The practicality of pursuing evil is simply unpractical. Besides the trouble it causes the evil doer it also affects many others. In many cases unfortunately, it can lead to a very hot and miserable un-existence.
A point being is you would think after centuries of repeat performances by the Herod’s of the world, those who indulge such folly would wake up and walk out of the fire. Realizing it doesn’t work has been done over and over. So why are so many still trying?
They believe they can out-do Herod, Hitler or Putin?
They don’t believe the Bible?
It couldn’t possibly be they are stubborn and prideful could it?
Or power-hungry and selfish?
Maybe they’re just…….
We know what happened to Herod and Hitler. Putin……..….is a walking time bomb.
Refusing to read, much less believe God’s word is willful negligence and worthy of a life sentence without it.
Ill-gotten gain of anything is a gamble. It’s like telling the slot machine you’re going to play until you run out of money? Duh….
For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care then how you hear, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away.” (Luke 8:17-18 ESV)
Years of my own ignorance to the truth prompted me to begin the search. At least I was practical enough to realize how often I was making a fool out of myself. Don’t get me wrong here I still have a longggggggggggggggggg way to go but I am not where I was.
Many don’t see the fool the enemy is making out of them. Evil does that. Beyond sinning against God you would think the incentive to stop looking stupid would be enough to want to change it. Considering the sinister events people are pursuing these days evidence proves many would prefer pride over righteousness. Well, we know where that leads.
The ultimate life by those who deem to be right over the truth is a sign of an earthly un-existence.
The earthly un-existence may end up in an extended one. Literally.
In other words wise-up!
