πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ How Evil Is The Age In Which We Are Living?

β€œIs our grace age, which Paul calls β€˜this present evil world [age]’ (Gal. 1:4), worse than the time of Nimrod or what is seen in Romans 1:18-32?”

This age is evil. Every dispensation or age in man’s history has been evil. Every age has demonstrated that the heart of mankind β€œis deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked” (Jer. 17:9), that people are sinners in need of the Lord. I don’t think our age is worse than the time of Nimrod or what is seen in Romans 1:18-32, but rather very similar. Romans 1:18-32 sounds like a commentary on our times! Mankind doesn’t change. Mankind has been evil, is evil, and will be evil.

News of mankind’s wickedness shouldn’t completely shock the believer. Rather, it should immediately remind us of people’s need for Christ and His salvation, and our need to be β€œRedeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Eph.Β 5:16). Faith in Christ brings new life and can bring transformation to people’s lives, so that they might live β€œin all goodness and righteousness and truth” (Eph. 5:9).

Paul calls it β€œthis present evil world” to impress upon us the glory of our deliverance from it by Christ and His Cross. Galatians 1:4 shows us β€œWho gave Himself for our sins, that He mightΒ deliver usΒ from this present evil world.” Knowledge of this hope is to cause us to react with thanksgiving and praise to our Savior, β€œTo Whom be glory for ever and ever” (Gal. 1:5), and β€œthat they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him which died for them, and rose again” (2 Cor.Β 5:15). source
