Are we responsible for perpetuating the darkness.

Are we responsible for perpetuating the darkness. 

 
When looking at the condition of our lives and the state of our union, one has to wonder if by being accepting of evil we have not only ushered in the darkness but welcomed it. 
Evil is a malignancy that mutates to avoid detection and breaks down our ability to safely remove it without causing damage to the good that co-exists with it. 
When we should have expelled and rid ourselves of it, we became complacent and allowed it to flourish and thrive. 
Now that the darkness is so embedded in our society most can't see it, let alone expel it. 
Now that the darkness is in control of our government and every institution that governs our lives and every day affairs, it can't be removed. 
We were warned to expel evil people, but instead we accepted and even embraced them. 
Now that we have fertilized and nurtured the darkness, what we are reaping, is what we have sown. 
 
 
 
“Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.””
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭5:8-13‬ ‭NIV‬‬

In some ways I agree that we have. One thing in particular that always irritated me was the habit of my fellow Christians to view forgiveness as a license to sin. The big scandal with the Duggar family this past year is a good example. Here we had a repeat offender from teens to young adult molesting his own little sisters, and fans of the show said, "He apologized and went to counselling*, so everybody has to forgive and accept him". But the message that sends is that there are no real and lasting consequences for even the most egregious sins, and the victim must smile, forgive, and endure the aftermath in passive silence or be branded "unloving". If anyone actually stands for the Bible's teachings and waits for evidence of true brokenness, repentance, and empathy for the victims, that person is treated worse than the one who sinned.

* The alleged counselling was a family friend who was convicted on multiple counts of child porn, and the alleged punishment was a summer of hard outdoor work. The alleged apology and repentance was all about how failure to say he was sorry would ruin his own life; no real compassion was shown to his sisters.

In society at large, the same is true in principle: we excuse celebrities and politicians for any and all heinous crimes, while arresting 8 yr. old kids for forming a sandwich into the shape of a gun. We embrace all sorts of depravity in the name of tolerance, while forbidding any display of loyalty to the constitution. We point at one particularly small country in the ME for war crimes, while our own armed forces bomb everybody in sight for not complying with the international banksters. We punish companies that abuse animals while making excuses for the likes of Planned Parenthood laughing about dismembering babies and selling their parts for profit.

God will judge each of us individually for our own sins of omission or commission, but collectively the whole modern world should not be surprised when the wrath of God begins. Yet we already know the reaction of most: to blame God for all their suffering.

Very true, that was the thought process I was trying to envoke. I've experienced in my own lifetime; The introduction of Playboy magazine, and remember the comment " they are only showing breast, it was passed as entertainment for gentleman. For that acceptance of evil, spawned every vile sexual deviancy, made readily available online and television for our children to be corrupted by, their childhood was stolen. By the first introduction and acceptance of this type of evil, laws have been enacted to force participation in homosexual behaviors and lifestyle. Once again the children suffer by association.

There is no doubt we are put in a temporary flesh body to learn from our mistakes and take these soul lessons to the next step our Lord has prepared for us. I can tell you I've learned my lesson, if I see something even realitivly evil, if I can't run it off, I'm heading the other way!

We should have been fighting for 2015 years now, the whole system we live our lives in now is evil and corrupt. Just a remnant left who stand and fight evil, the rest either participate condone or are complacent.

I agree even though we've been:  manipulated, brainwashed, controlled, lied to, endured a suppression of knowledge, and so on.  The thing is; we've always had that one faint voice (more like a thought/feeling) telling us wrong from right in everything we do.  However, we've allowed ourselves to make up whatever we want to believe. We've allowed ourselves to follow the actions of others, the state, media, our minds(which are easily manipulated), and more. I believe every human being knows this inherently.  Now it's just a matter of accepting the harsh truth and realizing what the next steps are.  Me personally, I'm at the initial step of accepting the harsh truth about this world and myself. 

Just by being apart of this system makes one responsible for perpetuating darkness.  This is probably why the only way to heaven is through Christ, and Christ alone.  There is almost no way to escape the system as everything is connected.  Heck, it even looks like religion itself has been tainted by this system of darkness.  Everything is connected to this system that we call life.  Critical thinking alone will show what force drives and influences this world.  It doesn't matter if you're a citizen of an industrialized nation, or a member of the Maasai in the Serengeti; you're still apart of the system.  Unfortunately, complacency just may be one our biggest problems as a people. Complacency might just be the biggest accomplice to this system of darkness.  Masses, and I mean masses are guilty of just that:  complacency.  Hey. as long as there's food on the table, a roof over your head, and clothes on your back; everything's peachy right?  Exactly....   The ones whom are actually fighting the good fight, and living righteously are probably consists of such a small percentage of earth's population that it's sad.  

"We should have been fighting for 2015 years now, the whole system we live our lives in now is evil and corrupt."  I absolutely agree with this statement.  What about all of the many generations before us that didn't stand up to this system.  Let's not even mention revolutions and civil wars since those are all godforsaken products of this system of darkness.  The type of revolution I'm thinking of goes way beyond any manmade war where physical violence ensues. 

Understand that I'm admitting my very own guilt in all of this.  That has to be one of the first steps in my honest opinion.  The next step will be actions to take after coming to this realization?  What am I going to do it?  An answer to that question is something that I must seek.  I sure hope that others are doing the same.

You really put this post in perspective. I also agree that admitting oneself as part of the problem is the first step in the distancing process.

The remnent that is left will have learned the greatest of lessons, that the smallest of evils are only seeds that grow into the largest of demons if left unchecked. 

A storms coming. 

As long as we keep our faith and stand our ground, and listen not to the serpent, God will make a way for us, of that I'm certain.
