I’ve thought a bit about this lately. The best definition I have so far is that evil is causing harm for the sake of causing harm and for other purposes.
That is, someone who causes harm and gets enjoyment out of it is still causing harm for the sake of causing harm. However, someone who gets angry and wants to hurt others for the sake of hurting them is also acting in an evil manner.
However, this also means that greed is not evil, because it is not to cause harm, but to profit.
Agree/disagree? What’s your definition of evil? Leave a comment and let us know.
