Good and evil

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you make an effort to put on a good appearance, not speaking every thought that comes into your mind, and not volunteering information about your flaws, shortcomings, and sins? Do you suppose that everyone else does the same thing? From this do you conclude that the world is worse than it appears, even when it appears bad enough, and that there really is evil hiding in the darkness? It is possible to underestimate the evil in this world, but don’t underestimate my redeeming power. Though things may be worse than they appear, I am better than you can imagine. The contest between good and evil is greater than you know, but I will still win.
