NO DUALITY

The first whispered suggestion of the serpent in the garden of Eden was that of duality—knowledge of good and evil. And the entire Scriptural record deals basically with the effort of mankind to destroy evil and prove the singleness, or purity, of man as God makes him, incorporeal and spiritual.

When John the Baptist prophesied the coming of Christ Jesus, he described him as one whose fan would separate the chaff from the wheat. Centuries before, Isaiah had foretold that the Messiah would "know to refuse the evil, and choose the good" (7:15). Christ Jesus fulfilled these prophesies, teaching by parable and demonstration that there is no mingling of good and evil. His parables of the wheat and tares, sheep and goats, figs and thistles, grapes and thorns, all stress the lesson of man's innate goodness and the worthlessness of the admixture of an evil mind which would produce the illusion of human beings, double-minded men.
