June 25 – The Right Response to Evil

Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mandela” teach us that the only lasting response to evil is love.” Those amazing words were spoken by William Murphy Jr., the Lawyer for the family of Freddie Gray, the 25 year old man who died while in police custody in Baltimore Maryland recently. Whatever this lawyer thinks of Bible Christianity, his statement is exactly in line with what the Bible teaches regarding evil. God does not condone wrong-doing, but He loves the wrong-doer. That`s clear from Jesus` words to a woman who had been caught in adultery, and brought to Him by self-righteous religious leaders. He first forced her accusers to admit that they too were guilty of wrong-doing. Jesus then turned to the woman, and said, “neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more.” God`s Word also says, “God demonstrates His own love toward us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” That is love responding to evil.
