Evil vs. Truth

18 01 2014

21909694_sWe are in a series called What is Love Anyway? To read all of this series on love scroll back to The Beatitudes of Love, beginning on 11/9/2013. We have finished the different words for Love in the bible and now we are looking at the seventh and final hindrances to love, evil.

“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.”

1 Corinthians 13:6

We define evil in its noun form as profound immorality, wickedness, and depravity, esp. when regarded as a supernatural force. It’s other use as an adjective 8621117_s(an attribute), evil is profoundly immoral and malevolent.

We learned earlier in our study of love how God delights in us and so this use of the word delight is important as it is deepens our understanding of the impact of evil. Evil is a very powerful thing. Evil is the direct opposite of truth. We think of good and evil, which are human measures, while God thinks of truth (the quality or state of being true) as the opposite of evil.

My life was one of profound immorality, wickedness, and depravity, growing up in the occult.  It was devoid of love.  As I grew I wanted the truth because I knew “good” people did bad things. Good can masquerade itself like the devil, offering Eve the apple in the garden, while truth brings freedom and it is why I am a Christian today.

“Know the truth and the truth will set you Free.”

John 8:32

Rejoice now and always in the truth, because the truth given in love, brings freedom!

 

Blessings and Complete Joy,
