What does “Evil” mean? What does “Good” mean? Do we really think about it?
Asked By: Dani3Forsyth 3 hours ago
Good and Evil. These words are thrown around all the time in our culture. It’s “evil” to be lazy, because it is the Sin of Sloth. It’s “good” to deny yourself pleasure, and even love. Why?
I’m not advocating amoral hedonism, but I have a problem with this. I don’t think we, as a culture, really think about what these concepts are. I propose that Good and Evil have become labels that we absently stick on everything. Shock words, if you will, that people follow like traffic lights, without really thinking about their meaning.
So, if you’re game for a bumpy ride of a question, let me ask you.
What are “Good and Evil” in your own words? And do you think about it?

God is good.
The creation of God is good.
The Revelation of God is good.
The Divine Education is good.
Man’s obedience to God is good.
Only disobedience of God, without
repentance, is evil.
Details of all these points can be found
in the Holy Books, avaible on the Internet
today for mankind to verify and apply.

“The supreme cause for creating the world and all that is therein is for man to know God. In this Day whosoever is guided by the fragrance of the raiment of His mercy to gain admittance into the pristine Abode, which is the station of recognizing the Source of divine commandments and the Dayspring of His Revelation, hath everlastingly attained unto all good. Having reached this lofty station a twofold obligation resteth upon every soul. One is to be steadfast in the Cause with such steadfastness that were all the peoples of the world to attempt to prevent him from turning to the Source of Revelation, they would be powerless to do so. The other is observance of the divine ordinances which have streamed forth from the wellspring of His heavenly-propelled Pen. For man’s knowledge of God cannot develop fully and adequately save by observing whatsoever hath been ordained by Him and is set forth in His heavenly Book.”
(Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 267)
