccines are required for citizens, but not for illegal immigrants. Identification is fine for everything but voting. Killing babies in the womb is fine even though we know beyond all doubt that they are fully human and have feelings. Releasing criminals is humane, and defunding police is good. Eliminating personal responsibility for health transcends HIPPA privacy, religious objections, scientific debate, and personal freedom. Christians are bad while rioters are good. Legal gun owners are bad, but Hollywood, video game, and Netflix promotion and glorification of violence is sophisticated and good. Everything is upside down. Chaos reigns. Something bad has oozed into our world.
Oozing is a great word for a crossword puzzle, but that is about all that is good about the word. When something is oozing, there is usually a problem. Right now evil is oozing everywhere, it seems we are living in a horror movie with bad stuff oozing down the streets shallowing up cars, buildings and people. Evil ooze has overwhelmed our media, government, schools, large cities, and major corporations. I have heard people ask who is really behind all of this. Is there a mastermind pulling the strings that control the world’s governments?
The answer is that there is, but it is not one person, rather it is that inner evil in all of us. This inner evil flows out when we think that we are the answer, and joins with an even darker evil that in turn draws out the evil in others. People become so consumed with this evil that they are blinded to the obvious benefits of freedom, private property, the rule of law, and our Constitution. They embrace ideas with no basis in truth or reality. They live on hate. They long for chaos.
We who are not consumed by this evil must remember: “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12)
All is not lost. Evil is lost to the Son of God long ago, and is already beginning to turn on itself once again. All over the world the ooze is gradually being exposed to the light of truth.
When considering what to do now, remember that the only fear we should have is fear of God and His judgement. Do what is right and do not be consumed by the nothingness of the evil ooze.
