I figure that I might as well do this before we leave. I still have no idea how things are going to turn out on this trip. I haven’t heard whether or not we are taking my computer, and if we do take it I’m not sure how much internet access I will have. Anyway, I might as well work a little on this book, er pamphlet, since I’ve done everything I need to do this morning anyway.
The first real chapter of the pamphlet begins by talking about evil. Alcorn writes “We all know something is wrong whenever we’re hurting”. our suffering reminds us that this world is not a perfect place. Evil elevates someone or something against God. That’s what happened in the garden and got us into trouble in the first place, isn’t it.. Hmm, so is it wrong to want more of a life where I make more of my own decisions. I don’t know! I wish I did.
Alcorn writes, and I’ll paraphrase here, wrongdoing is a primary evil and suffering is a secondary evil.. I know, personally that I’m more okay with suffering than doing something wrong. I feel awful when I do wrong things. I know better, but for some reason I choose to do wrong, and that makes me feel worse about everything.
I am going to go on and go.. If I don’t write before, I will try my best to write on Monday.
