There Is No Spiritual Switzerland

The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous
and his ears toward their cry.
The face of the LORD is against those who do evil,
to cut off the memory of them from the earth.
[Psalm 34:15-16]

None of us is neutral.   Just as Jesus said: “Whoever is not with me is against me” (Matthew 12:30).

And this psalm presents the only two options: you are either righteous and do good, or you are evil and do evil.   You are either one or the other.

So don’t pretend to be on God’s good side just because you aren’t out killing people or doing drugs.   If you are not actively pursuing him and his will, you are his enemy.   There is no spiritual Switzerland.
