Reason To Believe-Conflict Between Right and Wrong

January 26th, 2016

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Exploration, today’s reason to believe is the inner conflict between right and wrong.

If you ever felt the tension between the desire to do what is right and the tendency to do what is wrong, you are not alone. Even the prophets and apostles of the Bible experienced this tension.

We see this reality in Romans 7:18, where the Apostle Paul wrote, “ I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do-this I keep on doing.” Lamenting his sinful nature, Paul concludes, “What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?”

By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Paul offers a solution by which we can overcome the struggle and the condemnation from our failures.

In Romans 7:25, he says, “Thanks be to God-through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Divine help to overcome the conflict between right and wrong is a reason to believe in God’s good news.
