The extent to which we enjoy personal and communal integrity is related closely to whether we: 1. See evil as pertaining to relationships which are lacking in love, openness, dialogue, listening, acceptance and tolerance --- or as pertaining to non-conformity, imperfections, impurities, and disobedience. 2. Regard alienation as a tool to be used in promoting conformity, perfection, purification and obedience --- or as a call for the works of Love in reconciliation, healing, transformation, and peace-making. 3. See evil people as those who need to be reformed through coercive actions --- or as people who are both victims of and perpetuators of alienative relationships. 4. Regard God as similar to an all powerful addict in search of faithful codependent servants --- or as the supreme Lover who is in search of gracious ways to reconcile alienated children that are engaged in alienative and disintegrative relationships. 5. Regard our difficulties in life as due to improper, inadequate, or weak techniques and technologies; or as due to lacks in the ways in which we relate to each other in our relationships of alienation, distrust, suspicion, and manipulations.
