In the Garden, Eve first questioned GOD's motives; second, she desired what was forbidden; third, she ate what was forbidden, fourth, she justified her actions by giving what was forbidden to her husband.  And so it is with all evils we see in the World.  The progression is the same.  I see nothing wrong in doing that.  I want to do that.  I did that.  I will get others to do it also.  The next evil then becomes easier to do--leading to big evils.

  1. The self-serving nature blinds those expressing it. David first longed for Bathsheba; then he took her; tried to hide it, and finally made her a widow so she could be his wife. Natan then told David a story that enraged him into condemning the rich man in the story. Only then were his eyes opened. Notice the path of ever greater evils he followed.

  2. Matt 5:39 - "But I say unto you that ye resist not evil, but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also." Following this teaching suppresses the self-serving nature's expression. When the self-serving nature is expressed, it is fed and grows accordingly--producing emotional hate, divisiveness, and spiritual blindness.
