The Lie at the Root of Evil - 2 Samuel 11:1-15

1y ago
SOURCE  

Description

The deception that leads to genuine evil, argues M. Scott Peck, is the lie we tell ourselves when we insist that we are innocent. From King David ordering the murder of Uriah to John Edwards spending millions of dollars we see people trying to hide their personal failings to maintain a false image of perfection that can only mean that we do more really believe in forgiveness. One of the great gifts of the spiritual life is the belief that we are not innocent but we can be forgiven, reconciled, healed and given the opportunity to begin again.
