ISIS and Planned Parenthood demonstrate the darkness of the human heart. These two examples of evil have become familiar headlines. The problem with headlines is that they become political issues to be solved by elections. The truth is that laws, social norms, military force, education, elections, and 24/7 news coverage will not rid the earth of deeply entrenched evil. This kind of evil cannot be talked out of existence. There is only one way to defeat evil. Jesus said that the gates, or strongholds of Hell, cannot stand against his church. That's right, the church that is so easily dismissed is the only force capable of defeating evil. Only a praying church, committed to being salt and light can throw off the forces evil.
As a culture and a nation we have come to tolerate evil gradually. We bargain with evil rather than destroy it.
