Bearing False Witness and

Calling Good, "Evil."

When I was a young girl, I recall first having heard about the scripture that told of how in the very end, good will be called evil and evil will be called good.

At that time I just did not see how such could ever come to be. It just seemed so odd to me, to think that people live in such a lying society.

That is what it would take. That is what it does take. As, here we are. We are in the days when good is called evil, and evil is called good. And sadly, the church is not immune from this behavior.

So, just what are we as believers supposed to do when we fall victim to lying lips and to people who call our good works, evil?

Scripture teaches us to keep going forward in our work that is of the Lord. We cannot take up our time fighting our enemies, even those who are brothers in Christ. We have work to be done.

There is nothing Satan would like more than for us to keep fighting those who trash us, lie about us, put ill towards us. We have a country that is being stolen from us, right from under our noses. Do we really have time to fight the petty fights of those who choose to live in shame?

We are told to put on the armor of God for a reason. We are in a battle here. And some times our own brothers and sisters in Christ don't hold up well and betray us, as Peter betrayed Jesus.

Ephesians 6: 

7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:

8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,

20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:

22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.

23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
