According to the bible wicked people will mistake good things for bad and bad things for good. (Isaiah 5:20)
I couldn’t help but notice in the recent primary race how the media and liberals absolutely hated Rick Santorum. Obviously this isn’t a plug for Santorum as he’s long gone out of the race but I wanted to use him as an example of someone that was greatly despised because he had strong christian views for one thing.
“Santorum is a standing affront to the sensibilities and assumptions of the media and political elite. That elite is constantly writing the obituary for social conservatism, which is supposed to wither away and leave a polite, undisturbed consensus in favor of social liberalism. Santorum not only defends beliefs that are looked down upon as dated and unrealistic, he does it with a passionate sincerity that opens him to mockery and attack.” Lowry- NYPost
I had to ask myself so is it because he’s a bad guy they don’t like him? No, judging by what I know of him he’s a pretty good guy. He’s a christian, a family man and dedicated to upholding good moral standards.
On the other hand why are those who perpetrate evil deeds such as increase in abortions & gay rights rewarded by the liberal media with glowing adoration and better coverage?
(Isaiah 5:20,23) 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! ..23Which justify the wicked for reward and take aways the righteousness of the righteous from him!
Many people justify others evil behavior so they can be rewarded and seen as “good” people who are open-minded and non-judgmental. No surprise, scripture is fulfilled! This injustice is upsetting but we have to remember God will make all wrongs right. Evil may seem to get the upper hand sometimes in life we can be assured justice will win out in the end. God will ultimately destroy the devil and the workers of iniquity.
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)
