Human beings have had knowledge of good and evil since the transgressions of Adam and Eve (Genesis 2:16–17). In this world ruled by principalities of darkness (Romans 13:3) we must live by our Lord, Savior and King who “..brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” (2 Timothy 1:9–10), and by his example to “…refuse the evil, and choose the good” (Isaiah 7:13-15) because it is wriiten: “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good” (Proverbs 15:3).
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
“Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding” (Job 28:28).
“He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good” (Proverbs 19:8).
“The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD” (Lamentation 3:24-26).
