The best way that I know how to avoid evil is to realize that I have been bought with a price, which is Jesus’ death on the cross for all my sins! Follow Jesus rather than the world or the devil. Here are some encouraging scriptures about evil.

Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the foundation upon which sincere and meaningful repentance must be built. If we truly seek to put away sin, we must first look to Him, who is the author of our salvation. ~ Ezra Taft Benson

Get In God’s Word To Avoid Evil!
Avoid Evil Because It Is Everywhere!
As Christians, we cannot avoid every kind of evil because we live in a sinful world. We can, however, make sure that we don’t give evil a foothold by avoiding tempting situations and concentrating on obeying God’s Word. ~ Mike Hayden
1 Thessalonians 5:22 Avoid every kind of evil.
Avoid Evil – Yet We Will Never Be Perfect Here On Earth!
Yes, There Is Indeed Pleasure In Sin!
Sometimes to avoid evil, it is best to avoid people, places, and things that will most likely lead you to sin. You can not prevent sin completely, but you can be wise about it.
But sin keeps us apart from God. Bearing in mind that one sin is not greater than another sin.
Sin is sin no matter if it is in the form of a lie, murder, homosexuality, stealing, or whatever, God hates sin and to avoid evil, you should be one of our most important objectives in life!
When we do sin, you need to ask God and others that you have sinned against (or offended) for forgiveness and then turn away from your sin and ask God to help you avoid sin the best you can.
Yes, sin is definitely in this fallen world we live in, and there is also pleasure in sin, the test comes when we have to choose if we love the sin more, or if we love the Lord more?
I am not saying that we will sin no more once we follow Jesus Christ and his teachings, but your sin will look so much more ugly than it was before, and God will give you the strength to fight it, grace to get through it, forgiveness to be cleansed from it!
Realize that your faith is made apparent by others. By the way, you live your life and react to stressful situations? Bottom line, do you want to start or build a relationship with God, then you need to begin to trust in God more?
The way you can test your faith is when you can find joy in difficult times, not only when times are going well! You can check your faith, by the way, you react to situations by the way you talk, the way you behave, the way you think about others and the way you treat them.
Hopefully, you have a strong faith in God, but if you are not sure what you do believe yet, you can test your faith where it is now, and you can find out more below and throughout our website. ~ Bill Greguska
Avoid Evil And Sin By Recognizing Sin Ahead Of Time!
Three Types Of Sin To Avoid
The sin of not doing something that we ought to do is called the sin of omission.
There is also the sin of commission, which is doing something that God instructs us not to do.
There is a third type is called personal sin, that which is committed every day to every human being by disobeying God’s word.
I have heard it said that murder, or rape, or robbing a bank is the prominent sin. Let’s say, and the so-called little sins are those sins such as telling a white lie. Taking a small item from someone, or something like that are minor sins.
There are many different types of sins, but again all sin is against God and has to be accounted for and punished. That is why God gave us his only son to die on the cross a painful death to cover up the many different types of sins that we commit.
I thank God for what he has done, and to show my thanks to God, I do my best not to sins, and when I do, I ask forgiveness right away.
How to Avoid Evil And Sin?
God’s arrows of affliction are sharp and painful so that He can get our attention. He won’t let His beloved children get away with sin because He knows it robs us of blessings, opportunities, and even character refinement. ~ Charles Stanley
Matthew 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
