So pure evil (or hell if you wish) is the total absence of pure love (God). God no more causes evil than light causing darkness.
Why can't love not be a thing, but rather a privation: an absence of evil (in various degrees)? So pure love (or heaven if you wish) is the total absence of pure evil (Satan). Satan no more causes love than darkness causing light.

Audacity,

It's long, but well worth the time. It explains the answer to your question, and much more. Explained in laymans terms.

Thanks for the heads up, but it's far, far too long.

Take your time. Read a little when you can. That's what I did. It probably took me a couple of months to actually finish reading it, a little at a time.

But I'm telling you, however long it takes, it's well worth it.
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

116 pages far, far too long? Are you being serious?
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me.

For someone who's not actually interested in getting answers even 1 page is far too long.
Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

Yeah, thought about it after I pressed "submit" but was too lazy to edit/delete. :mrgreen:

That's basically a short novel. Try to think of it that way.

I don't really prefer reading from a screen. I love the feel of paper in my hands over a glass screen.

Deleted by moderator. Please do not use that word. Yes.
That's why I copied it. :mrgreen:

EDIT: Hahaha... Why such a partybreaker, Rick? :mrgreen: The f word fit there perfectly! You can't say it didn't! :lol:
I merely emphasized on how much I agree with Horator.
