Evil is very real as you and I know from our own personal experience of sin. It is everywhere and it is immensely powerful. It is no different now than it was in those prescientific days of Jesus when everything was explained away by blaming it on an evil spirit. We have only become more sophisticated. We have used our intelligence and the wonderful gifts of science and turned these gifts into instruments of death and destruction. Let us renew the Spirit of Jesus in our world!
