Quick Thoughts: Evil

Sep 25, 2012 by

We are given reason for a purpose. We have a duty to use this gift to defend against things we know to be unreasonable. The ideas of being tolerant and accepting of things we know to be unreasonable and therefore wrong is the same as being tolerant and accepting of evil. Evil has existed, does exist now, and will always exist. Believing that it does not exist is foolish and dangerous. Evil grows when its existence is denied. It does not show its face or intentions overtly. It disguises itself in places we would not think it could exist in, or in places we would not think to look for it. We must be aware of its existence, be able to recognize it, be vigilant in confronting it, and be willing to eradicate it. Do not be weak, for weakness is an invitation for evil.

    Reason alone is not enough to protect ourselves from the evil in the world. You state “The ideas of being tolerant and accepting of things we know to be unreasonable,” but how can we know what reasonable and unreasonable are? Reason, however powerful it is, relies on the fact that we are born innately good. Reason is the neutral power to think for ourselves, and while it is meant to guide us toward the most reasonable truth, in nature reason only works if we naturally “know” what is righteous and what is evil.

    Do we not know, by nature, what is right and good?
