Book of Revelation Theme of Good vs. Evil Quotes

At its heart, Revelation is really just an old fashioned epic of good vs. evil. On one side, you've got the bad guys, complete with multiple heads and bad intentions. On the other side, God himself and all his homies. It's clear from the beginning that good is going to win this one—after all, that's the whole point of an apocalypse. But evil is still going to give it a go. Sorry, guys. Nice try. Enjoy your consolation prize—an eternity in the Lake of Fire.

Questions About Good vs. Evil

  1. How do the good guys look different from the bad guys? What does this say about them?
  2. Why is evil so gosh-darn appealing? Is the fact that people follow the Beast kind of understandable?
  3. The Dragon gives the beasts authority, but who gave the Dragon authority?
  4. Evil hardly even makes a dent in the forces of good. Did they ever even have a chance?
