There are various kinds of people we meet in our daily lives. Some come to help or support us to accomplish a task. Others come to be a part of purpose and another category comes to take from us.

The category that takes through negative, envious and mischievous ways are characterized as evil people.

Evil people operate with evil minds and hearts. They create confusion through lies, and baseless stories (Psalms 5:8, 10:7, 58:3).

By plotting and twisting facts, denying real evidence and mostly, not taking responsibility for their actions (Proverbs 16: 20).

They are able to fool many by using flattery words (Jeremiah 12: 6.)

They always want to be in authority and control. (Romans 2:8).

They like to take advantage of innocent people – They prefer to be forgiven for their wrong actions. Yet do not care the harm they have caused others and have no plans of rebuilding their trust. They are neither remorseful nor forgiving. (Proverbs 21:10).

They find joy doing evil and expect you to see their actions having no consequences. Yet their actions do not match what they preach. (James 1:22, 26). As Christian leaders, let us refuse to be understanding to the fact that we turn our eyes from the real matter. And expect forgiveness from the one who has been heart. (Proverbs 25:19).

Christian spiritual leaders must be trained to discern between good and evil. So they do not become preys of the activities of evil people. (Hebrews 5:14).

It is very wrong to allow evil hearts to believe you are on their side. From the point where; “they’re not that bad” or “that they are really sorry” or “that they are in the process of changing” when, in fact, they are not. (Proverbs 9:7, 8).
