Dead Man Walking

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.
                                      —Isaiah 5:20

“There’s right and there’s wrong” said John Wayne. “You got to do one or the other. You do the one and you’re living. You do the other and you may be walking around but you’re dead as a beaver hat.”

Paul agreed, jotting a sentence about people who were walking around, but were dead … in transgressions and sins (Eph. 2:1).

“There’s right and there’s wrong,” said the Duke. It’s really as simple as that. No poll, no matter how lopsided on the side of wrong, can make it right. Legalizing a sinful lifestyle, no matter how many votes it gets or who signs it into law, can change it from wrong to right.

Israel tried to sanitize evil by renaming it “good.” Didn’t work then; won’t work now.

When in doubt, don’t.
