Opposites In the Bible
—Bible Things that are Poles Apart

oppos The Bible often presents us with a choice of two contrasting things that are poles apart. Each of the lessons in this series takes one such pair of opposites as its topic. Here's the list. Touch any title next to an arrow in the list below.

arrow Good and Evil —the Battle of Right Against WrongThe main “opposites” in the Bible of course include Good and Evil. The age old struggle of good against evil still rages. But these are not equal opposites, and good will be victorious.

arrow Truth and Error —Truth’s Source, Scope, and SubstanceThe Bible often mentions truth as opposed to error. Truth and falsehood are among the most basic of all Bible opposites. Read this lesson on truth.

arrow Light and Darkness —In Which Will You Walk?The word “light” in the Bible often has the spiritual sense of that which brings enlightenment to those in spiritual darkness. Thus Jesus and his message are called “light”. Read this lesson to see how essential is this light to your life!

arrow Wisdom and Foolishness —What Makes One Wise?The Bible compares the wise with fools. Wisdom and foolishness are among the most important Bible Opposities. We ask the question: what makes one wise?

arrow Knowledge and Ignorance —Learn Christ or Know NothingYou can know God and his will for you, or you can be ignorant of the truth about God. Is your heart in a state of knowledge or ignorance? That's a question of absolute first importance.

arrow Remembering and Forgetting —Living in the PastPeople say you shouldn't live in the past. However, in our relationship with God, the past, present, and future, are all one. Remembering Jesus is living in the past. But forgetting Jesus is destroying your future.

arrow Innocence and Guilt —What Does the Bible Teach?Another pair of opposites in the Bible is innocence and guilt. We study the arrival of guilt, an argument about guilt, and the answer to guilt.

arrow Beginning and EndGod has neither beginning nor end. His creation will end in a new beginning. Evil has a beginning and its end will be everlasting.
