Why Good People Do Bad Things

Proverbs 7:1-27  (ID: 1773)

Most people view themselves as basically good, and yet many still lie, cheat, steal, act selfishly, and commit other acts of evil. Why is this so? From Proverbs 7, Alistair Begg draws on the godly wisdom of Solomon to explain this seeming paradox. God’s wisdom is clear: if we neglect Scripture, fail to guard ourselves, and deny the reality and danger of sin, we too may become “doers of evil.”


Warning Against the Adulteress

1My son, keep my words

and treasure up my commandments with you;
