We see dualistic thinking in science.
Theories of anti-matter and black holes etc..
This is an attempt to balance everything out.
There is dualistic thinking in the Bible, especially in the Gospel of John.
It appears in most religions.
Dualistic thinking in religion is an attempt to explain life's pain.
Religious dualism is false.
There is no Satan, no dark forces.
There is only one God and He is good.
God is everything, everywhere and more.....
What would it mean if we thought holistically.
God (good) would be everywhere, everyone.....
"God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good." Genesis 1:31a (NRSV)
Evil is a generalization, a label.
It covers the truth :
That there are reasons for everything.
Suffering is caused by sin.
Sin is caused by fear.
So everything and everyone is forgivable.
