The United States and Pakistan is going though their troubles concerning trust and maybe, in time, the truth will come out. Either the Pakistanis knew Osama Bin Laden was there, or they did not. If they did know, then they were guilty of aiding and abetting, and that is not good when the person you are protecting is a wanted man. Anyway, the lesson for us on a more personal basis is not to protect the guilty. I don’t care if it is family, friend, or foe. If the person is guilty of wrong doing, they aren’t worth you standing up for them (1 Timothy 5:22).
Yet every day, people will commit evil deeds, and there will be someone who will stand by them and even cover up for them. Don’t do this thing. Speak out against wrong, and correct those dearest to you when they are wrong. You sure aren’t doing the wrong doer a favor by helping them. In the end, they will give account to Jesus for their evil deeds, and you will give account for helping them (2 Corinthians 5:10; Ecclesiastes 12:14; Hebrews 4:13). So don’t be guilty of aiding evil doers.
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
