Good Is Evil And Evil Is Good

Isaiah 5:20 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! Many Christians only quote the first 7 words of this verse. Why is this when there are 2 very distinct sides to this?

casey, what is a god and goddess? What powers do they have? If hummans are gods and goddesses than what godly powers do they posses? How old is the bible? How many books of the bible are there? How many men were inspired to write the bible? With all the different books of the bible and the different men chosen to write it over thousands of years, how come it is so coherent and there are no inconsistencies?

Casey - You really think you are something don't you? Truth is you are no different from anybody else. In fact in God's eyes you are the same as Osama bin Laden or George Bush and every other human being on the face of this earth -- "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). You, like all else, are in need of salvation from sin.

Casey you think God and the Bible is a Fairy tale yet you accept Fairies and "sumarian dieties" (??) (are they on a low fat or the Adkins diet? Does Oprah know?).
I hope your Fairies don't get mad because you butchered the spelling of their title.
Who is this "They" you want to prove the Bible is true. You are the one that carries the burden of truth because if you are wrong (and you are) you have to pay the penalty no one else. So YOU had better find out yourself.

whatever, the bible is a man made faerie tale; until they can prove that there is a god or even heaven, I'll stick to the sumarian dieties .truth be known the god who saves you could be your very selves.we are gods and godesses.

M.P. there are many in our churches who, through ignorance, have very set ideas about what is good and what is evil. They'll say "If I don't understand it it must be evil." I agree that the verse you quote is God telling us 2 things. We must not call evil things good BUT we must also not call the good things that He has given us EVIL. We should be wary of things we don't understand but it is up to us to find out more about them, otherwise we might be missing out on wonderful gifts from God.

To ordain Sodomites in churches is calling evil good. To bash a preacher for preaching against Sodomy is calling good evil.

I,am amazed how people think that the word of God has all these gray areas open to personal interpretation.I guess thats why we have all the denominations within the church today. people let their flesh control their minds and lives and not the spirit .The light is the light, and the truth is the truth whether it be from whoever.but the truth is only of God. People convince themselves of truth when actually its not.Think of the religious leaders that crucified jesus? they thought they knew the truth.

mp, we have to remember the nature of the humans we often justify are actions and decisions in our minds without regard to Gods word. Convbiction through the holy spirit is necessary to bring about changes within any ones life so that their thinking aligns itself with Gods word.the distinct sides are spiritual truth, versus carnal with all things it,s either the truth or it,s not.

MP ... Now you put this into the context of your job, I see exactly what you mean.
There are those who will say that natural remedies are witchcraft, and of course those who say that modern medication is wrong because it comes from scientists who must be satanic because Evolution theory espoused by some scientists is satanic.
God gave us so much .. plants to use, and also brains to use.

The reason I asked this is because we often hear Christians saying that people like to cover their evil deeds by saying they are good. .As a (now retired) complementary therapist I was often accused of using evil things when I was simply using those things which God made. People would ask how I could possible use such New Age things and be a Christian. This verse also says WOE unto those who call good (the things of God) evil.

It is pretty much of a muchness. They are both swapping right for wrong and vice-versa.
---Helen_5378 on 6/30/06

I suppose it is easy to understand ... in each case there is the turning round of good and bad. I don't particularly see two distinct sides ... to call good evil is very much the same as calling evil good ... each is a denial of truth.
