TextThere is no such thing as evil, and that is exactly why without evil there can't be any good, because the only way to define either good or evil
is to put it on a sliding scale and compare and contrast each unique occurence in your own opinion...... but even then everyone's opinion will be
You have a good point as far as you go and I might add a very well thought out point to consider. Good or and evil is not the same as cold or hot.
You cannot understand or comprehend hot without knowing what cold is. High or low or big or small or sweet or sour etc.. Everything must have an
opposite for our understanding in this physical plane. But when it comes to evil or good then that is a horse of another color isn't it? Why?
Because evil and or good is a perception of thought and has to be instilled in the brain.
How did evil or good become instilled in the mindset of the human? Was it taught and if taught who taught it? The Creationists tell us that God
taught it to the first humans that He created. Now if that is true then good i is a natural element of God while evil is that which is opposite of
this element. Instead of showing this on a physical plane, God had to show this in a spiritual plane or mind. Then in effect God is that scale or
ruler that shows both physical and spiritual observations.
Why would I say physical and spiritual? Because the Creationists believe that the physical plane is this terrestrial or earthly body which can sense
opposites which are determined by our five senses. The mind is a spiritual plane and requires a spiritual revelation. This is explained in the book
of Genesis as man being created in the image and likeness of God. The image of God is that visible spiritual realm while the likeness is that of the
invisible spiritual realm. Some creationists view this as God having both physical identification and invisibility the very same as He created man.
Now if the creationists are right, then the mind must also have rules the same as the body has rules.
This explains, to the creationists, why these mind teachings are to be observed as Laws. They believe that the mind (spirit) controls the body. The
physical plane automatically takes care of itself such as when you smash your finger you know that it hurts and that is evil or not good. Some people
do not realize that the reason Cain was not punished was simply because he did not understand that the act of murder was wrong. Cain was given a mark
of identification to protect him not punish him. After he was taught that he should not kill, then he more than likely instilled this in the minds of
his offspring. It is believed that God then gave Adam seven laws to educate his offspring.
Meanwhile the spirit of man controls his or her actions.and this was instilled in people from the onset of civilization. Nevertheless, most acts of
transgression of the laws in any culture are a result of deliberately doing evil in that culture. Or as they perceive evil. Yet in another culture
that which is evil to the Creationist can be good to that culture. Where then is that ruler? Each culture had its own ruler. This even breaks down
to a tribe or family and then down to an individual.
Now all of this works hand in glove with choice. If we were without choice then we would not be liable for our mindset but we have choice in order to
know good or evil. You can have good or evil, such as Cain did, without knowledge to choose but then what purpose is there in that to a Creator? So
Moses wrote that the tree in the garden was a tree of knowledge to do good or evil. Not that good and evil did not exist at this time because it did
exist as they made the choice to eat of that tree which looked pretty good to them. So this shows that Adam and Eve already had choice instilled in
the brain. Now that differs with us today because we have both choice and the knowledge to do good or evil instilled in our minds when we are born.
We do not have to eat of a tree to know good or evil.
So where am I going with all of this rambling? Well, I guess nowhere cause I can't prove a thing of what I said. Just a little of what I was taught
and even then who knows my teacher was not as muddled as I am. By the way this country is going it won;t be much longer that what is good today will
be evil tomorrow. Thanks for bending your ear.
