Scripture:

Prov. 18:5
It is not good to show partiality to the wicked …

Comment:

When we read Prov. 18: 5 we can easily think it means we should not take sides for a man who done something evil, and Yes, the scripture can be interpreted that way. But the question is, who is the wicked. When a person has done something wrong, evil spirits have been involved. Their purpose is to steal, kill and destroy (John 10: 10).

The evil spirits work to deceive people by getting them to harm themselves and others. When the spirits have succeeded in their intent, they often change tactics and encourage other people to condemn those who acted wrongly. This will give the evil spirits the most out of their fraud.

Prov. 18: 5 says that it is not right to take sides for the wicked. Once we see that it is the evil spirits who are to blame, we can understand the scripture in a different way. As long as we just blame the person who acted wrongly, the evil spirits will go free. If, on the other hand, we recognize that a person’s behavior has been demonic inspired, but we do not take authority over the spirits, the evil spirits will also go free. In both cases, we let the wicked, the evil spirits, go free, while we become tools for them to condemn those who have been deceived to do wrong things. It must not be like that.

We should, of course, not help people blame their erroneous acts on evil spirits, but we need to deal with the evil spirits who lead them to act in a wrong way.
