The Shack at the moment, mostly because a number of people have asked me if I’ve read it so I gave in to peer pressure! There is an interesting thought about good and evil that doesn’t give away anything of the plot so you can read on in safety.
The discussion centers around a perception that we humans don’t know what is good and what is evil, and the realisation that every decision we make about what is good and bad is based on our own interests, not God’s. We decide good and evil based on how events affect us.
I’m struggling a bit with that thought. Are there things that are simply ‘good’ or ‘evil’? Or is any decision based in our own perception and self-interest? What do you think?
