Just as it may be said that the greatest good comes from religious people, so the greatest evil is from them also. While the first beast from the sea may be regarded as political, the second wild beast is religious and John saw it, "...ascending out of the land, and it had two horns like a lambkin's, and it spoke as a dragon. And it is exercising all the authority of the first wild beast in its sight, and making the earth and those dwelling in it to be worshiping the first wild beast, whose death blow was cured." (RV 13:11-12, CLV)
Wickedness, iniquity and lawlessness are opposites of the God Who is love. Fear is a negative opposite of love; indifference is a neutral opposite of love; and, hate is a positive opposite of love.
