Just a word from the Scriptures: From the Bible, Psalm 37:30: The godly offer good counsel; they teach right from wrong. Proverbs 1:7: Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
Both the above mean that the good do the right and the wrong is done by the bad. Lord's solace is just fear and desire, is my personal feeling. And when you do good always, then the God is always with you, immaterial of your beliefs.
