    For every action there is a reaction. The battle between God and Satan has been going on ever since Satan rebelled against God and wanted to sit on God's Throne and be God. Satan is already judged and he wants to take as many as possibe to hell with him on that dreadful day of Judgement. It is only dreadful for those who deny Christ, so it is a choice that we have to make alone, and no one can do it for you.

    you cannot eliminate one & have just the other. its part of the balance of the universe. think of it this way, if you could plot everything good & evil on a line chart, with extreme good on one side & extreme evil on the other & nuetral in the middle. Then, if you were to wipe out the evil side, the remaining good that was closest to the center is now the new evil. the standards just changed a bit. works the other way too.

    Yes. There is good without evil. They don't depend on each other. Only are the definitions opposite.

    You can have good without evil. Evil or sin is just a lack of goodness. Like darkness is a lack of light. It is a corruption of a perfect thing.

    Evil only exists as an option, a choice. To refine our character and control our base appetites.

    Evil exists in abundance only because humans choose poorly.

    Evil can be banished and it will be banished. We will not always live together with those who chose Evil over Good.

    Two sides of the same coin.

    You would not know good without evil and you would not know evil without good.

    They require reference to have meaning.

    They are poles on one magnet.

    Well ever since Eve sinned evil has been present. Even though one might be saved they are still in the flesh. We are not perfect yet. I think we try to act like we are and point out others sin when all along we have our own sin.

    You woudn`t know what is good if there was not evil.

    How would someone know he is in dakness, if he never saw the light ?! One woudn`t be able to compare. So, learn from the darkness and from the light, but choose the light.

    i think that we can have good without evil but in that case, good wouldnt be considered anything special, it would just be a way of life without obstructions. i do think that good is appreciated more because of all the evil in this world.

    They are part of each other because, you can't have one without the other. A similar analogy is that you can't have light without darkness. If the light is stopped, you have it's partner.
