The Origin of Evil

Do you believe in two equal powers forever contending with each other? Then it is no wonder you are at war with yourself and with all the world. You will remain at war as long as you believe this. What but perpetual warfare can result from the clashing of two…

Seeing No Evil

The solid, solid universeIs pervious to love;With bandaged eyes he never errs,Around, below, above.His blinding lightHe flingeth whiteOn God's and Satan's brood,And reconcilesBy mystic wilesThe evil and the good.—Emerson If thou thinkest evil, be thou sureThine acts will bear the shadow of the stain;And if they thought be perfect, then…

Evil (Poem)

One Absolute exists: 'tis Love—'tis God!And Evil—dreamin child of Time and Space(A finite pair)—unwitting, works God's Will,To bring—if need be, through lone paths of pain—Chasten'd and meek, rebellious man to Heav'n.Our ills are discords unresolved in Time,That make sweet concord in Eternity. I reverently bless God the Father for what…

Justice in Evil

Today we frequently meet with the assertion, "All is good." Pope, in his famous essay on man, said: Whatever is, is right. and nearly all are familiar with Browning’s oft-quoted line: God's in His heaven, all's right with the world. In the face of these statements, the questions naturally arise:…

What is the Meaning of Evil?

By common consent, any rational solution of the origin, nature and purpose of evil is one of the most difficult and profound undertakings in which the human mind can engage. As a problem it has been regarded as insoluble, and has steadily held its place as the king of all…

Good and Evil

It was not strange I saw no good in man, To overbalance all the wear and waste Of faculties, displayed in vain, but born To prosper in some better sphere: and why? In my own heart had not been made wise To trace love's faint beginnings in mankind, To know…

The Lesson of Evil

Resist Not Evil

All evils consist in an imperfect apprehension of the facts of life, a mistaken attitude of mind towards human experience, and a consequent unsatisfactory conduct. Anyone who understands and practices the principle that makes this statement of Jesus reasonable, will not only have learned his personal secret, but will be…

The Problem of Evil

Any scheme of philosophy that recognizes evil as a factor to be reckoned with, in dealing with problems of human existence, seems to some persons to savor of pessimism. In whatever light the theme may be presented, in whatever fashion it may be treated, they regard any serious consideration of…

Good and Evil

We know nothing except by relations—comparisons. We can, therefore, radically understand nothing at all. Thus, with light and darkness we do not really know what light is, but we know, or rather experience, that darkness exists when there is space without light. And but for the condition, when there is…

I Will Fear No Evil

The highest and purest human perception is that which sees no evil and understands that all things, real entities (for subjective conditions are of our own making), are made by Good in good and for good. This is self-evident, for the manifestation of God must be universal, else how could…

Deeds of Evil (Poem)

The man who of malign intent Doth injure any living thing, Makes himself heir to myriad ills That he himself doth bring. For there is such a subtle bond Of unity ’twixt thing and thing That when a blow to one he gives They all do feel the sting. Their…

Look Not For the Evil

It is a truism to say that we recognize most clearly in other people the characteristics which we ourselves possess, and the principle needs little demonstration, for one never feels an implicit trust in the man who is constantly speaking of how deceitful he finds others; neither is one likely…
