October 8, 2021 - Good evil?

The temptation to be popular may prioritize public opinion above the word of God. Even if 'everyone is doing it,' wrong is never right. Evil, error, and darkness will never be truth, even if popular. A scriptural warning so declares: 'Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness.'

Then Elder Russell M. Nelson, "Let Your Faith Show", General Conference, April 2014

This is another one of my favorite addresses given by a servant of the Lord. I recommend listening to or watching it.

I was watching a show on TV today and an advertisement came on promoting that new CBS show called "Evil". At the end of this advertisement, a quote came on screen that said "Evil is good".

Obviously, they were referring to the TV show Evil, but that immediately brought to my mind that, in the world, especially in today's world, there are those that call evil good and good evil. We can see that happening right in front of us. We can see that happening on TV, on social media, on the internet, and everywhere else.

It has never been more important, more critical that we stand up for what is right, for what is good. And I mean "good" as defined by God. There is only 1 truth and that is what God is, and what the gospel of Jesus Christ is. Truth is truth. It cannot be hidden so as to not offend someone. It just can't.
