Thoughts on the nature of evil…

I believe in evil. I believe that all things have an opposite. If God is real then so is the devil. I was thinking on the nature of the universe the other day, as I do occasionally, and came to a conclusion. Selfishness, not money, is the root of all evil. The more Satan can convince people to put their own wants and needs before the needs of others or before the will of the Divine, the more he wins. The more we focus on what we want, rather than what we can do to further the will of God, the farther we draw from God. Thank goodness for the grace the Atonement of God’s Son provided for us. Works alone will never get us to God but it is by our works that we demonstrate to others that we have accepted God and Christ into our lives.
