  1. Calling Evil Good Tim Haile

  2. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “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) Some People Attempt To Make Evil Appear Acceptable By Calling It By Another Name This Is One Of Satan’s Oldest Tactics (Genesis 3:4, 5)

  3. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Enlightenment” (Rejection of Biblical Moral Standards - Superior Reason) 1 Sam. 15:3 - Saul Was Instructed To “Smite Amalek…Kill Man, Woman, Child, Infant, Cattle, Sheep, Camels and Donkeys” But Saul Placed Himself Above God’s Law, Spared Agag and Best Animals (9), Reasoned That Sacrifice Was Better (15) Constituted Rebellion (vss. 22, 23)

  4. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Progressive” (Not Restricted By Doctrinal Truths & Patterns) May Sound Good To Be “Progressive,” But In Religion The Progressive Mentality Is Sinful: 2 John 9 - “Anyone who goes too far and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God; the one who abides in the teaching, he has both the Father and the Son.” The Expression “Goes To Far” Means “To Progress Beyond…”(some standard)

  5. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Progressive” (Not Restricted By Doctrinal Truths & Patterns) Must Speak God’s Words (1 Peter 4:11; Acts 26:22; Isa. 8:20) Must Not Modify God’s Word (Gal. 1:6-9; Rev. 22:18, 19) Must Do All Things According To The Pattern (Heb. 8:5)

  6. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Pro-Choice” (Actually Pro-Murder) People Like The Idea Of Being “Pro” or “For” Things (Rather Than “Against” Things) People Also Like Their Freedom To Choose (Liberty), Thus “Pro-Choice” Sounds Quite Honorable God Is Even “Pro-Choice” In a Certain Way (Pro Free Agency)

  7. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Pro-Choice” (Actually Pro-Murder) “Pro-Choice,” However, Is A Misnomer - It May Sound Noble, But It Describes Those Who Favor The Killing of Innocent Unborn Babies Abortion Is Murder - Unborn Humans Are Nonetheless Human (Jer. 1:5; Ps. 139:13-16; Luke 1:41; 2:12) Murder Is Sin (Gal. 5:21)

  8. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Living Together” (Actually Fornication) The Term “Living Together” Suggests The Wholesome Notion Of Mutual Help & Support (Eccl. 4:9-12) The Term Actually Describes A Relationship Involving Unmarried Sex Fornication Is Sin (Gal. 5:19; Matt. 15:19; 1 Cor. 6:18; Rev. 21:8)

  9. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Gay” (Actually Homosexuality) The Term “Gay” Originally Meant “Happy, Cheery, Carefree,” Then “Bright or Showy” The Term Now Describes The Perverse Behavior of Homosexuals Homosexuality Is Sin (Rom. 1:26, 27; 1 Cor. 6:9; 1 Tim. 1:10; Jude 7; Gen. 19; Lev. 18:22; 20:13; Judg. 19)

  10. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Fashionable, Stylish, Chic” (Clothing) (Often Immodest Clothing, or Lasciviousness) People Want To “Fit In” - Want Their Children To Be Liked and “Accepted” At School Problem: “Stylish” Clothing Is Often Immodest Clothing Gen. 3:7, 21; Ex. 28:42; 20:26; Isa. 47:2, 3; 1 Tim. 2:9

  11. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Freedom of Expression” Is Often Used To Describe and Defend Profanity & Pornography Filthy & Destructive Language Is Condemned (Eph. 5:4, 12; 4:29) Principle of Pornography Stated in Ezek. 23:14-16 Matt. 5:28; Job. 31:1; Psa. 101:3; Phil. 4:8

  12. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Welfare” = Government Program Funded by Exaction of Tax Money To Support Non-Workers (Sounds Good - We Are Interested In The Welfare of Others) THE PROBLEM: Many Welfare Recipients WON’T WORK (2 Thess. 3:10; 1 Tim. 5:8) One-Talent Man Buried His Talent (Matt. 25:25), And Was Punished

  13. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Ambitious” (Often Used In The Sense Of Covetous Behavior) “Ambition” That Is “A Strong Desire To Do Or Achieve Something” Is Biblical (Eccl. 9:10; Col. 3:23) “Ambition” That Desires To Have What Other Men Have Is Sinful (Col. 3:5; Luke 12:15-21; 16:13-15) - Kin To Materialism (1 Tim. 6:10, 17)

  14. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Frugal” (Often Used To Describe Behavior That Is Actually Stingy) While It Is Wise To Be Careful With Our Money, We Must Also Be Generous (Rom. 12:8; 2 Cor. 9:5-13) Ex. Tabernacle Offerings (Ex. 25:2; 36:5-7 - “more than enough”) Good Samaritan (Lk. 10:33-35) Poor Widow (Lk. 21:1-4)

  15. Calling Evil Good - Isaiah 5:20 “Building Esteem” (Substitute For Child Discipline) It Is Said That “If You Spank a Child You Will Ruin His Self-Esteem.” THE PROBLEM: Children Have TOO MUCH Self-Esteem - Discipline Is Necessary (Instructive & Physical) (Prov. 22:15, 6; 3:11, 12; 13:24; 23:13, 14; 19:18; 29:15; Eph. 6:4)
