Is doing evil a necessity of life?
Did the ancients know this and Is that why we are all named as sinners?
I think nature created the potential for evil in each of us because without that potential we would not have the ability to make a free choice between good and evil or evolve to find the fittest human.
Consider. Evolution has two major components that we must do to survive; compete or cooperate, as required. Cooperation we would see as good because it does not create a victim or loser. Competition would be seen as evil as it creates a victim and loser.
From this view, we must do evil and to survive as that process produces the fittest. To not compete would produce the least fit and we would likely go extinct.
Do you see this conundrum of us having to do evil? If you do, should God punish us for doing what we must do so as not to go extinct?
I do not see God as justified in punishing us and that is why Gnostic Christians like me are Universalists.
I see us all as not requiring salvation. God would not do evil by punishing us for doing what we must do to survive and thrive.
“O happy fault, O necessary sin of Adam”.
“in the light of paradise, even the sin of Adam may be regarded as truly necessary and a happy fault.”
If sin and doing evil is good and necessary for Adam, who represents all of mankind, then the church and I are suggesting that it is good that we all do evil.
