Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”
1 Corinthians 15:33
It seems there is not a day that goes by where we do not see evidence of crimes of hate, savagery, deception, disgrace, suppression, oppression, and pure unfiltered evil suddenly disrupting and destroying the lives of innocent people. The face of terrorism we may have been accustomed to seeing through media accounts is no longer substantiated by such representation anymore.
Homegrown terrorism has sprouted from the seeds of hateful, violent, and destructive propaganda spewing from the mouths and conduct of so many unlikely people. It is sending scorching flames like shooting pitch forks targeting innocent men, women, and children. Sacred places like worship institutions, schools, tourist attractions, and workplaces are no longer safe, peaceful, and enjoyable havens to be. We are witnessing a sad isolation of public socializing due to fear tactics from a new wave of armed militia. Some just may be sitting next to you on the pew in your church.
In our world, we are overly saturated with subliminal conversations and influences that turn relatively good people into evil cohorts. This is why it is important to be careful of the company you keep, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. It’s easier to be swayed into corruption more than you may think or believe.
