In the thinking of Jesus the kingdom of god involves the inescapable separation of the Good and the evil in daily choices. It invites us to responsible decision Between alternatives in the Light of standards set by the mind of Christ. As we move through the Days the sum total of experience is caught in our nets. There Are values to be cherished and others to be discarded. One of the tragedies behind the Iron curtain is in the confusion of values the destruction of standards of valid judgment. As or. Zhivago put it a the main misfortune the Root of All evil to come was the loss of Confidence in tile value of ones own opinion. People imagined it was out of Date to follow their own moral but if we All sing in the same chorus and live by other Peoples notions character has no meaning. If we cannot Trust our own moral sense or the ideals that have their roots in the kingdom of god then Choice is Blind and no one thing is in reality better than anything else. Jesus came As a Symbol of the Kindom he preached. In the Light of his spirit men awoke to a new knowledge of right and wrong Good or evil. He became for All Mankind a Safe guide for moral judgment. Our father we thank thee for the right to choose Between alternatives and for the spirit of him who guides us wisely. Amen.
