(Proverbs 17:15 KJV) He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.
The obvious targets of this verse are our modern courts, politicians and media people. Currently there is a group that is trying to get the psychologists to declare pedophilia a normal part of life. They did it with homosexuality a few years ago. Some warned about the slippery slope and were laughed at. The future is now. The media will jump on board. The courts will find a new constitutional right. The abomination continues.
It may also be a comment on our actions. We are not going to molest children or torture animals, but we don’t need to do that to justify wickedness. What we do is excuse our gossip as concern and our lies as tact. We can condemn the righteous by not speaking up in support when a fellow worker is disciplined for wearing a cross or wishing someone “Merry Christmas.”
So? Let the scripture speak to our hearts and improve our behavior rather than focus on the parts of the world we cannot influence.
