Why, Thank You! When Being Called ‘Evil’ Is a Kindness


By Matt Barber

Princeton University was founded in 1746 by devoutly Christian men with a devoutly Christian mission. It has “evolved” into a fortress of secular-”progressivism,” presently employing people like Bio-”Ethics” professor Peter Singer.

Whereas Princeton’s crest and motto yet declare: “Dei sub numine viget,” Latin for “Under God she flourishes,” the university, even still, permits Singer to teach young minds full of mush that it’s perfectly ethical for parents to kill their babies within a one month period after birth.

Please understand, I don’t mean to pick on Princeton. I only single-out this once-godly institution for purposes of illustration. Even today there are, no doubt, many good, God-fearing men and women among Princeton’s student body, faculty, staff and alumni.

To be sure, I might just as easily have spotlighted Harvard, Yale, Oxford or any among dozens of formerly Christian universities that, over time – and beneath the erosive, slow-drip temptation to “conform to the pattern of this world” – have tragically abandoned their founding vision to train-up men and women who would “go into all the world” and champion the cause of Christ.

While such institutions of higher learning once derived their moral compass from a decidedly biblical worldview, today they aggressively foster principles that are decidedly counter-biblical (i.e., secularism, sexual relativism, a “pro-choice” culture of death, et al.).

They’ve lost true north. Their once-seaworthy biblical scholarship and worldview have become capsized. Their once-biblical code of belief has become counter-biblical dogma.

There is, mind you, another, more pointed term for “counter-biblical” and it is this: “evil.”

Scripture has much to say about the wide, “progressive” path away from truth and toward evil: “If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. Of them the proverbs are true: ‘A dog returns to its vomit,’ and, ‘A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud’” (2 Peter 2:20-22).

Scripture also admonishes, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20). So-called “progressives” frequently call me evil. They also call me, among other things, irreverent.

I appreciate that.
