The evil in the hearts of men

Finney Reported by The Editor. Charity thinketh no evil. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Thinking evil in the sense of the text includes thinking unjustly. Forming unjust opinions of others, and giving indulgence to feelings in correspondence with our unjust opinions is certainly evil thinking.

So is thinking enviously.

When envy governs our opinions of others, we are guilty of evil thinking. So of suspicious thinking. It is another modification of thinking evil. The same is true of all malicious thinking. Thoughts of malice are of course evil.

Nor can we say less of revengeful thoughts. They are evil and only evil, continually. Unkind and ill-natured thoughts partake of the same general character. None can doubt that all such thoughts are intrinsically evil, and not good.

Even if those faults are real, it is not wise to dwell upon them, certainly not unless we can answer the ends of benevolence by so doing. What then shall we say of brooding over those assumed faults of others which are not real but only imputed? Perhaps they owe all their apparent evil to the tinge they get from your morbid imagination, or your jealous heart.

In such a case what can be worse than the fermentation of such a mind as yours? It not only wrongs others, but terribly corrodes your own mind. There can be no peace to him who indulges such evil-thinking. Thinking over personal injuries, whether real or imaginary, is evil.

In such a world as this it will often happen that men are really wronged. But even then why should they double and treble the evil resulting to themselves by dwelling upon it, poring over it, talking about it till they get every sensibility of their being on fire?

What is the use? He only spoils his own peace, and the peace of as many others as he can bring under his poisonous influence. Such thinking is surely a great evil. Worse still if the supposed injury is only imaginary.

Then wrong is done to the assumed authors, besides all the mischief to the self-tormenting sufferer who perhaps is himself the only cause of all the evil, resulting first to himself, next to his friends, and last but not least, to the man wrongfully accused of the imaginary injustice.

Behold how great a matter a little fire kindleth! Is not all thinking which kindles up such fires, "evil? The word here rendered charity means love.

This is its legitimate meaning, and in other passages in the Bible it is usually rendered love.I think evil is a human construct to make an opposite for the idea of good and if you think of scale with good on one end and evil on the other seems the line between good and evil blurs and even more so if you only take parts of a person and add it to the scale.
