"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter."
- Isaiah 5:20
 
When I read this it reminded me of the fight to keep the Ten Commandments in public places.
 
There have always been perverters of the truth and righteousness, and there always will be. But the God of justice calls out His woe upon all such things. Deceivers of every type are under the wrath of the God of truth.
 
There are teachers in our schools and colleges that call evil good by declaring that the Moral Law in the Ten Commandments is no longer in force. Many writers of fiction delight to put darkness for light, and light for darkness.  Then there are judges who for bribes  will pervert law and justice. But the worst of all are the false prophets that pervert religious truth and corrupt God's Word. They tone down the Law and make little of the wrath of God over man's sins. They preach a gospel which is not a true Gospel, when they take out the atoning blood of Christ. I would say it is like the text, bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.  They also deny hell and make heaven . . .

They will be like having both feet planted in midair.
 
Although biblical moral absolutes don't automatically solve all complex situations, they do provide a firm standard of truth to start with. Without this we are left with the same problem of Isaiah's day when people called evil good, and good evil.
 
Christian friends, let us take heed that we learn what is true and right and speak only the truth and support only those who speak and act righteously. With the Bible, however, we do have something unshakable on which to stand.
 
      O LORD, correct my vision
      So dim and warped by sin
      That through Your Spirit's blessing
      Truth may shine clear again.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - God's truth stands any test.
