Rejecting God's love and laws (by refusing to obey God's commandments} is the sign of evil. Non-conformity to God's will is a clear sign of evil. Evil-people tempt others to do as the evil-people do --- so it is dangerous to associate with non-conforming evil people. People are born with original sin --- which makes them prone to yield to the temptations presented by the non-conformity of evil-people. Evil is born of decisions to associate with non- conformists who do NOT honor God's will through good conformity to God's will. Good people work to promote conformity to God's good will. God makes clear to good people what His will is regarding evil-people: that they repent and conform to God's good laws. As with contagious diseases, it is best to isolate evil-people from good-people, so that the evil influences of the presence of evil-people will not infect good- people. The best way to avoid infection is for good-people together in sanctuaries where evil-people are not welcomed/permitted together in influential evil ways --- which are not in conformity to God's laws. Another way to minimize the temptation of good-people by evil-people, is for good-people to lock evil-people in prisons --- away from good people who would otherwise be tempted to become non-conformists. People who find pleasure in being non-conformists thereby prove that they are evil --- because truly good- people find pleasure only by being intentionally in the presence of God as obedient children of God. We cannot be good servants fulfilling the Will of God so long as we do not know who-is-good and who-is-evil; so we can separate them appropriately. The knowledge of good and evil is the beginning of the wisdom which God offers us, and calls us to live by. Evil-people refuse to accept and internalize such knowledge; and so are rejected by God and God's most faithful servants. Reread the story in Genesis about the "Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil". What is the meaning of the story? It appears in two places in Genesis. How much of the above do you truly believe? Why?
