just wanted to say that I don't believe that Father is at war with evil (even though there are scriptures that say that He hates it). Just wanted to point out that while I understand where you are coming from and why this is so important to you (I also think that the idea that the universe is a battlefield between two almost equal powers is absolute heresy), I wanted to point our that it doesn't say anywhere that our Father is darkness. He might hide and clothe Himself in darkness and even make it, but He Himself is Light and there is no darkness in Him at all. That's why I think it is wrong to say that darkness or evil orginates from within Him. Rather it is Him withdrawing something of His Light and Goodness that brings forth darkness and evil (for whatever reason). Now all this is still in His hands, cause He is omnipresent. However, what I have a problem with is that it could look like you are saying that there is darkness in the Father, in His heart or center. Scripture is also very clear that He is Good, it doesn't say anywhere that He is evil (which I don't believe you are saying by the way). This is not to criticise you, just something I personally would feel uncomfortable with in the way it is expressed (but hey, it is almost impossible to describe the mystical things of our Heavenly Father in human language). While Father obviously created the temporal tension in the universe (which is also an inadequate way of putting it I think and I understand how it could be misunderstood) He also makes it very clear what He thinks of evi and darkness.
Amos 5:14-15 "Seek good and not evil, that you may live, and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as you say. Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate."
Proverbs 8:13. "The fear of the Lord is to hate evil, pride, arrogancy, and the evil way."
Psalm 97:10 "O ye who love the Lord, hate evil."
Romans 12:9 "Abhor that which is evil and cleave to that which is good."
As I said that doesn't mean that the universe is a battle between Light and darkness. It just means that one of them is temporaly and the other one will remain. Both have a purpose. Another thing is that I believe that what comes out of the Light is eternal, because of its nature, while everything that was created in another way (by withdrawing this Light) will cease. The Light shines in the darkness and when darkness is swallowed up in His Light, it will be transformed into Light, and evil into Goodness.
By the way I don't think that you want to justify evil, that was not the reason why I posted the scriptures. No one who has read your writings-especially on my church- would come away with that impression. I still think that human language is very inadequate to describe all this Divine mysteries and that's one of the reasons why we end up in all this debates (sometimes of course we simply miss the point and need to grow out of our own thinking).
