Good and Evil: Truth vs. Myth
The Knowledge of Good and Evil
In Genesis chapter two, God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden, and told him not to take the knowledge of good and evil.
16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die. Gen. 2:16 & 17.
If you wanted your children to know the difference between good and evil, where would you take them to acquire that knowledge? Do religions teach that knowledge? Do the liberal atheists in academia declare their adversaries to be evil, racist, homophobes, and deplorable bigots? Do these intellectuals divide us between good and evil? Did that knowledge cause all of the holy wars, holocausts, jihads and violent atheistic revolution of history? Is it not the root cause of atheistic and religious violence? Do religious terrorists justify their genocidal acts of violence as “eliminating evil?” Think about it.
Declaring those who disagree with our ideology, religion, political or philosophical belief to be “Evil,” is extremely dangerous. People can be ignorant, stupid, wrong, mistaken, deceptive, or even criminal, but not evil.
