Understand Good and Evil
The facts of "good" and the facts of "evil" are supernatural and eternal. Clear and true understanding of good and evil is the Providence of God. Theology and philosophy are human efforts to define what God Alone knows. God Alone knows what is good and what is evil. In ancient Hebrew literature, this much of the mystery was long-ago revealed to humanity: "To depart from evil is understanding."
In the experience of a living Soul on planet Earth, approximations of "right and wrong" must serve in place of clearly understanding the eternal, supernatural character of what is good and what is evil. In an unregenerate carcass of atomic flesh, no living Soul has the capacity to comprehend the complexity of the present situation. The world is too big and there's too much happening in it for one person alone to ever understand.
Modern science unveils more and more mystery, giving rise to more and more questions of how and why the experience of living in the Earth-universe should be as it is. Answers to such questions are empty and futile without the leadership of God in His Christ-manifestation.
"My Spirit will lead you into all truth and show you things to come. Without me, you can do nothing."
So says the Christ of God. Most people believe Jesus of Nazareth is "just another guy" who started another "religion." The majority of people on Earth to-day don't believe the absolute Sovereignty of God in Christ any more than they believe that "good and evil" are expressions of His eternal character: "I form the light. I create darkness. I make peace. I create evil."
Throughout history, people the world over have embraced strange ideas about God. Given the ultimate supernaturality of the living Soul and its experience in the Earth-universe, it is understandable how weak and dying humanity might have once misunderstood the elementary supernatural character of the current global predicament we find ourselves born into. But now...
"Unto us a child is born. Unto us a Son is given. The government shall be upon His shoulder and His name shall be called, "Wonderful Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace." And of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end; upon the throne of David and upon His kingdom, to order it, to establish it, with judgment and with justice from henceforth, even forever the zeal of the LORD will perform this."
That child is the Christ of God, Jesus of Nazareth. In His Christ-manifestation, God Himself made plain declarations and plain demonstrations of His absolute power and authority over all life and all things in life. In Christ, it is a good thing that God has done for all mankind. To think otherwise is evil. There is nothing "religious" about facing these elementary facts.
