yin yang

A lot of folks are talking about how there’s “truth” in every religion and philosophy.  I reckon in a way that is so, because why would someone follow a belief system if nothing about it was true.

Keep in mind though, would you drink water from a bottle that was 99% pure and 1% sewage?

In the same way, it doesn’t take much lie to poison the truth.  Lies and sin are often characterized as “leaven” or yeast in the Bible; and, it doesn’t take much leaven to spoil the whole lump. (Gal 5:9, Col 2:8)

Many vain philosophies, traditions of men, and doctrines of devils have crept their way into the  “christian” church.

These concepts go by many names, variations, and schools of thought.  Here, I’ll address a simplified example of the school of eastern thought, the concept of there being some cosmic balance between “good” and “evil” or Yin and Yang.

The thing is, God didn’t create a universe in a balance between good and evil.  He created everything good.  Evil is basically the corruption of something good.

In any case, the Bible does not teach dualism, in fact it teaches quite the opposite:

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil;
that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:20

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turningJames 1:17
