The Broad Spectrum of Evil

Evil comes in many different shades and colors. Hatred comes in different forms. It can consume you until that is the only emotion you have left. Hatred doesn’t need an explanation except it is the opposite of love. There are many things to hate that doesn’t cause evil…we can hate some types of food or places we’ve been, but when you hate people that is an evil that changes your heart to black. Apathy is an evil that sneaks up on someone until they don’t care about anyone else but themselves. Jealously is an evil that becomes deadly for it grows like a cancer. Envy is an evil that grows slowly inside of you. The only way to guard your heart against evil is by the love of Jesus Christ. It is a scientific fact that two things can not occupy the same space.

“Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (1 John 4:78)
