Our society has a shallow view of evil.
We know about Terrorists.
But we miss the human condition, and the present outworking of the curse on creation.
And we deny, or miss, or ignore, or laugh at - the action, in destruction, of 'the evil one'.
N.T. Wright says:
Firstly, we ignore evil when it doesn’t hit us in the face.
Second, we are surprised by evil when it does.
Third, we react in immature and dangerous ways as a result.
Let's come to terms with a more nuanced view!
