If God embodied both good and evil, yin and yang, in a duality of opposing or complimentary absolutes, eternally competing for supremacy to form an ersatz harmonious balance, how could we tell his ethical children apart?
If the same admixture of natures was given in his image to be a part of who we are, how would we know what is right or wrong, good or evil, just or unjust?
How could we find our way through the uncharted jungle of life? What is our source, what is our destiny, our purpose and what is our guide-star for what is true?
Fortunately, we don’t have to live in eternal twilight, seeking endlessly for what cannot exist. God is One, and in him there is no shadow. His light is steady, his word is sure.
“Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures.” James 1:17
