Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.” (Hebrews 3:12)


Unbelief is the opposite of faith. It’s presented here as something tangible, and not just the absence of faith. And if there is an “evil heart of unbelief” it means that evil is defined as unbelief, meaning that unbelief is defined in moral terms, it’s not something morally neutral, it’s immoral to not believe or trust God, it’s a moral issue, which people will be judged for.

So, we are warned to take heed lest there be any unbelief in our hearts, and we begin to justify departing from God, and lose sight of the fact that unbelief is evil, the product of an evil heart.
