    The battle between good and evil

    I saw a post today that said Satan was winning.

    In times like these it seems we see the best in people come out but we also see some evil.

    Evil will ultimately loose.
    But, in the mean time....good people are doing nothing.
    Political correctness is a national suicide pact.

    I am a sovereign individual, accountable
    only to God and my own conscience.

    If we could defeat evil, Jesus would not need to return. We are unable or unwilling to defeat it. God did not design us to be perfectly "good". We can show goodness but we would victims in the world we live in...so we show goodness to those we love. The phonies show "goodness" to those they want to impress.

    The way things appear in the natural are one thing - What is going on behind the scenes in a world that God made and God controls is another. I continue to believe in the supremacy of the Will of God - and will also continue to due the best i can to do what I think he wants me to do or not do.
    Being human is not for sissies.

    You got it. All any of us can do is do the best we can, we are not accountable for anyone else. And I refuse to "feel bad" because evil is still moving the world toward the Rapture.

    The future is all in God's capable hands - as it's so clearly explained to us in his holy Word - and I can't stop it. Nor do I want to, his way is best!

    Evil may be winning now, but it shall not triumph in the end.

    I think both sides have strategy's they think will work.

    I'm putting my money and soul on the Lord winning.

    Evil may be wining, may have the numbers. But I do not believe they can stand before the Lord come again in glory. I think they will break.

    Evil/Satan is winning at this time because it's all in God's plan. When Jesus died on Golgotha, Satan's fate was sealed. God is in control, He wins!

    Evil was defeated when Christ died on the cross 'He descended into Hell', the Apostles' Creed confesses that Jesus did really die and through his death for us conquered death and the devil 'who has the power of death' (Hebrews 2:14).

    @dverna. Adam was perfect, @dcp. He conquered death through His resurrection. It is the beginning of sorrows that is why there is more evil in the world. Trials are to break us into seeing that God is sovereign and that we need a Savior. What happened to that thread about hell or being annihilated?

    Evil is making a decisive impact on this battlefield(earth), but the war is already won. When Christ came off the cross the spiritual butt kicking started, and didn't take long. We are just living out the final death kicks of this broken evil sin nature infested reality. The Evil one is just trying to take as many with him as possible. We as humans just need to Do justly, love mercy, Walk humbly with our God.

    Devils advocate thought. If evil wins a single soul has not evil won?

    In that case evil won that battle, but not the war.

    Is evil winning over good?

    Evil:
    Evil, in a general sense, is the opposite or absence of good. It can be an extremely broad concept, although in everyday usage is often used more narrowly to talk about profound wickedness.
    Wikipedia

    How does one measure this?

    I guess it would be one's own personal observation of what one sees going on in "their world".
    Certainly the "news" is one input for information to gauge this but the "news" is so skewed that it projects a sense that no one is being accountable for their bad actions.
    In that sense, evil would appear to be winning.

    If one does not follow the "news" and his life revolves around going to church, church gatherings, etc. Then their input would probably be good by what they see, hear and discuss with like minded folks.

    I do watch the "news" (local and national) and from my point of view, America (and the world) has generally fallen from having God as a focus in their lives. Things like greed, "me first you later", and disregard for others seem to be their focus.

    Hmmm,...evil,....from a Theological view it would be Satan's efforts to entice us to do things that would be contrary to our progression towards God.
    Like the thief that sees that another has $50.00 in possession and thinks "Hmmm, if I kill that guy, I can have that $50.00", with no regard for human life etc.

    A lot of "evil" things going on in this world, but also a lot of good folks doing good things also.
    I voted that I do not know the answer.
