Can Good be good to Evil?
25th of January 2017
Often Christians, Jews and Muslims claim that their religions are Monotheistic, i.e. believing in one creator God who created everything and is all good, all powerful and from which no evil can come, but in fact it is more dualistic in the form of Zoroastrianism, i.e believing in two opposing forces of good and evil, God and Satan, heaven and hell. In fact, modern versions of Christianity borrowed all those concepts including “Free Will” from Zoroastrianism which predates Christianity by at least 2000 years and entered the Western world about 500 BC. Mix this with a bit of the Trinity concept of Ancient Egypt (Osiris, Isis, Horus), Ancient Babylon (Nimrod, Tamuz, Simerimas) or Greece (Zeus, Apollo, Athena) and you have the recipe for…modern Christianity.
On a side note…BC stands for Before Christ. AD stands for “Anno Domini” (Latin for in the year of our Lord”), but the more politically correct terms used lately are masked as BCE (Before the Common Era) and CE (in the Common Era)…which Christians should reject, because these politically correct terms denies Christ as their Lord.
Nevertheless, in Zoroastrianism the creator god is called “Ahura Mazda” (not a model of the Japanese car maker) and the destructive god is called “Angra Mainyu”.
Basically Zorastrianism believes that you should do good deeds, have good thoughts and speak only good and truth and if you do the right things all good rewards will come to you and the world will be a better place.
However this is not what the Bible says.
Deuteronomy 6:4-5 (the first part of the Shema prayer of Judaism) we read about the Oneness of God. “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.”
Later Jesus repeated this.
Now this is where it all becomes a bit confusing, because either God is ONE or he is not. Either he is all powerful, almighty, all seeing, all good…or he is not. So where does evil come from if no evil can come from God, but God created everything? He must have created evil as well…or at least what we perceive as evil, which is actually not…
So this is normally where the Dominee and Reverend start to do their mental gymnastics.
The answer must then be that EVERYTHING does come from ONE God. Even those things that we perceive as “Evil” do come from God and is part of his “Divine plan” that will all work out towards a good outcome in the end.
But this leaves us with some other problems, like the good and almighty God telling us to do things that Libtards will perceive as evil…as in 1 Samuel 15:3…”Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.”
Certainly if God is all good and almighty, He would not have put these evil Amalekites there in the first place and even if Satan put them there, God doesn’t need our help to do his dirty work for him? He can just send a lightning bolt and smite them. So why does he then want us to go and commit genocide against these “evil” people he created, who are not really “evil”, because nothing “evil” can come from God? Is it just to test our faith in him, our obedience?
And then there is the question of Richard Dawkins: “If there is a “Grand designer” who designed the “Grand Designer”?
And then who was the designer of the designer of the designer, ad infinitum?
Like I said it is all terribly confusing and one can understand how the comedian George Carlin came to the conclusion that religion is all bullshit and maybe he is right, but have you tried to explain Atheism? It is even more confusing and more bullshit. I mean where does it all come from then and more importantly…what’s the point?
You would think that these wise dominees after studying theology for seven years at university would be able to explain all this bullshit to you, but they can’t. They cannot give you any answers, because religion is all illogical. Instead their strategy is to confuse you with even more bullshit so that you just give up in the end. You can actually read their eyes spelling out to you: “Shut the fuck up, just believe and donate a tenth of your salary…and come next Sunday so we can fill up your head with more bullshit and endless layers of guilt so you can keep on paying”.
However…these concepts of “good” and “evil” are not definitive absolutes. They seem very relative and flexible. Further how do you know what perfect is if you don’t have imperfect to compare it to? How do you know what good is unless you have evil to compare it to?
You will find that there are many forms of what people constitute as “good” and “evil” and often it is completely topsy-turvy. Just look at all the diametrically opposing views in religion and politics where everyone believes his/her view is good and the other person’s view is bad or evil. Or just treat people exactly the way they treat you and they will think you are Evil.
The lion eats the Impala. Big deal. I don’t think the lion is evil. The lion himself does not think he is evil, but the Impala will probably have a different opinion.
In the French revolution the Jacobins believed that all those heads they chopped off with the Guillotine were to do good and rid the world of the evil exploiting bourgeoisie. The Spanish inquisition honestly believed they were doing good by burning witches at the stake and ridding the world of evil. The conquistadors honestly believed they were doing good by killing entire satanically orientated civilizations such as the Mayans, Incas and Aztecs who were practicing human sacrifice. Mugabe honestly believed he was doing good by chasing the evil white colonists off their farms and out of the country and Isis honestly believe they are doing God’s good work by ridding the world of the evil Christian infidels.
Examples are legion. Take Apartheid for instance. The whites who voted for the NP and lived through Apartheid were not “evil” people and certainly did not perceive themselves as “evil”. They genuinely perceived themselves as good. The NP government could even justify it biblically yet the world perceived it as the most evil system in the entire universe.
