Published by Artur Olczykowski
The ultimate origin of evil and human sin is indeed a deep question;
but only by engaging with it are we empowered to handle sin and evil
and find a way of victory. To blame it all on a personal Devil with
horns and tail and pitchfork seems to me to be a form of escapism, a
dodging of the question, just quickly going for a simplistic but wrong
answer.
