“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.”

Isaiah 5:20
 
 
   

Nations go to ruin whenever they reverse the commandments of God. The Most High not only has authority to determine good and evil, He also has the power to enforce His authority upon all of the nations of the world. Persistence in disobedience will always bring divine judgment. When men produce their own ethical codes which give allowance for their own evil desires, they are calling evil good. When they endeavor to silence the teaching of Biblical moral absolutes in the family, school, church, and media, they are calling good evil. Shame ought to attend all evil conduct; shame acts as a retardant to the acceptance and spread of evil. But those who call evil good work hard to remove shame from the public perception. As moral decline increases, shame decreases. As shame decreases, moral pioneers take society to yet lower levels of atheistic ethics, sexual perversions and financial pillaging. The shame attached to these worse evils must then be denied as well, and the cycle repeats itself until God whistles. God whistles? I am referring to Isaiah again. After saying, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil,” he says of God (in 5:26) “He will lift up a banner to the nations from afar, and will whistle to them from the end of the earth; surely they shall come with speed, swiftly.” When God whistled, the Assyrian army came and devastated the nations and carried them into exile because they had reversed God’s moral standards. Friend, there is a “woe” to all who persist in sin. Our atheistic public education, sexual perversions, greed, and religious vanities come at an infinite price: ultimately everlasting punishment.
