In our novels CONFLICT seems to be MAN AGAINST MAN.
In reality the Bible defines the origin of conflict as MAN AGAINST GOD.
Read Matthew chapter 24.
Jesus lists signs of His return.
48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’
49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards.
50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of.
51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
