Contrast the depiction of wickedness or corruption in Gilgamesh and The Iliad. Compare these depictions with the values or beliefs in the following scripture: “You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.” Galatians 5:13-15 (NIV).
