The Reality of Good and Evil – What Dwells In Your Heart?


Ying_Yang_2We are at a precarious time in recorded history of this world.  A time which is characterized by the elevation of the stresses of life, confusion of false gods, persecution of Christians and Christianity, abdication of personal responsibility, rampant addictions to technology, substances and sex, and an overwhelming and forlorn state of hopelessness; perhaps better distinguished as apathy.

To be sure, there remain many, many dedicated and God-fearing souls walking the earth, however, the BIG difference being the ratio of good to misguided people in the world.  Sadly, the ratio is shrinking at an alarming rate.

This trend toward termination complements the absence of coping skills with the excesses of technology, entertainment and food. shield-of-faith We subsequently consume an amazingly large amount of time and spend a large amount of money on products including SmartPhones and Game Consoles.  We eat our way toward obesity.  We obsess with Social Media like Facebook and Twitter, while we slowly drift away from God, His Rules and most importantly, a deep and profound Love and Compassion for each other.

“To claim there is no evil in the world is to claim there is no God that will destroy it.  So, as real and present as evil is, so is God equally real and present.  It is but for each of us a choice to make, whether we invite God, or evil, for that matter, into our heart, mind and soul.”

Under the guise of freedom of religion, we’ve effectively pushed/forced God out of our schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, public events, media and in many cases, homes.  Yet the real absurdity is that all the while we are doing this, we scratch our heads and ponder why it appears that God has abandoned us?  I thought we were supposed to be known as the “intelligent” species.

Did you know?  As darkness is the absence of Light, so is evil the absence of Good.

Prayer_KeyI’ve always subscribed to the belief that self-awareness is no oxymoron.  To the contrary, it is the key to discovering your essence as a free spirit and child of God.  The takeaway from this homily is simply, yet profoundly, that it is due time for each of us to get serious about our lives, our behavior and our faith.  It is not enough to simply hold noble beliefs while passively watching the world around us plunge into darkness.

Each of us are called to bear witness to and testimony in support of the Goodness, Presence and Salvation by, the One True God.  As much as I respect everyone’s right to hold their own religious views in their hearts, regardless of your beliefs, the times dictate the need to turn our focus outward and directed at others in the hope we can successfully empower their minds to see, hearts to feel and spirits to embrace, the redeeming force of God and good in their lives and that of the world.

To that end, celebrate all that is Good and hold it closely and firmly to your heart.  There is no Greater Truth of which to speak.

Did you know?  Turbulent waters are on the horizon, my friend.  It is time to batten down the hatches.  Be well.
