Culdians do not equate Evil with scriptural ‘sins’, nor with the breach of priestly prohibitions. All that is conducive to the progress, wellbeing, happiness of humankind and fulfillment of its destiny, is considered Good, while all that hinders or contravenes this is Evil. To Culdians Good and Evil do not stand at opposite poles, but are intertwined with the fabric of life. There is some degree of Good in even the most Evil thing, and sometimes even the best attempts at Good can become contaminated with Evil. Culdians do not believe in a personalized Devil, but realize that certain human thoughts, designs, desires and acts have contaminated the metaphysical ‘thought sea’, so that it is possible for individuals ot be influenced towards Evil.
