Can Opposites Be Reconciled?

Opposites are things in sharp contrast or in conflict. They contradict each other so that if one is true the other is untrue. And this is the situation with good and evil. Christ Jesus clearly taught that these opposites cannot be reconciled. He did not attribute evil to God, but he termed the devil, or evil, a liar. He said, "A good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit." Luke 6::43;

Here was a scientific statement that the Master constantly proved by destroying evil conditions, whether of mind, body, or nature, on the basis that God, good, does not create His opposite, evil. Yet since early Christian times men have persisted in trying to reconcile good and evil, Spirit and matter.
