Charles Malik (1906-1987) was a theologian, world-renowned academic and Lebanese Ambassador who holds the world record as having received the most honorary degrees ever conferred upon an individual (50 of them). We can conclude that he was an exceptionally smart and respected man. He wrote the following:

“There is truth, and there is falsehood. There is good, and there is evil. There is happiness, and there is misery. There is that which ennobles, and there is that which demeans. There is that which puts you in harmony with yourself, with others and the universe, and with God, and there is that which alienates you from yourself, and from the world and from God … The greatest error in modern times is the confusion between these orders.”

Think about this: You can choose wither to be on the side of what’s right and good and produces a happy, noble spirit within you, or you can choose to side in one way of another with what is wrong, evil, and demeaning to yourself. There is a just, holy, and loving God whom you can side with and follow in order to make your life “work” as it should, and there is Satan, the personification of evil and the promoter of everything that is degrading and destructive to the life of an individual. Don’t be confused; the choice is clear, and no one can make it for you but you.

He that is not with me is against me;

and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.”

—Matt. 12:30.

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you,

that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing:

therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.”

—Deut. 30:19

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

I am come that they might have life,

and that they might have it more abundantly.”

—John 10:10
