Evil doesn’t know it’s evil. It just believes that it’s more rational than others. It can confidently stand before God and be the accuser of men.
It lives in a world of absolutes where what it says is wrong is wrong; good is what’s needed and necessary. It speaks to men, “I wouldn’t do that, but I know you would if you thought you could get away with it.” Looking into the mirror, it sees what it believes others must admire.
It believes it makes the difficult decisions that those lesser would need help to make. It can then look into its prey’s eyes and say, “It isn’t personal, it’s just business, it’s just politics, or it’s just necessary. The world was meant to be ruled by someone like me.”
Lord, look into my heart and deliver me from any evil hiding in me.
