Acting out on evil thoughts is the root cause of many problems.

Get help and practice self-control.


There are so many problems in this world, and I believe it is because we have allowed evil thoughts to control us. You may ask what you consider evil thoughts.  According to Matthew 15:19 evil thoughts are thoughts of murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, and slander.

You may also be wondering if something is wrong with you because you have evil thoughts. Something is wrong when you act out these evil thoughts. Romans 7:21-25 states “So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; waging war against the law of mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!”

What causes evil thoughts?

The truth is where there is good, evil is present. After all, Satan’s role is to get you in his dark world and so he will allow these evil thoughts to enter your mind. You may be facing a lot of issues causing stress and anxiety and then an evil thought enters your mind. You may also have mental issues resulting in some evil thoughts. Being greedy causes you to steal and lie. The evil spirit of jealousy and revenge creates thoughts of murder and slander. Some people also have evil thoughts due to the generation curses in their lives.

The blame games.

There is a blame game taking place for the problems that exist. For instance, let us look at the murders that are taking place. The Politicians blame one another for the number of murders taking place and they claim they have the solution especially when they are in Opposition. The Police get blame. The family, especially single parents, get blamed. Some people claim it is the lack of jobs and the absence of a trade school that cause criminal activities. The church gets blamed. Satan gets blamed.

Everybody gets blamed except the individuals who committed the acts. While it is true that Satan allows evil thoughts to enter your mind, you as an individual decided using your free will to carry out your evil thoughts. So, in the case of murderers, it is not the politician or the police that cause the criminals to have an evil mind.

The Solution

Our solution to our problems is to turn to God. When we turn to God and follow his word, we will fear God. If we fear God, then we will not commit those acts of evil thoughts. Despite the intense thoughts, practice self-control. If you are unable to practice self-control, recognize you have an issue and get counselling or confide in a trusted friend or family who can be there for you.


I know we are concerned about what is taking place. However, this is not new, but the problems appear to be happening very fast. It is because these are the last days, and we are under attack by Satan. It appears that he has intensified his efforts with his evil thoughts. God is more powerful and so we must turn to God if we want a better today and a better tomorrow.