These white South Africans during Apartheid went to church on Sunday, they went to Sunday school, they prayed at the dinner table, they prayed before they went to bed, they helped the poor blacks, they gave them clothes and food, built hospitals and schools for them, treated them in the hospitals completely free and even gave them their own countries to rule and subsidized them with millions of taxpayer’s money. These were good Christian people doing good Christian things…At least in their minds.
However…all this “goodness” was perceived by the blacks and libtards of the world as an “evil system of oppression” of the worst order.
And you know what? Maybe they were right. Maybe Apartheid, at least as it was practiced in the 1970’s and 1980’s, was evil, because any system that does good to evil instead of destroying evil, is evil in itself and needs to be destroyed.
Now the evil/angelic ANC is in charge, stealing, corrupting killing, etc. and they and their followers genuinely believe that they are the “good” ones. They even say that you should vote for the ANC, because God is on the side of the ANC. God put the ANC in charge and will ensure that the ANC rules until Jesus comes. Jacob Zuma compared himself, his betrayal and his suffering to that of Jesus and even recently said that the birth of the ANC was like the day that Jesus was born
On top of it, with the recent fires in the Western Cape, The blacks rejoiced that white farms were being burned down and saw it as God’s work seeing that fire and wind are God-given elements, the fires were retribution for the evil that whites did to blacks, which the whites believe was only good.
So what then about the fires destroying hundreds of shacks in the townships from time to time? Divine retribution for all the farm murders?
Funny also that all the targets of the fires just happened to be Afrikaans institutions such as the ATKV Goudini Spa, The Vergelegen farm, belonging to the Afrikaans billionaire Anton Rupert, the house of the Afrikaans poet Totius, the “Druk my niet” wine farm in Paarl…Coincidence? An act of God? You be the judge.
Not a single township burned down. The blacks certainly see this, as the article states, a sign that God exists…that he was destroying evil.
Now the question is this: Should you do good to evil? Should we love those who seek our destruction?
Jesus for one acknowledged that evil exists and that you should not do anything against it and actually assist it and pray for it.
In the Bible in Matthew 5:39 Jesus instructs his followers, “But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.”
And in Matthew 5:44, Jesus further instructs his followers: “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
Now I have a big problem with that, because I cannot assist evil or do nothing against it. That would make me evil too. Maybe I am stupid and just don’t understand it all or maybe I am not a Christian, because I don’t agree.
Jesus says in verse 48 that we must be like God… “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
Does that mean that God does nothing to evil too? Does God turn the other cheek to evil? Does God assist evil (which will make Him evil as well)? Surely that cannot be true and if God wants you to do nothing against evil why did he then create evil in the first place? If he did not create evil he is not almighty and the creator of everything.
Ultimately God destroys evil, but why then make it in the first place. It is like spending a lot of time and energy building a sandcastle and destroying it afterwards. What’s the point? Fun?
Like I said…It is all MEGA confusing and you eventually get to the point where you just switch off the light and wait for God do to his thing. Destroy the evil bastards. Where you just say, “Prove to us, God, that you exist.”
God does not disappoint. He lets you ask questions and reason and use your brain and doubt and when your faith is at its lowest ebb he does something extraordinary…like what happened on the 16th of December 2016, the Day of the Vow where our ancestors promised God to remember the triumph of good over evil at Bloodriver for all eternity, which the ANC has renamed the Day of Reconciliation where they want us to embrace Evil as Good, because to them the 20,000 odd Zulus who came to kill the Voortrekkers that day in 1838 were actually doing good. They wanted to rid their land of the evil white man. Likewise for the Wenen/ Bloukrans Massacre where they smashed the heads of white babies against wagon wheels earlier that year…all meant to do good. Right?
Nevertheless…last 16 December Jacob Zuma delivered a speech in Gopane near Zeerust in the North West where he talked about how evil Apartheid was, how painful the past was for the blacks, how the evil Apartheid whites killed their poor innocent bomb-planting, necklacing terrorists, how the blacks should forgive the evil whites and we should all reconcile, etc, etc…and as the crowd cheered “Zuma, Zuma, Zuma!”…a sudden freak storm came out of nowhere, ripped the tent to shreds, blew it away and sent Zuma running for cover. Thirteen people were injured.
Zuma evacuated after Marquee collapses
Coincidence? I don’t think so. As far as I am concerned God sent a clear message to Zuma and the ANC to stick their reconciliation where the sun does not shine, because you can NEVER reconcile good with evil.
I remember sitting there, watching the spectacle thinking, “Hallelujah! There is a God in Heaven!”
And so dear people, my faith was restored.
Now coming back to Deuteronomy 6…what did God mean when he said: “ Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength” ?
It means that everything you do should be geared towards serving God and destroying evil. When you keep your body fit and in shape and train to become stronger in the gym, it is only to serve God better and destroy evil. If you train at the firing range it is to serve God better and destroy evil. The books you read, the education and knowledge you gather, is all to serve God better and destroy evil.
Therefore one should always carefully consider one’s actions and the ultimate consequences they will have, because even if they seem like acts of goodness and kindness at first, can ultimately support evil. That should never happen. One cannot save evil. One cannot change evil into good and any attempt to be good to evil makes one become evil oneself. Evil should be destroyed.
