Daily Prompt: Wicked Witch

Daily Prompt:   Wicked Witch by michelle w. on November 15, 2013

Write about evil: how you understand it (or don’t), what you think it means, or a way it’s manifested, either in the world at large or in your life.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us EVIL.

Evil

Is there anything evil in life or is there anything really evil in this world?

Evil is what you make out of something.  Nothing is born or made evil in its origin.

On the surface, drugs, cigarettes, alcoholism, gambling, pornography and many other addictive habits are considered ‘evil’.  Too much of something is evil, even money.  The love of money is the root of all evil.

Anything taken or enjoyed in moderation is a form of entertainment and it is when addiction kicks in that evil arises.  In a nutshell, evil is one’s own doing, nothing was intentionally born to be evil, wicked or deadly.  No one was born to be a murderer, a drug addict or a drunkard.

This opinion is one person’s viewpoint as prompted by

  1. I believe that evil is merely the absence of good, just as darkness is the absence of life. I believe that God is good therefore anything that is not of God is evil. Of course there are degrees. Cheating on a test is not as evil as killing another human being. Jesus said that whoever is guilty of breaking one commandment is guilty of breaking them all. In other words, no human being is capable of being truly good, ie., totally without evil/sin. That’s why Jesus came, to set us free. Read Andy Stanley’s book “How Good is Good Enough” for some good thinking on this subject.

    • Thank you Vera. There are lots of temptations in the world hence many go astray. It is not easy to stay good so it helps to be reminded all the time. Thank you for sharing about this topic and I will check out the book.
