God, Good, and Evil Series

Philosophers, provocateurs, poets, and pundits examine the philosophical and religious questions of good and evil, of moral judgement and free will.
Is "goodness" an important concept of God — an infinite projection of love, manifest in the lives of people? Or is "goodness" whatever produces the best consequences in the lives of people, especially with regard to their states of well being as defined by themselves? How can what is "good" for one person, be considered "evil" by another? Every language has a word expressing "good" in the sense of "having the right or desirable quality" and "bad" in the sense "undesirable". A sense of moral judgement, and a distinction between "right and wrong, good and bad" are cultural universals. If that's the case, then why are these "black and white" concepts so hard to define? Where are you on the grayscale?
