Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Isaiah 5:20

Cecil the lion is in the news.

He was a tagged lion that got shot and killed by a hunter.  Every type of celebrity is weighting in on this issue and all of them are calling this hunter a horrible names and are accusing of being a murder. Never mind the fact he was legally hunting this animal.  People are even calling for this man’s DEATH!!!! So why is everyone freaking out?   Because in the sinful and horrible condition of our country we cannot truly understand what is evil and what is not evil.

Common sense is completely dead.

We have Planned Parenthood leaders on camera talking about  SELLING THE BODY PARTS OF DEAD BABIES to a potential buyer, there was no national media outrage!!!  Jimmy Kimmel was not on his show crying over the fact that these BABIES were MURDERED!!! But yet he will get on his national comedy show weeping over a lion!  We don’t know up from down.  The reason this is happen is because we’ve turned our back on God.  And as a result God has sent us strong delusions and causing us to believe a lie.  Why?

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false,  in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

We have pushed God out of our hearts and minds as a culture for so long and chased our sin rather than him, because we love that sin more than him, so God has given our culture a push in that direction.  We look at evil and say it’s good and look at good and call it evil. 

You know why people love animals so much these days? Because we don’t really know how to love people well. Animals don’t talk back. They really don’t have an opinion. So it fits our narcissistic wants perfectly. We put animals over people because it’s easy.

So you know what Cecil the Lion reveals about us as a culture?  That animals have more rights than human beings (at least in the court of public opinion.)   God please save us from this madness!
