EVIL

How can any Muslim take a knife into his hand, slide it along the neck of a tied up man and methodically and bloodily cut off his head? How?

How can any Christian enslave a black man, exploit him economically, whip and beat him, rape his wife and daughter, and hang him from a tree for all to see? How?

How can any man order or follow orders by locking up millions and poisoning them with gas until they die of suffocation just because they are Jews? How?

How can any human being in the 21st Century torture to death another human being? How?

How can one people execute genocide on another people?

Where did this metaphysical entity we call moral evil come from? What is its origin? Where is it going?

What has happen to the human species whereby they commit such heinous evil acts upon their fellow human species? What other animal does this to their own species?
Aren’t we the higher animals?

For those who believe in macroevolution, what happened to the gradual evolution and higher development and knowledge over time of the human species?

For Judeo-Christians, moral evil is the consequences of sin.
Perhaps this sin, though very real, is even more enigmatic than we thought. I cannot comprehend evil and obviously cannot explain what I cannot comprehend.

However, the Atonement teaches Christians that God is dealing with moral evil and this sin by bearing these metaphysical entities into his son’s sacrifice for us.

So, we do not have, I believe, an adequate explanation of moral evil, but we are given the cure for it if we accept the cure by faith.
