To create a dichotomy, necessary to define both concepts.

finite version of good and evil. Talk to me when you have infinite understanding of both good and evil.

Good and bad doesn't exist outside of the human mind.

If you remove all humans from the Universe, where will we find good or bad?

The Universe has no use for these things, it creates as it destroys, and it destroys as it creates.

Why would you think God would be any different?

Where in this Universe have you ever seen a being of pure good or evil? That is not the nature of life as we witness it.

of course some good can be used for bad purposes…

but the kind of good on this planet: beauty, childbirth, love, true hope in salvation and eternal life in Jesus Christ… these things transcend that possibility …


Testimony of the Evangelists by Simon Greenleaf, one of the greatest legal minds that ever lived:

"Lastly, the great character they have portrayed is perfect. It is the character of a sinless Being; of one supremely wise and supremely good. It exhibits no error, no sinister intention, no imprudence, no ignorance, no evil passion, no impatience; in a word, no fault; but all is perfect uprightness, innocence, wisdom, goodness and truth. The mind of man has never conceived the idea of such a character, even for his gods; nor has history or poetry shadowed it forth. The doctrines and precepts of Jesus are in strict accordance with the attributes of God, agreeably to the most exalted idea which we can form of them, either from reason or from revelation. They are strikingly adapted to the capacity of mankind, and yet are delivered with a simplicity and majesty wholly divine. He spake as never man spake. He spake with authority; yet addressed himself to the reason and the understanding of men; and he spake with wisdom, which men could neither gainsay nor resist. In his private life, he exhibits a character not merely of strict justice, but of flowing benignity. He is temperate, without austerity; his meekness and humility are signal; his patience is invincible; truth and sincerity illustrate his whole conduct; every one of his virtues is regulated by consummate prudence; and he both wins the love of his friends, and extorts the wonder and admiration of his enemies. He is represented in every variety of situation in life, from the height of worldly grandeur, amid the acclamations of an admiring multitude, to the deepest abyss of human degradation and woe, apparently deserted of God and man. Yet everywhere he is the same; displaying a character of unearthly perfection, symmetrical in all its proportions, and encircled with splendor more than human. Either the men of Galilee were men of superlative wisdom, and extensive knowledge and experience, and of deeper skill in the arts of deception, than any and all others, before or after them, or they have truly stated the astonishing things which they saw and heard."

Woe/You mean the Fallen that is...

Binding them into the Abyss for all eternity if they so choose...

Simple, They are bound here for THEIR perverse meddlings with the creation and for taking the daughters of men...

Not our decision, it's in their power to change the outcome or penalize themselves for the JUDGEMENT that shall be rendered...

Wickedness and perverse evils will not be allowed to destroy all life here and throughout the Eternal Cosmos's...

THESE ONES will judge themselves and we can do nothing about this matter...

Thread: A poem from the void

balance of the integral fabric of reality
Children of the void, sons of chaos, it is the last hour. The hebdomad is complete. We have been remade by Yaldabaoth in the image of the seven archons who created and enslaved this world. We are the hidden masters. We are the architects of anarchy. We are the dark fucking soul eaters, lords of the unrighteous. Today our new reign begins in a new reality. I told you! I told you! I told you we'd be deathless! Our legion will rise from behind the veil to reap the pain that we have wrought. The seven shall become a vast multitude and these days will be of vengeance and wrath. The deathless eon has begun! It's a beautiful fucking day.

THESE ONES are not being asked to get down on their knees to gravel/bow and beg for forgiveness like a slave...

THIS IS A MESS and Pure in Heart Innocence of babes and the ONCE nurturing womb that births them is dying right before Uoy unbelieving eyes and they cannot blame anyone else but themselves...

Woe/Uoy ones have been receiving council on how to begin to fix THIS MESS you created...

Uoy wanted a place that Uoy could rule and be over the creation as gods and this is the best that Uoy can do...

Help US help Uoy and if not Uoy ONES are already aware that the Time agreed upon has been cut short for what has come to bee the biggest MESS WE have ever witnessed...

It's a good Time to begin to tell the truth and unwind THIS MESS!!!

Im way to vain to comtemplate an evil life. Beauty is Godly, whilst evil tends towards decay (very ugly).

Re: Is an evil God capable of creating good, and if he is, what would motivate him to do it?
There is only "good" and "evil" in the context of our lives. In ultimate reality there is no such thing.

Do you honestly think God can do anything to itself that would make it think it was either good or evil?

The answer to that would be yes, as a human being and no as ultimate reality.
