God created and blessed man. Man left God and his goodness (so he could know good AND evil).
Well, here we are. We know both good and evil. Great.
Genesis 6:5 The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
One of my favorite songs on the matter was blogged a while back: “people just ain’t no good” . It’s a lovely ballad about lost love and lost hope. I thought about the reaction some might have to Monday’s Julie Andrews song. Sickening. Why? Too sweet. Doesn’t seem real. We live with disappointment and consider ourselves savvy when we notice the bad. Movies like SAW (never saw it, the poster was more than enough) is more enticing to many. Why? We sense something is wrong and it helps us, in a twisted way, to have that wrong played out for us where we can watch others struggle with it (instead of us).
Monday: God is good and creates good (praise and celebrate)
