The question on,” what does the bible say about evil family members,” is the question that is commonly asked by Christians dealing with evil family members.
Our Lord Jesus Christ had a lot to say concerning evil family members who are toxic and try to make our lives difficult or a living hell here on earth.
He further goes on to say in Matthews 10:36 that your worst enemy will be from your own family or household and this should be no surprise to you if you are being confronted with evil family members in your family.
While no family is perfect, some family members just take things too far and try to do bad things to you for no reason. I am sure that you have encountered evil family members in your life who have tried to ruin your life.
To understand what the bible says concerning evil family members, we will need to look at bible verses in both the Old Testament and the New Testament to understand the position of God’s word on this matter.
With that said, let’s look at our question today on, “what does the bible say about evil family members,” and how to deal with them biblically.
What’s An Evil Family?
An evil family is simply a family that doesn’t believe in God or regard Him but takes pleasure in practicing wickedness such as anger, witchcraft, hate, murder, etc. In addition, it’s a family that doesn’t care about heaven or heavenly things and makes jest of them.
A toxic family member who comes from an evil family always seeks to harm other family members to drag them down with their toxic drama.
An evil family member can be a mother, father, sister, relatives, etc. who doesn’t know God or who seeks to make your life difficult especially if you are a Christian who stands up to their wickedness.
Evil family members also seek to drag others into their wicked practices and if you resist, they will horribly persecute you if you don’t support them, in their wickedness or iniquity.
However, if you are a Christian in an evil family, you need to look at what God’s word says concerning evil family members and how you can deal with them.
Jesus Christ says in Matthews 10:37-39 that you can’t be His disciple if you love your evil family members more than Him by supporting them in their evil deeds.
The bible is clear that you must not love your, family, more than God. Otherwise, you will be practicing idolatry by doing so.
Your love for God must come first which implies that you must be willing to disappoint your evil family members by not supporting them in the evil works they do even if they threaten to disown you.
God’s Word Concerning Evil Family Members.
The Bible says that there are two types of family members: the good, and the evil. The good family members are those that love God and believe in Jesus Christ. They will always be there for you when you need them.
On the other hand, the evil family members are those who do not believe in God or Jesus Christ. They do not care about anyone but themselves.
They will never be there for you when you need them, and they will treat others badly because they are selfish people who only care about themselves.
If a person is an evil member of your family, then you should talk to God about how to deal with them so that they don’t cause harm to others around them.
Jesus Christ taught as we saw earlier in the above bible verse of Matthews 10:36 that our worst enemy will always be those closest to us or of our household in this case evil family members who may try to harm us through witchcraft or any other evil means.
If you have evil family members, all you can do is pray for them so that God changes their evil hearts before it’s too late as the Lord has promised that He will cut off evil family members who don’t repent of their wickedness.
God Promises To Punish Evil Families.
God’s word says that evil family members will always face justice for the evil they have done to others as it has always been since the world began.
The Lord goes on further to say that evil families or family members who disregard His word and continue in their evil ways will be cut off and sent to hell if they don’t repent.
For instance, in the Old Testament, we see several examples of God showing justice and vengeance to evil family members who rebelled against Him by cutting them off from the face of this earth.
One such example of God cutting off evil family members is in the case of Absalom in 2 Samuel 18:1-33 who was killed by Joab as he wanted to usurp Kind David’s throne, his father.
Absalom was a son of David who was evil and due to his wickedness which knew no bounds, he even dared to dethrone his father, David but soon justice caught up with him which resulted in him getting killed.
The above example is among many others in the old testament of how God dealt with evil family members who rebelled against Him especially those who practiced witchcraft and divination.
In the new testament in Acts 5:1-11, we see the case of Ananias and Sapphira who dies an instant death for telling lies and lying to the Holy Spirit.
The above examples are a clear warning to evil family members and families as to what awaits them if they disobey God and refuse to turn from their evil ways.
How To Handle Evil Family Members Biblically?
To answer the question of whether or not evil family members can be dealt with biblically, the answer is yes. The Bible says that we are to love our enemies (Matthew 5:44), so it makes sense that we should forgive them and pray for them.
There are several ways to deal with evil family members biblically. First of all, you must forgive them for whatever they have done to you or your family in the past. You can do this by praying for them and asking God to help you forgive them.
Asking God to take away their sins is essential because it shows that they cannot save themselves without Him (John 5:24). When people are saved, they are also given grace so they can choose to be saved.
Implying that if you continue praying for them as a loving Christian, eventually God will remove any spiritual strongholds from their lives so that they can receive salvation and eternal life through faith alone in Jesus Christ as their Savior.
The second way to deal with evil family members is by making sure that you stand up for yourself against any attacks from them. This means that if they constantly attack you or your loved ones, then you need to stand up for yourself and tell them off.
You should also try not to let those who are evil or any evil person in your family affect how you see yourself, your happiness, or how much respect you give yourself.
Instead of letting their behavior make you feel worthless, try instead believing in yourself and showing everyone else around you that God loves all people regardless of how they treat others every day.
I hope the above article on,” what does the bible say about evil family members,” has helped you realize that God always punishes evil family members who refuse to repent of their evil.
If you are dealing with evil family members in your family, the best is to pray for them and not to try to change them as only God can change a person’s heart.
