There are many theories, the basis of which can be found in the wiki links provided. I believe that LOST characters are, well, human. They contain a mixture of black/white evil/good and the idea is that it is our choices that determine what "side" of the "game" we play. What is right and what is wrong is relative to the situation. The Monster seems to "judge" according to Locke and the monster has been called the "Security System" of the island. The Island is a big moral playground and Jacob and the MiB are currently on difference sides of the moral fence.
