How do we deal with evil people? The Western world is attempting to deal with terrorists that are causing suffering in this world. What happens when we begin to eliminate or imprison them? The more we are successful in eliminating them, more people appear to replace them. In our communities, no matter how hard law enforcement attempts to eliminate the gangs, they continue to increase in membership. Could it be that the body becomes infected with evil? Is evil something that can be transmitted from one person to another like a virus? And if evil is transmitter, can it also be eradicated? In the Book of Prophecy (Ofudesaki) is written:
Among all mankind, there is no one who is evil.
It is only a bit of dust stuck on. 1-53
What are these dusts that become ingrained in the soul? In the Book of Prophecy is the following:
These paths (dusts) are miserliness, covetousness, self-love,
greed, and arrogance. These are the dusts. 3-96
It is these dusts that we must eliminate. It is not the body we must eliminate. In the Book of Prophecy, it is said that God will begin to eliminate these dusts from mankind. God has given us a special prayer to help mankind understand these dusts in our minds, and also to help us remove these evils from our minds. It is God that will eventually eliminate the evils in the world so that all mankind will live a joyous life. We must ask God to help us by prayer.
