No matter where you live in the world, you see the injustice of others all the time. Many times, we experience the injustice because of our faith. What this world has to offer is usually the wrong things. We see where truth is treated unfairly by those of the world and we see them push their wickedness upon us. They do not want us pushing God's word upon them. We the righteous are supposed to change our belief to fit into society. We read of the court system forcing people to undergo "sensitivity training" or "tolerance" training because those people have chosen to let God teach them the truth. Recently, some people filmed some of the gross and inhumane things done to children. The justice turns a blind eye to the baby killers and decides to prosecute those who were trying to expose the inhumanity taking place. Some business owners have had to shut down because the government was willing to force them to violate their beliefs. This is nothing new. Notice in Habakkuk 1:4 "therefore, the law is ignored and justice is never upheld. For the wicked surrounded the righteous; therefore justice comes out perverted". Many of the prophets spoke of the spiritual condition of the people in their day, and we see much the same thing today.
God warned these people by saying in Isaiah 5:20 "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness".
Jesus warned us that those who would speak the truth would become victims of this perverted justice. But Jesus also told us that if we were to suffer injustice because of Him and His teaching that we would be blessed. Jesus died because of injustice, and so did many of the apostles and early Christians. Since those days, the followers of Jesus have been mistreated and persecuted. It must be a popular thing to do because it continues.
These people who exposed the atrocities of Planned Parenthood are being called the vilest words imaginable, while the dismembering and selling of baby body parts is extolled as a great thing.
Those who speak the truth of God's word are treated with such contempt by those who do not value the authority of the Scriptures. And those who would speak the truth are labeled with such awful words that they might be impugned enough so that others would not listen to them. These same people join up and fellowship the works of darkness by joining with false teachers and teachers of other religions.
In the end, God will sort it all out. May we be willing to warn these people of the judgment to come.
