Can The Good Go Bad & The Bad Turn To Good?

The Bible tells of many stories of courage, lives changing, healing, guiding. The list can go on. There are many instances where men and women have found their blessings in following the word of Jesus. There are stories such as this in the old testament. It appears there was a pretty bad king named Nebuchadnezzar who surrounded himself with psychics, fakers and shakers. He had amongst his entourage a prophet named Hananiah. He was a man of God, and known to be a pretty powerful guy. He pretty much told the king what was going to take place in God's playbook. His ego got the best of him. He ended up disobeying God. He let the punished people of these idol worshiping nations off the hook. Told them they did not have suffer  anymore by the hands of God. Hananiah told the king, "hey no worries guys, I got this you owe God nothing. Yep you can go on about your business" "And oh by the way Jeremiah(another of God's prophets)I know the king really hates you, but  I have the power to persuade him to let you go on your merry way too". All the above turned out to be a real bad decision. God told Jeremiah to tell Hananiah that he was wrong  to do what he did, (switch sides, disobey God) and that he was going to be dead in two years tops. And so it came to pass. Reference Jeremiah 28:1-17. The point is many a good can go bad. And many bad can become good by accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
