Welcome to the Twenty First Century, hope you do not mind a few wars.
The battle has begun between Good and Evil. No longer contained in the binders of books the battle between the two biggest forces in the universe has begun right here, on Planet Earth.
There are those that would deny the existence of God, but to do so would be denial of our existence. The narrowness of the human mind makes denial of truth easily acceptable to many. It is in this denial that Evil supplants itself into the minds of man.
Without truth and justice all is Evil, with it all is Good. This is the divide we face today and it is quite the chasm indeed.
The most powerful nation on the Earth declared yesterday the intention of waging war against Good all over the world. By doing so it has essentially declared it is more than a mere world leader, instead it has become the world hater. The extreme nature of hate and the resulting death and suffering can be seen by anone willing to open their eyes and look. We look at the record and trail of dead and tortured souls that lie in the wake of the institution we call the US government. 365,000 Iraqi civillians, 3000 coalition forces, and untold amounts of disabled. That is the true face of Evil.
In the name of Terrorism, or is it? Evil has proven in the past to have many faces and fought many wars for one reason or another. Deception is Evils greatest asset.
With deception it can convince even the most timid of souls to do it's bidding.
There are ways to fight Evil as it exists, one is to deny it quarter in your soul. Evil knows man is weak and many times unable to resist it's overwelming power. Only the strongest among us can naturally resist the lure of Evil, most need some sort of religious connection with which to reinforce internal fortitude and overcome Evils' influence.
I believe we as a human race are being tested on a regular basis, to see if we still have enough goodness to overcome the forces set upon us that would do us harm. We must be carefull with this fight for humanity. To kill all that we percieve as being evil, brings us down to the level of the very enemy we face.
So how then are we to fight this war? Quite simply by refusing to be intimidated by Evil, instead deprive the forces of evil a place to exist in our souls. To some this would mean defining their religious inner self and using it for internal reinforcement, to to others recognize Evil for what it is, violence, death, torture, and refuse to allow it to control your life. Humans have a unique makeup that allows us to say NO, we do not have to submit to anyone.
The forces of Good outnumber the forces of Evil by a substantial amount but the inherent non-violent nature of Good causes it to be passive in many cases allowing Evil to maintain it's dominance. Realizing the potential to be better than Evil is a great start. Recognizing the fight is on right now is another positive step and possibly the most important one.
The fight between Good and Evil is in full swing, the fate of mankind is on the line.
Which side will you be on?
