Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done On Earth As It Is In Heaven. These words which Jesus spoke to us when teaching us how to pray, do they tell us to eradicate the world of evil? Jesus knows this is an impossibility for us, however nothing is impossible for God.
There are clearly two types of people in the world, good and evil. It is clear that this alone is what separates humans, one from another. It is not color of skin or religion or sexual orientation, it is the difference between people of good will versus people of ill intent.
It is difficult to judge good and evil, there are genuinely good people who do bad things. There are evil people who sell themselves as good.
We should not seek to root out evil, identify it and destroy it because we cannot, we should instead focus on creating a world where poverty and hunger do not exist. We should focus on systems that support people and families. We should focus on eliminating borders.
