The Deceptive Face of Evil
is a parable being said about Good and Evil. One day, Good and Evil
met upon the shore of the sea. They said to each other, “let
us disrobe and bathe
in the sea.” After they bathed in the sea for some time, Evil
came to the shore
and clothed itself with the garment of Good and walked away. Later
came out of the shore and found that its clothes had been taken away
Feeling ashamed to go naked, Good garmented itself with the clothes
To this day, both Good and Evil walk around in their disguised clothes.
Only some who know the face of Good and Evil are able to identify their
true nature in
spite of their garments.
Today’s Gospel reading sheds light on the theme of Evil. We may
origin of Evil, but we certainly can’t dispute its reality. Evil
is stark, grim and
colossally real. In everyday life we see evil in the form of tragic
murders and inordinate selfishness.
In the book of Genesis, unmistakably the Bible affirms the reality
of evil in the
story of the Serpent, which injects discord into the harmonious symphony
in the Garden of Eden.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus in the parable of the wheat and weeds
the reality of evil. Jesus does not give a philosophical explanation
of the origin of
evil, but He affirmed its reality. The weeds are not only useless but
Evil has a seed of destruction within itself. Evil has a day of judgment,
a day of
harvest, on that day it will be gathered and burnt.
Another question, which we have to confront now is: why God does not
evil now? If God were to do so, none of us would be alive. All of us
are a mixture
of good and bad. We must constantly work towards holiness. May, we
assistance of God free ourselves from evil, and thus move towards God
the giver of eternal life.
