Why it is natural to resist evil

Evil has no legitimacy. So we don't need to accept or to put up with it. God gives us only good.

Recently I heard an acquaintance say that if it weren't for the bad things in life, we wouldn't know how to appreciate the good. While such a statement may stem from trying to make the best of a bad situation, it rather implies that evil has some terrible necessity in daily life.

It is often true that after an ugly experience has ended, relief is so powerful that we are uncommonly grateful; but to decide from this that evil is essential leads to the unacceptable conclusion that it has some intrinsic goodness.
