Behind Every Evil

Posted on: 7-15-112015

The past few nights the inspiration for my blog has come from the recent terrorist attacks in Paris last week.  Tonight is no exception.  For a whole week, this has been the top focus on the news, in the newspaper, and on all avenues of social media.  Opinions are all over the board regarding this topic and topics related to it.  People are angry and scared and as a result, the blame game is in full effect. I’ve been saddened to see that even God has been blamed by some for allowing this kind of tragedy to occur.  We all are guilty of choosing our own way over God’s way, yet when the consequences of shutting Him out are played out, we tend to want to blame Him for them.  I’ve also realized that not many people are placing the blame where it really belongs and that is on Satan.  No matter who the terrorists are, they are just puppets on a string being manipulated by the evil one.  No matter what evil plans they concoct, he is responsible for giving them the ideas.  No matter what weapons they use, he is the one ultimately using them.  He is the one who seeks to steal, kill, and destroy and he will do whatever necessary to carry out his devastation.  He has no goal other than to hate us and cause us the most pain he possibly can.  When we blame God for what Satan has done, he wins.  When we allow devastation to draw us away from God, Satan wins.  When we don’t recognize him for the liar he is, he wins.  Don’t be fooled…every single evil in this world belongs to him.  We may be focused on fighting terrorists or whatever other form of evil is in front of us, but we would be remiss if we do not arm ourselves with the armor of God and fight the one who is really to blame.

“The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy…” John 10:10
