Man Has Never Been at War with Man

We are told in the Bible to "magnify the Lord." Does not this include magnifying or enlarging our recognition of God's qualifies, which are all good?

It follows as a natural result that as we increase our understanding of God as good, we also expand our recognition of the goodness of man, for man is the constant expression, or reflection, of God. Knowing this, we shall gain relief from the erroneous thought that man can hate or do evil, for in the degree we see the goodness of man as God's expressed image, we find, happily, that our belief in evil has diminished. We then realize that man has never been at war with man, because good can have no conflict with good.
