If we know how to do good, why do we determine to do bad?
THE Machiavellian philosopher affirmed with surprising harshness that human beings were not only evil by nature, but that all of them, which make up the collective of his people, were weak, unconscious and fickle. This statement is not new for our context, since the dawn of faith in God, we see how each of the prophets, in his own way, also affirmed this saying. Let us see, then, the case of the prophet Isaiah: From the sole of the foot to the head there is nothing healthy in him, but wound, swelling and putrid sore; they are not cured, bandaged, or softened with oil. Your land is destroyed, your cities set on fire, your land before you eaten by foreigners, and desolate as the desolation of foreigners. Now let us see the statement of the Apostle Paul:
“AND I KNOW THAT IN ME, THAT IS, IN MY FLESH, GOOD DOES NOT DWELL; BECAUSE WANTING GOOD IS IN ME, BUT NOT DOING IT.”
Only when the Gospel of Christ really makes an echo in us, we are aware of the reality that surrounds us and that logically also lives in each one of us. Yes, unfortunately we are bad by nature. It is not only about the original sin dogma of the human being, but we are talking about the Machiavellian and destructive nature of the same human being. Perhaps, for this reason, Jesus Christ affirmed: And he said to all: If anyone wants to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
“BECAUSE I DO NOT DO THE GOOD THAT I WANT, BUT THE EVIL THAT I DO NOT WANT, THAT I DO.”
To try to avoid having an incongruous life in us, we must follow the advice of Christ, die to ourselves, to that nature that binds and condemns us. In addition to this, we should be aware of the need to live with the Mind of Christ that the Holy Spirit of God gave us and thus, we can imitate Jesus Christ and be those little Christs that we are called to be.
God bless you.
