“Evil: A frustration or misdirection of our divine potential.”
As we seek to understand each other in Unity, the subject of evil often arises.
We believe that evil is not a power of itself, an outside force opposing life; something we have to fight and destroy.
It is perhaps better understood as a frustration or misdirection of our divine potential. An unawareness, through upbringing and fear, of who we are: spiritual beings learning to live and work together.
Thus, when we pray, ‘deliver us from evil,’ rather than seeing a need to protect and defend ourselves from something separate from us, how about we say it to mean – help me to be free from the mistaken use of my own spiritual power. And, help me see the divine potential in you.
