At first all we know is pleasure and pain.
We pursue pleasure and avoid pain.
This leads to burn-out and emptiness.
We begin to search.
We may become aware of evil in our world.
And we set out to battle against evil and defeat it.
At last we realize that this will never work.
It just embroils us in violence.
Finally we look to Jesus.
Jesus said not to battle against evil but to love your enemies and pray for those who abuse you.
This non-violent benevolence leads directly to God.
Love God and love your neighbor, love even your enemies as Jesus taught.
God punishes no one.
All are forgiven.
And reconciled through Love.
