“Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good.”
Romans 12:21 NLT
Each day, the pressure to succumb to evil is very strong, and naturally there are those who say, “If every person doing evil prosper” “Why I can not do that”?
It is undeniable that the evil works all the time in order that society live under the evil; being the sin, the source of all evil desires and evil thoughts, the driver of misconducts.
But Paul clearly says, that “letting” evil overcomes us, finally will be a personal decision; in other words, I allow or not, that overcomes evil reign in my life.
To overcome evil we should do good; for this reason, you can not beat evil being passive, quieting, ignoring and supporting with our silence the evil that is done.
Doing good can never be a covert action, the good deeds cannot shut up or concealed, if it were done, How can we overcome evil?
