Such good people assume that they have been given the responsibility of making other people to be good people, like they themselves are. Our natural response to other people's attempts to control us is to rebel against their attempts to control us; regardless of the specific direction of the attempts to control. Such natural rebellion in response to attempts to control leads to confusion of natural consideration of the consequences of choices among available alternatives. In rebellion it is hard for us to do what is good for us. Thus good people often make it difficult for us to wisely consider the alternatives which are open to us. Some good people have eaten of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and presume to know the difference between good and evil for other persons. Their presumptions lead to their alienation from bad people, and to the alienation of bad people from good people. Communication between good people and bad people breaks down because of the presumption of the knowledge of the difference between good and evil people by the good people. Good people are rarely as aware of their alienation from bad people, as bad people are aware of their alienation from good people. Good people pretend not to be alienated, and see no need to do anything. Bad people know they are alienated, but do not know what to do about it. Sinners are good people who have learned to admit that their presumed knowledge of the difference between good and evil people is alienative knowledge which is of no helpful value. Sinners know they prove to make mistakes and have learned to profit from the experiences to which their mistakes have lead. Sinners are humble people who seek to learn how to be themselves in open and honest communication with all people, and so learn from other people's mistakes. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
