“Wo unto them that call evil goodand good evil, that put darkness for light, and light for darkness, that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”  — 2 Nephi 15:20

Today we are beset with messages that are confusing and wrong.  In our integrated society ideas cross political, moral, social, and entertainment boundaries.  So many things have become politicized because our government has taken to control and regulate everything.  It seems that you are not allowed to express your point of view on a moral issue without it being politicized.

Here are some things that would seem to fit the definition of calling “evil good, and good evil”.  Same Gender attraction issues are huge right now.  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has a long public statement on the issue.  Our society is facing pressure to accept gay partnerships and sex acts as on par with marriage and fidelity.

Calling these contrary views “enlightened” is also calling light darkness and darkness light.  Same thing as calling these relationships as fulfilling and as wonderful as traditional relationships.  They are not the same and they never will be.

All kinds of things are promoted as good ideas when they are not appropriate for Latter Day Saints, like drinking, carousing, and other activities that have been verboten for those who choose to follow our faith.

The reality is that following God’s commands and exercising appropriate self discipline will go a long way toward creating a happy and fulfilled life.  Lasting joy comes from living righteous laws.
