A Closer Look at Good and Evil

Using newspapers and magazines, students look for articles, pictures, cartoons or headlines which reflect the following two types of evil: physical evil that results from accidents or natural causes and moral evil that results from the freely chosen attitudes and actions of people (sin).

Physical Evil: http://www.smh.com.au/world/super-typhoon-haiyan-philippines-death-toll-fears-mount-as-armed-looters-appear-20131112-2xcu5.html

The typhoon, Haiyan, has majorly effected the Philippines and has killed approximately 10000. This typhoon is a physical evil because it was naturally caused and was not a morally evil decision.

Moral Evil: http://sixtyminutes.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8751742

This article is a valid example moral evil. the bullies are morally wrong and need to be strongly talked to so they have a clear understanding of what they are doing. This is an example of moral evil because they chose to be mean and it wasn’t natural.
