This viewpoint denies the importance of one's desires and choices, while also promoting the inevitability of the dissolution of Creation. "It's only a matter of time before it's over." Not only is this pessimistic way of thinking chillingly depressing, it's also an easy way for people to excuse others choices.
Evil is not a force, in my opinion, but instead is a result of a choice, or choices, one makes. Lucifer chose to deny God and chose to try and exalt himself over his creator. His angelic band of cohorts chose to follow his lead. Cain chose to kill his brother. Hitler chose to target the Jewish people for extermination. Many times the intent is not to commit an act of evil, yet the result is one nonetheless. Many acts of evil have occurred because people made poor choices, based on fear or the like. The internment of Japanese-American citizens and the confiscation of their property in the USA during WWII is a good example.
As a writer I prefer this ideology. It allows me to more fully develop characters based on the decisions they make (or choose not to make). It gives me room to develop characters that choose to sacrifice themselves for others, allows me to show that good intentions don't always result in good results and that people really do have a choice in the matters of their lives. I believe it makes for better storytelling.
As a man this ideology allows me to try every day to do good and not to do evil. It allows me to believe in a merciful God and to hope that everything won't be worse tomorrow. it allows me to be an optimist, instead of a pessimist (or as they like to call themselves, realists).
