The Oppressed VS The Oppressor by LDN-RDNT The Oppressed VS The Oppressor by LDN-RDNT
18cm x 28cm x 28cm. Super sculpey, armature wires, acrylic paints, and the Holy Ghost.


Some people believe "there is no good and evil, its only a state of mind". I do not know how i can respect that belief or concept.

Then i thought, If good and evil does not exist and since there is no good and bad, then the following things are OK:
tyranny, brutality, slavery, rape, murder, greed, carelessness, bullying, disrespect, hypocrisy, lies, stealing, ignorance, oppression, abuse of freedom, abuse of rights, self abuse, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, child abuse, all forms of abuse, all forms of violence....

If good and evil is just a state of mind, then there is a good state of mind and bad state of mind. Whether its mental or by heart or spirit, evil exists.

If good and bad does not exist, what is the basis of your relationship with your family? your friends? Your work mates? or even the people meet in the streets? What are the basis of your morals?

'Good' exists. Love is good. Love is substantial. Love is selfless. (What can be better than unconditional love?)
Caring and understanding is good. Generosity is good. Respect is good. Peace is good. Freedom is good. Being alive is good. Being grateful is good. Being grateful that you have a job is good. being grateful that you are able to eat more than 2 times a day is good. Education is good. Inspiration is good. Music is good. Art is good.

I believe good and evil exists. We just have to know the difference between the two.

Imagine if no one fought for what is GOOD..... where or what would you be now?

Love and peace,
LDN

'Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—;put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.'
– Philippians 4: 8-9

I don't believe that whole state of mind thing but I also don't think morality is just black and white. I think people do bad things with good intentions and sometimes people do good things for the wrong reasons. I don't think it's ever really as simple as one side is always right and one side is always wrong.

I'm imagining a world where no one fights for good. There is peace.

i don't believe in that whole "state of mind" bullshit either. Sounds like they're trying to make excuses or justify somethings.
