Mystery of Iniquity

God did not create sin or evil in the world.  Man has the free faculty to choose either good or evil.  Evil is like the absence of good, that is, something negative.  In the Bible, the last book talks about the eternal conflict between good and evil.  That’s because the devil, from envy, desires to bring more and more people to hell.  You will find the story there in the last book of the Bible,  the book of Revelation.

“War broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon.  The dragon fought back with his angels, but they were defeated and driven out of heaven.  The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had deceived all the world, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him…. The dragon was enraged with the woman and went away to make war on the rest of her children, that is, all who obey God’s commandments and bear witness to Jesus” (Rev. 12:7-17).

It would be good to determine to always say and live the truth.  Why?  Because “the devil is a murderer and the father of lies” (Jn. 8:44).
