Many good people have no desire for uncomfortable truths; but you’d think good people are fair minded and would embrace truth. Here’s why…
Both good and evil and branches of the same tree of spiritual death…!!
This isn’t an easy concept to wrap our heads around. From birth we have been conditioned to be good people. To do good and not bad or evil things. My parents were good people, they definitely didn’t get it that wrong, did they?
To accept good and evil are branches of the same tree means accepting our entire life’s conditioning was wrong – spiritually. But my parents were Christian…
The Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground—trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. (Genesis 2:9)
Good people are good because they have employed the knowledge of good to their lives. They have stayed away from evil. That’s a good but is not the best we can do.
Problem is good and evil are on the tree that leads to death. “…but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” (Genesis 2:17)
Only life-people are spiritually in a good place.
