I am working on a hypothesis that the root of all evil is a specious concept, planted by Lucifer in the Garden of Eden to grow what we call ‘the grapes of wrath’ east of Eden.
Sin is a morality based concept that was not a part of paradise. Mistakes happen. Mistakes can be fixed. Unless they are perceived as sin. Such as ‘nakedness,’ nudity, lasciviousness, ‘I know what you were/are thinking’type DNA junk.
So with a taste of the knowledge of good and evil naturally came ‘judging’ and the necessity for the golden rule.
And mankind's morality based inability to practice the golden rule.
I call this "THE DIVINE CONUNDRUM"
