Moral evil is wrong done to others, and it can exist even when unaccompanied by external action. Murder is an evil action, but it has its start with the moral evil of hatred in the heart (Matthew 5:21–22). Committing adultery is evil, but so is the moral evil of lust in the heart (Matthew 5:27–28). Jesus said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, those evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person” (Mark 7:20–23). Source
Amazon has found itself in a world of controversy lately after a report detailing the results of a nine-month investigation confirmed that the e-commerce giant is profiting off the backs of Chinese factory workers that are forced to work in poor conditions. The report, which was released by the New York-based China Labor Watch, offers a behind-the-scenes look at how Amazon is able to sell devices like Echo speakers and Kindle e-readers for as little as $40.
Specifically, the investigation found that workers were required to work more than 100 hours of overtime each month, which is in violation of existing Chinese labor laws that limit overtime to just 36 hours a month. Additionally, employees do not receive adequate safety training, staff dormitories aren’t equipped with fire extinguishers and lack adequate fire-safety precautions, and workers are required to show up for work 10 minutes before their shifts are scheduled to begin and they do not get compensated for this time.
“All workers are subject to long hours and low wages,” the report explained. “As wages are low, workers must rely on overtime hours to earn enough to maintain a decent standard of living.” In response, Amazon stated that they would work with Foxconn Hengyang (the company that manufactures products for Amazon) in order to correct the problem. (Related: Amazon was charged with 4,000 counts of selling illegal pesticides.)
“We immediately requested a corrective action plan from Foxconn Hengyang detailing their plan to remediate the issues identified, and we are conducting regular assessments to monitor for implementation and compliance with our Supplier Code of Conduct,” Amazon said. “We are committed to ensuring that these issues are resolved.”
While we have no reason to believe that Amazon will not follow through with this pledge, it’s also hard to believe that any action would have been taken to correct the problem in the first place if this investigation was never conducted.

Amazon’s questionable treatment of employees
This isn’t the first time that Amazon has made headlines for poor working conditions and the questionable ways in which they treat their employees. In April of this year, the e-commerce giant came under fire for allegedly intimidating workers to the point where they felt as though they had to urinate in bottles just to avoid getting fired for taking bathroom breaks.
An author by the name of James Bloodworth decided to go undercover at an Amazon fulfillment center in the United Kingdom in order to gain information about how the company operates for a book that he planned on writing. Bloodworth said in an interview with The Sun that staff had to move around the entire warehouse to find the necessary items that were to be shipped out, and as such, the bathrooms were usually too far away to take a quick trip. Instead, Bloodworth explained, many of the employees carried around a “toilet bottle,” which they used to relieve themselves in to avoid getting penalized for taking long breaks. (Related: For more stories like these visit Whistleblower.news).
“For those of us who worked on the top floor, the closest toilets were down four flights of stairs,” he explained to The Sun. “People just peed in bottles because they lived in fear of being disciplined over ‘idle time’ and losing their jobs just because they needed the loo.”
The undercover investigation sparked a wave of controversy, which ultimately compelled Shona Ghosh of Business Insider UK to take an even more in-depth look into Amazon’s questionable practices.
Among several other things, Ghosh’s report indicated that some workers have been penalized by Amazon for being sick, which is obviously something that is beyond their control. One pregnant employee received “warning points” for getting sick while on the job, and another employee was reprimanded for also getting sick even though they had a note from their doctor.

One problem with emphasizing the appearance of evil is that it can make us slaves to the perceptions of others. There will always be someone who thinks that something you are doing is wrong, or that it looks wrong to him. So, rather than spending our time getting to know God and serving Him, we worry about the possibility that someone, somewhere, might misconstrue our actions. In the same letter that he wrote about avoiding evil, Paul wrote, “Just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts” (1 Thessalonians 2:4). Our goal is to live righteously before God, not to comply with others’ arbitrary standards of conduct.
At the same time, we are instructed not to allow our Christian freedom to become a stumbling block to others (1 Corinthians 8:9). We are also instructed to be salt and light in the world (Matthew 5:13-16). Christians have been set apart (2 Corinthians 6:17).

Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply Put, I Do Not Believe the Government Is the Solution for Everything. I Do Not Place Any Faith, Trust, or Hope in Any Politicians to Fix What Is Wrong with the World. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)

Evil Exists So Spiritual Warfare Becomes Necessary!
- Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
- We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9. persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10. always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
Satan has power over (LGBTQE-TRANS PEOPLE). The “sons of disobedience” referred to in Ephesians 2:2 are those who have not trusted Christ as Lord and Savior (cf. Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 13:12). The demons are also under the rule of Satan (Matthew 12:24), and one of his titles is “prince of demons” (Matthew 9:34). Satan has a kingdom (Matthew 12:26) and a throne (Revelation 2:13). Satan is called a prince because he is a ruler and possesses the power to manifest evil in the world through influencing people and commanding demons.
HNewsWire- “All political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable.” Just look at some of our modern-day examples: torture is “enhanced interrogation techniques”; murder is “collateral damage”; the aggression initiation of war is a “pre-emptive strike”; the theft of taxpayers’ money is a “bailout”, and the theft of depositors’ money in a bank is a “haircut” or “bail-in”.In a blatant example of Newspeak, the New World Order controllers (through the psychiatric DSM V) have tried to rename pedophiles as “minor-attracted persons” and redefine pedophilia as “sexual orientation”. This makes no sense since sexual orientation has to do with gender, not age, with whether you are attracted to males or females, not how old they are. There are even organizations (like B4UAct.org) which are claiming that pedophiles are being unfairly stigmatized for their feelings!
