Writing and etymology in Korean
선의 전략
[seon-ui jeonlyag]
善의 戰略
善의 (선의) [seon] – of goodness
戰略 (전략) [jeonlyag] – strategy

The strategy of good is different from the behavior of evil. Evil strikes and plunders; good initially suffers damage, but then it is compensated. This is the strategy goodness follows.

Why can’t you attack first? Initially, the dominant position in the Universe should have belonged to good, but instead evil took the initiative. Aggression is a sign of evil. When the attacker causes harm, he must pay for what he has defiled.

God’s strategy is to defend, not to attack. In the same way, people on the side of good take blows, but do not attack. They cannot be aggressors, since the Creator is not an aggressor, and they are trying to follow His example. Good people take blows, endure, but never give up. Therefore, they have a right to compensation.

We can trace this principle throughout history: evil attacks first and loses, while good is attacked but ultimately wins. If you look at the World War I. It was evil that attacked first, and it was defeated, just like World War II: those who attacked first were defeated. It always seems to the aggressor that he will certainly win, so his troops rush into battle. However, no one can win by breaking Heavenly Law.

Evil attacks and good defends itself, so the position of those who are attacked is closer to God. Good must condemn evil and destroy it. Sometimes in our lives we have to go against the grain in order to do the right thing. When a crisis comes, the most important thing is for the good side to rally together.

The strategy of good is to take the first blow of evil, love it, and then deprive evil of everything. God does not take anything by force from evil; first of all He gives His love, sacrifices Himself, accepts blows and is even ready to give His life. It is obvious that He cannot introduce the source of universal peace without employing just such a strategy.
