To understand that good and evil are not always what we believe they are is a deciding factor. I have seen people abuse our compassion for gain quite frequently. I have seen my help turn into an expectation by others so they could benefit by my loss. I have seen people lie for a reason that was good, although it was still a lie it accomplished good. a lie is a tool used by both good and evil but truth should preferably be used by those who are good. I have seen thieves help out the needy in the past. I cannot judge their actions, we have a set of laws to cover that, but the laws are sometimes corrupt. This corruption in the law was known long ago. Read Ecclesiastes 3 16-24 to see how long it has been around.
I read that the Japanese gansters were helping the people in Japan while the governments aid was tied up in paperwork. Now that is not a sign of evil even though the gangsters were touted as evil. What is good and what is bad...sometimes the difference is blurry.
Even love gets abused by those who are bad. I still try to help those in need but no longer donate to an organization until I research their history. A fool and their money will soon part. Trusting in others who would have you believe you are doing good when in fact the whole charity is a deception is not helping anyone...except the ones benefiting from the donation...the cons. I do know that there are people doing good out there and I understand people who organize these things need to make a living...but there has to be some way of tracking the good from the bad. Our government is lax on this, they don't care if we are conned out of our money, birds of a feather flock together.
Deciphering good from evil is not easy. It is a perception and there is always some good in bad and also some bad in good.edit on 30-3-2014 by rickymouse because: (no reason given)
