Why Do Some Christians Seem to Be Evil at Times?
The answer to this question, I believe is that it is because the devil's influence on people. And there are many people who call themselves Christians or think they are, but are not truly saved and are doing wrong things.
I personally know more than one person who has acted in an evil way which makes me wonder if they are saved. "By their fruits you will know them". That bible verse is the most telling. If you see good things coming from people, and that they are sincere, then I will most likely say that they are saved, but in the end, I think we've all heard when we get to heaven, we may be surprised not to see some there and surprised to see some there. So really God knows not us. But we must surround ourselves with holy, positive people who bring clarity and not confusion.
Any person that brings confusion or anything which brings confusion, means it's not of God. Remember that!
After listening to the video below, I now understand better, WHY these people act evil at times. There is definitely something wrong there. Christians who promote evil are not the kind of people you want to be around!
Any Christian that gets involved in any kind of witchcraft, is going to be prey to the devil's influence. We need to be aware of what we need to do to have God's Divine protection. I have felt God's protection, which I am very grateful for. I know I did not have that protection as strongly as I do now, before I was saved. And I know now, that since, I have learned more and more over the past four years, that I have more of His protection. I am learning more and that's very key to be successful in your path and search to be more holy, in order to enjoy God now, and not wait till heaven to enjoy God. We can enjoy God NOW. In fact, since I got saved, my mental health is better. I was on the wrong medications. It has taken a while, but now I am doing much better. I've had my meds changed twice since I got saved, and each time I felt better. In fact, I've found that I may have been misdiagnosed as well. I believe this never would have happened if I was not saved because It's known that when you accept Christ, He will strengthen you. And that's exactly what has happened to me!
People ask me sometimes why I don't have fear much. Well the first bible verse I learned was in IITim1:7 For the Lord hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
I feel called to share my experience and happy to, although it does worry me at times, that I will lose friends of people will not like me, but that's going to happen God said when you do what you're supposed to do, and when you follow Him, because they hated Him and will hate you He said in the bible.
There are so many crazy television shows on these days. I don't have cable and sometimes there's not one good show on. I mean they're all about murder, or lust, or something not good. So I have to turn off my tv or watch youtube or a dvd of my own. That's how bad it is. And even some children's shows, I've noticed, are very unhealthy to watch, one of them has symbols of witchcraft in the background sky for example. I've seen a symbol that looks like a figure 8 sideways which I recognize that I was told somewhere it's a witchcraft symbol. Imagine! Kids shows having that in them! If I can't stand watching it, they shouldn't be. Their brains are young and more impressionable. Sigh.
