What is EVIL and Why EVIL?

Timothy 3:1-4 says” But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God

People have asked from generation to generation why is so much evil in the world? And Jesus tells us the reason for it, it’s because of SIN...when tell people the reason for evil the world just don’t understand what Jesus is saying, there are some saints that don’t understand. We ask how or why would a LOVING GOD allow so much pain, hurt, and poverty in the land? Answer is man’s sinful nature! Man has a choice either do what the Lord says or do it man’s way. God will not force Himself on any of us.

All of these things in which Timothy has spoken about are pure evil, see you and I view evil differently than God, when we think of evil we think of someone hurting someone by murdering or raping them. And they are evil things but let’s go a bit deeper and see it through the heart of God what he also calls evil shall we? 

God calls this evil as well, when a person slanders someone, when children are disobedient to their parents and so forth. Now if you and I will be honest with ourselves and line this scripture with our lives you and I will be able to see the truth that we have some evil influences in us which God is not pleased with and that we have better get rid of it, before it destroys us.

What is it about evil that people allow such a spirit to influence them? Why are people drawn to it? EVIL is real and we must recognize it for what it is. When you see a person causing dissension among the people take heed, when you see someone who is ready to plot harm or run and spread lies about a person while trying to tear down his or her character, take heed. Recognize that this is EVIL, and most of the time the person who is doing evil don’t even see that they are in the wrong. To them it’s normal behavior, but it’s far from normal.


EVIL is not your friend nor does it loves you. EVIL hates you so don’t befriend it. EVIL has only one agenda to destroy YOU

    Aw, you are so sweet and kind sis. God is so good. One of the things I have noticed over the years about the Boldness that God has given me. Is that not everyone knows how to receive me.

    They automatically day that I have an attitude issue. It use to bother me but God has given me thick skin. But still it hurts at times when people say that to my face.

    Thank you so much for stopping by. 🙏😀

    Thank you, Wendy. I totally agree we need more boldness. Although I think that there are more people who are bold it’s that they are probably afraid to speak what God tells them.

  7. Yes, that is very sad but true!😢😢😢

  8. Great post. May God grant us discernment as it is becoming increasingly harder to ‘see’ the evil masked under the guise of good. Not everything that appears good is God.
