Cause and enemy

15 April 2021

Jealousy and envy are the cause of every evil and the enemy of every good. They were the cause of Cain’s murder of Abel, the reason why Esau wanted to get rid of Jacob and why Saul hounded David. Jealousy and envy blind the intellect, besmirch the soul, darken the soul, sadden God, bring joy to the demons, close the heavens and open hell.
