Evil did not come from God. God is unconditional love, and creates out of His love all the things of the universe. There are no mistakes, no less than love creations, and none of God’s creations ever become anything less than they were created to be. This means all God’s children are created in His image of perfect love, and remain perfect love forever. God’s children, that’s every single one of us humans, are eternal beings created in God’s love.
The physical world, in which we now live, was created to provide a classroom for young souls to learn about themselves and others. Here we take physical bodies that seemingly separate us from others. Then by learning about others we learn about ourselves. We rediscover who we really are, something not possible to do in the Oneness of the spiritual world. The physical world shows us a duality. Full of ups and downs, blacks and whites, hot and cold, etc., etc. A world of choice, perfect to exercise our God given free will, and stretch our young emotions and imaginations.
When the physical world was first created there was cooperation between God’s children who came to learn. They worked together to build their houses and gather their food. It was a true Eden where spiritual love was the main theme of physical life. They learned from each other, and they also learned from the duality of the physical world. Making choices that benefitted themselves as well as others. At that time the earth was as it is in heaven.
However, over the years, their focus began to change gradually from spiritual love to love of material things offered by the physical world. People became territorial, saying: “this is my land, and that is your land.” Cooperation faded into competition, they began to feel separated from each other, as well separated from God, and His love. Groups of like-minded people started communities or tribes. The tribes went their separate ways from one another, and started countries with well defined borders. Forgetting they were once One, becoming strangers to one another.
As the separation became greater, feelings of love became less. People began to fear about having enough. Enough food, shelter, land, and other material things. Fear turned into worry, and anxiety about personal survival in the physical world. They forgot they were God’s eternal children, they forgot the light of love, and slipped into ever deepening darkness. Fear is the father of all negative emotions. Guilt, jealousy, hate, greed, and anger, to list a few. With fear came evil. The strong took from the weak, the powerful took from everyone.
Tribes and countries warred on one another for material gain. God became symbolic and far away. Some began to fear God, and attribute Him with negative emotions such as jealousy, punishment, and revenge. Some began to say God doesn’t exist at all. Yet everything was as it should be.
The Father looked upon the mistakes of His children, and sent master spiritual teachers to show them the path back to light, love, and compassion.
Jesus said: Matthew 6:24:
No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they.
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.
Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.
If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Jesus said: Matthew 7:7:
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
Jesus said: Luke 12:32:
Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.
Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
But the people heard them not. Those teachers that were not murdered, and some that were, became objects of worship that would create great religions. Religions full of doctrine and rituals while the teachings of the Masters largely went unheeded or ignored.
Not being able to accept responsibility for their mistakes, and the evil they caused to fall upon the earth. People created demons, and devils upon which to blame the lack of light in the world, and the deepening darkness. Some even blamed God for the chaos they had caused, saying God was to blame for letting it happen.
But not all people ignored the teachings, there were still some that understood and began to walk the path back to God’s love. The path to love is a personal spiritual path. They heeded the teachings of love.
Jesus said: Matthew 5:38:
Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
The earth school was now complete. The beginning classes were now graduating from the duality of the lessons. The cycle was complete. All would graduate at their own pace, some quickly and some not so quickly. The perfect had experienced imperfection and regained the knowledge of good with a renewed enthuiasm of life. They now know the importance of love, caring, and compassion. And all was as it should be.
