A SIMPLE, YET PROFOUND REVELATION OF GOOD AND EVIL
My laptop dictionary describes a dichotomy as a ‘division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different’. According to the Holy Bible, the dichotomies of life deal with man’s struggle in choosing between GOOD and EVIL. For Bible believers, the existence of GOOD is attributed to GOD, and the presence of EVIL in the world, to Satan. Almighty God in Heaven is the source of all that is GOOD, and Satan, formerly Lucifer who was cast out of heaven, aka as the Devil, is the source of all evil. In John 10:10, Jesus says:
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Some dichotomies are:
Love-hate, life-death, war-peace, heaven-hell, narrow way-broad way; salvation-damnation; male-female; believer-unbeliever, true believer-false believer; wise-foolish, rich man-beggar; profitable-unprofitable servant;wheat-tares; good and faithful- wicked and slothful; holy-unholy, moral-immoral, etc. Jesus used dichotomies in His parables’ teachings. There are some listed in this link from my eBook. (See TAB BAR- SHOFAR EBOOK)
Simply speaking, the Bible is about GOOD and EVIL. There is GOOD and there is EVIL in all of our life’s challenges and choices. There is GOD who is our ADVOCATE and HELPER to do GOOD. AND there exists a formidable ADVERSARY or ENEMY of GOD who is EVIL- SATAN, THE DEVIL who seeks our downfall.
We can see from G-O-O-D = G-O-D
and from the word E-V-I-L = D-E-V-I-L, DEVIL aka as SATAN.
