Seeing life's events in the light of God's Word.

The New Black

on March 6, 2022

Isaiah 5:20- “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.”

I read on the internet this week that “Orange is the New Black.”  

When one uses the expression that something is the new black, they mean that it is suddenly fashionable or popular. What was once considered good is now replaced by something else.

I thought about the way our social culture has been changing rapidly during the past few years. Words which were once not allowed to be spoken on television and radio, are now commonly heard—and no one even blinks an eye.

The way people dress in public nowadays would never have been allowed in malls, public parks, or restaurants a decade ago. What was once discreet and tasteful is now thought to be old-fashioned. 

Actions that were labeled as wrong are now right; and those that were once considered right, have become wrong in the eyes of the world.

God told us in his Word that this is exactly what would happen in the End Times. He also has told us which behaviors He considers right and wrong/ sinful and not. God doesn’t change His mind. In fact, Hebrews 13:8 states that he remains the same yesterday, today, and forever.

With God, what is right is right; what is wrong is wrong. We never have to second-guess Him. 

Isn’t it a comfort to know He doesn’t change His mind or His standards? That unlike the world that changes constantly around us, we can always depend on Him?
