When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love. Where evil men seek to perpetrate an unjust ‘status quo’, good men must seek to bring into being a real order of justice. – Martin Luther King Jr
Why is this so? Science! Evil is not legitimate, not of God. Good, Principle/Love/God is imperative, is the inevitable annihilation of evil - light dispels darkness.
We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was “legal” and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was “illegal.” It was “illegal” to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler’s Germany. Even so, I am sure that, had I lived in Germany at the time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers. – Martin Luther King Jr
On what basis? Science of being.
"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?" (Romans)
"God is the lawmaker, but He is not the author of barbarous codes... You will learn that in Christian Science the first duty is to obey God, to have one Mind, and to love another as yourself."(S&H)
